Hi guys, I don't know if this would be the right place to mention this, but I just tried a mod that I would recommend for people with the AD 700 headphones.
As I would imagine, this headphone would cause some people discomfort after an hour due to the thin pads. This happened to me as well, so I tried to switch the pads out. The pads are thin and rather awkwardly shaped, so I had to look for pads that could fit without damage.
I noticed that, using the pads from my Superlux HD 681 Evo (I would assume K240 pads would work as well). My initial impressions using the velour pads from the HD 681 was that the soundstage was even larger and the treble was more sparkly. Using the pleather pads, I felt that the bass was definitely a bit stronger, while directional cues seemed easier to detect. I didn't feel that the pads altered the sound very distinctly. These are all initial impressions, so take these observations with a bit of salt.
If anyone can try this mod and tell me their impressions as well, I would appreciate it.
