I just got some SR-60's and am interested in quarter modding them. I was told that Radio Shack carries cheap pads (around $5) that will fit. Does anyone know if this is true and if so, what the part number is? The biggest pads I found at the local store didn't look like they would fit.

Can anyone help me out on this query?

I was trying to do the mod last night (puting in a 3.5m mono or stereo plug) but before i do it i actually took a DDM to measure the continuity and realised that there is actually continuity from the ground channel(on the drivers) to the right/left section of the headphone jack.

Is this normal? or is there a leak?
I also found out that the section on the drivers there is continuity between the 2 solder points.

Can someone help me out on this.

yeah about 32 ohms
post #140 of 5273
so that is normal is it?

I am not sure about this, I only know that when it comes to cable construction there shouldn't be any leak between ground and the left/right channel.

In this case, can i just apply heat and wire the jacks in or is it necessary to remove the whole driver
post #141 of 5273
Are the wires attached to the driver? If yes ,left to ground 32 ohm ,right to ground 32 ohm, left to right 64 ohms.

I am thinking of doing the adaptor on one side, but was wondering if the longer wire going to the right driver, would it have any impact on the SQ.

Manage to make it into place a stereo plugs in on the left cup
Also terminated a Canare Starquad cable for use with the phones


Another look at it with the new mods and modded hd414 pads
post #147 of 5273
How comfortable are those modded HD414 pads?

I really liked the bowl pads best, but they seriously hurt my ears. I'm currently using the "comfies" and although they don't sound nearly as good to me, they're wearable.
post #148 of 5273
i find the bowl pads better sonically as well, but they hurt the ears after prolong wearing.

The pads are ok i and i would think that they are better then the comfies, I do not have the comifes. but if i have to choose i would still prefer the bowls, unless of cos when i am working on the com and not really concentrating on the music.
post #149 of 5273
is it worth recabling sr-60's with cardas or is that just a huge waste of money?

also for the hd414 pad mod...you cut out all the recessed foam in the middle?
post #150 of 5273
Never tried the cardas in fact, have been really busy to even touch the phones. yup i just cut a hole in the centre
