So guys, I made the purchase. It turns out that the headphones at the store I mentioned earlier were not YH-1's, but in fact YH-100's. I brought the price down to $175 and they're in great condition. The only con I've found is that the highs are slightly muffled. Will adding felt damping help with that?

Good buy. What amp are you using?
post #23240 of 24691

Right now it's the TubeMagic D1, but I'll be buying the Lyr 2/ Bifrost (2?) later.

This is the amp I have and this is a great deal. It can power my 5le which is no easy task. It made my yh100 very loud at half volume. The yh need a powerhouse and this gives a great bang for your buck.

Oh the TubeMagic is fine, I have my PC's volume on 60% and the dial is on less than half. Would the mod mentioned here be a good idea?

Everybody's doing it. I would have but I sold my pair for 300 dollars about a year ago.
You should also try to find a way to beef up those pads. I still have dimples in my ears.

How would I go about disassembling them to get inside the driver housing? I do think new pads will help, because when I move them slightly further off of my ears, it sounds much less muffled.

@spbach - 175$ for YH-100, nice buy. How do they sound stock?

They actually sound very good for being 30+ years old, it's slightly muffled because of the drivers being too close to the ears (old pads) and I think that adding damping and new pads will improve the sound greatly. Before I take them apart I want to see how to disassemble them.
post #23249 of 24691

How easy were those to put on? Did they just slip over or do I need to use double-sided tape?

post #23250 of 24691

You'll need tape indeed, and to disassemble the baffles you'll need to reach the screws behind the earpads: http://wiki.faust3d.com/wiki/images/5/5a/YH-100-page2.jpg


BTW,  HiFiMAN HE-400 Review

 the upper mids are more recessed (..) the mids can sound a bit distant
