Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Exposed RABBIT HOLE. But what's still down that there hole? It still looks half obscured. Ain't gonna mess with that..

 

 

 

 

This is the left driver. Tricky bastard because of the shortness of the wire from the board to the driver. Careful does it!

 

 

 

 

This is the right driver. Much easier to work with because there is no board, and the wire is a lot longer.

 

 

 

 

 

The mods definitely move these puppies into bass cannon territory lol! The interesting thing though is that they handle all of that bass well without getting distorted, and the mids and highs are left intact. For the first few songs I listened to, I was basically just kind of speechless by how cool they sound. Never appreciated the bass guitar so much!

 

Too much bass for me? We will see after some extended listening sessions. But now that I am a mod god, it will be no problem getting back in there to experiment further. 

 

Thanks for all of the great photos Lorspeaker! They helped a lot.


^ Mod GOD indeed.

Here's my proof as well

 

 

Same amount used in both cups, super simple. I just recently added a slice of dense foam to the inside front edge of each cup, I'll evaluate the results and post a picture some day

Man, you're not kidding! My brain can't quite parse how these 90's can keep all of that bass and sub-bass together. 

 

Switching over to some of my favourite Porcupine Tree tunes (you can go 1080p on these ones). Wow, sounds friggin' amazing with your ©MikrosHearThruBass mods. What a feakin' great band, freaking great headphones, and freaking great mods!

Thanks for the pics Endcode! So that is dynamat. Cool - looks like aluminum foil! I might be getting some of that myself to try out.

 

Let us know what the foam does for you.

Yeah man, Porcupine Tree are insanely good. The main dude in the band is Steven Wilson. I bow down to his singing, songwriting and guitar playing genius. Here's three more to complete the assimilation (all go to 1080p - whatever the bitrate of that is, I don't know):

Good for you, Wayne...I'm impressed. Actually got a 2nd Mikros in case I get modding, listening now with the Pipeline, after the nice shave PredatorZ did for me on the cable, fits beautifully. daft Punk (hi Rez via HDTracks, sounding niiiiiiiiiice). Can't sleep in these, though, time for the w40s. But, maybe you'll inspire me to play with these (probably do some serious damage)
