Next step for you now is to get some pads. There are tons of aftermarket options to choose from nowadays.

Currently I'm using focus pads + some damping that I did to bring up the upper mids a bit, but I should be getting 4 sets of pads in the next few weeks, all sort of oddballs (perforated leather, really deep leather, flannel HM5 hybrids, and weird denon-like focus pads)

oooh, those look interesting, but I'll wait until I've got my headphone measurement rig set up. I've been looking into a lot recently and minidsp just released the EARS

https://www.minidsp.com/products/acoustic-measurement/ears-headphone-jig

It's currently in preorder but if it's good enough, it could be a very useful tool for headphone modding, especially at such at its pricepoint.

Hey guys, I've got a couple roommates moving out of my place (Fort Richmond), so if you know anybody looking please send them my way.

Oh, those look cool. You've heard them, Nathan?
Agreed, they do look cool. I've been thinking about picking up some speakers like that for a while, but haven't pulled the trigger on anything.

I heard them years ago, and used to own one of the successors. Yorkville is a very no nonsense Canadian company who makes good stuff.
Here are some specs: http://yorkville.com/legacy/product/ysm1/
For a hundred bucks I don't think you can go wrong with them assuming they're in good working condition.

on another note, is anyone interested in a meet sometime during December? It's been quite a while since the last one.
