One thing with those infinite possibilities with damping is you need a measuring rig just to compare different variations.

Yeah anyone have one i can borrow? I wouldn't mind knowing how my printed ortho stacks up against the stock t50rp and the mad dog's

Did you check the other thread from BMF , he has generously offered his measuring rig. Check the T50rp mod thread.

That, or a more "convoluted" "measuring rig" consisting of :
  • a set of songs to use as test tracks, that you at which part of the track the singer farted, or where the guitar sounded a bit off-tune, etc.
  • a control headphone and associated gear that you do not, and will not change the characteristics of, and you know intimately how it sounds as a whole chain,
  • a notebook.

Science.

This, more than anything is crucial. Quite possibly the most overlooked if not downright mis understood aspect of modding. Way too many "shotgun" mods out there that just don't stack up when compared back to a reference.

 The problem happens when you try tomcod them at home with no controle headphone and gear, just trying to comparte them by ear, you may get it right or worst, even pass the the sweet spot,, but i must say it's hard to determine what would be a good headphone + gear combination for use as control.

I too have been hyping Isodynamic phones for an awful long time! (Bought my Wharfedales in.....1974!)

Still in regular use.

If I can scan the article of their development I have from that time, I'll post it on here.

Certainly I don't mind the 'weird looks'. I think (who ever owns the rights) should re-issue them!

 

As to damping the inside of cups; don't forget CORK! It's amazing stuff!

(I love Portuguese + Spanish cork forests!)

You mean the same material used on Wine Bottles? that's new for me.

Cork?

Look it up?

Has amazing properties. I believe they even used it on the Space shuttle!

It's a great sound dampener too.

I use corks under hi-fi equipment. MUCH cheaper than the commercial 'isolation' products, and you get to drink the wine as well!

Can even be split as cable anti-vibration ...if you believe such stuff.

 

It is a natural product, harvested from Cork oaks every 9 years. Grown in an area where not much else would (unless seriously irrigated which isn't good in water-depleted Spain) and the Serrano pigs root about for the acorns beneath the trees in Autumn, plus the forests support lots of wild life.
