And I want the Drivers on mine dampened as well. Might just save up and Ship em off to Mark for a DRIVER only Dampen +LawTon Pads.  Need to see if he'll give me a discount of sorts for only getting half the mod done.

For $99 he does it all and now that I know he recommends damping the wood cups I'd probably do it all. I have his angle pads on my D7000 and I'm about to test the Alphas instead. $100 is steep for his pads. May end up selling mine.

well I hear the Wood Back mod is most noticeable, and he dampens teh entire back of it, I would like to have only the Driver DAmpend and then the wood if need be. STill let us know how much of a differeance it makes :3

 

I did a very  minal DYnamt Dampen to my w1000x and got a nice improvement. Still you can be our guiney pig :3

Got my Alpha pads for my Q40's and man what a combination just WOW.....

post #8060 of 11259

So wow... Law Ton SELLS his Pads+ the Mod [DIY kit] for $129 for both! The pads I think are down to $89. That said my Wii U just hit eBay... totally going to mod the Denons my self. I have no issue cracking them open... as Martin will have re tighten then unto the Chasis that screws to the head band... meaning I shouldn't be able to screw anything up... I modded my W1000x safley so I think I shall b ok :3

 

Either way I pulled a graph of the HE 6 and D2k... LOW AND BEHOLD the D2k and HE 6 both had the SAME reported frequancy response from 10-1000hrz :O that said ofc the HE 6 is MUCH better, it's open ect... ect.... my point is. With sufficent mods and Lawton pads these D2k Cocobolo Wood backs should kick some serious tushy... and said tushy should be kicked very soon!

1 and a half years ago I bought my first "real" headphones, the xb500. I simply wanted as much bass as possible. I paid less than 30€ and yesterday I sold them for almost 50€. I never used them after I listened to open headphones for the first time.
I can't believe how much my taste has changed since then. The xb500's were just horribly bassy and muddy, I hate their sound and consider them total crap, even for their price.
No more bassy headphones for me, that's for sure.

Do yourself a favor and try a quality basshead headphone. Using the XB500 as the reference for bass will do your ears a disservice. Listen to a Denon D2000, Ultrasone Pro900 or M-Audio Q40 for example - your perspective WILL change.

On the open side, the Phillips Fidelio X1 is a Bassy can. Loved it.

Many of us thought the XB500 was the Schiit before we had real phones to compare it to. biggrin.gif

They go on easily, over the edges of the cups and not in that little groove (or at least I never tried to squeeze them in).

Interesting, obviously thought it would be a bit more complicated.  A Q40 with super-comfortable, superior-isolating earpads.  Now that sounds like a fun listen!

Transforms them to an amazing level. I was shocked how good they sounded at first.

+1

"Basshead" for non-audiophiles is just about the farty boom boom. The bassy headphones experienced members talk about on these threads are in a completely different league. Clean and clear boom boom in all its true glory.

What i think is funny is that most of the songs my friends view as bassy dont even have bass... Just a ton of treble.

Woo boost as an example. Good song... But thats not bass lol

Yes, after getting my HE-400 I really started to realize that recording quality matters a lot. There's a good deal of music out there in genres built on bass, like electronica and rap, where there isn't much deep bass in the recording to begin with. Such a shame.
