For some thats a improvement but i kind of miss that on rock. On the hd 25 guitars and vocals feel more alive and agressive. Artic monkeys first album is a blast on the hd25. Ont the amperior is good as well but i kind of miss that. Its like hd25 meets sony mdr 1r...

Silver plated copper (SPC) is what I decided on, but good straight copper will also give noticed improvement...

Cheers mate, I'll check this out.

When I was changing to the velour ear pads, I noticed that the inside of the pads doesn't seem to be perfectly circular/symmetrical.

It is suppose to be placed in a particular position or doesn't it matter?

I'm just concern that it'll alter the sound coming from the drivers.

As far as sound goes, the velour pads seems to make the sound more dark and veil but that's just my first impression. Maybe it's just me.

It's almost as if I wanted the HD25's to arrive in order to do this.

 

Also did the complete Custom Can's uber mod, and I have to say, it's an engaging pair of headphones!

Engaging is a great word to describe the HD25.  Give her a little love, and she'll give back many hours of enjoyment...

"Her"?

My HD25 with uber mod is fighting my HD650's for desktop position in my listening spot. It's like experiencing a cat fight in front of me!

 

The HD650's are like sitting in a jacuzzi, whilst the HD25's are like having a thai massage. I just cannot decide!

Don't decide, simply enjoy both.

I'm on my 3rd pair, the 13-II and it sounds even better when amped than the normal version. 

The um3x is by far my favourite iem and the hd25 sounds even better with better detail, sound stage & bass extension.

Congratulations on owning such a rare variant. Amongst all the talk of cables and such like, the 25-13 hardly gets a mention. As i use my hd25s almost exclusively amped Id love to try these one day.

Anyone has any experience with re - cabling the hd25? I got a hd25 aluminium version and the cable is kinda long to use on the go.

I'm thinking of getting a blue dragon cable with the right length from moon-audio. Anyone tried it before? Or is there a better after - market cable maker available?
post #2428 of 2428

That would be the right cable for sure.  Great combo with HD25.
