Shouldn't it have been manufactured to sound like the modded version instead of released sounding like tin cans?
The lack of bass in the PC350's was an intentional design choice and they only sound like tin cans when you aren't giving them enough power. The Asus Xonar DG/DGX will be adequate for powering PC350's and they come pretty darn cheap.

Honestly, if you intend to buy a pair of PC350's and "hero mod" them you're better off buying HD555's or HD595's in the first place.

The question is what do you want from your headphones, not whether or not you should buy PC350's. (open/closed, sound signature, soundstage/imaging, etc)
