Yes, I am sure they eventually will, but probably not until after the Boom Mic Pro & the V-moda Verza (amp) are released. The Boom Mic is getting pre-orders now & will ship out in 2-4 weeks from now. It took them from December to beginning of March (~4 months) for them to perfect & start selling a product that they already made when the pre-order VTF-100 were sold.

 

The Verza is still being tested/tweaked around with, and I do not believe the "DD pads" have even been put into development or testing phase yet, and you have to consider working out the logistics and the manufacturing time so it will probably be a while.

 

I would say the earliest optimistic projection for DD pad release from a company like V-Moda would 3-4 months from now (June-ish) if they really buckled down & focused on getting this out. Realistically, I don't think they will be available until sometime in the Fall 2013. Of course, this is all pure speculation.

 

However, that's why I ended up returning my M100s, because I figured by the time pads are released for them, the price of the M100 might drop a bit and/or we might know more about the Revolver product (which hopefully will have nice deep earpads from the start).

 

Edit: Also, while I would hate to see this being the case, most people who would really want the DD pads probably already either modded their headphones to their satisfaction or already returned the headphones due to discomfort. So from a purely business point of view, I don't see these pads really bringing in revenue, so they might get neglected even farther. I do have a lot of faith in Val from his posting here on Hi-fi, he seems really dedicated to the customers and passionate about his products.

Afaik, the 1R has less bass quantity than the m50s. (MDR-1R , M50s).

Cnet lol. I almost never take their reviews/recommendations seriously. The best bass headphone on that list is the M-100. The best DJ on that list is M50s. The best circumaural on that list is probably M-100.

Anybody here tested the JDS Labs C5 yet? I would like to know how satisfying the bass boost is on it.

A few people already have there hands on it, I know miceblue over at the M-100 thread does. Just wondering if any fellow bassheads managed to snag one a bit early! beerchug.gif

Thanks for all the replies but I would do an on-site comparison to see if i'm even able

to detect the differences. (Untrained Ears Here!) But thanks for all who helped anyway!

I don't usually trust Cnet's ratings/reviews, but on this one, they may have a point. Most reviews of the MDR-1R comment on its slight emphasis on its mid-bass, which gives it a nice warm sound with a little bass kick. It's probably not a basshead can per se, and are probably as bassy to most people as say the M50.

 

There is probably a distinction between "Best Bass" headphones and "Best Basshead" headphones. I reckon the latter is the realm in which most of us here reside in.

 I've tried the MDR-1R and I agree with you. It's not a bassy headphone at all in terms of quantity, but the bass quality is very good. It's a mid-centric headphone, with possibly the warmest, smoothest lower mids I've ever heard. There is a slight mid bass emphasis while the highs and sub bass are extended but laid back.

Yeah, the Silver/Brown MDR-1R is one of the sexiest headphones I've ever seen. I love the looks of that headphone. Anyone want to transplant XB500 drivers in it? biggrin.gif Both of them are 40mm. 

 

edit: had to throw in a smiley so you guys don't take me too seriously. It would be a fun experiment nonetheless.

Making people think you are serious is the fun part.

Hey guys, can anyone tell me what the difference is between the Audio Technica Pro 700 and the Pro 700MKII? What is different in the MKII? Any improvements on sound, driver size, build quality? There is a difference in price so I'm wondering if the extra cash is warranted. Thanks!

I'm new to HeadFi and to higher quality audio, but I suppose this is the group for me. I have the e11 paired with xb500's.... vibrates my ear lobes, but I have been wanting something with equal or near equal bass that is tighter... Any suggestions? Budget is <$200
Also I might mention I've been looking at the Pro-700mk2 but haven't ever heard a pair
