Most closed headphones have so much air circulation that those leak alot of sound. Even headphones with best isolation usually have some sort of small bass ports (hm5 and dtt770 for example). Try coverin the holes on hm5 and bass completely disappears. There are of course headphones that are completely sealed but those usually are cramped sounding portable headphones with very limited soundstage. Takstar has no extra holes, still has bass good soundstage and airy sound. Impressive engineering...
We had a lot of fun with an other cheap phone some years ago, removing the baffle will give greater soundstage, I can not remember what more was changed, I will have to dive deep in my arcives to find this, I will find it and post it, but be patient, but it was an open phone and I have not tried it on a closed one..
Could be fun modding either 2050 or pro80..
Which one should we choose ??
I got more than one of both,I do think the Pro80 is the most interesting phone, but the 2050 has some obvious things we could point our aim at and try to cure..
Both has the potential to reach very high levels, I am quite sure we can make these a serious contender..
Maybe we should do it in a different thread ??
Let us do this toogether and have great time and tune our phones to our liking, we can do a lot of very cheap and easy mods, that will rock your world....
