I was wandering around Home Depot today and found this...
Corner Shelf $7.47

So I thought to myself... headphone hanger! After cutting and drilling for a little while, I came up with this. It was actually planned for a shelf in my room that matches the "honey" color, but I thought it turned out so well I wanted to put it on my PC desk. I will make another one that is a darker color to match my desk.

Using a variation of the Faust Mod I transformed $67 Fostex T40RPs into world class phones. These orthodynamics are simply amazing.

Neutrino's got a pair of modified T50's that I've listened to. Really like power, those things, my minimax goes further down the dial with those than anything else I've used before.

Can't get over the weird mid-range hump on them though. I mean, a cappella vocals and rhythm acoustic sounds great in ways I can't explain (blues anyone?), but every other genre just sounds off to me.

anyway, from my post in the speaker thread:

I got bored this summer and ventured into first-time speaker DIY with a completely unnecessary 2.1 upgrade. For a first-time project, it turned out fairly well.

Disclaimer:
yes, they probably weren't meant for nearfield. But according to this post by the guy who designed them, they seem to fare well. And I can't complain smile.gif

L/Rs - Sealed Tritrix
Sub - Dayton DCS205-4, custom box

DSCN6121_resized.jpg
Notice the clear-coat smear on the case on the left? I didn't know it was there til I saw this photo... headscratch.gif
Also, need to redo the faux-wood vinyl laminate on the left speaker

DSCN6124_resized.jpg
DSCN6125_resized.jpg
Couldn't find a pre-made sub that would fit down there. So I made one.
Also, disregard my knee doh.gif

So, now the problem is that I found out doing this is fun. between my headphones and now this, my wallet sees nothing but dark days ahead wink.gif

you can also see my newer relay-based selector switch just under the monitor.

I had to fabricate new ones from a mixture of heatshrink, glue and zipties of various forms. Beyerdynamic also does something special...their main cable entry relief is rectangular. Hmmm....I had to find a way to compromise. Since my cables are round, I'd need to enlarge the hole (by drilling/reaming it out) so it'll fit my cable. But that'll still leave a large chunk of the rectangular cutout visible, so I had to take it a step further, and I believe this is the best compromise. Sucks, but hey, what can you do. rolleyes.gif

I'm guessing braided nylon. I've used it once before (like a 2ft segment) and it's great stuff if it's gonna be visible.

edit
I dunno about all the nifty properties people read about it. I only used it to spruce up a visible serial interface cable for a client haha

Nice I'm building some speakers myself:
http://www.overclock.net/home-audio/1115064-project-low-budget-2-way-standing.html

That seems to be a simple set of filters. What order are they? Care to share the schematic tongue.gif

This reply has nothing to do with your speakers.

Your mouse pad is awesome. I've always had a problem positioning my mouse pad to my liking while gaming. That mouse pad would solve my problem. Where would one find such a mouse pad and how much would it cost?
