So we all know about Beats by Jerry, but what about Beyer by meri?
TL;DR: I more or less copied the shell of the DT990, made some adjustments, and 3D printed. Have not had a sound test yet.
EDIT: Here are the .stl files if anyone wants them,
(disregard the improper aspect ratio, Discourse likes to throw a fit with some images for whatever reason)
So I own(ed) a pair of Beyerdynamic DT990 Pro. They were my first pair of open back headphones and I instantly fell in love with them, problem being they’re ugly as fuck. After a little while the pads wore out (a very little while ) and I decided to branch out to see what else is out there. I ended up picking up a pair of the AKG K712 Pro for quite a good price, and it turns out I like them far more than the Beyers. So the Beyers sat for quite a while unused. I decided to see if I could mod it for a detachable cable, and long story short I kinda sorta buggered that, but didn’t. The next (il)logical step in my mind was why not redo the whole thing? So I did. Five revisions later and I pretty much have a shell that I could 3D print and has a perfect fit for everything.
Slightly out of order guts of the DT990:

Anybody at the Crit.tv office want to do a review after I get it pieced together and get the build log done?
