CAL!2 also has a mic input. Verified to work with Android phone. The sound from Mic is pretty decent. Not sure if this is important to any of you.

These also sound a little better with SRH750DJ pads as opposed to the stock ones. Better bass, soundstaging and mids. Maybe something similar but with a few holes on the inner side to let the drivers breath more may open up the soundstage, midrange, and treble further. Or perhaps compatible velour pads.
750 pads are almost the same, just stiffer, so bass, soundstaging, and midrange are less degraded by the overly soft stock pads. Alternatively, stiffen the inner side of the stock pads with several coats of plasti-dip, but that takes a long time and I don't feel like bothering with that. =p
Nice headphone, relatively on par with my HD360 and beats it at soundstaging, but seems less rugged and is less portable as well. I'll be sure to throw some Dynamat on the backs of the magnets later.
Edit: enjoying improved bass, overall cleaner sound, and better imaging after adding Dynamat, but the headband isn't all that comfortable. Well, HD360 isn't much of an improvement there, but its headband is better cushioned.

If you can find round, 80-90mm velour pads, you can try those.
DT770 velours are too big, but I placed them on and lightly pressed the headphone against my head to hold them in place. They lessened the bass but then the mids and treble became nasal-sounding and shrill. Back to the SRH750 pads, I went. I suppose that it may not be a great idea to allow the driver to control too much air between the baffle and your ear as far as CAL!2 is concerned.
On a side note, anyone tried Akasa Paxmate Plus open-cell acoustic foam in the cups? That will soften bass impact apart from removing enough of the reverb to make the headphone sound semi-open and may bring out details obscured by all the reverb.
It is some pretty useful modding material in general. What you would do is cover the depth of the cup completely with the stuff.post #305 of 3092/26/14 at 1:52pm
consider these two products:
I am wondering if i can do this:
Can i use the boompro which has a 3.5mm plug , connect it to the adapter (which turns 3.5mm to 2.5mm) and then connect it to CAL!2's audio jack ?
is this possible ?
If it is then I would consider buying it.
