How I have it right now:
The velour 940 pads on top of the stock ones. I sort of got this idea from Neil Peart's setup, and I had done it before by putting the old V6 pads on top of the stock ones(not permanently, but using tape just to hold it in place and pressure from the band/my head keeping it there)...I actually liked it but the V6 pads were a little too small/shallow. The fitment is so much better with the stacked pads(I guess I have a small head?) and the bass is back. Also, the 940 pads directly on the housing slid around a lot(as stated above, they fit loosely on there to begin with). The signature still sounds similar to stock; I may try removing some of the cover material(I don't know the technical term; but the piece of fabric that covers the driver) and see how that works out. Though, otherwise I'm digging this setup, at the moment. :)
Does anyone know how the 840 pleather pads compare to the stock m50 pads? Not sound-wise, but comfort/feel. I like the way the Sony V6 pads feel, while the M50s just sticky/feel like plastic.
This is very interesting! How did you attach the 940 pads on top of the M50 pads?
