The first thing I did this morning is place some scotch tape over the 3 vent holes on the driver cups..So the bass comes back in a big way. For the guys that want the comfort of the ATH pleathers and miss the bass of the stock pads this is a great way to bring the bass back. For me I actually like the less bass of the stock ATH pleathers.. I am gonna try it with only 2 vents taped. ect. But this is impressive just how much bass comes back. Give it a try guys it is as easy as cutting out the right shape of tape and slapping it on the vent holes. Easy.
More interesting. I just threw on my ATH velours. The bass is still there..With the tape mod I can use the velours again. Nice. It opens up the overall sound a bit more than the pleathers yet retains the bass end. Nice indeed. For the guys that want ultimate comfort and want that bass. This tape mod does the trick. In fact with this tape mod I actually prefer the velours now.. For the guys that own the ATH velours I hope you all still have them. This tape mod make them perfection. The ever changing HA-S500.
im still awaiting mine but i was wondering how does the tape mod with 3 ports covered compare with the amount of bass on the ath cks77?
im looking for something with a bit less bass then the cks77 but not too little
edit: how much tape did you put over the ports to secure it?
as it seems the tape came off for some
