Sup head-fiers, Earlier today, an evil chair decided to maliciously pull the cable straight out of the drivers on my Koss Porta Pros :L So, since the cable is now out, I figured hey, this could be my first chance not only to fix my headphones, but maybe modify a couple components on them as well. What I am looking for in my future modded pair: Hardware: -ear pads - that aren't foam. pleather would be nice. im planning on doing the quarter mod. i was also wondering what other headphone ear pads are compatible with the porta pros. i heard things like the px200 fit well. this true? and are there any others? -headband - if anyone has ideas to make it not pull out your hair. if not, that's okay, this is the least of my concerns. -drivers - im planning on doing the kramer mod. also someone said something about using enamel on the membrane inside? that a good idea? -cable with mic - my old cable was the koss ktc. it had a microphone on it and one of the 3 buttons controlled play music/pause music/answer call/end call. i found this very useful, and would like a cable that improves sound quality, is durable (wont easily tear out of my drivers), and incorporates a mic with the same functions as the ktc. this recable is a tall order, i know. but if anyone can help me do it, i would be very greatful. Also, I know that cables wrapped in cord or fabric suffer from interference due to the cable rubbing onto other things. Maybe there is a way to get the same durability of that type of cable, but without the interference? Sound Quality: I like my beats fast and my bass down low. Hahaha sorry, couldnt resist. I'll admit, I am kind of a basshead, but I don't like to see sound quality go down the drain. For these cans, I want powerfully present bass while still preserving clarity and highs not shrill. I don't want muddy bass so i like to preserve balance. Overall, balance while being slightly bass heavy and preserving clarity. The point being, which mods should I do in order to achieve this and if so, are there any specific pointers you could offer? Music I listen to for reference: Rock - alternative, hard, punk, rap, electro, progressive, grunge, indie, pop Metal - alternative, rap, heavy Electronica - house, techno, dubstep, drum & bass, chip-tune, ambient, dance, hardcore, hard dance, industrial, trance, uk garage Classical - baroque, classical, romantic, modern, contemporary Random groups that blend genres I am a newborn baby when it comes to Do-It-Yourself, so if you could help me with any of these things, i would be very greatful. Also, I am quite new here on head-fi, so if I am doing anything wrong, please correct me.
