    Just a thread to gauge interest in a tour of a pair of modded $30 headphones. I sent them to takato14 and he did a few simple mods, and they ended up being the most ridiculous value proposition I've ever experienced. Almost HD800 tier resolve, just let down by dirtier treble and mids, but with better midrange tonality and more slam down low.

    Here's a measurement from Takato14's flat plate along with an HD800 SDR and HD600 for reference.

    Curious how these were modded. I'm pretty happy with the cans I have at the moment but a $30+ project seems like a great way to kill time when I've got time to kill, especially if they really do kick the Senns in the gimbals. Loaner would be cool, but I'm a bit far afield, haha.

    This is how they measured stock.

    Mods were as simple as covering the rear magnet ports, damping them with twaron angel hair, and slapping on HM5 velours.

    Been lurking for a while and just randomly clicked on this thread. Obviously just echoing the general population when I say it looks too good to be true but would like to see what other people will say about it if they have the chance.

    Are these the same as those Somic open backs?

    According to specs it is same as Somic V2. Somic MH463 looks the same but has larger drivers.
