Very artistic modification! Dammar is usually used to varnish oil paintings, but artists
usually use turpentine as a solvent (not mineral turpentine). Does that work as well for this
use?

And most importantly, how does it sound right now?

Dammar in turpentine should work too and it smells better.
I have not coated yet but as is now it sounds better then the Sennheiser HD280 pro.
The bass is more clean an clear, the HD280 is a little "one note" boomy there, and the midrange-treble is less coloured and more even. The upper treble seems to be better resolved. All in all less transducer, more music.

200 Ohm is maybe a little high.

But R2, R4 could also be at bit lowered.

I am thinking about 5 Ohm for R2, R4 and 50 Ohm for the trimmer.

It's 200 ohms in parallel with 10 ohms on each side. If you've got a spectrum analyzer (sound card fine) you can adjust to null the harmonics in getting the gain of each side more or less equal.

I do have the "Rabbit Hole" built -- and think I'm going to stop there for the moment!
