post #22216 of 23454

Not bad. And, like I mentioned earlier, a pair of HOK went for 2.5 euros a few months ago, too. In fact, at least a couple months ago, it seemed ortho prices were going down in general - so I'm not sure what people were moaning about with prices.

Where are they, though? This thread's been near dead for a while, anyway.

It is fairly slow that's for sure. Guess i need to do up something soon and post. Got a few ideas and unfinished projects yet to figure out.

Talking about old orthos, my YH-1 pads are less than stellar, and was always wondering what could make a good replacement for it. Any recommendations? Tried the HF search function, but it seems like my search-fu sucks
post #22223 of 23454

have to narrow that right down in this thread it is hard. I used Yamaha pads

 

there is mention of Sony 150, Koss R10 ( Koss pads are usually cheap from their site ~$5 I think ) , some Stax etc

 

and this one is a nice pictorial.

hey it's a start right.

 

You could also figure out measurements roughly and find a clearance outlet that sells electronics/headphones and maybe find something to scavnge off of, locally even. try to keep the inner hole diameter as close as you can but don't go crazy over that aspect.

You may be able to use some ideas from this excellently written and photographed guide by Joop Nijenhuis.

Coby CV185 earpads hit the spot IME: imagebam.com

 

You can also mod them with the stock YH1 foam donuts if you like: http://www.head-fi.org/t/111193/orthodynamic-roundup/20415#post_8673030

It is better than nothing. Thanks for the response guys.
post #22227 of 23454

Some of those are likely better than stock pads also.

Kabeer has made note of this before, but the more "well worn" the pads are, the better the sound often is - we should perhaps be entertaining some of the 'leaky' experiments a few folk have pioneered..dB

post #22229 of 23454

So many things/variables. Thankyou for bringing that to the surface again

 

Maybe not sealing the baffle to cup joint might help with that too?

 

Quick question is there much variation between the HP-50 and the HP-50A variants? Like one series in general is more bass, or is it sort of randomly case specific between each actual unit. Thinking it is case specific but memory here is uhhh hmmmm, well you know.

Been a while since I researched that. If nobody mentions anything I will go back in again and find out.

 

Need to prepare....:ph34r:

;). It's not always the case, but can be for some cans in my experience yup :). Which cans? erm iv lost track a bit heh.  Generally if you are having a hard time taming wild bass bloat then leaky pads are a possible solution. And Nick's next post leads us to a can it works great with:

HP-50S and HP-50A generally have quite a similar sound. But the sound can vary quite a bit between pairs. Iv owned many A's and S's and whilst having the same 'family' of sound, the sound can vary a lot. The A's and S's tend to have a lot of bass, but once you try and tame them they really are a Fun musical can.

 

The HP-50 (no letter suffix, and no pleather headband) seems to be less bassy, so easier to control and get right. But i found the bass monsters more fun.
