    Audio-Related Tweaks:
    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.
    Music Preferences:
    Jazz, funk, punk, blues, classic rock, and instrumental/electronic beats of many kinds.

    Favorite bands or performers at the moment: The Bad Plus, Stanton Moore (and his Trio), Madlib (his Jazz stuff), Garage a Trois, Grant Green, Jimmy Smith, Flying Lotus, Bonobo, Shigeto, Mux Mull, Tyco, Little People, Radiohead, The Clash, Gorillaz, RJD2, MMW, EST, Blockhead, Galactic, Miles Davis, Pink Floyd, Black Flag, Fugazi, The Evens........
    I'm that guy that did that thing that time. Not that one, the other one. Yeah him.
