Should these have more bass than an AKG Q701 with these mods:
-reinforced the baffle with a non hardening modeling clay
-stuffed the cups with the Rite-Aid brand cotton roll
-some foam in the cups
-rolled up a tissue and stuffed in rear of each pad to angle them a little bit and give a better seal against my head.
using an E17 with them as a DAC and amp:
-medium gain, about half volume, which makes them seem just about as easy/hard to drive as the Q701
I have the Shure 840 pads on order, they should be here tomorrow. Should these already have more bass than the Q701 with the stock pads though? Right now these just sound like a Q701 with a more rolled off treble. They may sound just a tad bassier than the Q701, but not by much. How do I make these bass monsters?
I basically want them to have a lot of bass, with the same forward and clear mids that they already have, and an HD650 like treble. I want lots of bass impact and really deep extended bass. How do I make these into bass monsters? Are the 840 pads alone going to make a huge difference?
