I've got another experiment for the HE4 lol. Being I tore the felt on one of the drivers trying to remove it, I have one full one intact. So..... I am cutting it in half and doing a half felt to each cup and see what the sound does. :wink_face:

do tell sir, i will follow whatever you do if it ends up doing anything good/different. Should have time tonight or tomorrow night.

Now, someone sell me a usb bifrost or a peactree dac-itx on the cheap cheap...

I dunno guys, the HE-4 sounds just right to me. I don't see a need to mod them. Just my 2 cents.

If I knew more on the science I'd know where frequencies are tuned on the diaphragm....

Oh I agree, but I like to tinker, and as long as its reversible, ill try a few mods. Still need some wood cups at some point too! And maybe, some of those new angled pads

I agree about the pads. With the current pads there is a gap behind my ears, but it is very small. Where would I get angled pads? Are they featured on the new 400i/560?

There are denon aftermarket angled pads for $40 shipped. I think the new h ifimans will be cheaper in March/April if you wait

You know. My denons could use new pads. Where can they be found? Any out there like the jmoney pads?

Ya I was speaking of the new hfm angled pads. I can definitely wait a few months, but would like a little more ear room.

Scroll back a few pages and you'll see my post. You can also find it in the HE400 vs HE500 vs HE4 thread on pg 10 or 11 I believe.

A lot of users own HiFiMan products for a long time before they realize that the cups can swivel. Not sure you are having this issue, but if you swivel the cups, you won't have issues behind your ear. My HE-4's don't swivel very well, they are really tight, but after messing around a bit, I finally got the right amount of swivel on both sides and I don't have to mess with it anymore.
