okay I read the thread, I agree with EQ to an extent.  It's great for subtle tweaks to bring out more things (or remove things) but if you have to heavily EQ a headphone to get the sound signature you're looking for it's probably not the best headphone.  I use most of my EQ to get more bass out of my headphones.  It's incredible how much bass you can get out of a pair of HD600 by running it around 10dB hot in the lower spectrum and maintain the lush mids and highs.  It...
I'll go back and read the comments in a minute and update my post if needed but to answer your question briefly...   NO   I used to live up north where jude lives so I've had the luxury of listening to a good number of the high end headphones.  Audzee, HiFiMan, Stax, Grado, Sennheiser, etc. etc. etc.     There's a sweet spot to all types of hobbies and a law of diminishing returns at some point.  The only two headphones I've heard that I don't own that I felt really...
 I got used to the Grado headphones back in the day but ultimately felt the lack of comfort was a huge compromise.  Those Dekoni are so comfortable and make the headphone look grand with the big pads.  From your listening experience, how did you find the sound changed going from the stock modded pads to the Dekoni pads you shipped them with?   I'll perhaps play with them later (the pads) when I'm more awake but as it stands now these things are EQ'ed to be bass thumpers....
 I watched the video.  The Dekoni pads seem to freely spin around I'm afraid I'm going to break something if I push harder and turn.  I took the stock ones (see photo) and put them next to my ear and with my ear size they're going to rest on my ears and likely be uncomfortable.  My first adventure into better headphones was with the Grado SR-80.  I just have a feeling putting those pads on the TH-900 will have the comfort level of a Grado headphone and that's not saying...
Fostex TH-900 (modded) Denon AH-D7000 (stock) Sennheiser HD600 (HD650 cable otherwise stock)   Audio-GD FUN (oldie but gets the job done)      
I've decided to join the club and purchase a used pair of Fostex TH-900.  They've been modified by the previous owner with the zolkis tweaks.  I believe it's a partial Lawton tune up with some other tweaks from what I've read.  They also have the Dekoni ear pads.     Great sounding headphone!  I made an extensive review of them yesterday against my other "Fostex" the Denon AH-D7000 and my other audio playback devices.  Give it at read....
He did but educate a noob how do you take them off and back on?

Just got my Fostex TH900 (zolkis modded) today off a member on this site.  Figured it'd be a good time to try and compare them to my other headphones and my theater room.  Before I continue I'll just say this, all of these are awesome at their price range at the end of the day you can't go wrong with any of these.     The players:   Headphones: Fostex TH-900 - partial Lawton tune up with new Dekoni pads and some other minor tweaks From what I've been told the modded...
 Yeah I run 10 to 12dB hot on all my headphones down low to wake them up.  You'd never think a Sennheiser HD600 can have bass but it'll match and outgun a stock TH900/D7000 in bass the way I have them set to run without it bleeding into the mids and highs.  Both TH900/D7000 running hot now it's no contest compared to the HD600 in the bass dept.  I run a Seaton Submersive HP+ in my theater room (google it) so I'm used to pressurizing bass and usually find most headphones...
