Velours. Might just be the particular amp or song I am listening to. I get pretty decent slam most of the time and the bass never ever seems insufficient.

What are some examples of tracks that you were thinking of with regard to the slam?

Ok noob question incoming! When they say the HE4 has magnets in one side, whats on the other?

Mechanical support, so the driver doesn't collapse in on itself due to the magnets.

Not magnets.

Sarcasm aside, HiFiMan includes what appears to be a small damper of some kind on the ear side of the driver.

It's varied from the HE-4's first release to new revisions, but currently, the damper looks like the spokes of a wagon wheel.

What does it do?

Have anyone tried the E12 with the HE-4?

Increase soundstage, better imaging, and takes some sssizzle out of the treble for a less recessed mid. Felt removal and dust cover removal I should say.

Original post is probably several pages back now.

I just tried this. I didn't notice too much difference, only that the sound was a bit more to the sides but to me it was less involving when I heard the singer.

How did you remove the felt behind the driver?

To me it made quite a dramatic difference. Specifically in leveling the mids to the highs.

Hmm maybe I misunderstood. I removed everything on the outside. Is there anything behind the ear pads?

I'm thinking maybe you just took the dust cover off the grill. You'll need to pull the drivers off the cup to take the felt out..

How do you remove it SAFELY? The star felt is TIGHTLY glued or something to the driver...
