post #5566 of 6492

Just want to add that it doesn't matter what other people like. If they enjoy it, that's fine; likewise, someone dislikes something, oh well. Pseudo-science and flaming people who disagree is not okay, though.

Has anyone here played final fantasy vii?

Wow, some poop must have went down after hateful's initial post, because it (and I suspect other posts) are poof gone. Missed all the fun!

Looks like I missed all the fun, too. It wasn't even one of my Hateful posts, so I don't know why it caused poop. I see the posts I initially responded to got removed too, so I hope a Mod just went, "Everything from here to here is deleted," instead of taking issue with my post in particular.

In a nutshell (hopefully this isn't such an inflammatory thing to say that it will get removed again): Relax and enjoy what you enjoy. Let others enjoy what they do.

Open the earcup.

Remove Rabbit Hole cover from bass port.

Put small strip of dynamat immediately above [not covering] bass port.

Put down oval patch of either deerskin or chamois (about 7/8" x 1") with double-sided tape on inside/bottom of cup.

Lay a narrow strip (about 5/8" wide) of open cell foam along the major axis of the bottom of the cup on top of chamois.

Close earcup. The drive assembly should bear down on and secure the foam strip and the bass port will be firing into the center of the chamois/foam configuration.

I used no blu-tak along the inside perimeter[like Lors], but you might want to try a little here and there.

 

As soon as I can get ahold of a decent camera, I will try to post pictures.

Don't understand why your [conciliatory] post was deleted.

Thanks for this! Would love to see some pictures. This was really helpful, I'll be trying it.

 

The way I have it currently modded is, the bass port is open, I've used white tac everywhere and I've placed two felt guard pads and foam pieces kinda like how Lorspeaker placed them. This rounded out the sound quite a bit and opened up the sound as well but the high frequency is messed up. There is a huge amount of jarring/harshness/sibilance to the high frequency(I'm pretty sure this was the case at stock as well). The mikros pair I got had non existent bass at stock, but I'm fine with the bass after the mod. It's the high frequencies that trouble me. I'm going to try a leather piece from Lorspeaker's mod or a piece of deerskin/chamois cloth from yours.

Anyone have any suggestions on IEMs with a similar sound signature to these (+ a bit more bass and lower mids)?

johan, from your foto, i guess u have not peeled open the hole correct? 

( not an issue...just mentioning :P )

 

your felt piece is directly under the "hole"? 

try cutting it down to half or 2/3 the current size,

n moving it further south, away from the center...

give it a listen n see what happens.

Whoops, this was an earlier picture when I was experimenting covering the hole with a piece of dryer sheet but it didn't go so well so I've removed it :).

 

Yes the felt is directly under the hole, I'll cut it and move it down and let you know if I hear a difference!

 

I've been looking for a leather piece I can salvage from around the house but couldn't find one, might buy a chamois cloth. I'll try that as well on the back of the cup.

 

I love modding :D

Duh, forgot about the Mikros 70s. Anyone heard them? How does the sound signature compare to the 90s?
