Grill mod: http://www.head-fi.org/t/619447/hifiman-regrilling-mod

 

Here is mine: http://www.head-fi.org/t/619447/hifiman-regrilling-mod/285#post_10625285

 

The other 'mod' I will do is pick up the new HE560 pads when they come out...they are based off of the jergpads.


Ah, okay. I'm buying a pair that already has the fuzzor mod done :P Wish it had the grill mod done already as well.

Yeah, I plan on picking up those pads as well, including the snap-on headband pad for comfort.

And oh, is there anyone that would do the grill mod for me?

Yeah, just read over it. Does seem it. I think a honeycomb looking grill would be sweet. Where would I get that from? lol. Then spray paint it orange :P

Besides this, the jergpad/400i/560 pads, snap on headband (well not for sound but comfort as that's important too), fuzzor mod, is there any other mods that make this headphone sound better?

Buy a trash-can made of mesh or something :)

I used this  http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00F3FJYSQ  then spray-painted it red.  Pix are in the re-grilling thread.  It's pretty easy to work with, and you can get a few pairs out of it.  Best of all, it's more open than the mesh letter holders/trash cans.  Also, the magnets in the cans have no effect, as it's aluminum.  Of course, it is more expensive.

You might have some trouble working with that because of the moulded round bump and it looks thicker and sturdier than most of the mesh used for the grille mod. The reason people recommend mesh rubbish bins, letter trays and similar is that the wire is thin and easy to cut as well as being flat enough to allow the reinstallation of the retaining rings.

All right. Thanks for the heads up!

The sound quality is great, and seems like it's the best value for this price. But I have to say, it's too HEAVY!!!

I can't enjoy the music anymore after i wear it for 30 minutes.I think hifiman realized  it and the new model HE560 comes much more comfortable. At lease it looks much better ( I haven't try it yet) .

Sorry to hear that.. You might get used to it, though. Maybe try a clip on headband.
