I've been trying reversed bowls lately, but I'm not sure if I'm doing things right.

Here's what I do:



However, the pad doesn't fit very well, since the ridge that holds it in the reversed position is softer than the one in the non-reversed position.

What happens is that the pad does not stay in one position with respect to the driver, since the soft ridge lets it move around a little when you angle the driver to fit your head.

Also, after removing reversed bowls I notice that the soft part is mushed in, and it takes a while for it to go back to the normal shape.

Am I doing something wrong? What are other people's experiences with reversed bowls?

Thanks.

The bowls do get smashed in a bit after prolonged usage as reversed... You don't seem to be doing anything wrong. When I used my bowls reversed, they got smashed in a little but they were never loose on the housing.

Take off the bling bling grills on the black one and I actually like the looks, I think a black grill on both would go a long way in making them look MUCH better. Also, a much smaller connector "arm" would help.

Oh and make them clip ons, street styles are to small for my big head.
