post #721 of 732

Just did the grill mod on my 400s :D

 

 

Ordered from a local guy I know who got a laser cutting (and CNC + 3D Printing) machines.

 

Made out of a piece of thin plastic, somewhat flimsy, but good enough for now

 

Cant use acrylic, too prone to breaking if too thin, can't find any other sheet of metal thin enough yet.

 

So it's plastic wrapped in carbon fiber sticker :D

 

Use the type of cloth for speakers for anti dust - dont know what it's called, lol.

 

Costs less than US$20 

 

Happy enough with the results.

Very very cool!

Just used the basic car grill mesh from Amazon. It's thicker than stock grill so must be cut tight to fit snugly. Plastic trim rings won't fit.

For those that use InspiredLaserDesign grills, how you trim off the four tabs? I've tried a few methods and so far have broken one frown.gif

Fortunately they aren't expensive but I haven't had much luck. I guess I'm not mechanically inclined.

Thanks!

I use a pair of side cutters to trim the majority of the tab off with, then a bench grinder to fine tune the fit to the headphone, balancing the four tabs to be the same size.

Just got around to messing with the he-6's today.

Wow, you guys are great with your tools. I failed multiple times to cut these cleanly. Ah well. Looks great though. Did you put felt over the inside facing the drivers?

No, left it stock.  Might be a good idea to try for reducing reflections.................

 

I'm using the Biohazard design, which has the least amount of surface area (by design) as I wanted the most open without going grill-less.

Anyone with an HE-400i know what size acrylic fan grill to get (Inspired Laser Design)? Is it 80 mm or 92 mm?

The regrilling mod i finally made on my HE 400 with sorbothane duro 70 put  around and near the driver.... After the sorb. mod properly implemented, i must say the grill mod was very audibly efficient to make my he 400 on par with my 2 Stax headphone, very different sound but very holograpgic and realistic... My he 400 is driving by the vintage Sansui AU 7700.... If the regrilling mod. is made without the sorb. mod and without a good amp for the planars, i dont think that it will be extraordinary like mine for the last days were to my ears... Thanks to you all for  this mods suggestion...By the way i cut a pizza oven's made  golden mesh   for it....:atsmile:
