hah, yeah vinyl feels like a torture on the T50RP.

I wonder if the SoundBurger can drive the T50RP straight from the headphone out :D

i'm really impressed with the sound pumping out of these.  i've since added some more modeling clay to the cavities on the driver gasket.  i've also left the covering over the backside of the driver intact and added 2.5 cotton balls inside each of the cups.  they're "triple sized" Target brand.  the cotton is covering the vent as well, but taping over the vent still has an effect on bass tuning.  

 

i'm going to leave these alone until my SA5000 pads arrive.

mrspeakers, how much do all of those materials cost to mod these phones? I think I'm just going to mod them myself and then see if they are for me or not.

Do you like them more than the Sennheiser HD600?

 

How do they compare out of the box to T20 V2?

Where can one get a nice replacement cable? Angled minijack in one end..

Hi!

in order to "bookmark" the most informative posts from THIS thread.

^Not sure about the angled locking jack. I just want to make it shorter.

How & where are people securing the craft felt to the back of the driver?  With glue? 2x sided tape?

post #2471 of 10597

Likely not the best solution, but while I have been playing around, I have been using Gorilla brand duct tape. I use a 1/4" strip around the outside edge. Eventually I will likely rubber cement it to the driver once I am sure I am happy. Which likely won't be anytime soon because I find myself tinkering every day.

Not sure if demand has exceeded supply to the extent that was implied a little earlier, but B&H now has them in stock.
