    ΞEMU custom open back ear-cups.
    I can put on woodies for more closed back, wood punch.
    These... are for the open back experience.
    Took some time to realize, design and finally having making em...

    These cans have now been modified to as much of an extent as possible.
    Removable cables. Multiple drivers (still a secret recipe there). Open back cups. Swapped pads.
    Even a strap-on headband.
    I don't think I've left anything out lol.

    PS: Ignore the pads - don't have the better ones with me right now. Stock is stock - sounds best.

    CREDITS: I have to credit @daanh for his help, the foundation (the 3D cup CAD design) without which, this would not have been possible.

    PS: Hope I didn't trigger anyone's trypophobia - definitely not my intention.

    Looks cool. Do you have measurements or impressions of how it sounds? Or details on what's going on inside?

    Ok, I don't have trypophobia... but the grill beneath the cups makes it looks like your eyes have eyes and it's wigging me out a little bit :confused:

    Haha need to put in a different 'mesh' in there then I guess... will do. Yeah i know, i'm getting 'it's bit creepy' feedback on this...

    Well I don't have a way to measure them per se - I haven't done any before.
    Personally, it sounds a bit more airy and open - of course they don't still go as open as one would expect - you would know, the design is as such that there's no breathing elements in the baffle as such to make them more open.

    Still, they sound 70-80% of the no-cups-at-all sound, and a bit natural. The somewhat fatigue in the highs is much lowered (at higher volumes), the mids have become a bit flatter - I think overall from a V to a much less V.

    It sounds good - wood would kinda fatigue me - this semi-open doesn't as much. Just a different flavor I guess, from wooden backs.
