Holy cow this thread moves fast at weekends.
I had a big 1k resonance problem when I had the paxmate earside. I know it sounds unlikely, but removing that paxmate seemed to magic the problem away - I can offer no expanation as to why that happened.
And for some reason, Opera on Ubuntu won't let me write below the next quote, so I'll reply to it here. BMF, I wouldn't say that my mods are perfect yet. The sound to me is pretty close to what I had before when I built a pseudo RP2i. The mids are nice and lush and warm, the bass is fast, but it's definitely missing a smidgen right down at the sub-bass region, which probably means mrspeakers is achieving something I'm not yet. Highs are slightly rolled off compared to my other (arguably bright) headphones, but it's quite pleasant. The main thing the foam and cotton combo changed for me was the sense of openness. And once I'd killed that 1k resonance by removing the earside paxmate (nope, still no idea), I became quite pleased with the overall sound. There is still perhaps a slight... confusion to the sound occasionally though - I suspect it might be due to the channel imbalance I have in the upper mids, combined with the roll-off on the highs that I'm not too used to. I don't think I'm the only person on here fighting similar channel balance problems though.
Oh, and the sketch was quickly knocked up in Photoshop (CS2) on a Wacom. Maybe when I actually think I've 'finished' with the T50 mods and get them 'perfect', I'll put some time into drawing up a diagram properly. I suspect that's a long way off yet.

BTW, very cool graphics. What software did you use to make your "drawing?"
