So cool !

Is there any dimensions for the grills? My work just got a 3d printer might as well use it for something worth while.

Very nice all!

I got mine in place for some beta testing as well. Was going to sand and re-paint next, but I'm on the fence about keeping the mod. I love the soundstage improvement, but I'm losing 1-2db of bass... and at the end of the day, I love the bass more. So I'm torn. Anyway, here's a pic:

Just removed the stock mesh. Currently no plans to add another grill but will definitely have to be careful and stores these in the original Hifiman box so that dust doesn't accumulate.

Haha! I'm going to try a medium mesh and add a fabric screen next.

 

I over-simplified the last post a bit. The fan screens were thicker than I thought, so the sharp edges also create some ringing that would have to be damped out. Too many variables to deal with after I spent so much time tuning the pads to be just right. Masked detail in the bass guitar was just my primary gripe. I'm sure there is a happy medium out there.

You know, I tested my HE-560 tonight by taking the grills off just to see if I could hear a difference.  I may have, but it was pretty slight.  It could have been placebo.  But for all that, I think I'm going to try the mod anyhow.  If nothing else, some of those mods looks really cool and it's always reversible.

If anyone else has a 400i, I'd like to hear their thoughts on it without the grill to see if they match mine. I won't say how I feel, just to keep it unbiased
