Sennheiser PC350 "Hero Mod"


Recommended Posts

I just thought I'd move this post over here from HWC because I've been looking around for replacements and remembered how important this mod was for anybody with PC350's.

The original Hero Mod post from Head-Fi can be found here.

Now, I didn't really even think of taking pictures until someone (Dalton?) in IRC mentioned it, so this is a little bit in. All my tools and whatnot, I didn't use the Dremel however. I've already removed the ear pads and the screws for the right side at this point. The pads just pop off, but take quite a bit of force.

Close up of the right ear's insides.

Here's what I used to make the holes, pretty simple stuff. Heat the nail up with my butane torch and shove it through. Beats the chance of drilling it and having plastic shards stuck inside the driver. (Nail is post-mod, 2mm in diameter)

First hole done. Went pretty easily through, until the head of the nail burned my thumb through the glove I was wearing.

And here's what I'm guessing is the equivalent of a "Warranty void if removed" sticker. Oh well, just jabbed the screwdriver through it.

And here is where the problem happened. Tried doing the left side and ended up having the nail cool down way quicker than the right side. Yeah, it was stuck pretty damn good. Just torched the part of the nail sticking out and yanked it. Either way it ended up pretty good. I had to go and do it a second time because the bass was noticeably heavier in the right ear. You just have to make sure they're both about the same size and in the same position.

And in the end I now have a headset with a nice punchy bass and clearer lows, instead of sounding like tin cans. Many people did 3+ holes, but the one hole seems to do quite a bit while not making it cause problems (Some people reported the bass lasting too long, for example).

    • Hello everyone, now I am choosing between several laptops, but maybe you can advise me something better my priorities: mostly just for home, for watching movies and YouTube, for some light games (a couple of times a month), and sometimes for work (mostly google drive, various marketing resources, nothing heavy) around 600 USD 15.6" or more Acer, Asus? Order on Amazon? Windows prefarable 256 SSD or more. I will leave links of those notebooks that I am thinking about now https://www.amazon.com/Acer-A515-44-R41B-Hexa-Core-Processor-Graphics/dp/B087N4ZRXV?ref_=Oct_s9_apbd_simh_hd_bw_b2N0e&pf_rd_r=61THRATEMWAKYQZB6J7M&pf_rd_p=121acd9e-769b-5530-ae68-5a92ebd704d6&pf_rd_s=merchandised-search-10&pf_rd_t=BROWSE&pf_rd_i=565108 https://www.amazon.com/Acer-A515-55-56VK-i5-1035G1-Fingerprint-Keyboard/dp/B087RTV311/ref=sr_1_10?dchild=1&qid=1613042065&rnid=13896617011&s=computers-intl-ship&sr=1-10 THANKS!   Cali employee monitoring software

    • Rest assured that no matter if you choose a mainstream Core i5, a high-end Core i7, or the enthusiast Core i9 that you will be getting a very good to excellent processor. All three offer a lot of performance without all that much upfront cost. It just is those who want to get the best, most optimal, option for their needs should put more time, thought, and effort into their decision. So do your homework. Think about what you actually do with your system. Then come to your own conclusions. Not what anyone, including us, tell you what you should be buying. Doing otherwise may result in a rather major disservice to yourself and your next system.   Read the full review below: https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/intel-core-i7-10700k-core-i5-10600k-review/
    • In summary, if you are looking for a good deal, do not need it to be ‘the fastest’ PCIe 3.0 drive going, and do not plan on hammering it with more than 50% of the free capacity at one time, the Silicon Power UD70 2TB is a good option at a great price. Just understand the target demographics it was built for and the compromises required to hit its low asking price before you track one down.   Read the full review below:  https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/silicon-power-ud70-2tb-review/
