Sony MDR-E888 mod

Method 1 by Head-fi's redshifter:
1. take your e888 earbuds and remove the foamies.
2. remove the rubber ring around the earbuds.
3. remove the metal grills off the drivers.
4. if there is a paper filter over the drivers, remove that too.
5. the metal drivers will be exposed. put the foamies back on.
6. enjoy!

you should be hearing lots of bass, no shrillness and all that great e888 detail and midrange.

I prefer this:
1. take your e888 earbuds and remove the foamies.
2. remove the rubber ring around the earbuds.
3. remove the metal grills off the drivers.
4. if there is a paper filter over the drivers, remove that too.
5. I do not want the metal drivers to be exposed to dirt, so i replaced the metal grills.
6. fit the rubber ring back to hold them together.
7. put a pair of modded foamies back on.
8. enjoy!

Effect is almost the same as the first mod.

Mod the foam ear pads:
1. Use a paper hole puncher. (about 6mm diameter)
2. Punch a hole in the center of the foam pads, so you will have 2 holes instead of 1.
3. Slip the foamies onto your earphone like a regular one.
4. The 6mm hole should expose the grill/drivers.
5. Enjoy!

The exposed grill/driver should open up more treble and clarity. The modded foamies will still retain most of the bass. You can use this foamies mod for your other earphones too.
