M50x Open Back Mod

We here at Antlion Audio decided to make our very own Frankenstein Monster (NOT Frankenstein, he’s the doctor who makes the monster…am I the only one bothered everytime someone says so and so is a Frankenstein?)

cough anyway - yeah we sliced open a spare pair of M50x headphones we had lying around the office to see if we can make an open back pair that works well.

The results won’t win a beauty contest, but don’t look terrible either. It sounds pretty good too. Opens up the sound a bit as you can imagine, but of course, you’re sacrificing the isolation you got from the closed back cups. A fun weekend project for anyone who has a pair that no longer needs it and wants to experiment.

Pretty cool though, all things considered.
