Todd, I already have the USB Disruptor and DaBigGenius and will post a review shortly, Deo volente. Am surprised that the HF community has not treated these accessories with any significant amount of "thread length" or "thread depth" yet. Yesterday, I just set up my (modest) desktop system with these products and can say, in short, that they do a fine job: positive improvements are easily and immediately recognizable, as well as substantially musical. . . . more later...
Massdrop Monk Plus RED with expansion pack silicone rings over-fitted with doughnut foamies. Seem to be getting fuller, more robust bass with the REDs. Al Martino sounds very good right now. Amazing, affordable little gems, these Monks.
I miss mine! Has anyone a/b-ed the HE5LE and the HE560? I remember strongly preferring the 5LE to the 500.
The Monk+, IMHO, benefit from a 50-100 hour break-in.
BTW, the Monk+ w/Original Monk red doughnut rings sound superb when amped with the SinglePower MPX3. Outstanding openness, clarity and resolution from these babies. . . . but, alas, certainly not the last word in bass slam/extension . . . 
The Reds definitely introduce "colorations" to the Monk+ sound.Whereas the Darths should sound completely neutral, since black represents the absence of all color(ation)!YMMV!
Haircutt 100, "Love Plus One", with the Monk+. Oh, so fresh, vibrant and open-sounding these $5 wonder-buds!
Just hooked up the Pro-Ject USB Box S+.  Hi-Res Bach organ music. Wow!  The Monk+ sound exceptional. . . . then I strapped on the Martin Logan Mikros 90 . . .  . . . still wearing the MLs . . .  The Mikros 90 still RULE!
The Monk+ have broken in nicely after 50-ish hours or so.  Fuller, airier and less bright sound [thinking back to the very first few hours].  Midrange has gotten very open and clear as well. Really sounding  nice with AQ jitterbug and Dragonfly , FLAC files, straight out of the laptop. : )
I own almost as many Monks as I do Martin Logan Mikros 90s!
