Nice work (apart from the driver ;-)  What did you use for the inner headband?  Looks comfy.  Tia

Wow just finished reading this epic thread. I won't commit to too much but the gears are turning in my head and ideas are leaking so there may be some fun new TP's in the world whenever I get a chance to actually try out what I'm thinking. I have an old broken pair of Audio-technica A-5's that I might cannibalize the headband from..hmmm.

 

BTW I imagine someone would have mentioned it already but anybody know if you can buy just the drivers somewhere? It seems like such a waste to buy the whole headphone just for the driver...

 

Oh, and anybody ever try and make an angled baffle like in the audio-technicas? I have some a700's and I was thinking the angled driver could be fun, but it might make the baffle too big since there isn't much room in the cup, not to mention it might change the damping characteristics too much.

It's easier to just use angled pads instead of angling the entire cup/baffle. In theory they should work the same way.

Thanks.  Here in Minneapolis we have a place called Axman Surplus and it has all sorts of strange goodies.  I used a circular type foam cushion thingy along with cardboard, leather and glue.  It's definitely comfortable.

QFT ... but the subtleties of the quilting which yield a rich 3d look as so evident in posts 1278 & esp. 1280 are gone ... now look more like zebra; very different appearance, but still good as u say.
