Walnut Burl Hifiman HE-500's
These were tricky. Lots of inclusions in this wood, but it's very pretty stuff. This modification doesn't improve the sound...at least I don't think it does. This set will be off to Purrin over at Head-fi to take some measurements before it's send along to the customer. Maybe it does have an affect on the sound, but it's not likely. It's purely aesthetic....awesomely aesthetic.
