I am messing around with these, now that I have some other headphones that I can use while these are out of commission. I have modified these quite a bit already. Detachable cables, with 4 pin mini-XLR plugs in the cups, also split the cable so it goes to both ear cups. The cable is a Mogami cable I cannibalized. I also put 100 ohm resisters in, so I could drive the phones a little harder with my amp. Tube amps seem to sound better when they are pushed a little. They sound really good. The Resister mod seems to have tamed the highs a bit, and tightened up the bass. However, in my haste, I damaged one of the drivers. I'm waiting on Sennheiser to get back to me about selling me some replacements. My question is, since I'm modding them anyway, what ear pads will work on these? I'd love to use some of the velour pads that are on the higher end open ear headphones, a la, HD 600/650. If Sen. will sell me new drivers, I might as well pick up some more comfortable pads. The fake pleather pads stick to my skin when it's hot.
