SR60-Mod - Page 49  

post #721 of 5003

Hey, long time no hear!

 

That would be great. Also, some head-fiers are in the works to organise a head-fi meet in the near future. Here is the thread: http://www.head-fi.org/forum/thread/529400/meet-in-the-netherlands-benelux/30#post_7195055

 

When it comes to modding the MS-1 I think the recent MS1000 mods are a must. They consist of lining the pads with fabric (I used an old t-shirt) and punching the holes in the back of the driver (I have four of them right now).

gotta love the red grill

post #724 of 5003

My mods are going slow.removed the drivers from the cups the other day. Used a hair dryer it was easy peasy. Then they sat around for a couple of days waiting for the new cable (four braided silver wire) to show up. Attached the new cable today and they are producing sound (yeah), but now the new cups need a littte something something before I put the drivers in. There is a wood working club pretty close to my house that I'm going to visit hopefully tommorow to notch some holes for the cable.

 

Still debating with myself about how many holes I should vent. My plan is to use G cush pads which I just orsered from Todd today, so should I just go ahed and vent all 10 or will 6 make tt thuder too?

 

For the grills I picked up some screen patches at Ace hardware today, it seems like they will work perfect, I'm just not quite sure how to attach them. anybody have any ideas?

That's probably good advice but arent the G cush pads going to effectively offset some of that. I was thinking six. I understand your logic I suppose. Perhaps just six before I glue them. Anybody have any ideas about how to attach some screen to a big ol' hole. I suppos I could just wrap it over the hole and staple it but that might not look so good.

 

 

EDIT: BTW Noinoi24 love your work.

what I did was used thicker mesh (In my case, a mesh letter-tray from staplles) for wooden cups I cut an octagon, and proceded to fold the edges up. continue doing this until you have a bowl-like insert, then put iit in the headphone and push out on the flat parts so as to fill it out and make it round. The only problem is that you need a dremel to cut the mesh, and you need to make releif cuts on the parts being folded up so they can fold together.

I just did a mod for a friend in the UK.  I was going to stop at four but I've got cocobolo shells and Dynamat.  Between them, it was just irresistible to hit all the holes.  The combination was out of this world - extreme hard wood shells plus a damping that doesn't play.  I can't get to sleep.  I can't get myself to turn my iPod off.

I'm starting a silly series of YouTube videos about modding.  This is Part 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iy4JtWTjhqQ

 

In this installment, I make the decision to take a knife to a brand-new pair of defenseless SR60s.  At one point, I almost shouted, "It puts the lotion on or it gets the hose!"
