Hi
What do you think about this phones? Do you think that they can play better than q-jays? Can you recomend me what is the best choice? I prefer quality sound.

Thank you for help

Nobody didn't have a chance try ES7, D1001?

the only thing about the denon's is they are a little light in the bass, and my 1000's midrange was a bit vague. it needed a bit more bite.

I guess everyone prefers quality sounds?

I've just got the ES7 today. Not heard the 1001. I'm happy with the ATs. They have a fun sound & they look so nice

ES7's if you care about more the sound, the D1000's if it is comfort.
The ES7 has a bit more detail and soundstage.

I would do the blu-tak and cotton stuffing mod to them though. Then they are perfect!

Forget about the Bose OE. I have all three of the phones you mentioned, and the Bose simply doesn't come close to either the D1001 or the ES7. As for the other two, the D1001 is crisp and bright, while the ES7 has more punch and is more fun to listen to.

Thanks for comments. Q-jays has very good sound and fun but I want try different costruction according to I make decision what will be better for me on travel, I hope that soundstage will be better then q-jays.
And what about highs in ES7? I will buy probably ES7's looks like exelent, but it isn't important for me.
I tried Bose OE last day, they have monster bass and sound is warm, sound is not bad but neither good, price is overpriced.

I'm interested in trying that with my pair, do you have a link to a thread/post with the procedures?

I tried to search with many combination, all I could find are references to a blu-tak mod, but no specifics on how to do it :/

Thanks

Line cups with a bit of blutak, blutak the back circle of the driver, and then fill the rest of the cups with some light cotton or polyfill stuffing.

Viola!

Thanks, I'll take a look at them tonight, see if I can figure out how to open them up w/o resorting to a hammer

Gonna go to Staples after work pick up some blutak

I don't really get that part, does it mean that I should fill the back of the cups with a thin layer of blutak? I've got the ES7 too, and I've blutak'd the back (little circle) and added some cotton. It improves the ES7

I'd be nice of someone took a picture so I'd know exactly what to do.. I assume taking the pads off is not too hard and not much involved in getting into the drivers?

A thin layer of blutak on the back of the cup is right
