Don't have the money for one more pair of cans. There are more pros than cons.

Pros: a lot more of sub bass and impact, lows have just much more volume, you can easily hear distortion in lower extension iff exists with purpous in track, sounds warmer in some cases, no more shrilled highs, sounds even more like speakers now!

Cons: Little smaller soundstage.

I can say a complitley new cans.. Brilliant. No boring and bright sound anymore. On image as you can see there is no interference in mid tones. Someone says it has the bass almost as DT990 but without sharp highs.

EDIT: I missmatched one other mod with cutting foam inside cups. There is no shouty mids, boomy bass or lesser soundstage. Everything is fine with this mod.

Cheers.
