Well, most of the credit is actually due to a long standing head-fi member that has not been around much lately Number9. His post
about the mods that he did on the K340's is really what started it all. I spoke with Larry after I bought a set from another head-fi'er and had them sent to him direct. Larry and I worked out all of the mods and I gave him a good month to work out the best combination. I lived with that pair quite happily for a while when I heard that Larry got a pair of NOS K340's. I managed to tempt him with my old Dynahi and took advantage of the experience that he has gained doing the 'Philodox Mods' since I first asked him to take care of my first pair. He tailored them to what I was looking for and I am quite happy with the result.
When I got my first pair, aerius was quite impressed, so when he managed to secure a pair of his own we 'reverse engineered' what had been done to my set and he performed the mods step by step. This allowed us to get a better idea of what each mod in fact does. This is why I usually forward any specific questions about the mods to his expertise.

Yes, though the gap is closed a bit.
