pretty much if you take the cups apart you look on the back of the plate that the driver is attached to and cover the part surrounding the driver with dynamat

Dude, you cannot imagine with how much expectation I am waiting for the results of this mod. I would like to bring more flatness to these cans so, just to let you know, you have a fan waiting here. As somebody already demanded, pics, please!
also i would like to hear some impressions on the softee mod. i havent seen to much imput besides my own!tongue.gif also the dynamat tape mod is coupled with the softee mod.

The C5 is much more transparent, with the O2 being my definition of transparent, and the M-100 sounds airier with better instrument separation and detail.

 

One thing I've noticed with the E17 and the M100s is that it really tames the highs.  It seems to really muffle the M100s with the EQ on the amp flat.  I can definitely get more sparkle out of the M100s when plugged directly into my iPad or iPod.  So to me, Bass at 0 and Treble at 4 is the way to go with the E17, which just seems weird to me.  If I plug in my Vsonic GR07 BEs, I can listen to the amp flat and get the sparkle I'm looking for.  It's really weird.

you need to listen to your m100s louder than!
they purposly have reduced volume on the highs so you can blast them and not hurt yourself! i can listen to them around 40-45 with no discomfort at all and you get huuuge amounts of bass which dosent really hurt your ears.

you can also put dynamat over the center black plastic ring with the 4 holes(dont cover them) in it to increase sparkle and more coldness/air! i took it off as pictured as it was just a little too sparkly for me

so far that's what I've done to make the mod. Also considering filling the cup with polyfill used for drums but very loosely packed
post #14406 of 21063
any suggestions to making this mod better i will try and give my best impressions.
post #14407 of 21063
also these are the screws to get the driver plate out! It's kind of glued to the driver cup but unsticks with a little bit of force and I used my fingernail to separate them CAREFULLY! As you could tear the cables off the contacts! But not likely as they are well soldered on!

Looking good ! This is on the LP ? Has anyone tried this on the M100 ? I'm not sure I have the guts to kill my warranty and try this on mine ....

post #14410 of 21063
its very easy and reversible. im sure if you were carefull and used the exact screw driver size and left no marks on the screws you could probably keep the warranty intact as long as theres no permanent stuff being done. i did not see any loc tite(tamper evident)markings on the screws. and its that type of squishy glue that dosent dry that seals the driver plate to the cup so it seals back up nicely when you put it back together:D:D
this mod will work the same on the m100. it dampens some of the low frequencys bouncing around the cup and reflects more of the highs. also unintended but increased isolation came as a result, so Ive decided that i like the mod and am going to keep it! and when my m100s get more beat up i will try on them. also am going to lightly stuff the cups with polyfill for drums(basically the insides from a pillow). and than im going to do a dual hardwired entry mod with cryo copper and hybrid silver ltz cable. i think the results could be pretty sweet:beerchug:

and idk about anyone eltse but my Vmoda Lp2s transformed completely after about 1000+hours... i know this sounds crazy but i really think this is the same with the m100. i believe its because of the weight that the drivers have and the diver material is very stiff-how eltse could it make bass like that without the driver flopping around like crazy? this is a theory of mine and could be psychological. but i did notice a difference after about 8months after owning them. i have had them since early 2011 when they came out .

1000+ hours of actual break-in, or 1000+ hours of break-in + user usage (regular usage)?

1000+ hours of pink noise break-in with no actual head-time will likely yield much different results than 1000+ hours of regular use. Brain bias, earpad changes, general wear and tear are all factors to consider.

Somebody mentioned the same about the LP´s. He was talking about a burning in of more than 300-400h, and a huge improvement in detail.

Again, break-in of just the driver (i.e. via pink noise), or regular usage (i.e. earpads reshaping, getting used to the sound, etc.)? You'll likely get different results depending on which method, and the first of the two would be more indicative of actual driver break-in.

Cheers mate. Much appreciated on the photos and the clarification on Dynamat tape.
