well not "less bass" but as you said a tighter bass. At first I thought it was "less" since there was less decay but every now and then It drops pretty damn hard [It stills takes shocks me] 

 

but I would call a tighter bass line "less" in terms of quanity over a bass with more decay. But there's nothing wrong with my mod. It did exactly what I wanted it to do, tightened the entire sound signiture, toned down the bass [which I though was over bearing in stock] and added more details

 

and as I said the best part is, that when there is a need for a LOT of bass, it puts outs! So less in terms of less decay, which for some ppl the excessive Decay, is what the enjoy about bass

What exactly is ruined?

Seriously, if you're chasing after more bass I would start playing with EQ'ing. The w1000x drivers will handle extreme bass response. Just a thought...

and yea. I don't recommend ever modding for MORE bass on a bassy can. As eq works wonders!

when a song has high pitch, something like drum cymbal or vocals(sorry im not audiophile) it creates noise(harshness), its like if you buy a cheap phone and turn it volume up to very very high it creates that kind of harshness, not clean and smooth like it used to be at all,

 

bass is spot on tho, its just the noise

 

I'm guessing that because i broke the rubber ring and also the yellow foam loosens between its layers due to excessive dynanamt on the driver housing which creates collision with the foam, its just my guess, here is what was going on:

 

when I put right ear wooden cup back after mod I notice it was difficult to fit in, I used force to fit it anyway then I found I can't even secure one of the screws where i realize something is not right, it turned out the yellow foam loosens its layers(I thought its a one piece foam instead of bunch thin layers sandwiched together which is what it really is), now the yellow foam has small gaps between its layers, at least its not intact any more

 

anyway im not a technician I can't say for sure whats causing the noise, my guess is maybe something is vibrating inside, or maybe the rubber ring is not working which creates leakage

yea forcing is never a good idea... I did mention 1cm sqaures right? and about 1mm in thickness correct? With mods ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS. less is more. If you did not add enough you can add more, if you add to much... well you know what happens then sadly

No problem. I chipped a cup on one of my pairs (sold them) when testing my mods vs. unmodded. He had a cup at my house in two days.
