Just be careful of the left driver wire.

I think u didnt SEAL off the hole. Those paper u used are soundlucent tongue.gif

Hey wayne..did u add the thin foam under the drivers..
Just checkg notes on what u are hearing.

Sorry..saw the foam. If u want more bite to the highs..remove the foam.
The leather u hav might be softer than mine..n therefore damed the sound alittle.

That's true, I used party streamer as per Darknet's suggestion, because my original hole sealer stuff was toast. I wonder what material would be the equivalent of the original sealer?

You mean on the underside of the drivers? Yup, that pic I posted above showed it. Man it was tricky getting it onto the left driver though without wire destruction! Glad I didn't have too many cups of coffee beforehand :)

It's crazy... the bass is so much more prominent it FEELS like but when I use the tone generator it SEEMS like it is balanced and FLAT. WHAT IS GOING ON?! WHAT IS THIS BUNNY MAGIC?!

I would sum up the 90's in one word, "clarity."  This may not be an audiophilic description, but I believe this quality is where these phones really shine.  The Pink Floyd reference made by Nimzerz earlier in the thread is one example.  Following the reference in his post I wet back and listened to Animals...remarkable.  I use "Magic Bus" from The Ultimate Who Collection as my benchmark.  Early Who albums are notoriously bad recordings.  I don't know the origins of this recording of Magic Bus but on the Mikros it is...magical.  The percussion, acoustic guitar, bass, and vocals are each in a separate space inside your head.  This clarity manifests itself as incredible spaciousness that I have not heard before.  On other phones I have owned or heard this song sounds congested like everything is crammed into the center.  Now I have heard as it was intended to be heard.  Try it, you'll like it.  Before I was hooked by this thread I had it my mind to upgrade from my P5's to the P7.  Went to Best Buy today with $$$ and my rig, and tested the P7's in the Magnolia section.  Not even a close second to the 90's.  The store guy lurking over my shoulder said he had just got his P7's...best phones he ever heard.  I unplugged my rig, put it back in my pocket, smiled, and said "sorry to hear that."  I'll keep my $$$ to spend another day.

It looks like plastertape used to wrap bandages.

I just taped the foam over the wires..instead of trying to loop it thru the cutouthole.

Did u open the hole? If u didnt dampen the cup..the sound should hv lotsa resonance.

I was going to ask about that... what does that do when i wrap it around the hole? Also should I lay it in the cup too?

post #3405 of 6041
My guess...that thin foam might be able to mimic the leather.
U can put it on the cupbase n giv it a listen. If u wan an even fuller sound..then add tat foam to back of driver.

Try to get the HARD felt..it seem to add impact to the bass.
