I've done mods before... And they usually do work. What does not make any sense is just harass people before even trying the mod, but I suppose you can keep trolling around and making weird assumptions. Your advices would be much more appreciated with a better tone in your posts.

Tone? seriously?  

 

Why would I try a mod that isn't theoretically sound?

 

Like I said, if you want to reduce vibration...dynamat needs to be as close to the driver as possible since well the driver is what is causing the vibration.  You want to stop it as close to the source before it spreads outward.  Assumptions?  These aren't assumptions; its common sense.  

 

Have ya measured your mods before?  then how do you know they work?  Because the OP of the mod said so?  Now if you think I'm trolling I'm not.  I'm letting modders know whats sound modding and whats more than likely a placebo.

Nice, thank you very much for the class of physics. You are a really nice guy. Have a nice evening.

Just wanted to bring this thread back from the dead, as I'm interested in picking up a pair of 1Rs and comparing them to the Senn Momentums. My impressions were that the two, unmodded, had a fairly similar sound signature - both being mid-centric, although the Momentums supposedly have better technical qualities and 1Rs have better soundstage and comfort. After this mod, how does the 1R stack up? From reading impressions I'm afraid that there might be too little bass, especially for portable usage. Any thoughts?

I haven't heard the Momentums, but the 1R's bass massively improves after the mod

A placebo? ROFL. I had to check to see if I'd put the right headphones on because the sound was so different!

 

You have to nerve to say that it's not theoretically sound; scientific theory is best described as the best explanation for empirical evidence, right? Well you haven't even heard them yet, and dismiss every account provided in this thread on the basis of nothing more than your inability to account for the change. That's not a very scientific attitude, you need more to back up your hypothesis that 'I can't understand it'.

Because that's what science is? Trying new stuff and measuring the result?
