wow..I'm enlightened. would you mind posting some effective mods with photos and instructions you did for the pioneer se-a1000 then ? ill be happy to remove all my mods done so far and implement yours. alternatively, I can buy a new set from amazon so that I can receive nirvana teaching from mod teacher like you on this headphone. quick quick show me some photos of your mods on this pioneer !!
I will if you send me your SE-1K or buy me a pair, which for what it's sound is worth I ain't going through a second effort to unveil what a 3 year sleeper sounds like (not good in my books) and definitely not a poor mans HD650 which is a joke of a claim/title the OP made in the first place.
