I tested it with Dr.Chesky's Binaural album and Depeche Mode flacs. What I like most is of course bass response..it is more than enough, maybe a bit exaggerated, aggressive. Overall, I am...
I used this sound card for 5 years. It replaced that time my previous card M-Audio Audiophile 2496. As far as I know at present (2014/2015) it is not possible to buy this card as new in Europe....
So I got these real cheap, I thought what the heck for $15 I can't go wrong.....I was wrong. Well they are listenable, I hardly call them a gaming headphone besides the mic built in, explosions...
Well I only had it for a week now and being listening to it about 3-5 hours a day even before I go to bed yes this is how good it is to me. My only other DAP's I have it to compare to are the DX50...

= Hifiman “Fuzzor” Mod = (Driver backwave felt damping modification) - Page 8
Gear mentioned in this thread:
You've avoided covering up the openings with felt which I think is the primary goal. But you also want to eliminate reflections from the metal bars as much as possible by covering that part. Not too easy to do both. I had to do mine three times before I was satisfied (OCD ?? eek). P.S. For cutting I strongly suggest using a utility knife instead of scissors. Cut over a cutting board with the felt held down by a metal ruler. Oh yeah - use 3.5mm for measuring the strips instead of 4mm.
But ... at the end of the day it's the sound that matters ... and this mod is simply incredible in that regard. I would rate this the best mod of all of Jerg's mods for the old crop of Hifiman phones. I am really tempted to land an HE-6 before the old structural construction of Hifiman phones disappears just so I can extract the potential of the fuzzor mod.
In my non-defense, I had an x-acto knife, cutting mat, rulers.... Everything you could want. I'm just all thumbs! You are right though, it's the sound that matters, and this makes a huge, huge improvement.
My hat's off to @jerg, this mod is absolutely amazing!
