Yeah I kinda feel bad for everyone who committed to my v1 jergpads, then again, I did too, twice actually. So I don't feel that bad
Actually had to buy new pleathers to formulate this new version, so it's not like I scammed you guys by hidding "the true" version, but rather it's a natural evolution that costed me too. For those of ya who have already done the v1, think of it as a good opportunity to redo and refine your pad modding skills, since you've already had a chance to do all that damping hole cutting, it won't be testing waters any more.
Anyway I have close to finished the text sections of the v2.0 guide now, all I need now is to receive the candidate pleathers/velours from another user, and do the modifications on them and take the appointed photos (about 25 or so photos needed at specific steps to fit with my pre-written guide).
I don't feel bad at all!!!!! This mod (even V1 but I just did the dampening not the vents) really helped my HE500's. Your mod removed the biggest irritation for me, sibilance somewhere in the 9k range. If I just wasted a $20 pair or pleathers, so be it. Best $20 upgrade I've ever done.
