Ugh.. no thanks. So there isn't a mod to change the sound then? Oh well.

I don't mind the sound leaks. This is one of the reason to get it LOL

I'll see what other mods can be done though

i just take out my earpads from the ad900 for cleaning, i found there is a lot of dust sticking on membrane of the driver. advice me the best way to clean the dust on the membrane without damaging it.
BTW, there is the metallic grill with holes protecting the membrane.
which way is the best to clean it:
1. use a very soft painting brush
2. use air blower that use to clean camera lens
thanks in advance

So true

Upgrade to what? I need something to at least dampen the sibilance to at least tolerable level like the T50RP...
You have experience with customs bro? Need help because I'm going to get a DIY AMP/DAC from a friend in HK. I wanna be prepared with the amount of money and also negotiation LOL

i deal with customs a lot. basic guideline is prepare between 10-20% additional of the shipping value + shipping fee combined smile.gif

the pads are exchangeable.. it can really make a difference...

for those who think the purple thing is ugly can repaint yourself... there's lots of DIY which u can "google" although for me the purple is just nice for me...

the DIY repaint is not as easy as you think though haha

granted, i'm on an ad900 and it is a bit easier than the ad700 smile.gif (i've opened up my can before due to polish product spill into the grill/foam rclxub.gif )

best if you auditioned them first.

i cant comment on 1/2 because never auditioned the pro500mk2 myself, and supposedly the m50s limited edition sounds different than standard m50

3 on the other hand, have really damn strong bass and to some, may be a bit overbearing.

best to use 1, however no matter which method you take, treat it with extra auction

problem with 2 is that you may accidentally apply too much air pressure and damage the membrane, where as 1 it should be some what safer.
however for dirt/dust that can't be reached using a soft brush, you may attempt to use the blower to blower indirectly (like from the side) instead of directly towards the driver membrane

rm500 and above = straight 10%. rm1k above = proper assessment and that time they will bring out your item category and tax accordingly

oh and throw away your kaspersky.

if shit happens to your package and you under declare, insurance will only compensate based on what you declare

if you got caught on under declare/wrong declaration by customs (eg: its a bomb and you declare it being a toy), you may be charged for criminal offense that is a few k in fine, jail term, or both smile.gif

but yea sure you can declare whatever you want so long the seller is willing to do it smile.gif

Aww crap...so my stuff is going to cost about $200. Then I have to ready another $20 for customs...sigh...

Also, I heard that depending the type of item, you will get extra charge. One example is that computer parts are excluded.
So I'm bringging in a DAC & AMP combo, how do I not make it be charged more than he 10% mentioned before?

aside from tax exempt/free, 10% is the lowest rate. and you're not getting any lower via legal means smile.gif

@sheenho, I went to Jaben yesterday and tested out the Pro700Mk2, it did not sounded that good. I felt the M50 was way better.

But again its weird to carry the M50 to public right? Feel so awkward. Haha tongue.gif

At last I bought Beats Mixr which sounded way better than both of those and also it suited my need. Each person has their own personal hearing I guess. So yeah nod.gif
