After some tweaks, I can now say... W1000X + L3000 ear pads + purrin's mod is almost perfect.
L3000 pads are supremely comfortable. I don't notice the W1000X on my head at all. Some more padding (stuff tissues underneath) gives a bit more distance and space, so it's even more comfy.
purrin's mod helps clean up the wooden resonance inside. Midrange loses a bit of warmth, but in return, everything is tighter, cleaner, and the background becomes a lot darker. Treble doesn't decay as long anymore, and instead of a residual glare, it's just right... almost orthodynamic-like. High volume still has a piercing feel, but it's much less offensive now.
And soundstage is even more expansive since there is not a lot of resonance now.
I'm inclined to get some felt pads and do some more mods (like Anax's HD800 mods) to further reduce that piercing feel, but right now, the W1000X just sounds sooo good that I can't take them off my head!
DARK BACK GROUND, thank gawd I didn't do that mod. I like the decay in the treble as I LOVE the bright sound
On a sad note I might have to sell mine to pay rent this month >.> gonna try and sell EVERYTHING elese I own first!
