- MYSPHERE 3.x Fabric Cover Removal Guide -
You will need a small Torx T5 screwdriver to remove the clamping plate holding the fabric covers in place. You can find this in most phone repair kits or a precision screwdriver set.

1. Remove the covers from the driver frame. These are magnetically attached, have small guide pins and pull off with a bit of force. A fingernail along the front edge helps getting it started for removal. It's easier to work on if you remove the ear frame from the head bow first but this is not required.

2. Remove the small screws around the inside perimeter of the driver cover. Be sure to use the correct size screwdriver and apply firm steady pressure as to not strip the small screws. Work in a safe area where you will not drop or lose the screws. Once the screws are removed you can detach the clamping plate that allows the 2 fabric covers to fall loose from the driver cover.

3. Remove the inside fabric piece that points towards the driver. I suggest leaving the outer fabric piece pointing towards the ear as it has little effect on the sound and improves comfort and provides an extra layer of protection for the driver.

4. Reassemble the frame by inserting the clamp plate and screws back into place. Be careful not to apply too much pressure to prevent stripping the screws or threads. Make sure the clamp plate is sitting flat and the guide pins are aligned before inserting the driver covers back into the driver frames.

5. Listen to your transformed MYSPHERE. You can decide to revert back at any time.

- Changes in sound with the Fabric cover removed -
I much prefer the sound quality with this simple change. The sound is cleaner and faster sounding with more energy and punch that suits my taste in music better. I listen to a lot of metal/rock/pop/synth type music and the balance is nearly ideal now. I think having two layers of cloth is kind of veiling the great sound of this headphone. It made a big difference for me and I now find the sound more realistic and I get more pleasure from listening. I can angle the drivers out further and still maintain more punch in the bass and get a less laid back upper mid/treble response. Leading edges and texture of electric guitars are much better. Angling the drivers in gives a fuller bodied sound but maintains the timing and clarity in the music.

I would certainly recommend this to anyone that finds the stock setting a bit too reserved in the upper end of the sound spectrum or wants a more energetic presentation to the music. The adjustability of the sound presentation is a great feature of the MYSPHERE and this technique adds another possibility to that equation making for an even more versatile listening experience.

Much praise goes to the main designer of the MYSPHERE Heinz Renner for producing a unique and versatile pair of headphones that takes the concept of a fully open driver design to the next level.
