You could go the more scientific way, build 3 versions and the 4th being stock then do a test with a small group of people to see which version they like more and also to weed out the placebo effect (not supposed to talk about AB testing or any non subjective opinions on headfi)


Other then building and trying out the design there really isn't a way to figure out how the finished housing will effect the sound as there is no "right way" of going it. Fully open designs are vary forgiving like mine but with a closed back every little detail matters and can be a bit frustrating to fix all the issues a closed design has. The Orthodynamic roundup thread is probably the most active thread of people building and modding there own headphones and you can learn a lot about proper dampening and some have built woodies, maybe ask them about it.
