    The second paragraph talks about replacing the pads, headband padding and tubes. Presumably this is not all a hygiene issue.

    I tried to make it clear that I am speculating about Sennheiser's use of mechanical damping in these phones. However, I am not speculating about mechanical damping in regard to the 800 series, they have been explicit for many years that they do that, so they obviously know what the problem is. Given that there is a considerable amount of activity on mechanical damping by other other headphone and speaker manufacturers and most importantly for me what I personally know about how damping improves sound it would seem odd for them to ignore that issue in their TOL.

    I also remember reading that these phones have amplification in the earcups. If that is so, Sennheiser could potentially use those amps to generate signals to cancel vibrations in the earcups. That would be fascinating. Recall that Senn has a number of noise cancelling headphones which operate in a related fashion.

    I have experimented with many phones, a number of speakers, even transistor radios and the problem of stored mechanical energy seems to be universal. I would say that when you use spikes on your speakers you are trying to get rid of this energy. Grado uses a proprietary plastic to achieve the same goal, so it is not just about sorbothane.

    Is that with or without your head there?

    A post with no mention of sorbathane? Well that is progress.

    (Seriously, if you are going to post the same exact post over and over in multiple topics over the course of several years, you deserve a little light ribbing.)

    Because edstrelow fits the definition of a fanatic: He won't change his mind, and he won't change the subject. :deadhorse:
