Fortunately, a bit of modding can transform these things into everything they can possibly be.
Firstly, the earpads are not that comfortable. Theyre shallow enough so that people with larger dumbo ears like myself find it very uncomfortable to extended listening because the inner cup is pressing against your ear. BUY THE SHURE HPAEC840 PADS!!! Talk about comfort... roll up some tissue and shove it under the pad to increase comfort, sound staging, and a tad bit of bass due to a better seal around the ear.
Second, grab some crayola modeling clay. Take off the pads (if youre keeping the stock pads, be careful because theyre taped on with double sided tape. the tape is strong enough to rip the pleather) and pack the clay flush with the cavities on the back side of the driver baffle. One hole is a bass port that is open to the ear side of the baffle, dont fill that one. TALK ABOUT DETAIL. The baffle is no longer flexing due to the driver and everything is much more detailed. Extended bass, detailed mids, and clear highs. Cheap, easy, makes a real difference.
Third, shove 3-4 torn up cotton balls in the cups. Reflecting soundwaves from certain frequencies is eliminated even further. Helps a lot with female vocals - they become much much more clear and balanced.
Fourth, pick up some fatmat/dynamat/damplifier pro, etc. and coat the inside of the cup with it. TALK ABOUT ACCURACY.
4 stars for out of the box performance for the price
5 stars for modded performance. They compete with $700-$800 cans when modded right.
Alrighty, here's what you'll need:
Dynamat 10415 10" x 10" x 0.067" Thick Self-Adhesive Sound Deadener with Xtreme Speaker Kit - Pair
SilverStone 21-Inch x 15-Inch 4mm Thick 2-Piece Sound Dampening Acoustic EP0M Silent Foam SF01 (Black)
Chenille Kraft Modeling Clay Assortment
COTTON BALLS - Used to go between the ear-cup and back of the driver when the sides are screwed back together. Try to experiment with how much you use, it's always helps the sound but using more = smoother mid-bass hump, less = more mid-bass hump.

I've used and auditioned many pairs of cans over the years and have always come back to the Fostex T20RP mkII (and the original T20RP before these). There's a great reason these are one of the most commonly used pairs of headphones you'll find in almost any commercial recording studio. I've simply never found another set at any price that I liked more than these. I've even compared them to headphones costing $500 and up and saw no reason to pay that kind of money when these incredible cans can be had for this ridiculous price.
Some people may find them a bit on the warm side, but personally I find most headphones, including the very popular AKG k240 (which I also own), to be a bit too bright, edgy, and fatiguing for me. I've tweaked mixes on these then listened on my reference monitors and found them to be quite accurate. And, I've never managed to get them to distort at any volume. Though I don't usually listen loud unless I have to in a live mixing situation, these are always ready when I need to.
They are not perfect so I'll list the cons. First, they're big, as you can see in the picture, so don't buy them if you're looking for something you can stuff in a pocket.Read more ›
