I'll try to find a thin material thats about the same thickness as the original grills, so I can use the retaining rings..

That really sucks. How did it break anyways


Just weak metal that eventually gave away. It's so flimsy I can bend it by hand.
 

 
I did eventually fix it myself, though it's not the prettiest thing in the world... http://www.head-fi.org/t/493214/hifiman-he-6-planar-magnetic-headphone/15915#post_11305678

Audeze isn't much better with their driver failures and high variances per headphone. Beyer has rather shoddy driver matching and their response charts are wonky anyways.
 
I think Sennheiser is maybe the most consistent.

I'll give you that. Makes me wonder whats going on sometimes. you going to keep your HE-6 like that or are you going to try and find an easier on the eyes fix?

Working on a fix, but we'll see.
 
Have you had a chance to hear the Oppo headphones? Not nearly as resolving as the Hifimans, not as much bass oomph as the Audezes, but their comfort and build quality is leaps beyond, and they can be driven comfortably from a dap. I think that makes them a serious contender for the "casual audiophile" (then there's the nuts like us...).

  Hey guys, probably already been posted somewhere but I thought this was really cool.

I actually haven't seen that before. Very cool, thanks!
 
If you ever see the amount of work that goes into making a Beyer headphone... well, you'd be less inclined to spend money on their flagship

The Senn HD800 on the other hand do have a pretty nice process to put together.
