Ok time for update sound mod!!
Warning, this mod will add clarity to the lower mids and bring out the signature audio technica sound with more lucid mids(!)..
And increased soundstage!!
This is also the safest reversible mod!
First we open the unit..
Next, we cut a thin quarter inch slither of cork from a wine bottle cap!!:
Good now put aside and open unit :
Ok now let us look at the area where the metal cup is exposed on inside !:
That is the spot we will be placing the cork,
Wich has the best sound absorbtion properties,
And it fits perfectly in that spot!!:
Now carefully close it all back up!
Remember to place yelow fiberglass back the same way it was!
Edit: Also good idea to route wire away from center hole like in my last mod, if you have not done so already..
Look to last mod for wire placement but the black pad altering should be only done for bassheads as there is plenty of deep subbass with it.
I still recommend splitting the fiberglass in last mod to make fibeglass fatter.
Enjoy your new es700!
Resolution up another notch and now totally superior to any can in its category!
Time to mop the floor with all those other portable cans yet again!
EDIT * * EDIT * * EDIT**::
FULL CORK AND FELT MOD !!
