I am scared to take it out, lol. I might buy one extra to see if it's better for my D7k.

@Canadian411

 

In am very interested about the difference between D7000 original pads and upgraded with TH900 pads.

 

If they make the D7000 better, I will buy a set of TH900 pads.

I tried the alpha pads on the d7000 yesterday. I like the fit a lot better as the stock pads don't seal well enough for me. However, because the alpha pads are so much thicker, my ears are farther away from the drivers and the sound thinned out. The bass was diminished and not in a good way. I'm in the lookout for some better pads, too, but the alpha pads aren't it.

I'm going to do the basic mods as soon as I can get my hands on some of the material. That, as well as shortening the cable and terminating with a balanced plug, are the mods I'm willing to make on an already great set of headphones.

Anyone try the yulong A28 with the d7000 yet? I might pick one up...maybe one of the cheapest fully balanced amps out there.

Oh my, I just read the spec on Yulong A28.

Balance output power :
600ohm:400mW;
300 ohm: 700mW;
150 ohm: 1.3W;
32 ohm: 2.5W

This thing can drive HE6. ! and at 25ohm, prob 3 watts ? for D7000 in balance mode. Nice ! I will get this one day.

They would be an easy swap and fit perfectly.

It does look like a really solid contender. It has 2 SE outputs for high/low efficiency and 3 pin xlr, and 4 pin xlr. I may end up with that someday. With those power specs, I don't think it would really give the HE-6 justice though.

Yeah, I'm not sure it'll drive the he6 as well as other amps...I've read somewhere that it doesn't do much for the k1000 and the he6 seems to be this generation's k1000 in terms of inefficiency.

But for most normal headphones? A28 should be more than enough at least in terms of power output. I think I'll pick one up to see how well it does with the d7000, alpha dogs, and hf2, all of which are/will be balanced.

I'd be pretty interested in what you find with the D7000, and will keep an eye out for any comments.

Since this morning I was swapping between the stock D7000 and Alpha pads, my impression is the same.
With alpha pads everything become muddy, also dilute the bass and trebles.
Sound stage is bit better, deeper indeed but not wider, but its more comfortable in the backside of the ear than the stock. Still suffers the Audeze House clamping force.

I think I know why I always thought all the Audeze headphones suffer from the sound stage, it's the angle earpads.
My ears are way too far from the drivers.

I am going to order few alternatives and post some positive wink.gif

Hi,

 

 

Same here with the alpha pads.

 

I've just received my Alpha Dog, with an extra pair of Alphapads.

 

Those are really comfy, but so thick it is too far from the ears.

 

Plus it's lot heavier than the D7000' pads.

 

TH900' might be THE option.

Member jibzilla went with Stax pads.  I'm seriously considering getting a pair of them at a price of $160 but that price gives me pause.

I've tried a handful of pads with the D7000, and the stock ones really hit the mark for me.

+1

 

I experimented with pads quite a bit when I had my D7000 and stock was the way to go.

 

They are not supposed to seal. It's the lack of a seal that keeps the bass in check.

I know the feeling. These and the HD650 are the only "departed" headphones that I want back!
