I think I could fab a working model, Ill do some drawings and figure it out. Need to re read the mod threads to see what you guys are using to adjust the hole. I did remove and re-soldered in the connector side speaker wires(they are very fragile),If anyone breaks the wire PM me and I can help.
Yeah I was having similar opinions with the amount of bass. I think bass is affected by how obstructed the hole is because more airflow will allow the driver to move more freely... not an expert in these matters but I think that has some effect. Try using different materials to cover the hole.
In my post above I mentioned that I used 2 layers of party streamer lol. I tried one layer which was a bit too bassy, foam was way too bassy (lesser than original but still tons), and tape made it anemic in bass. I think a cotton pad was the closest to stock I found since I kind of destroyed the original paper haha. Its great being able to tune these things by experimenting with different materials.
I also used cotton pads on the back of the cup which, expectedly, tamed the treble though I wasn't happy with the lack of sparkle... made things kind of dull so yeah.
For the resoldering did you just desolder the original wire from the pcb and match them with the contacts on the other side? oh and stringing the wire through the headband wasn't too difficult was it? I'm guessing there's a hollow tube or something.
Edit: Oh and wayne, the wires aren't that fragile (as long as you're decently careful). I've opened and closed them a ton of times and I'm still using the original wires since they've stayed intact. In other words: do it
