Thanks for the review ~ I have two questions however. 1. Where can I get a braided cable just as one pictured in the very first photo? 2. Is it possible to change stock pads to something that goes around the ear to improve comfort of these cans? I have no idea what to get and where. If you have links or tutorials for cord + pads (cheaper is better), feedback is very welcome. Thanks in advance.
I'm pretty sure that's the thin cable that came with the headphones and he sleeved it himself using braided sleeving such as from here: http://ftwpc.com/ and here's some tutorials on sleeving cables: http://www.overclock.net/t/1122053/lutro0-customs-sleeving-tool-tutorials
And there has been mention in this thread of different pads that work; I don't recall which pads off hand.
But I just got these in the mail last night; I have to say, even before burning them in I really like the sound on these. I can hear how some people say they're too heavy on bass, but overall I really like them. That being said I must also say that I've never really had any good headphones. I've had IEMs but not headphones; also the IEMs I've owned have maily been skullcandy. I've had Ink'd, Full Metal Jackets, and Titans; not from SC have been the Meelectronics M9p. I'm all about value, which is why I've never paid more than 30 bucks for IEMs and now headphones. I'm sure when I have disposable income in the future I'll end up spending a lot of headphones lol
