Sony MDR-ZX700 - Dynamat Extreme dampening inside!
Will Ship To: Anywhere
I'm selling my modified Sony MDR-ZX700.
This is basically the exact same as the MDR-7510, except the gimbals are silver instead of black and it has a straight cable instead of a coiled one. They have a nicely balanced sound with exceptional noise isolation, especially with the mod described below.
They have been used only sparingly, because I have way too many great headphones and only 1 head. Thus, they are in excellent condition both technically and cosmetically. Original box and paperwork are also included.
I applied Dynamat Extreme dampening on the inside of the cups, as well as the back of the driver magnet and surrounding plastic. This eliminates plastic resonances that cause distortion. I also applied a thin piece of cotton wool to the inside of the cups. It really is quite remarkable how much more refined sounding this mod makes the headphones, it sounds like a headphone from a higher class. The dynamat also makes the headphones feel more sturdy, as they dont have that cheap plastic noise when you handle them, and they weigh a tad bit more.
I'm always quite OCD about both cups producing the exact same sound, so I carefully weighed the amount of dynamat I applied on each part, and made sure I applied exactly the same amount on each cup. So you can be sure that the sound is perfectly L/R balanced.
This really is a steal if you consider the sound quality this thing produces, so please no lowballing.
Asking price is 80 euros including PayPal fees, excluding shipping costs.
