Not significantly. Maybe a tad more air and soundstage and a little less bass. These are positive changes IMO. Regardless, the increased comfort is worth it to me whether the changes are perceived as beneficial or not.

Thanks. Going to look for some DT250 velours now.

And you can actually use them for more than 15mins without sweating up your ears. It was worth getting them just for that!

Difficult to put the DT250 pads on?

 

Am I going to be screaming and cussing?

They are right but not to the point where you thinks it breaking the ear casing. I did find one pas harder than the other. Not aire if it was sizing of the pads or my headphones.

Got the HM5's installed.

 

WOW  super comfy.

 

I did remove the stock foam "ring" that covered the drivers since the HM5 had a lining cover and the stock did not.

 

Bass did not suffer at all.

Treble with the stock ring and the HM5 liner was a bit too squelched for me

Removing the foam reopened the treble again.

 

THANK YOU to JohnnyAppleseed and crash88 for their advice and help

Hey guys,

 

I'm reviving this thread a bit to update you all with some mods I've done to my HTF600. I cut out the left/right badges on each cup, dampened the inside of the cup with adhesive felt, put dynamat on the back of the driver and the inside of the cup (where the driver is glued in), added velour HM5 pads, put a copper grill in the new left/right cavities, and put a tiny bit of fiber filling over the driver.

 

WOW! These are definitely a different sounding headphone now! The soundstage is now quite large, bass is more extended is less impact, but also more controlled. The treble is more airy with mote sparkle, thought a tiny bit harsher (will have to experiment with damping). The midrange is still quite present and doesn't sound that congested anymore.

 

The headphone in it's stock for is ok, but not great, and at it's price of $30 it's quite abysmal. Fully modded like this it's quite different. It's brighter, more lively. The bass was my issue with the stock form. it was muddy and too strong. The bass impact was lessened and the bass is now tighter and more controlled by quite a bit.

 

By no means if this headphones now worth $100, it's still low-fi by all standards. I'd say it's more in the $40 range now, but is quite good for the $25 I dropped on it a few years back.

Nice, Any chance of some pics inside the cups?

They seem to have another name in Japan: RP-HT560 

some japanese guy made measurements on them and listed them as one of his favourite (usually our taste seem to match). so i'm gonna try these headphones. for 35-40 euros... you can't lose much.

 

here the frequency response and some other measurements.

I'll post pictures of the internal in the near future, but I don't know when.
