shure srh840 earpad mod, well sort of.

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

hello everyone. i can't post pics because it's not a mod where it's stable. i don't really think it even counts as a mod. what i did was take the extra earpads that came with my headphones and i double them on the ones already on the headphones. doubling the space between your ears and the drivers. i find it improves the clarity, and sound stage. also it is much more comfortable. anyone else tried this? i find it very effective.

Not for shure, but I made custom pads for my Grados and my T50RP's and both increased in clearity, soundstage and bass.

Do you have any pic's of how you doubled them up?  I don't have the spare earpads with me right now.

I think it'll also reduce speed/attack and PRaT, since the driver is farther from your ear.

Just tried it.  made the bass sound 'boomy' and definitely a loss of clarity for me.  Did you cut the foam inner from the second pair Casey - or are you listening through that?  If you're just simply sitting one on top of the other like I just tried, I can't see how you could possibly increase clarity (the sound going through two layers of foam).

 

Pleased it's helping you - sounds awful (muddy, muffled, boomy) to me.

Is it true the second set of included pads are different than the ones that come on the headphones?

maybe it was just placebo affect but i thought it sounded better.

Different people, different ears. different tastes Casey - if ti works for you, go for it ;)

 

I'd try cutting the center out of the second pair of pads - but I don't want to ruin mine.  Plus I think the 840's just sound great to me as they are.

ya i don't want to wreck my second pair of pads. they sound great without the extra pads but i thought they were more fun with double pads.
