dumping the back of the drivers with dynamat? how much do you put? cuz i noticed that if you put it too thin it has little or no effect on it...
Hey everyone, this is my first post here. Great thread, lots of very good information here.
I recently bought a pair of SR-80i brand new and decided to do some of the mods in this thread.
- Removed the button and plastic grill and replaced it with a black metalic mesh
- Removed the white silk like lining
- Punched all 10 holes in the back of the driver
- Quarter modded the s-cushion pads
- Removed the vinyl headband and replaced it with a brown JMoney lambskin headband.
I have a question though... this thread mentions damping the interior of the enclosure and the driver with some felt to attenuate the HFs but I haven't really had the need to do that, is that normal? The headphones definitely have more refined bass, a bigger kick but the highs and mids are still as sharp as they were before the mods... Maybe I did something wrong? Any ideas?
I'm mostly listen to FLAC files on my Sansa Clip+ and music just sounds amazing...
The end result is this...
I found the highs to be sharp, so I damped the interior with dynamat (similar to felt) and it helps get rid of the plastic sound that the grados have. It doesn't get rid of it, but it makes it less blaring.
