How do you remove the headband?

Pull on the earcups and they come out, they are just on metal slidey bits that go into slots in the headband itself. Then with them off you can just slide out the pad piece.

anyone try the M50X semi-open mod? I never use my M50X anymore since I got my Fidelio X2s but was thinking of giving it a go.

https://www.instructables.com/id/Aud...Open-Back-Mod/

Not really worried about destroying them but if it'd make them sound like garbage then I could just skip it and sell them

I mean... If you add the magnets to the original disk so that you can convert them back to closed if you don't like it, you're only out your time, some mesh and a couple magnets.

I picked up a set of Monoprice HR-5 open back headphones on sale that are out for delivery today. I'm curious to see how they stack up against my HD 58X and M50s.

can't find a review a decent review of them but the Modern Retros are awesome for under $30 (if you like bass), maybe they're another cheap hidden gem.

I currently got my HD660S paired with a Audioengine D1 which I already had. Thinking of upgrading to a magni/modi stack. Anyone got experience with HD660S and magni/vali/modi?
