I knew you were dangerous :biggrin:. Anyway a good buddy of mine on this thread is visiting India soon and we plan to swap his HE6 and my LCD XC for some listening for some time.

Would you mind listing in order what you suggest the mods to be done should be? I'd appreciate it!

Audeze microsude (vegan) pads

Grill mod

Felt mod

The grill mod is the easiest since you can remove your existing grills and see if you like the sound. If so, proceed with the large mesh grills. If not, put the originals back on and you're done. The felt (fuzzor) mod is a bit more involved but just tedious and not technically difficult.

Perhaps, trying the cotton removal mod first...

That's the mod that even HiFiMAN themselves have suggested, whereby one takes the cotton damping material out of the cup. Returns a more open sound stage.

if you want even more open sound, remove the liner from the stock grill. takes a few seconds and open up the sound quite a bit. after every listening sessions I store my cans in their box so no problemo.

Absolutely...forgot to mention that one. These two things (cotton & disc foam) were the very first things I did, thanks to this thread! :normal_smile :

Thanks for the info on the mods.  I'll be jumping on them....................if I ever get my new replacements from them. 

 

Recall my driver blew so sent them to Delaware.  Well, they are on the way to me but here's the clustermess that happens when you are dealing with one customer service person in China and she/he is coordinating with the US customer service.   I asked Lu how soon I could get the headphones and wanted to know what I could do (pay $) to get them back ASAP.   I even sent them to HFM via UPS 3 day select to shorten the turnaround.  No response to that question but repeated replies that I need to take care of Paypal (which I did immediately) and they would get them out to me soon.  Soon?  So I asked again if they ship on Wednesday (two days ago) I'd like them by the weekend.  THIS weekend.  Wait a day (time delays again dealing with China) and get a 'good news, we shipped your headphones and here's your tracking number' email.  So checked it...............and for a day it was stuck on having them delivered to me yesterday but then last night it showed there was a problem with the pickup at HiFiMan and it cost me a day.   Well, I could live with that day if it still meant I get them on Saturday.  Nope.  They sent them FedEx ground with arrival next Thursday. 

 

I am sure they are nice people, etc, but I repeatedly asked about receiving by today or tomorrow and even left two messages at the CS number in Delaware.  Grizzlybeast got his in two days USPS Priority.............why they chose to ship FedEx ground I have no clue. 

 

I asked myself what I could have done different or better but I'm not sure.  I have not heard of any issues with HiFiMan service on the boards so must just be an isolated incident.  Great.  First the QC issue, now this.  Not a good taste left in the mouth. 

 

Thanks for listening to my whining.
