lol nice

but anyways

i am working on this for us http://www.overclock.net/suggestions...ml#post5853308

i hope this goes through this way we can have a more intimate section then just the "ocnhc" thread to freely discuss high end audio and not worry about being bumped down the pages.

ok, add me a second pair of headphones to put there by my name. I have finished woody-ing my sr-60's. Well mostly finished anyways. I still don't have the pads glued on yet and the wood hasn't been sanded with anything finer than a 60. And they definitely need some dampening. But they sound amazing. The guy who helped me make the cups actually thinks the bass is overpowering.

I do have a question for you guys though. What pads would be a good match for sr-60s? The stock pads are absolutely awful. I'd like something made out of leather rather than foam.

I can't decide on my predicament! I want some Grado's but can't really afford more than SR-60's at the moment, but if I sell my HD555's I might be able to stretch to SR-125's, I just don't wanna lose my much loved Senns!!

HD555 + SR-60's

or

SR-125

I suppose the logical answer is to Audition various Grado sets but I've heard some of the local shops won't let people audition headphones due to Health & Safety

Personally I don't think I'd ever buy used headphones...
Especially with HD555s down to $89.95 on Amazon.

Edit: ATH-AD700s are down to $76.37 on Amazon
