Thanks for mentioning these, and that brief link.
They look very interesting.

I clicked your My Ultimate DIY Orthos link again. Why do I keep doing that :)
The My Ultimate ( first part of the link ) is the best mod i have seen so far I think.

I'm not entirely sure about purchasing these though since I don't have a beard, unruly hair, play guitar while strolling over windswept swaths of grass-covered lonely hilltops, live in an old brick walled urban warehouse or use a wooden picnic table that has a worn out surface.
I wonder if these will "suit my lifestyle" since the pictures say otherwise. :p

I'll just improvise with spray paint to accommodate them to me.

Knowing Beyerdynamic, it is very likely 40mm.

or a dtx501 upgrade?
Extremely unlikely to be in any way related to DTX501, in my opinion, and DTX501 is a rebadged Soundmagic P30, it is indeed made in China, unlike some of Beyer's other products like DT770.

Unlike DT 240 Pro, which is made in...
wait for it...

Ah, yes. China.

At least this one does not appear to be 1:1 copy of another headphone (not that DTX501 and DTX300 were bad, I like them fine after replacing broken headbands with better made headbands harvested from different headphones). Or it is a copy, but a less obvious one and the original has yet to be identified.

You rule, man. I look forward to trying a DT240 out even more, now. (and modding it)

Hmm, but does "studio monitor" really need to mean a mixing-worthy sound? Maybe DT240 could just be used by musicians/singers in a recording studio, while the mixing people use something else? They're most likely going to be in a separate room.

They're very nice with monitoring on the go with a field recorder or a portable studio setup. And easy to drive with low impedance, accurate enough to positioning mics and low end is meaty enough to check low hums and bass noises around. And also I enjoy them on my portable daily setup as matched with a Sansa Clip+.
