I've had multiple requests for latest config on Rastapants. Here's my final (yes, really) configuration:
1) On the outside of the baffle (ear-side):
-Remove the felt over the driver
-Surround the driver with acoustic foam (Akasa Paxmate), all the way under the ear pads.
-Earpads I prefer are O2 and Shure SRH840, in that order (the Shure is the clear choice if cost is any consideration at all, but the O2 pads are the most comfy I've worn). If using the Shure, make a 1/8" tall shim of something to provide a slight angle to the cup and give your ear more clearance. Both the O2 and 840 have a nicely finished grill cloth, so don't worry about losing the felt over the driver.
2) On the inside of the baffle:
-Fill all the voids around the driver except the two tiny vents with Plasticine (modeling clay)
-Remove the white felt
-Replace the white felt with stiff craft felt
3) On the inside of the cup:
-Cover most surfaces with acoustic foam (except the lower vent area)
-Remove the felt on the lower vent
-Cover all the lower vent with electrical tape except about a 2-3mm long space over one row of vent
Finishing touch: use deoxit on the external cable male plug to eliminate the channel dropouts and/or static which seems to affect a large percentage of T50s.
The result is comparable to the best speakers I've designed or heard... Tonally they are very close to my JH16s, though they sound better. There is no part of the spectrum that does not feel balanced and clean. At the end of the day, these end up getting about 3/4 of my phone time.
As with LFF, I consider this an endgame mod for me, and something of an outright end game (I look forward to hearing his next month!). These are so much better than my HD650s it's just stupid. And those were pretty nice cans...
