If you decide to use either of the Shures, you might want to tone down the treble a little with small pieces of some transpore tape and adhesive craft felt behind the dust cover or where the dust cover would have been, in the case of the velours.


Alcantara... :eek: I know what I want know... Thanks, I hope they will have it in store that I can test it today.
