Got a question.  I've demoed the XB700 several times but, each time, I was so focused on the sound that I didn't give much thought to the other aspects of the headphones.  My question is this: Are the pads leather?  I remember them being luxuriously soft and circumaural but I don't remember what they were made of.



I wonder if these would work?

Oh I found those. I think I ranted earlier. I talked to Beyer Friday and they want $10 to ship $10 pads around 40 miles. Call me cheap, but in principle, I just can't go through with that. Even $5 to ship them might have been ok, but considering how close I am and how small of an item it is, nice dice. I'm still holding out hope I can find someone here that wants to sell them. There don't seem to be any other places that sell them.

$10 is standard shipping for anything in a box via USPS or UPS.

$10... I wish.... ghessh, I get nailed $25 to Canada which is equally as silly.

Two questions Bila,   

 

  1)  How much are those cups if your selling them?

 

  2)  Any idea how to get the back off a set of 325s?

 

Thanks in Advance!

It was just the principle of it. They could have mailed in in an envelope (flat pad) for like a few dollars. It doesn't make sense to have something like that shipped such a short distance for that price. Maybe I am just cheap. I did order 2 pairs of HD414 pads today though. I am going to dye them and make flat style pads a le Vwap.

I hate principles.

Please tell me just how this is done?

 

Thanks, Bill.

If you search Vwap pads you will find tons of results. Vwap was a member years ago who took the Senn pads and dyed them black, then hole modded them and put slits like the flat pads.

 

The basic process is to drop the pads into Rit dye with a stabilizing agent (so the dye doesnt leave the synthetic foam) and let them sit for a while. Then wash until no dye leaks out. Then using whatever method (I will likely try a socket and hammer on cement) make a hole in the middle, slightly larger than a quarter. Then last are 6-8 1/2" long radial cuts around the cut area. That's pretty much it. Supposedly them mimic the sound of the flat pads, while being more comfortable, some even say more comfortable than the comfies.

 

In any case, I will soon have comfies, bowls, and 2 pairs of Sennheiser Pads.

Guys, I'm flattered and confused.  Which shells are we talking about?

 

To remove the cups on the 325, go to the hole where the cable is fed.  There you'll find the plastic and the aluminum forming two halves of the hole.  There is where you can leverage the right sized flathead screwdriver to wedge the cups apart.  It's easier than it looks.  If nothing else, it beats the spoon method.  If memory serves, there's nothing holding the metal on except friction itself.  I don't remember battling any glue.

This is what I've been waiting for.  If the old .018 was a little thicker than window screen and .063 was chicken wire, .028 aluminum mesh seems to hit the sweet spot for me.  It's a bit of a pain to bend (though still cuttable with scissors).  I like that it's more grill-like (and spaciously open) while still displaying a sense of style.  I also have .035 but I think .028 is what I've been waiting for and I recommend it to all my patients who chew sugarless gum.


I guess we were thinking of these???????? Didnt you do them????? Maybe we are to lazy to do it ourselves and wait for someone to do all the hard work for us smile.gif smile.gifsmile.gif

if you did these are not they do look nice

Excellent posts Bilavideo. I just ordered my SR60i's a couple hours ago, so I'll get them in a few days.

 

First I'm going to give them a week or so listen to without any modding. Give them a little time to stretch out, and see if I like the sound. If not, then I guess I'll try the quarter modding and removing the felt from the holes around the driver. Basically, I'll try everything up to the part of taking the cans apart. I just don't have the guts to do that. With my luck I'll mess them up.

 

I'm hoping to use these while I'm walking my dog too. My neighborhood is pretty quiet, so hopefully I'll be able to enjoy the music. If there is too much noise coming in and making me not enjoy the music, are there any pads that you can recommend to help fix this a little?

 

Thanks again for tutorial with pictures. I was hoping to stumble across a post like this.

Mine where glued. A hair dryer and the spoon method made quick and easy work of it though.
