Sony MDR-XB500 & ATH AD700 Paint & (kinda) Mod

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, haven't been on here in forever! And I never really was on here as one of the guru's somewhat, always on here asking, 'what is the best headphone for gaming?' ' What should I buy for under $75?'

Now, I have some goodies for everyone.

I started thinking of modding and painting my headphones, because they were getting boring. And I wear my XB500's in the gym, and I wanted them to look a lot cooler.

I didn't really mod anything besides change the AD700s up a bit. I changed the wired on the cable going from the Left speaker to the Right, and took out the ear pads. And in the process accidentally taking out the wire on the transfer over the head....but no matter because....

Planned Mods: New Headband for both cans, just need someone to help me on what to use. Complete wire redesign on both cans.

Updated with some new pix.

If anyone has some ideas for new cables for the XB500s let me know.

This XB500 variant already exists (unsure about US availability) http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-MDRXB500-Headband-Headphones-Extra/dp/B005FVC4RQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1342890819&sr=8-1

 

Looks so much nicer to my eyes than the black/silver

Yeah, I was doing a google search and found those. I bought Shure SRH 440's today, but I hope they come out with a white pair of XB500s.cool.gif
