    thanks brother, the headband is pretty decent quality. Better then I hoped it to be. I had to open the screw hole on the stock yokes from m2.5 to m3. Still need to get black locking nuts for and maybe some black nylon washers. Had to bend the tabs that over hang the yokes a little too for clearance. Not too much work

    Just a heads up for people, for a couple bucks more you can buy a hifiman headband that will do the same thing and it ships quicker.

    Looks awesome. Is the the headband off AliExpress with a pilot pad? Which pads?

    For any one thinking of getting the hifiman headband, removing the screw underneath is hard as f***

    Yea screw that. I'm also not sure I'm comfortable with any headband that isn't using a double suspended style with headphones as heavy as these.

    I think I've got my m1060c set right where I want them, with one question for others that are using these opened back. What kind of material between the driver and grill have people tried?

    I've got dekoni LCD velour pads, a couple dekoni nuggets on the headband and open back with 3d printed grills. The only thing left I'm thinking about is that material behind the driver. Anyone tried anything besides the stock material?

    I swapped mine out with the foam liner from my he4xx box. It’s a 1/4 inch sheet of foam kinda like the little circles are that come behind the driver. I cut them identical to stock felt

    Recently got my RMA back from monoprice on my m1060(dropped and damaged a jack and they replaced no questsions asked, monoprice customer service bad!) and dunno if its just because its fresh but the headband looks the same, but isn't trying to fall over all the time(better assembly?), new stock cable with a straight plug instead of L but still microphonic unlike the 565c cable and sound leakage is way less than my old M1060c(R1, dark stained cups).

    Here's my take on the open back grills mod.

  11. stimuz
    That's pretty neat. 3D printed?
  12. navydragon
    Yes, printed in Wood PLA filament, then stained in light oak, finished with polyurethane coat.

    Will also make some darker stained ones.

    Through my experimentation, I'd say they're not opened enough. There's still too much sound reflection. Completely removing the grills on the other hand is too open if you asked me. Somewhere in between, like the honeycombed grills are best. Just a little bit of reflection is needed. That's my take.

    Thanks for the inputs, but i did this mainly for the looks actually, and it does look sexy. I might design my own patterns though keeping the minimal surface area in mind.

    Finally played with my Monolith THX desktop EQ settings, good god the bass on these things.
