(Having +  v3)    Vs  (Having been +v3)
(Having + v3) is used when it qualifies  doer of the sentence  while (Having been + v3) is used when it qualifies non-doer of the sentence. 
◾Handy Tip – If the clause following the perfect participle is in passive voice,we use having been+v3, otherwise having +v3.
