I need only a way to reduce the bass and improve the cleaness.

Crazy mod...see when I look at my driver housing in that many pieces, the thought immediately triggered in my brain is "time to go buy some new 'phones".

battle of the cheap!!

The modded FX33 has a much more pronounced "V" curve, similar to an MDRV6, but no where near as clear/refined. Modded FX33 bass is more sloppy than modded plug bass. Both cans are way too bright (IMHO) with no foam filter.

the modded plug is more accurate / flat across the spectrum, relatively.

Regarding the foam filters, I used foam from a KSC75. I found it to tame the highs, which can be a little harsh without it (IMHO).

My memory is rapidly fading... I think the modded sparkplug was more bassy and less refined. But Its been a long time.

Oh, I was wondering were they the same can but different name. Because they look they same and the specs on Koss's site are the same.

I just looked again, they have slightly different housings, but other than that they look the same physically and on paper.

dang, and i never even got around to putting ety triple-flanges on my plugs. And now i have no idea where those ety flanges went.

maybe i should try a different spin on this and see if i can put cx300-alike tubes on my plugs.

Question - what's with the cyanoacrylates? dissimilarly shaped surfaces call for epoxy resins.

If you cut and trim the parts exact and 90 degrees square, CA works just fine. FYI, yo ucan get CA in various viscosities, to fill in the gaps and irregular surfaces.

As an old RC Modeler, you are very familiar with all the CA's, no doubt.

This guy packages them for everybody, pretty much - just a different label as appropriate - Tower Hobbies, local hobby shops, etc.:

It says the Gel is as thick as toothpaste - I never got around to trying that kind.

Koss's new versions of the plugs seems to look very similar to Kramer's mod. Maybe Koss has tried out the mod and realized that they do sound better with this mod.
See pics here and here.

The KEB24's are not new versions of PLUGs, they are just differnet Koss model. The Sparkplug & Plug have better sensitivity, 112dB, and better THD, 0.3%. And for $100 the KEB79's have lesser sensitivity, 102db, but same THD, 0.3%. Not worth the extra $85 compared to either Plugs @ $15.
