    @E_Schaaf, I'm actually curious what your modding services look like! A modded TH900 might be the ticket to outdo the HP3 for hip hop. Unfortunately, when I owned them back in the day, I had them on a bad pairing with a ZDSE and wish I had heard them reach their potential with less of the mid suck out.

    @zerodeefex DM me! I won't charge anything until you're happy with the sound :) I tune these at 90db+ with EDM and hip hop with some R&B and pop, they flatter these genres particularly well.

    Edit - it mostly involves opening up driver vents, tweaking baffle vents, possible cup vents, cup damping, swap of pads, and custom die cut foam front rings. It's pretty involved, about a dozen materials, many precise cuts, lots of measurements. They become a lot more tunable as soon as the driver vents are opened. I have a wood worker who can build custom spec cups on a lathe too so it's infinitely configurable. I can hit most fr profiles pretty closely with enough trial and error. Generally no front damping necessary, but if I must, 50% or less front coverage. It's a passion project for me, I just love working on them. Have been tuning them nearly exclusively for about 9 months now. Probably cheaper than you think!

    Edit 2 - there will be a loaner tour with what I hope will be a crowd pleasing tuning. Had a driver failure on the loaner pair (didn't happen during modding, it's just a very old TH900 that was falling apart even when they first got here, SN under 00600) but I had a fresh pair of drivers arrive today. Just have to copy my work, that will ship to @DEATHxMACHINE (owner) this weekend, at which point there will be a tour sign up thread and onward from there!

    Cute. And it might actually be a deal: I haven't heard that particular amp, but some of Headroom's old amps still compare very favorably with modern solid-state amps. If I hadn't switched completely to tube amps, I'd still be listening to my old Maxed-Out Desktop for sure, and maybe to my old Home, too.
