Swapping Portapro drivers into UR40 chassis and removing the foam lining

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Since I'm hopefully getting Portapros soon, and there's been mixed reviews on the headband, I kinda wanna try swapping the KSC75 drivers that the UR40s come with out with the Portapro drivers, and opening up the earcups and exposing the drivers by removing the foam liner.

 

I know it would make them more comfortable, but how would it affect the sound at all?

 

Side note: may get some KSC75s and put them in the Portapro headband along with some PX200 earpads if this mod is successful, along with getting some velours for the UR-Pros. :p

Try it and let us know. 

 

Sometimes you just have to go out and have an adventure. Sometimes it sucks (usually it sucks) but sometimes its really nice. As long as you are in the right mindset it is always fun.

Going to leave the Portapros stock except for swapping the earpads out with PX200 earpads, and get some KSC75s to install in the UR40s. For one, just love the look of the stock Portapro and the PX200 earpads would probably improve on that as well as comfort, and the sound to a point because they're more isolating pads than the stock foam-rubber pads, meanwhile the KSC75s seem more like they belong in an openback circum-aural enclosure than on an openback supra-aural headband or on clips, and AFAIK, they should snap right in to the UR40 driver housing.
