Hmm. Not exactly what I was expecting based on the title.

Pretty interesting, not something I would do, but I can appreciate the craftsmanship & effort.

Seems like busted phones off of e-bay like the guy said would be the way to go.

Nice mod but I donít believe that cement offers good sound damping or sound resonance like wood does. Plus I find it strange that he didnít use any insulation inside as most headphones have for damping, even the all wood ones which is the way I would have opted VS cement.

The cement will cause an echo effect (IMO),...

I'm going to try that using leftovers from lunch instead of concrete. I'm looking for an organic sound.
