Thank you DanBa for the excellent management of the information in this stream and everybody for the very valuable information!   Thought to contribute a few bits of information and also ask a few questions to which I did not find easily answers using the search, in case someone has experience with those.     Information on a working set-up:   I can confirm that the following setups work in the sense that I can get the sound out through the micro-USB...
Thanks for the update, will wait patiently .
Hello,   any word on the adapter availability for non-iFi-gadget owners/buyers?   From what I have been reading, I am pretty sure there is a lot of demand for a professional solution along the lines you have. The demand comes from mid-to-high-end IEM owners who would like to use their favorite amps having too high gain or channel impedance at low volume or hiss issues with their efficient IEMs.   And I was really surprised that I could not find a commercial impedance...
Hi,   thanks for all the pad and other mod ideas posted in this thread, been fun times trying different configurations on the now three 500s in the family.   These phones really are something special in terms of value for money and for doing mods. Thought to share my findings again. Sorry, a bit of a long post, but hopefully useful for anybody modding or further explorations of mods:   My favorite configuration on the oldest pair with hundreds of hours of use...
  Original idea with HD 25 pads: http://www.head-fi.org/t/533508/new-beyer-dt1350/1155#post_8162414   My experiences with Zoro and JVC HA-S500 pads: http://www.head-fi.org/t/533508/new-beyer-dt1350/2940#post_8918815
  Both.   With the Zoro pads I get a clearly improved seal compared to stock pads (my ears feel the pressure much more if I press on the cups), and that could explain the bass impact increase (for my ear shape). The JVC pads less so but still an improvement.   Need to check out those Beyer alternative pads, they both seem promising. Thank you MrAdrian and plakat for bringing them up!
Hi,   a suggestion to all DT-1350 users who would like to get a bit more bass, esp. mid-bass, impact and/or comfort, in case you wish to experiment with some easy mods.   Inspired by the recent pad mod frenzy in JVC HA-S500 thread, I toyed around with putting various pads on top of the DT-1350 pads (without removing the stock pads, a la the DT 1350 mod with Sennheiser HD25 pads earlier posted).   I got a surprising amount of extra comfort and bass with good...
