Especially if you only paid 12 euros for them!
Any update on the pads and if you liked them?
Since I have two of basically the same headphone, I'm planning on a few little mods. Going to try playing with a little plasticine in the cups and the foam removal mod. With two of the same it will be easier to a/b and figure out if the mods do anything for me.
Well, I received the pads today from juno.co.uk (part no.: HPAEC750). As you said, they aren't flush but they don't come off on their own either. The main difference to the stock ones is the comfort, which is much, much better!
I also noticed slight changes to the sound:
- wider soundstage;
- rounder sound (IMO an improvement, as having removed the inner foam made them a little bit edgy);
- smoother, more pleasant bass.
The cups still don't seal very well and the isolation increase is negligible, but, overall, I recommend them for the slightly smoother sound and most definitely for the added comfort.
Thanks again, shadow!
Here's a pic:
The headphones are sitting on some fiber wool (used for cleaning fish tanks and as filters) that is going from the bag into the cups. I saw this mod a while in the rockgrotto forums. That user was experimenting on a Superlux HD660 - he liked the changes to the sound. I can't remember what they were though (more forward mids, i believe), but, screw it, this stuff is cheap.. So, let's see what it does to the HM3's.
