There are plenty of options on AE, but I'm not sure about the quality of them. Any advice about what to look for?
So did you ever get drivers for your hp150?

Don't look like that'll happen (at least not stock ones). Did manage to get in touch with the distributor. They can't get parts, and the best I could hope for is if they get any warranty returns (broken headband or such) maybe I can get those to scavenge parts from.

Was talking to another guy (forgot his name already) however about trying an ortho transplant:D

That sounds interesting,

Could be expensive too. When I pm'd the guy he wondered if it would be worth the cash of trying it on the 150s (I think he charges ~100 USD if you include the drivers).

The biggest roadblock right now is getting a pair of affordable planars (I have no idea what they're worth), then there's fact that I'm clueless when it comes to tuning things.

The build itself shouldn't be too hard. just need to make a new baffle to hold the square driver

You could just buy a T50RP.

How about the hd 650 that massdrop is selling for $200. Seems like the best deal ever.

Very tempted… hopefully the USD has an election fueled meltdown:D

Think I'd rather get another pair of closed phones tho. You know, one of each flavour (that's where the pm3 is a bonus - closed and planar)

A common Canadian wish.

Would like to add that "Alpha Pads" do fit on these cans. Just takes a bit of stretching for the first time, though mine have been stretched out due to pad rolling so it is pretty easy now to put on and take off. Makes the hp150's sound less harsh / sibilant with a tad more bass. Comfort is 10/10. Also have blu tac applied to the back of the cups. Honestly think the beyer angled pads material isn't the greatest for these cans.

Good to know

 

This place needs an Alpha pads gallery thread

 

I like the look of them on dt150 and mt220
