I have missed alot of information in this thread. I recently got the last pair of hf2s and am not happy with the finish of the cups. I want to take them apart and have the metal reanodized. I will most likely ruin the wood and was curious if anyone is making the the cups the drivers sit in with the lip for the pads. I am going backwards in the thread and have not come across this info yet so if anyone knows please let me know. I am debating if I should just return these and move on. If its possible to fix then I will reconsider.
