Opening a closed headphone.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

This question may or may not have been asked before, but looking through a few dozen pages after I searched it I got nothing on it.

So anyway, I'm wondering how the sound of a closed headphones would (most likely) change when you open it up, as in remove the back of it like a normal closed headphone would be. Anyone have a clue?

Heya,

 

It really depends how the driver is suspended in the housing. But otherwise, a basic rule of thumb, expect a drop in bass response, and expect an increase in sound stage.

 

Very best,

Yeah, that's the most likely outcome. I'm just wondering how it'd effect the higher frequencies; maybe smoother highs and mids due to the lack of reverb a closed can would cause? I probably won't get many answers, so I guess I'll just have to conduct some inexpensive tests and report my findings to answer it for others who may be wondering the same smily_headphones1.gif
