Looks great, it's like a steampunk version of the DT1350 :-)

Because of this, soundstaging no longer feels tunnel-like but has took on a significant breadth as well.

The next thing anyone would notice is the bass. Midbass bloat has been dramatically reduced from what would otherwise have been a thin cloth to a sheer fabric.  This reduction makes the sub-bass take centerstage and by happy accident, brought on a better sonic spatial presentation in the lower frequencies.  Even with alternative rock or rock genre, the drums sound faster with greater separation.


Mids, save for the more fluid coherence with the top and bottom, remains largely unaltered.

Nice.  Did you do them yourself or did you have someone do it for you?

Someone who possesses more talent than I do did the mods.

Unfortunately, I do not know his handle here in headfi.  We have a small regional audiophile group where he moonlights as a cable guy.  Recently, he's done some good work (subjective) for me.

 

Below, the mannequin heads made of fiber glass, were also done by the same guy.  We call him Arbi.
 

 

 

Here - DT1350 opened back cups.  They sound fantastic.
