cut the top of the cup and glue some metal mesh as a cover. Use coton wool or foam to rest the driver in. I think it will be very sensitive to distance from your ears, ie both drivers must be same distance from your ears. If I sound authoritative I'm not, its just what I would do

I just spent 3 hours cutting the cup in half, I plan on using some instamorph to attach the driver to the cup, while leaving the back open.

I basically used two pieces of plastic to hook onto the HD600 drivers.

looks a bit odd, but it should work fine

I plan on painting it all matte black once i'm done.
Hopefully that makes it look better.

Well...I completed both sides. But the distance from ear to driver was around 4cm and this was causing it to sound strange. So i took it apart to cut off a few more cm of materials. Will update when I finish building it again.

Yea, I kinda thought that would be a problem. That side of the driver is designed to be pretty close to the ear. Either way. It's always easier to remove more material than to add it back. Once you get the distance set right, you can start adding damping materials until you get the sound you want. This should work well. I'm interested in the outcome.

I made the headphones by attaching the drivers to earmuffs.
Sawed off the outer halves of the earmuffs and secured them together with thermoplastic.
I placed some acoustic foam inside.
I'm not sure how to describe the sound because i don't have a cable yet, only heard it for a while by borrowing my friend's cable.
