The PANASONIC RP-HTF600-S headphones. More fun than the HD650? - Page 169

post #2521 of 2803

Can someone tell me how comfortable the stock Sony MDR V6 pads are? And how do they sound? I was thinking of picking up a pair to replace these horrid stock pads on the pannies.

The biggest problem with these is the driver 'popping' out if you apply pressure to the outer cups while they are on. 

Oh. I assume this could be fixed by re-gluing?

I dunno. But I know people can temporarily fix it by blowing into the driver.

Why not spend a bit more and get the Beyer DT250 pads which are velour and feel amazing? They only cost ~$20

700

 

Been using this EQ for a pretty long time.

I only had $5 to spend so I couldn't get velour ear pads. I got some replacement sony v6 pads. I'll post pics and tell you how they feel/sound on the pannies.

Also took the time to put a layer of Dynamat Xtreme (poked all over with a screwdriver) in the cups and a layer of Silverstone acoustic foam on top of that. Also put Dynamat on the back of the driver magnet, and I mass loaded the baffle with some Plasticine. The stock vent covering is left in place, and I made sure not to cover it. These are all materials I had left over from modding my D2000s and T50RPs.

 

They sound pretty awesome right now. Highs seem better extended and more detailed overall without becoming sibilant or bright. Bass seems to be tightened up and more in line with the rest of the sound, but still extends just as deep and punches hard. Overall, they sound more refined, clearer...better overall. Amazing sound for $30 + whatever it costs to mod them. They don't sound too closed either. I have found that stuffing the earpads at all makes the sound worse and doesn't really help the soundstage at all. The vents shouldn't need to be covered up at all either, but I suppose they could be tuned to one's preferences.

 

If anyone's drivers lose sound, you might need to blow on them. Sometimes when you adjust the cups, air pressure will force the drivers to be pushed the wrong way, making them cut out (or be extremely quiet). If you blow on them from the front side, they should come back. It happens to me a lot. Unfortunately, I think I might have loosened the drivers too much or something. Sometimes you can hear them crackle as if they're being moved in the wrong direction or something.

 

I also find that the left cup sometimes sound clearer than the other cup. I believe this is because when recabling them, my friend and I cleared all of the existing solder from the left driver's contacts. The original solder was still left on the right driver's contacts. I'm guessing the left driver has a better signal. I could be wrong, though...this is all just a big guess.

 

Anyway, I did these mods because the housing Panasonic used is really cheap. The drivers are actually pretty nice, so the dampening and acoustic foam really helped. Pictures:

I just picked up my pair from the basement and i was surprised how much bass there was! But there was a problem, something was rattling around inside the cup..So while i was taking them apart i applied some mods to them. I dampened the baffle with dampening mass as shown in your pictures..I also i put the same clay around the back of the cups since there is a harsh edge. Then i drilled two 10mm holes right above the panasonic logo and then added some cotton. I was hoping to tighten up the sloppy bass and give it some more air and it totally works! Noticeable bigger sound stage and added clarity and control. While i was at it i put on the second pair of pads from the Shue SRH-840 now i have an enjoyable comfortable can for easy listening...Still a bit to much bass though.

Well after 2 pairs of the 600's that developed problems-first pair blew a driver within 2 hours, 2nd pair had a weaker right side after a week-I picked up a pair of the JVC HA-RX700 and am glad I did. Don't get me wrong the 600's sound fantastic! But I just couldn't see myself trying a 3rd pair right now. The JVC's are awesome and anyone liking the 600's would like them. Great build quality, comfortable, great sound.

post #2529 of 2803

I also have the 700 and i agree with you..Overall the JVC is a more complete headphone..With some stuffing in the cups they sound very good indeed..I prefer them over my Srh-840 sometimes.

I like my 600's. I miss the detail and clarity of my Superlux though.

 

Then again the Superlux have very very very bright trebly sound so its not a big surprise.

post #2532 of 2803

Oh no! My headphones are falling apart.

 

I've already had one piece of plastic detached from my headphones, but I didn't know where it was and didn't care much after that.

 

Now, I had another piece detached and my left speaker got a bit loose. My headphones have lost three plastic pieces that stabilize the rails. Left speaker has lost both and right has one left.

 

I think these are not gonna hold very long. How does the Superlux HD668B perfom in gaming compared to HTF600?

The superlux have a much wider stage over the HTF600. Great for online shooting. I had to throw some clear tape on my head band to hold them together. Minus that the first page pair is still rocking.

post #2534 of 2803

I have to say the Superlux 681 is built much better then the Pannies for same price.

post #2535 of 2803

So when the HTF600's go to the point I can't use them, should I go for HD668B or HD681 soundstage wise?
