I just did the incredibly complex "tape over the vents" mod. And what a pleasure it was to easily slide the pads back on using superstylefacto's sublime method. Took a whopping 5 minutes. Now that's my kind of mod! Beautiful.
So, does that mod really inceease the bass? Oh yeah. Wow, what an amazing full, powerful sound. Love it! Can't wait to try out the ath velours once they get here. As dsnuts says... the s500's are the phones that keep on giving :-)
