REVIEW: JMoney Audio Genuine Leather earpads for Beyer DT770/880/990 - Page 17

post #241 of 322

sorry guys. I don't actively advertise anymore. Only through word of mouth.

 

Razor, something creepy just occurred...I sent you a PM seeing if you were still interested, then I see these posts today...the timing...

 

Have a great New Year guys! Working through those emails after the holiday. Please bear with me. Thanks!

Thanks Jeremy, I received them today!

As you can see, they are... huge!

 

The dimensions are approximately: 3,5 cm thickness, 10,5 cm outer diameter and 6 cm inner diameter, versus beyer's DT990 pads: 2,3 cm thickness, 10 cm outer diameter and 6 cm inner diameter. In my hurry and excitement to try them on I forgot to take side-by-side and before/after photos tongue.gif

They feel great too, however I can't really decide yet which I like better on my head, as beyer's stock (velour?) pads are also super comfortable. They even smell great, and after everything I've read about J$'s v1 beyer pads I'm happy to find out that they certainly live up to that hype as well :-)

 

In terms of sound alterations, these pads are giving exactly what I've been wanting from my DT990/600 ever since I got them. Slightly more bass! As a matter of fact, I'd say these pads are leaning towards "quite a bit" instead of "slightly" when it comes to bass quantity, especially in the deep sub-bass region. Which I personally think is totally awesome. That sub-bass drone that I'm so addicted to is more powerful than I've ever heard, and it does that without sacrificing any of the DT990's crystal clear sound (unlike the DT770pro pads did, what a horrible experiment that was...) But I'm pretty sure there's an entire legion of head-fi'ers out there who wouldn't be able to take this amount of bass for granted.

Oddly enough, I think that despite the bigger size (if that's relevant at all) the overall soundstage and depth has decreased a tiny little bit. Will do some more testing with familiar albums because I might be wrong and it seems quite contradictory if it really were the case.

I find the stock DT990 a little boomy in the bass (not sub-bass) region. How would you describe bass with the new pads?

post #244 of 322

I would say it has even more bass impact than stocks, so if that's in any way related to being "boomy" I don't think the J$ v2's are for you frown.gif

 

 

Quote from Skylab
 I tried them on the DT990 as well, and the pads from JMoney also sound excellent on the DT990. The 990's have a little less bass, but a little less recessed midrange, and a better soundstage, when using the JMoney pads versus the Beyer leather pads.

 

It's funny because the way I hear it, I think the v2 pads kind of do the opposite of what Skylab described about DT990 + J$ v1 biggrin.gif

Looking forward to read impressions from others!

So as far as I understand, Jeremy is still taking orders for these right?

Yes via email but don't expect them for a while tbh.

post #247 of 322

By email, you mean using their order form on their website?

Not quite sure, ask RazorJack.

post #249 of 322

yeah, I sent an order through the form on his website and received a reply shortly after.

post #250 of 322

Thanks Razor. I know you've been waiting a while :(...sorry about that.

 

Got back from holidays. Answering all emails TODAY.

 

post #251 of 322

I ordered a set of his V2 pads which should be here within a couple weeks. I will also be doing a review of these when I get them. From what he's told me, they are going to be very thick and fix the issues of the previous versions. So excited!!!

post #252 of 322

I made on Sunday a request via Web page but no answer ... 

post #253 of 322

It takes a while for him to get back to you, but I know he will!

post #254 of 322

Bought a set 2nd hand pair from ApatN and put them on my "DT880 closed back" with the modded Superlux housings. Sound is inconspicuous compared to stock velours, but they look & feel nicer. Build quality is good, Jeremy's subcontractor from that time frame seemed to have worked properly, hope he/she got more than just a few pennys for that.

What's so different about your Superluxed CB? The Jmoney pads did sound different when I had them on my CB.
