AKG K702 Headband mods - Page 4

post #46 of 48

I have one, and I've used it on several occasions (not on my k702 though...). Like it a lot! Especially good when working on very thick / sturdy materials. The needles that it comes with are rather thick, mind you.

Next day I'm better again and put the headphones on again, a few hours later, headache again. No, it can't be the headband.

 

Third day in a row? Ok I need to do something about this, these things sound too good to give up.

 

I remember an old thread where someone cut off the bumps (this one DOES have 8 by the way) but no way am I going to do that...better to find a way to fill in the gaps than cut out the bumps.

 

My first attempt has given a significant increase to comfort, and while it itself isn't specifically filling in gaps it does soften the feeling of the bumps on one's head and hopefully this way I won't be plagued by chronic headaches...

 

If there are any tips fellow 70x users have, I will gladly take them, if you have pictures, even better.

 

Here is the wool pad mod I am currently sporting (thinking of doubling up when I can find some more):

Should have used some extra thick Always pads with wings :atsmile:
