BlueMonkeyFlyer was helping me last night convert my custom T50RPs to DBV#3 (the man is brilliant!) and adjusting for the naked drivers/Stax pads that I had.
After A -> Bing the Stax and Shure pads for about half an hour, I can confidently say the Stax pads have more bass, it's a more boomy, full bass, compared to the Shures punchy bass. I would have thought the Shures would have the more bass but it didn't, anyone know why this is? I think it might be due to the seal the Stax pads have compared to the Shures, the Stax almost surround the cups completely, and are layered twice inside near where the baffle meets the cup. I actually prefer the punchy bass of the Shure, but I'm kind of obliged to use the Stax now, I also think the strong point of the Stax is comfort, and while offering good sound, I feel the Shures have a better all-around bass, I believe this is due to DBV#3 being made with Shure pads in mind
Anyway, I have my DBV#3 done, with two layers of transpore tape to account for the naked driver and STAX pads, stiff felt over the cup vents and the rest is pure DBV#3, all thanks to Bluemonkeyflyer, can't say enough good words about him, oustanding chap. And I can say that DBV#3 sounds absolutely fantastic.
