Ah... I owe you a big debt of thanks then for giving my dt48 some bass! A major improvement.

 

Cheers!

How do the HD solo pads affect the rest of the sound?

The HD Solo pads are just the right size to fit inside the DT48 ear pads, giving a fantastic seal, So no more problems with seal issues or bass.

post #3545 of 3760

As I understand it, the better the seal with the dt48, the flatter the frequency response overall....not just the bass region. From maniacal71: " the idea of this is to connect the sound waves directly to the ear canal, this way the FR chart will be true, as they did the coupler pick up." That's how Beyer measured them, and the frequency response was very flat, if I remember the graph correctly.

Does this change the overall character of the headphone or does it just add a little bit of what it needs? Im asking about real world noticeable results here. What was your impression about the change in sound? Seems like the mod would mess with the inside ear cup dimensions, which is usually a bad thing but sometimes good.

That only hold true for headphones that don't have the the inner ear pad. The inner pad on the dt48 prevents any sound bouncing around between the ear and the pads. So what I'm saying is that it's the same frequency response as you'd get with a good seal with the original beyer inner pads....no change. It only adds bass for those of us who aren't getting a good seal with the beyer inner pads. If you're already getting a good seal with the beyer pads, the pad mod shouldn't change anything. I'll listen later and pay attention to see if the highs are effected by the extra foam padding. I doubt they are, but I'll check.

With the foam pad mod it's more critical to make sure that the opening is centered right on top of the ear canal. With the stock pads you have a little leeway. With the mod, If it's not centered exactly over the ear canal opening, you're not getting a totally clear sound. I imagine it's the same with the Beats solo pads. And, no change in sound other than an increase in the bass.

Am loving the DT48 with this Objective 2 Amp. Bass extends even lower, highs as well. I think you guys have to try this combination.

post #3550 of 3760

I was on the fence about that amp....but you may have pushed me over the edge....haha. It has a very low output impedance. Are you using your impedance adapter? If so, how does it sound straight out of the O2? I know Beyer designed the dt48 to work best out of a 120ohm headphone jack

It sounds perfect without the impedance adapter, it is definitely a very high quality amp. The adapter i'm using is just the mini jack reducer,

OK, thanks. I wish they would put a 1/4 jack on the O2.. Which builder did you get yours from, btw?

I asked a fellow Headphiler to assemble it, but i don't think there would be much difference with builders, I have the AC to AC charger as well as the Rechargeable batteries. On Ebay there is a person who can probably make that 3/4 output mod together with the assembly.

I bit the bullet and bought one with an AC adapter from JDS labs since it comes with a one year warranty. Looking forward to trying it with my other phones as well as with the dt48.

You won't regret it, before the O2, I hadn't been able to reproduce the SQ of a desktop SS amp for portable use.
