First I followed this video to do the basic mod


Then watched this video to make sure I was understanding the grill removal method correctly


Definitely worth it

I did the foam mod, but what does the grill removal achieve? More sound leakage?

Improves wideness of soundstage and overall airyness is definitely improved.

so I might try this when I get the chance. I'm like a little kid.. I keep switching between the 555's and the AD700's every other day lol.. they sound so different too. I do agree the HD555's sound tighter (idk if that makes sense) than the AD700s.. but I kind of like it. The AD700's are just much louder--it's crazy.. I don't even need to crank the volume at 100%
