Sennheiser HD 238 precision
I have forget when did I buy this on-ear headphone, probably around 2011, I paid for around $90, now at 2013 I rarely use this headphone because I mainly use IEM to help me relax in public commuter.

This headphone is open back, it leaks a lot of sounds, it has quite very smooth high with a tiny bass, because I am very fond of bass then I have decided to mod it to be a closed back, I opened the speaker and stuff some cotton and aluminium foil at the back, my current trial still leak sound from the back which can be heard clearly if I stick my ear to the back of the driver, but I get more bass, it is deeper but for me still not enough for my taste.

This headphone is easy to drive, I use Blackberry 9860 for my main source with flac and high bitrate mp3 the quality is good, it is light weight and the head grip is very pleasant, not strong and definetely does not cause any sweat because its on-ear design, I keep giving this headphone to my daughter for her to listen to movies.

The only thing that I dont like about this headphone is its cable, very thin and keep giving me worry thought about breaking it, I keep telling my self that one of these days I will find a better thicker cable to replace it, now after 2 years I still have not get the chance to replace it.

When I have the time in the future, I will mod it again to really close the back with something and replace the cable.

Sennheiser HD 238 precision, open the foam

The foam can be taken out very easily, just grab it and pull it and it will break open very easy, there are 8 latches to hold a clear plastic under the foam.

During normal use it wont be taken out easily by accident, at least during my whole experience in 2 years I have never experience the foam got break out by mistake.

Sennheiser HD 238 precision, the driver
Reply #2
The driver of Sennheiser HD 238 is very beautiful compare to my other headphone, mainly the Sony MA-100 which has a very large bump on its back of the driver.

I dont know the actual size of the driver diameter, but it is quite small, it looks big because it is surrounded by the plastic housing which also hold the solder joints.

The white cotton is not originally there, it is my attempt to convert this open-back to close-back just to get more bass out of it.
