    I live in camada too and I'm interested in these phones,where did you buy yours and did you have to pay extra on top of the price and shipping? Ie customs fee and what not.

    Thanks :)

    x 3... as I'm only in San Diego it should be the next day customs releases it, would be cool if that ended up being tomorrow.

    Anyone here thinking of doing a transplant of these drivers into a different headphone?

    Ebay.
    The item itself (i.e. excluding shipping) is not over 100$ so there should be no custom fees. Or at least I never had to pay extra duties when shipments are done with EMS. I'm sure Google will tell you about UPS and the likes though.

    Are these really that good? How would they compare to the PX 200 II or Porta pros?

    Yes. Please see my posts for detail. According to pictures and descriptions of cyloh it should not be a piece of cake - the driver is glued to the mounting plate. The safest way to do it would be to saw off the most of the circumference (plate) around the driver and then glue it to the similarly prepared plate from the intended transplant headphone cup. Precision modelling skills required, not something average head-fier is supposed to posess. This is not a beginner's project.
     
    One could certainly try to use a sharp thin knife ( preferably exacto blade # 11 ) and steady firm hands to separate the driver from the plate. Since this is something definitely supposed not to be done by the end user, it could or not be actually possible. If there is any leak/spillover of the glue around the edge beetween the driver and the plate bridging to the diaphragm material itself, there is a fair chance of destroying the diaphragm. Use common sense.
     
    Needles to say, any of the above voids the warranty.

    I have transferred the S500 driver into the Creative Aurvana Live! headphone body.
     
    It was a crude job, taking the foster drivers out of the CAL! was very easy. The S500 was horrible though. They really glued it down tight.
     
    2 hours later with blood shed, success.
