Nope, though on the other hand that's some pretty expensive price! I find these at the dollar store.

Might be pretty interesting in vibration damping sandwiches but for sound... well, worth trying out.

I went to Michael's and got the Creatology foam that wje got instead. It's only 2mm thick, but its adhesive.

Well, this is the pimp daddy of vibration damping: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GpesXpPoN8c

 

Good luck fitting them inside the T50RP cups, though....but you could always stick them on the outside evil_smiley.gif

Oh there's plenty of space... might be interesting to try that in place of the plasticine.

Haha, well, I wasn't implying any vibration dampeners for headphones, just as general use.

But those look interesting and yummy.

Well, buy.com had a "buy three, get an extra one for free" together with free shipping on those Moongel's so I couldn't resist and bought a whole bunch of those, they do wonders as isolation feet! But cutting them nicely in order to fit into the tiny squares of the baffles seems rather hard to accomplish because this is really not stiff whatsoever and cutting them to the right dimensions is easier said than done IMO, much like cutting jelly....This said, it would prolly be one of the best material for the job indeed and it's feather-light too.

 

Or you could install small patches in the four corners of the T50RP cups.

 

I was personally wondering how to put them to good use in the yamies, maybe replacing the stock felt that stands in front of the vent holes.

Bump. Or if you only have tested the 940 cushions, was they easy to get on? To get the 990 on is nearly impossible..

Probably equally difficult to acquire (not difficult at all), but the 940 pads are about 30% cheaper.

 I can attest to that.

 

EDIT: I wrote the opposite of what I meant :)
