Hi. I've received a reply from Grado, so far.

You heard from Sennheiser, Mike, but we shall see about Koss and AT...
1. How about Sony?
2. Grado's materials must be very different from Sennheiser's
3. Why didn't we do this from the first?

Sorry, forgot about Sony. I'll write them as well.
Why didn't we do it? Because we were too busy fighting off an answer every 5 minutes

It's more fun to debate.

the package is just the hd280s, they should be here in a few hours.

Well, I contacted Sony. The website was a Sony Style one, though. [Shudder]

And SageOHaze, I recommend you listen to a CD or two when you get them. Then, pop the in a drawer with music playing for about 48-72 hours. Change the music style every 6-12 hours. Preferably all of it should have some bass kick. Then, listen, and be overwhelmed... Uh-oh, are we gonna start over again?

Apart from that and against all rationality (I can't really take the common physical scenarios in this regard seriously) I believed to detect a small difference in favor of the (black-)marked CD edges (sharper contour, less glare). If they are real, they are tiny, though, and not worth the continuous modification IMO, so I renounce it now.

Huh? I don't undertsand your post. I tried three different CD modifications:

1. Special green marker
2. Green mat
3. Another surface treatment

#1. Produced a noticeable improvement. Not huge, but distinct.
#2. Produced a similar, but slightly less intense improvement.
#3. Produced no audible change.


I must conclude therefore that the effects of #1 and #2 were genuine, as they were repeatable. Repeating #3 produced no effects of any kind that I could detect.

Well, I tried all of these many times, and I stand by my assertions. The CD player was Sony 507ESD. I have now acquired a 508ESD that has a different system. I have not repeated those tests.

Mike, please note: I wasn't pretending it isn't true! I even believed to detect some impact and have prepared one hundred or so of my CDs that way. Now I'm four years older, suffer from a slight tinnitus and have more or less retired from ultra-critical listening. In this situation my ears are less trained than years ago, so the difference I perceive with normal music listening is not that clear that I can be sure about it. Maybe if I would begin with critical listening again... (with slightly reduced hearing ability).
