Really want to repaint my HD800's to jet black but local painting services charge so much and I really don't want to do it myself.

well, i wouldnt want to paint my headphones.

 

But if you want to make your headphones match the look of the Mainstream hype the Beats are getting..

check out this guy (Casey Neistat) making some Bose QuietComfort15's into beats

A tron theme would be awesome.

Using a pin stripping brush you could easily make it very clean looking line with enough practice.

Maybe a very very little weak, but almost same.

 

But it is way better in looks.

Those Senn's look amazing. Nice work on them! 

 

Anyone remember the guy who painted his HD600's white? That was a slick paint job!

Clean job! How do you go about painting the computer case? What type of paint do you use?

 

I need to do some homework on painting electronic appliances. I just don't know where to start. Anyone has documentation, a website with details on how to paint different surfaces into difference types of finishes? I'd really like to know how to do a piano finish...

 

I just did a "good enough" paint job on my starving student. It was more a learning experience than anything else. The so called "epoxy enamel" paint is not as hard as epoxy resin, even though it's advertised as so. I used Krylon's, and it can be scratched with your nails. The Hammond enclosure is anodized aluminum, which is a porous surface. I thought the paint would stick well to it, but it does not. My glue gun dropped some hot glue on the paint while I was assembling the amplifier, and removing the glue took the pain off with it. It also took a dozen coats of white paint on the transformer to get a good even coat. Conclusion: it's the last time I paint without a primer coat first, and a clear coat last.

That computer was piano bronze at last. But it is very hard to do unfortunately.

 

Wet sanding with 2000 grid sandpaper in every way (like x and + ways) and a few coats and patience. At last clear varnish and after a month wax polish. Thats how you get piano look.

 

I used Duplicolor spray paint. Always warmed up the spray can and shaked a few minutes. Also you have to paint in a room without dust.

 

 

But about notebook painting, I dont recommend that. Notebook gets hotter than before after painting.

 

Yours is also nice I think.

Bought this gun for Automotive Repair, decided it would make a good gun for headphone painting too :D
