No. My experience with opening them up is a very thin and harsh sound.
The UE6000 is gunna win in that one. Better comfort, more refined and natural highs. Overall a better sounding headphone imo. But it also costs 3x the price.
JDS Labs' ODAC. At US$149, you can't find anything audibly better at many times the price (or maybe none at all.)
Wait til Ds reports back on the UD100 DAC. It's $45 and suppose to compete with the $250 Dragonfly. I am currently using the Bravo with the Dragonfly and to me they work together very well. If the UD100 comes close on performance, the UD + Bravo combo will cost less than the Dragonfly alone.
The ODAC works well too but I notice a little better synergy with the Dragonfly.
Yep that's the one. I think it's a winner.
So I tried the tape mod with the pleather pads, listened to 1 album (Fountains of Wayne, Sky Full of Holes, currently on my "obsessive repeat play" list), does seem to help make the bass more prominent, a bit more heft, not day and night, but worth doing imo
