Very comfortable and
very close to your ear!! Perfect!
Far right is original chamois pad.
I used an Exacto knife to start with and
up with a steel burr on a drill press.
You could use a drill motor also and
a drum sander like below.
Like in Method #1, drill small holes in
of element to accept the yoke,
or put a hose clamp on the element and
drill through it to hold the yoke like Mike Tuggle does (I think).
Sectional view of the ear pad (I know
looks terrable!). Cut away on the white dotted line.
Add headband with cords and you have
headphone set up!!!
