You asked about the W5000 cups too. Sorry I can't help.

But can I ask what kind of mod are planning? Would be interested to know.

Has anyone compared these to the new w1000z? Any upgrade in fidelity?

Yeah I did, I'm assuming the cup volumes are the same so I'm asking here too. I have a Beyer DT770 Premium that I have installed some W5000 drivers in and would like to have the same sound as an actual W5000. They sound good as is but I think the bass response is different because the Beyer cups have more inner volume.

Wow that's pretty cool. Very interesting, someone in the T1 thread was adding T1 drivers to the DT770.

 

The circumference of the W5000 cup is slightly larger than the W1000X. The W5000 pads fit noticeably looser on the W1000X. The W1000X cups seem deeper than the W5000 cups. The location of the bass ports of the two headphones are different in design too. If you want I can post comparison pics of the two woodcups and the T1 (they might the same or similar size to the DT770) in the W5000 thread. The circumference of the W5000 cup is larger than the T1 as a guide. The AT drivers are 53mm whereas the T1 is 45mm. Not sure about the DT770.
 

Will try to get some general measurements  - any you're particularly interested in?

 

Gonna try and find a moment today or tomorrow, before or after last minute xmas shopping to get these up :D

Thanks for the info! The T1 and 770 cups are the same shape, but I don't think the T1 drivers will be as good in a closed cup. I'll look into the T1 thread and find that build to watch it. I wonder why he didn't use T5p drivers instead?

The only thing I really would like to know is he different the internal volumes differ, how close the backs of the drivers are to the cups and if there are any dampening materials in the cups.

Thanks!

I believe that they desired higher impedance drivers. Very interesting project nevertheless.

Ah right, that could be.
