    ..and somewhat drier to my ears. (take my impressions with grain of salt since I didn't have them side by side) What electrolytic caps?

    Compared to the KSE1200/1500, I suppose it is a bargain

    Order someone. In fairness, its understandable - time isn't free.

    It still costs something like $2k to commission an SRX plus build though...

    The headphones will hold the charge for a little while even after you turn off the bias.

    Thanks! Now to find a place that actually stocks these things.

    Could someone check whether the SR-404's headband fits on the Lambda Nova Signature? I broke my headband and need a replacement

    Lost old guy could do with some pointers.

    Try getting the HD650 pads replaced too, they're probably worn out by now.

    That is somewhat reminiscent of what I heard from the SR-X, but it could be specific to my ears since the SR-X are very sensitive to placement. I don't have an SR-X anymore to compare them, and my amplification system is out of order anyway...

    I thought the SR-X's highs were rather strange, like there's a strange null. I prefer the SR-5 over the SR-X by a reasonable margin. Its strange that you're describing them as veiled, though. Did you disassemble the drivers themselves? They are using the same drivers as the SR-X.

    Probably resonance in the housing... so yeah, that's what they sound like. You could swap the pads with O2 pads if you have a bunch of those lying around.

    So... how do you guys get balanced drivers when recoating the drivers? I've tried to recoat my SR-5 drivers a few times now, and the balance has been an absolute pain in the ass to get right.

    Wait, how did you crack the drivers open in the first place? Aren't they glued shut?

    So, I've recoated a formerly fubar'ed pair of SR-5 drivers with Staticide 6300, and it seems to have changed the sound of the drivers - in the GP frame (which I extracted an untouched pair of drivers from), it sounds a great deal less bright than the drivers that lived there previously. I've already tried recoating these drivers with lesser antistatic solutions before, and the balance would never come out right. With Staticide however, it just "saturates" after 2-3 coats, and the balance just rights itself... within this data point, anyway.
