Another beyer woody: The Chocolate

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
I just can't help myself, i love how these things look woodied, so i keep wood'ing them Thanks people for all suggestions in this thread
Those were genuine leather cognac pads, before i treated them with leather conditioner(great tip\advice by Skylab) I also made the matching headband since stock is so ugly.

Later i decided that black\mahogany combination headband look better than whole mahogany.

The cup:

The Chocolate!

And the best part-the plastic buttons with same grainy pattern as the main plastic housing:

Also, i poke holes on the underside of the pads:

No, those are new desing DT 770\80 which use the same headband slots as customer version now. But the "forks" which hold the cup are black(silver in customer versions).

That looks very good. Why did you make holes in the pads?

Those holes are supposed to be there. Manufaktur pads which are for music listening headphones have them. The aviation pads haven't. The reason it sound better with holes because sound waves\reflections which go from the cup through the white acoustic screen are soaked by the foam inside the pad and when there're no holes they just "bump" and reflect off the solid plasticky surface.
