Really, that's totally the opposite of what I got. Did you remove the whole tape and replace it with Micropore? Then just leave one hole open? I also put on velours. I notice no bloat at all, nice and deep hard hitting bass and the mids/highs didn't change at all.
The soundstage is even a tad wider....Humm!!!!
No, I used a razer blade, cut a line between the holes and uncover one hole at a time. I could live with one hole uncovered but 2 or 3 holes uncovered sounded terrible to me. I eventually cover up 2.5 holes with electric tape and that's it. I didn't like the sound so I didn't feel like wasting time with other mods. I might go back and do those other mods when I'm bored and there's nothing to do, but right now I have no interest in it.
I will do this mod one day.
Dubstep mod (koolkat)
- Remove all the tape covering the 3 holes. Leave them uncovered.
- Spread out blue tack on the insides of the cup or on the back of the driver housing (refer to pics)
By right, leaving the three holes open muddies up the sound due to the massive increase in bass but the blue tack helps to dampens the resonance in the chamber. The result is real heavy bass impact-wise (good for dubstep and similar genres) but it still has that edge in bass guitar. Without the blue tack, guitar sounds really blunt.
It's a reversible mod, so give it a go.
