Audio-Related Tweaks

I'm not a big fan of the HD600's stock form with my current setup. So I did some modifications to my setup to revolve around the HD600:
Replaced it with a cheaper/shorter cable from amazon (wider soundstage, less accurate imaging, less controlled upper mid peak, tighter bass response, sharper treble; slight differences)
Replaced the inner foam with panty hose (more treble response, slightly more grainy treble, more ear room; wasn't a big fan of the original foam)
Replaced the Objective O2's [U1, NJM2068D] part with a Muses02; (tighter bass response, airier treble, more laid back mids, controlled 3khz peak.

In stock form the HD600 sounded real with loose bass, accurate imaging, bass roll off, smooth mids and a sparkly treble
After mods the HD600 sounds tighter (sorry can't fix the sub bass extension), wide soundstage, lively (somewhat more artifical mids) and sparkly/detailed treble.

Definitely love the HD600 modded, basically an upgraded Q701 IMO.
