I still wish these never clamped my jaw as bad as they did even with the Beyer velours, loved the sound on them.

Sounds like you need to stretch them out a bit.

For those who have the alpha pads on ur q40's could you post some pics of how they look please? Also is there any special process/modding to get the pads on? How do they fit? Are they loose?
post #1205 of 1638


They fit somewhat loosely. Easy to get on though.

But after good listening sessions i do prefer my ws55 in the overall sound the fun factor is a lot higher...the basslines just keeps rollin in so ******* good,the q40 does not have that.They are very good but just like how they made the ws55 soundwise and really need me to get a pair of the ws99 think i like them more over the q40's.....

Anyone know how to tighten up the ratcheting headband adjustment? mine feel loose and wont stay in the adjusted place.

 

And ouch. The pads are to shallow and my ears touch the driver cover and make them red

My solution using stock pads, inserted 1/3 of one piece of kitchen paperroll into each cup, rolled into a paperroll and stuffed underneath the pads, you don't want it to be too thick so it becomes too deep or the sound signature starts to change quite noticeable (the deeper the more the mids become recessed, in it's stock form it's actually slightly more forward in the mids than the highs so it can be also used to balance it out which is how I percieve it when doing that simple mod that the mids & highs with the right thickness will be on the exact same level).

For the headband issue, try tightening the the Phillips screws on the side and if that doesn't work try shoving some kind of shim in there.

The stock pads suck, one of the known issues. You can try the TP mod or a length of rope under the pad but a long term solution is to swap pads. Depending on your budget you can spend $15 or up to $60. The Shure 840 pads are the low cost fix, Alpha pads from Mr Speakers is the expensive one. I use Alpha pads and to me the comfort is amazing but
didn't hurt the sound at all. Improved it to me.

Hey guys. I bought these headphones 2 months ago and I love them. But I worried becouse the left speaker started to rattle while reproducing bass, lower the bass higher the rattle. I really can't listen to music with this noise, it's really annoying. I tried to put some paper under the pads and rattle stops. I really hope the headphones aren't broken. Is it possible that my ear touch the driver and makes it rattle?

No, they arent briken they should be fine. It's not your ears its just the driver loose. I had the same problems on one of my pairs a while back and they didnt break.

It's a very common problem with these headphones. If you have one of those tiny screwdrivers, remove the pads, unscrew the four screws holding the cup together, and very carefully use some double sided tape to secure the driver to the plastic around it.

I'm trying right now. I unscrewed 3 screw, now I can see the the wires. But I don't know how can I apply the tape. I can't remove the driver..how can I secure it? Is there a guide?

I don't remember what the inside of the cup looks like, but once you open them up you can touch the driver assembly. If you wiggle it a bit you can probably tell whether it rattles or not. It doesn't have to be tape - just use whatever works to fill the gap between the driver and the cup. Glue maybe? Or stuff some folded paper.
