||After I started reading Head-fi, I actually ported the cups of and did the Grado style 'back of driver' hole opening mod on a pair of Skullcandy Ti's that I had bought before I knew better. Incredibly, it worked. Improved bass response, better clarity and soundstage. Took them from what I would now call about a 1.5/10 to at least a 4/10. Anemic waste of space to functional in about 30 minutes. Still crap compared to everything else I have now, but I only had my AKG K81s at the time, they were hurting my head, I was waiting to receive my Martin Custom-Grado SR125i , and I had just read about 200 pages in the Grado mod threads.
