Here is a recent photograph I took of him:

True:  the Auvio is sassy, snappy and great for POP!

 

Really like the Auvio cable with my SPACEYMOD and the KMF amp at work.  Nice full, open sound with the pile driver BASS kept at bay.  

Listening to some Japanese drumming right now--sounds really nice.

 



Yep I know it was clearance and it was already out of stock online when I checked, but at least there was a listing and link to check if it was in stock at local stores. Now the online listing is gone and I can't find it at the store that showed in stock before or check online what other stores might have it in stock. I know auvio is just radio shack's in house brand but was the clearance cable branded and lettered "auvio" on the plug? Because the only 6ft cable at the store I check was branded "radio shack" on the plug, but it was hanging right next to the 3ft auvio cables on the pegs.

Yes.  Branded 'Auvio" on the barrels.  

Yes.  The "Radio Shack" branded cable looks like the spittin' image of the Auvio (and I think they are priced higher).

I want to clock in a few days of constant burn-in so I know that the sound is settled for sure. I haven't been keeping tabs on how much burn-in they've had so far so I reckon around 72 hours should cover it. Then I'll look at mods. I'll start with making holes in the original sticker - might as well try it since I can always peel it away after that but I can't try it if I peel it away first. 

 

A main point of these cans for me is that they have good isolation, so I've got no real interest in an open mod. 

Indeed. I just think that covering completely and then poking holes in makes it easier to eliminate variables when it comes to matching both sides. Then again, it seems that there are obstructions in some peope's holes (snigger) and variables like circuit boards and single-sided entry so maybe trying to make both sides the same is pointless anyway. 

Yes.

You could control three factors: (1) material type, (2) "perforation size" and (3) "perforation density".

Looks like an experimental design coming on!!!

I can do the DOX analysis.

..... :tongue:

 

yeppp have posted some initial impressions on that Pipeline ET-4 cable already READ PATA' READ!!! :deadhorse:

 

But haven't given them in-depth listens cuz still burning them in. 

 

I still prefer the stock cable over all the other cables so far though. :)

It would be nice if my insanity could be confirmed. Hopefully someone, anyone?, will try the below elastoplast fabric material. Seems the perfect balance of bass and clarity/detail retention to me, but I don't have a stock pair to judge against.

Lors: I tried the foam mod (the latest, easiest one) but wasn't sold.  The treble takes a significant hit.  I had to EQ the treble up 7 on the X3 and at that point it sounded unbalanced.  then again, I've never liked darker, laid back headphones.  I like it neutral or bright.  A U shaped sound sig sound good too, but only for short auditions.  The M50 is a fine example.

 

 

That simple mod is for SIMPLE people...not super-sonic dolphins :P  Hey, u heard it on your filipped over pads or the normal pleather side? 

btw, i have added some felt to the lower cup in that simplemod, if u are still opening up the cup, give it a shot..appreciate your feedback.

taking a break...been to a doctor...he is confining me to bed.

 He saw felt in my left eye, foam in my right. 

Stuck out my tongue, he said its LEATHERy.

Heart has an ultralow bass beat, his oscilloscope shows heart is in  "BASSSSS Mode".

Now that Maxxx is back, and the next wave of stickermodders uprising...

i am retiring.. zzz

Normal pleather side.  I'll try it.

Sheesh, just the mention of elastoplast, and you throw yourself into retirement. C'mon people - elastoplast ain't that scary! Ah well, you probably need a break (you certainly deserve one!). Looking forward to your "coming out of retirement" party though!

His last retirement lasted a couple of hours.

 

We'll probably have the party sometime tomorrow...get the hats, noisemakers and confetti ready.

Well, I've been cutting up a hideous leather bag and making mini acoustic panels for the Mikros when I can be bothered to open them. There's still something I find brittle about the upper-mids or lower-treble, but it is a range I'm particularly sensitive to. 

 

So nothing worth telling on that front since I haven't even put them in, but as I cut the ugly bag apart, I found it had this sort of woven paperish material in it that I reckon might be a candidate for a porous material to cover the hole. I've come across this stuff before, but I don't know what it's called. Tears apart very easily. I think the closest thing might be dryer sheets, but we do not use those here so I'm not 100%. The pictures look like it, though, Just thought it might be interesting to others - I'm not doing anything with it as of yet. I hope to poke a wee hole or two into the sticker, put in my little "acoustic panels" and then listen to them like that if it sounds decent. If it doesn't, I'll just take it back to (mostly) stock. Can't be bothered opening up and closing these things to try out all sorts of acoustic treatments. I'll leave that to Lors :).

peel the whole sticker n keep it aside...or dun peel it.

dun poke holes into it, cos u cant UNPOKE the holes...and get back to "stock".
