I don't see why Audeze would be upset. If anything, the mod gives the customer more options (I'm not taking a gun to anyone's head and forcing them to do the mods) and possibly widens the audience for the LCD3. I get the sense that it's few HF's who are more upset than anything else, i.e. "how dare you violate perfection!"
I don't see how this mod is any different from cables, other than that it's cheap and actually produces measurable results. Contrary to popular belief, I actually tried a few materials before settling on TP. It was the only material that didn't go overboard (I'm simply wanted to achieve something closer to the revision 2) on changes to the tonal balance.
I guess I may have "disturbed the force" because I happened to have used a material that's meant for wiping klingons from one's bunghole. It's interesting that the T50RP modders don't have an issue with the material used. As I've said earlier, maybe the a more appropriate way would have been for me to procure the finest silk and interleave a fine chain-mail mesh made of silver - and charge $495 for it.
