    Broken Sennheiser PX 200II

    They're not really broken, but the volume control has a scratchy noise whenever it's turned, and also one side is always quieter than the other. Any way to fix this? Unfortunately, I cannot find my proof of purchase, so it's not available for warranty.

    PX200 II thread.

    Because the Porta Pros have one dang it.   I am getting to where I almost can't listen to another pair. When I first got these, I wasn't too impressed with the sound. But after a year and even a plug being replaced, I've warmed up to the sound so much. Such a natural, detailed, and airy...

    Does the removal of the cloth from an earpad of a headphone mean that the risk of damaging the driver is increased?

    So i took my Senn Px200-II's earpads, and removed the cloth bit inside, using scissors, in the hopes that it's clarity will improve. Now, it sounds a bit clearer and stuff, but i'm now worried that dust and other materials can now get into bits of the driver, and damage it. Will this happen...

    Sennheiser HD25-1 II? But the Alessandro MS1i is screaming at me ><

    In my many years of HiFi System, I never venture into portable system like recently. I guess HiFi system and 2 years old kid in the house doen't mix well. Although I spend most of my time with system, I always want a set of Grado. Mostly the look and I think I will also enjoy it's sound since I...
