I just ordered a new material for acoustic modding that I haven't seen used before

    I've speculated about this material ever since I saw the drivers in a DT880, and the HD700/800 uses it in different places...

    Fine steel meshes!

    I have no idea what to expect, but I'm sure it'll be interesting. The idea is that it will impede air flow without absorbing anything. Felt is nice, but it absorbs energy. Steel meshes will act in ways similar to the white screen paper used in headphones, though obviously it won't be as efficient. I'm going to use it when I get back to modding my Fostex planars. I tore the paper off the back of the drivers because I'm a crazy person, and I feel like paper is hard to glue in place properly without it wrinkling and making noise.

    I'll post observations and measurements if I see anything interesting when trying it out :)
