Somebody else suggested searching for Mr.
Black Tape. I did so and got a lot of BS about everything but the subject.

I assume you are referring to black gaffers tape. Yes, that is an option,
but it looks tacky in my opinion. I was hoping to properly fill the
lettering with black to the same quality level that the white is done.

I doubt that I will ever trade up as if I want the electronics, I've got a
pair of F5's for that. My heirs will be the ones worring about the value of
my equipment. Actually they might pass it off as a rare factory variation
available only for papparatzi (sp) :)
