My ears are now comfortably enclosed in the ear cups, the bass is tighter and the sound stage opened up. An all around improvement to the SQ in my opinion.
I found the earcups tended to squash/compress after a few months and decided to try this mod. - i used 2 core electrical manins cable in the absence of spare speaker wire and this is about the smae width size and worked perfectly - i found them more comfortable and the bass seems less boomy at times so a good result.
Thanks to peterinvan for the tip
