Yes then they need to listen to the soundtrack from Myst Exile (the game Myst 3). Serious bass and so haunting.

If they get a clean bill of health from the doctor, then they need to have a talk with Lorspeaker and he will show them the way of the mod.

 

the bass is NICE on the stock can.....textured n hitting.

 

but if u would just open that 3 screws, and stick some corkchops onto the base of the cups, and under the drivers...(dun stick over the hole)

do the above WITHOUT OPENING or TEARING OPEN the STICKER, just do this simple mod, u will be MORE DELIRIOUS ..:P  U will taste the organic sound on the cattledrums, the gutstring on the guitars..the horsehair on the violins....ok...hyping. hehe

 

something like this....i think u can do a tidier job,

i was just sticking them corkchops over my previous mods..lazy.:P

i had similar experience on the Ntunepads...they are comfy when u put them on, but after awhile, one edge of the pad seems to press on your face/ear

(cos of the design of the traditional cuppypads....the pressure is focused on one edge on the ON EAR sized pad when the cup is tilted )

Were you able to get the Beats pads on the Mikros ear cups by stretch and fit technique?  I bought the same Beats replacement pads but couldn't get them on.

That's what I'm afraid of.

==========
musing....

to be honest, i havent had much use for the alphapads since i gotten them half a year ago.
It didnt get on well with the D7k, or the other cans i hv around then..or i tot so.
Last nite, the alphapads popped off the Mikros, the foamtape i bought suckks..One dollar low quality stuff..
it was just sticky WET...not STICKINGwet. :P

Frustrated n so out of curiosity, i slapped it onto the dt770/600ohm (corkchop inplanted recently)
which was lying invitingly on the sofa..turn on the music...
geez, the sound was like..."projected out/outside of the enclosed can " 

if u have a pair of dusty beyer770 lying around...try it...corkchops n alphapads. 

==========

quick impressions, since we are family here smily_headphones1.gif

received a pair of Creative Auvarna GOLD from my cousin,
comes with bluetooth, and it can run on  wire when the battery runs dry.
supercomfy on the head, memory foam, deep cups, not heavy..v easy to pair with my android n ipad.
human voice on this can is very real-istic, musically the sound reminded me of the KEF500..
that open big easy sound...bass impact adequate, not tightslamming. 
should be good for movies...wait, wait...
listening to MISSION IMPOSSIBLE now..hmmm the bass DO have some impact...at least on this soundtrack smily_headphones1.gif
CrouchingTigerHiddenIguana sounds delicious too.

This is my 2nd experience w noice cancelling bluetooth can, think i prefer this to the UE9000.  

Mate oc, come on I know which side to plug in -.-

Are the screws on these 00 or 000 for size?
post #4808 of 6488
So I got the pipeline cable and sadly it didn't fit the mikros. Now it is on my other favorite can Sony MDR 7520 and I am listening to the soundtrack Myst IV Revelation. I am in audio heaven!

Look to the T50rp Incremental Mods thread for a template of sorts. Pretty easy to do, maybe if I get time. Maybe


^ Sawee gias, been slacking on this thread and haven't been listening to my Logans much of late cuz of my "nickerfied" modded T50RPs. : P

 

But am always lurking and needs to finish documenting this thread tbh, cuz am half way done but has just been too lazy of late. :)

 

So don't worry nick i gots all the mods by peps down and is not just merely linking them all in one massive pile of links....

 

That's the reason why it takes longer to document this thread as well. haha

 

Oh and congrats Aussie dood that you got your set in CRAZY fast!!!

 

WOW USPS 1st class iS indeeD V.I.P SERVICE.  :beyersmile:

Yah that's dodgy as, it's still showing as in-transit.....
Damn boy I got some reading to do
post #4815 of 6488
Hey guys I know I have been absent from this thread for about 36pages lol..
But I like to share some usefull info...

I have been informed by a fellow modder a short time ago,
that "wool" is better than both fiberglass and cotton for sound properties in modding...

So I been looking around and came up with a great idea...
I have been cultivating some fresh white padding material that has very waterproof and insulating properties,
Very organic white "down"...

Take a look, see:


I will be shaving all this "sheeplike" white material off this week(!)

It is ready, due to what I would call, "natural knots" deep in the down material..

It will have excellent absorbtive properties!

So anyone want some, I should have enough material for about a hundred Mikros90..
Just PM me smily_headphones1.gif
