its a deadly mistake all scientists/engineers make....ass sum sion.
This is exactly why you should burn in before doing anything. You said it yourself, too many variables, hard to keep track of what is changing the sound and where and if. How the hell does then inducing even more uncertainties and even more changes and even more variables help you with that?
This is why we burn in first - let's not call it burning in, let's call it acclimation. There is a 200 hour acclimation period on these cans - they shouldn't be modded until you are acclimated to them or they have acclimated to being used or whatever. Call it what you want, simply put if the sound is changing - let it finish changing before you do something else.
Letting the drivers settle in won't change IMBALANCE, smart one. I never said the mod sounded horrible. If there was control on the channel volumes being equal then I probably would've found a sweet spot within a couple hours.
Who was talking about imbalance? Are you now saying that the reason you opened up your cans in the first place was because of left/right imbalance?
? Wtf are you talking about...? The reason I opened it is to hear what everyone was talking about. Just because the drivers aren't fully settled in (which still isn't PROVEN to make them sound better, even if it does) doesn't mean that it won't affect it in the same way. If anything I found what I heard to be very promising if it didn't introduce problems. That's the WHOLE point that you seem to miss.
I modded them AFTER giving up on determining burning-in effects due to the uncertainty of if the sound was actually changing or if my perception of the sound was changing (or if I was getting USED to the sound).
My question was regarding this statement and it was how the hell does increasing the variables that are changing the sound of the headphone help you with your problem of having too many of them.
No need to use the F letter, im just a confused gungan
its hard to resist the hype of getting this can...
then the urge of getting into the HOLE,
then the shock of the imbalance...
accentuated, after breaking the PERMEABLE skin..
the powerlessness of being unable to conquer this molehill..
the sense of helplessness in the community..
n the brilliance of sending it back to ML.
Its been FUN..with a big F.
switching back n forth (many times now, over many songs..betw the stock n openedholemodded can,
i am still of the opinion that there is great exciting SOUND to be had peeling off that sticker.
