Yup my box from the same seller seemed to be in a hard battle with a warehouse person or something but none the less not ripped though. I do know that the little clear round sealing sticker at the top of the box was never removed though until i did so.. Also i had no probs with the contents inside..

 

I had placed my order on a thursday and received my packed on a monday of the following  week. 

 

Kinda fast for USPS if you ask me and yeah less than 150.00 for my set was not bad either..

Oh, well. All is good. I'm satisfied that mine are in fine shape. I don't think that we'll see anymore offerings from that seller on this hp, but you never know.

yeah my first ever but i don't like how the shoe lace for the wire coverings goes into the housing of the headphones though.. I rushed it but i had to hear how silver wire mods sound  lol.. I will be adding some copper to the mix the silver is a bit blahh and thin sounding but alil more detailed  with a tad more snap in the bass..

I think stock sounds the best its hard to tell but the ATH-AD700 pads are like earmuffs very comfy..

 

 

Pleather  has alot of holow boxed in sound

Its done allready and i did not take many pics of how i did it but there is a whole thread on here on how to do it... I also just added some copper to the mix with the 1 strand of silver for the - terminals..

Yeah its hard to tell between stock and the plush ATH-AD700 moded pad..The pleather is out the question although i preferr  the pleather  when i play fps games and for music i use the other pads...

 

To end i think any type of pad if it is not of the same inside diameter will close in the sound stage of the driver..I think possibly if any pad that  covers the drivers outter edges if it is of a smaller inside diameter will close in the soundstage but if that's what your after maybe not a bad idea because the soundstage is freakishly wide

PH0..

 

I have a  Kobalt 10 piece  Precision screwdriver set that contained that number that fit inside the holes to remove the screws
