You're not a basshead, then.
Because that is what "they" seem to crave.
You can ameliorate that midbass crush with a (a) strip of open cell foam in the earcup atop a slightly wider strip of chamois directly beneath the Rabbit Hole, (b) no heavy felt at the bottom of the earcup, (c) no Blue-Tak and (d) some Dynamat on the driver housing.
Midbass still comes up, but sans pile-driver slam, and plays more of a supporting role.
But agreed, this mod produces a slightly different balance compared to the stock configuration, specifically targeting the mids and generating a larger soundstage.
