M-Audio Q40 Impressions (long w/pics) - Page 108

post #1606 of 1608
Just for kicks, I swapped the stock pads with Dt880 velour pads and I thought why not post some impressions. Comfort increases significantly, soundstage gets a bit wider, treble a bit more present and airier, but apart from that, the sound honestly sucks biggrin.gif isolation is worsened, bass loses impact (and extension), mids lose their weight, the overall thickness and meatiness in the sound that everyone loves is gone.
They do look better now though wink.gif


anyway, the right side ear cup's wire on my q40's is worrying. It got thin over time because sometimes when I fold the headphone up the wire gets stuck inside the gap between the notches and ear cup.

Also, just ordered the HM5 thick pads. Should be here in 10-30 days.

Thanks to those who recommended them.. smily_headphones1.gif

Think you'll like the thick HM-5 pads. I still have them on......and I have been prone to swapping pads on my Q-40 a bit.
