Casper is a great modder. Him and I are going to officially start a company sometime next year. Just working out the details this year. 

 

What type of sound are you looking for and what type of music do you like ?

that is awesome

 

i listen to a lot of punk/alt noise jazz metal sort of

think shellac, sonic youth, late period coltrane

i like a good snare and a firm kick

don't mind a little bass

something like my modded tr50p but a more open back sound

 

does that make sense?

 

thanks so much for the help

you guys are the reason i'm doing this project

Arty 

Have you burned in yet ??

Do not change anything before burnin..

 

Some filterwooll (the syntetic stuff used for filtering aquariums) often make a nice difference if you are plauged by siblans or boomy bass..

 

Also some foamdisc infront of the driver can make wonders.

No use spending dollars if you can reach the same by adding some cheap household stuff...

tried some thin cotton batting in front of the driver

helps a little packing behind the driver really  kills the bass

ordered some ad700 drivers and a pair of hm5 earpads

we'll see how it works

 

trying to keep  the whole project below $100

How much were the ad700 drivers? I'm just curious if the price has gone up. Last i checked they were like $13 i think shipped.   The hm5 pads will blow you away with their comfort.  If you got the pleather hm5 pads and the ad700 drivers you should get a very different sound. The pleather hm5 pads add a little to the bass and the ad700 aren't the bassest drivers but are very accurate and will produce a deep bass.

You need the syntetic kind, it is also used as stuffing of furry toys, does not cost much, cotton woll will collapse and be much denser..

It was 29 bucks shipped for the pair
I got the velours for comfort
Not looking for a ton of bass
I'm not adverse to picking up a set of pleathers
As they fit a lot of other cans
Any recommendations for packing etc.?
In the meantime gonna look for some synthetic fiber
See if that helps

Thanks for all the help
