Beautiful. That's exactly what I was looking for.
If you wanna wait until the NYC meet I could bring some of the mod materials for you so you don't have to go out and buy it yourself...esp the modeling clay as I don't really want to ship that but don't want it sitting here either. Of course I would need a reminder about that..
Oh hey, apparently my T50RPs arrived at Long & McQuade today. I guess I'd better go pick them up...hm, all I have right now to mod them with is plasticine (sculpey actually, but it should work...) and possibly some cotton balls. I guess I'll have to see what I can do. Experimentation, I guess. :P
For anyone interested right now, here are some available:
$82.99 and free shipping.
damn you for posting this, lol. I found it earlier yesterday and he had 8 for sale. come home from work just now to find 1 left and I was "forced" to buy it. lol
Yea, lol I had one on reserved at performance audio. didn't need another one. He called me and said 'yea, that's ok, we've got a guy here standing right here dying for it.'
I asked if I could talk to my fellow headfier. ;)
Pricy, but not too bad. The only places I've seen them sell them in lots of 50 or 100. While technically cheaper, I don't really want to pay $30 for 50 covers. (or $60 for 100)
Well, I just came back with the pair I ordered. When I plugged them in first, the right channel wasn't working for some reason - but after jiggling around with the plug on the left earcup it fixed itself. Hopefully this doesn't come back...
Anyway, these really do sound quite nice. I can definitely hear a ton of plasticky resonance though. Guess I'll have to see what I can do about that.
Funny thing, though, I ran into someone in the store who was looking for a pair of T50RPs too - and apparently I was the first person to actually inquire about these before too. It's a small world, I guess. :P
^^ oh yes, despite the relatively scarce postings around here, this headphone has really taken off. That plug issue you mentioned -happens to me all the time- It's inda ritualistic for me to just jiggle them a little bit every time I put them on. ; ) Your modding journey will take you to places that are something amazing with this headphone.
