They're very much "meh" out of the box, I even put them for sale....it's only after blutack'ing the baffle that I started seeing the light. And yes we're pretty much all fanboys here in the sense that we are willing to buy sources and amps far more expensive than the phone itself, because once fully pimped and fed off a killer rig, it'd take quite a lot of cash to ridicule it. And personally I cannot stand dual entry headphones, and all the top tiers orthos are...so T50RP it is

IME, they need opamps w/ at least 50mA output...otherwise they sound "thin" and deep bass is inexistent.

These IC's are too heavy for headphones use anyway, ppl can complain about stock cables all they want but they virtually feel wireless compared to those thick IC's or ridiculous quad braid audiophool bs that goes against every physics rule in the book(signal crosstalk, etc).

Same here, there are so many things I should/will/may try, but well
When I get the AcoustiPak, I'll try to find the motivation to mod one of my spares.

Optional: Try different diameters and lengths of pad "lifters" to find the one best for you.
I personally use these to angle earpads, they're immune to sweat: http://www.amazon.com/Bormioli-Fido-Canning-Replacement-Gaskets/dp/B0001BMYIE
You can stack them, cut them, shape them all you want. I guess Amazon will soon put them with the 840 pads and plasticine as recommended items when you buy a T50RP
