Ah I think I mixed up yours/anax mod with some other guys hd800 mod that did something with the mesh. But removal of the dust cover gives greater clarity/transparency at the cost of spatial cues right?
Didn't know that I always thought removing the dust covers increased depth and transparency. If that's true wouldn't yours/anax mod then greatly help spatial cues because it dampens the mesh? Think im gonna visit my local hobby store tomorrow and buy some velvet/craft foam
Currently using the stock cable with removed dust covers. I don't really understand why people find the treble harsh maybe they come from a warm sounding headphone or just listen too loud? In my case my ears don't find the treble offensive until I crank it up really loud.
I don't really understand why many people are complaining about the bass and treble on this headphone.
I find that it ruthlessly reveals your upstream gear for what it really sounds like.
Tho it doesn't help that most music nowadays is mastered for the radio,car, beats etc anything with a smiley curve eq
Btw i've found that with most headphones they sound the best when they sit forward with the back of the earpads touching the ears. There could be more of a profound effect with the HD800 because the earcups are so big.
Just got my HD800 and im wondering has anyone tried running them without the dust covers no other mods done ?
And if so was there better detail retrieval i heard that the covers remove a bit of the micro details.
