Like golden angels riding the backs of rainbow unicorns... If I had to guess. smily_headphones1.gif

I bought them with the cocobolo wood cups and metal grills already in place, and I used fabric dye to make 414 pads black.

 

I wish I could compare them to stock - I've never heard a stock MS1 before, just these - and I absolutely love them.

 

They sound more pleasant than a billion virgins knocking at my front door.

 

They sound better than that "tick tick tick" noise that ATMs make when dispensing cash. And we all love that noise.

 

(In otherwise, subjectively, I like the way they sound.)

Those look beautiful. I've been thinking about getting woodies, but I'd like to try the ms1000 mod, maybe recable and a headband. So much to do so little money

I reversed quarter modded my 414 pads, they're more comfortable then the stock comfies and the 414 pads stock combined. I'm really enjoying them. I wouldn't know what to choose if i had to choose one headphone out of the three i own. The ms1-i's were $110 while the other 2 were $200+ at the time.. lol

Add me to the ms1 fan club- been using mine for about 5 years now in a music production context. Great sound and an incredibly flat response. I have mine fitted with the L-cush's FWIW. 

 

Best 99$ I ever spent!

Welcome!

Also regarding pads, i tried mine with quater mods, had a few strands of hair into the driver, due to the exposed area, had it removed. (just a caution if you're going to do this)

 

Still looking for a decent woodie so i can have them changed! Would post a pic in the near future.

Cheers! I'm pretty sure I was here some time back but can't for the life of me remember the account name or email I set it up with. I'm probably somewhere else in this post!

Just put these on for the first time in a while..

 

They really aren't as bass-light as a lot of people make them out to be. 

 

They definitely aren't big, bad basshead rumblers or anything, but they definitely punch pretty deep and hard.

I have 4 pair of headphones that I listen to. He-400,Sennhiesser Amperiors,Harmon Kardon CL & Ms1. I like them all for what they do but the Ms1's really have that real feeling when listening to rock,live & acoustical stuff. I am very pleased with these! Not great for bassy music, That's what the He 400's are for.

I like the way you think. I do really feel that the MS1 has a special place and time in my personal collection.
