Just listened to some Fostex T50RPs today... WOW! - Page 683

post #10231 of 10713

Shure 550 and 750 comes to mind. Pics of them in the big Roundup thread.

The 750 pads are big enough to sit around the ear though.

what do you guys think about the mad dog mod?

post #10234 of 10713

The Mad Dog thread is flooded with people who love them. I don't see very many complaints in there. From what I read about them, it sounds like they may be too dark for me. I would definitely not consider my self modded T50rp to be dark.

Yeah, they're definitely pretty dark compared to some of the mods out there. The treble still sparkles, but it's not forward in any way, shape, or form.

from what I saw in the DIY kit for mad dog its just a difference in pads and cable no? what sound would the shure 840 pads have?

post #10237 of 10713

Not sure, I am using the same V-Moda cable and the Alpha pads on my self modded T50rp. After a few weeks of tweaking I got them sounding great, I actually like them more than my Q701, which I never thought I would.

The sound of the 840 pads will have a lot to do with the other mods being done as well. Simply just swapping out the stock pads for the 840 pads though will increase bass quantity, and bass extension. It is a good place to start, but definitely play with other mods as well.

Right now I'm just running the rock wool. Not exactly sure what method most people are using but I made sure to get a decent layer or rock wool on top of paxmate pyramids covering the entire inner portion of the cup. I would say play around until you hit your desired sound.

Visit BMF's Incremental mod thread, then do an internal search on "BMF Rock Wool Mod - Improved".  

 

I think the rock wool mod is super easy to install and gives pretty terrific results out-of-the-box. But the best sounding T50RPs I have are DBV#3. Mind you, they were meticulously tuned by BMF to a degree that I would never have the patience or skill to achieve myself.

post #10244 of 10713

Are there any decent cables that I can use with my fostex t50rp that are sold by amazon :|

post #10245 of 10713

this is the one that is typically recommended but only black is available currently:   http://v-moda.com/audio-only-cable/ 

you'll have to order directly from v-moda though.
 

fwiw, i'm still using the stock cable - just treated with deoxit.
