Sound is a tricky one, im a total skeptic, I made these for a bit of fun and so they would look cool. However, im convinced they sound better

, bass seems a little better, it seems to have more impact, i wish i had a way of measuring responce before and after.

This is how they started out

Wow! Excellent job on the cups. I wish I had the talent and equipment to do something like this. Now you need to come up with a new rod clamp and cup holder assembly to make them all aluminum.

Thats the plan, and a new headband, maybe some pretty cable. I have a design in mind for the rod clamp, maybe using some nice thumb screws.

Does anyone know where edd9000 could find a beautiful screen to put into those cups? Something chrome like the HF-2's would look beautiful.
