I suggested the 950 is a basshead headphone and the 10R is a bass emphasized headphone to be precise
. This basically means the 950 has a lot more bass and less treble according to what I am hearing.
I haven't tried the 950 outside on the phone yet, if it is a lot better for talking that would great as my wife has complained about the 10RBT.
I tried to mod the 950 but looking at the way the driver is configured when I opened up the cup I am not sure my mod actually does anything because the driver has a plastic cap over the entire driver that does appear to not be removable so putting in the dynamat inside the cup really shouldn't do anything because the plastic cap on the driver should already be blocking the sound from going anywhere else in the cup. But maybe I will try dynamatting the back of the plastic of the driver and see if that does anything...
Overall I think the 950 is way better built than the 10RBT, the buttons are better designed, it feels way more solid, and depending on needs it may be more isolating but at the expense of comfort due to added hear and a bit more pressure.
My challenge with the 950 is the sound. I am opposite to MrXiro in that I prefer the less bass and increased treble of the 10RBT. But I am liking the thicker sound of the 950 a bit. Right now I am burning in the 950 to see if that will help and trying to mod them as already discussed.
I too am hoping Bill will post some pictures of how he is modding these as well. Hopefully he is doing it completely differently than me.Edited by dweaver - 12/3/14 at 11:53am
