maybe someone could mod it..paint it..attach a bigpad over it....

Hey, they're the only headphones that I've ever worn out in public. I gotta believe that they look okay!


They do look good.   Go out in public with confidence.  :D

That sucks.  My pair still looks like new (office use only though).

I think I think I caused the loose ring by bending it to relieve clamping, but I'm pretty sure that wouldn't account for the small indentation that formed on top on the headband.

OK I am thinking of using either some hard wood to make some oval disks the size of 840 pads and mount the disks on the M90 to hold the pads. Kind of like how the older Sony models like V6 work. Does that sound like a workable way to turn these into an over ear headphone?

Like Headphile C-pads?

both my friends i showed them to said they look really cool, too. i think they look very modern and sleek, even though i dont like them on me (but im the kind of kid that wears short sleeves over rolled-up long sleeves)

I didn't know about those but that is exactly what I was thinking except oval. If you pull the pads off the M90 I am thinking the disk could be indented to over the plastic disk the original pads go over. This would help the acoustic seal and could evenpossibly allow a person to place inset holes where the existing screws go with longer screws to hold everything together, either that or glue. If you drilled holes it would be completely reversible though.

I found a site where I could buy a sheet of hard maple anywhere from 1/16 to 1/8" thick that should work for the disks. I then just need to get enough tools to cut the wood, I am thinking a jig saw and small router would do the trick.

@Lorspeaker did something very similar I think. Maybe he will pipe up.

Looks like its time for a second pair.  Perhaps you can super mod your current pair.
