However one thing I've always wondered is how it is supposed to sound better. I'm assuming that Grado designs the transducers to sit in an enclosure with a certain amount of length and air flow among other characteristics. So I wonder how these mods would better what should be an already optimized design.

I'm not convinced the HF-1 drivers sit in an optimized design. Personally, strikes me Grado had a great thing with the wooden housed drivers, but then tossed it in a SR225 frame. I like my HF-1 but I keep on wishing it sounded a touch more substantial. Maybe the woody'ing would do that.
