I know there are programs which will allow you to scan 3d image of object and convert to vector but figuring out proper thickness based on material densities is already giving me a headache. Not to mention whether the drivers are removable by the untrained ....

 

Oh Lord... what have I done???  ;)

 

After laying off all things gear-related, I bit the bullet on a pair of black Vegan pads.  B&H Photo has a nice price, but they are back ordered.  Fortunately, I'm not in a hurry.

 

Mmmmmmmmm, carpet tacks... See, they'd go real nice into your woodies.  REAL nice.  Y'all bring 'em round to the next Appalachian Head-Fi Meet, ya hear  (cue the banjos ;-)

Quit harping on my 1st mod attempt. I'm telling you the soundstage was amazing ...

Very nice. They seem to be popular with many HE-6 modders as well.

Excellent!  I'm more impressed with the apparent build quality!  :D

Perhaps this was the concept behind the Abyss design? wink.gif
