I'm surprised you didn't opt to do the recable yourself.
Hey Hans,   What was the effect of putting the foam on the driver assembly and cups? Mostly, does it do anything to the bass? The markl mod is supposed to reduce some of the bass impact, but with the open mod, there isn't so much bass that you'd want to lose any of it.

There is a huge difference between my laptop's onboard audio, and my desktop onboard. Between my desktop onboard and my X-Fi Titanium HD or Xonar DG it's a smaller difference. The main reason to buy the sound card is for the 3d sound processing capabilities.

The audio files in games are compressed to begin with, and I don't place the same hifi requirements on explosions and gunfire that I do with music.

Can those of you who have experimented with different stages of this mod give me advice on which steps to take and which to avoid for the following criteria in order of importance:   1. Preserve (or slightly enhance) mid-range 2. Preserve or enhance size of soundstage (almost as important as #1) 3. Attenuate/tighten bass   I've read for example, that stuffing the earpads will increase the soundstage, but can reduce the mids, so that might be a no-no. I've also...
