Absolutely not fatiguing, but well detailed and natural.
I would like to make the head-stage a little bigger, any idea? I cannot find it here, could you hep please?
The easiest way to get a bit more soundstage is to "stuff" just under the earpad with cottonballs, tissue, foam, etc, You can try a few different methods, but I always found angling the drivers to mimic Denon or Stax pads works the best. Alternatively, I created a method of stacking srh940/1440/1840 pads ontop of the stock pads to create an effect of what I like to call "super sound stage". It mimics the "airy" signature of the HD580/600/650. The caveat to this, is the Tx0rps become very difficult to fine tune, and the velour pads tend to "suck up" all the bass. I was working with BMF to get the best results from these pads and he tried everything in his bag of tricks, but they just would never sound as good as srh840 pads.
I encourage everyone to try pad stacking just because it's so easy to do and really changes the sound in a fun way. If you have a decent amp, this method can really add a beautiful soundstage while keeping the "liquid mids" that well all have come to love from this driver. I don't think pad stacking is a permanent solution, just a fun idea to try out.
You can search this thread for "stacked" or "srh1440" or srh1840" to find more information on the above topics.
