My journey into Photography, Horology, and Audiophilia
This mod will change the general character of the AKG K-240S, which you may, or may not like.
The goal of this modification is to alter the default character of the K-240S.
If you still look for a change in the sound of the K-240S despite applying the mods in Part 1, read on.
The pads and to a little extent, the foams, dictate the over all character of the K-240S sound signature.
Once you change these to a different material, you take away the sonic signature.
I've played with a few materials, and found out that the following suits my listening taste.
Cutting the sponge to a round shape with a hole is done using a sharp cutter. But even then, it's very raw and ragged. Trim it further with kitchen scissors.
Cut a long length from the black stockings, which is used to wrap around the sponge. This I find to give smooth and delicate highs.
Glue the cut anti-static material I mentioned in part 1, and using the glue gel, attached it firmly to one side of the sponge.
It will look like this.
Attach it to the K-240S as seen in the picture.
I did not glue it yet hoping I can soon find a suitable material that will look more decent.
With this mod, I am able to experience improvement in the following areas-
So there, if you have patience and a lot of time, this mod may suit your listening preference.
