Comfort mod: HD650 headband padding on the Pro 900 - Page 4

post #46 of 71
One KEY thing to watch for - when removing the stock pad, make sure you are careful with the wire that is down in the undercut recess. In my case it wanted to stay with the pad........could have been ugly if I didn't stop pulling.

Had to tuck it back in the recess and finished the Velcro process.

Very good point, I completely forgot to mention that!

Very happy to see this simple mod help people enjoy their cans more! The Ultrasones sound great, now they feel great as well smile.gif

This awesome mod works on the Signature Pro and DJ - slightly different application.  You simply loosen the screws shown below enough to tuck the end of the pad inside, tighten the screws back up and you are done.  Simple...............no velcro needed, no adhesive, nothing.

Very clean mod. But would it not improve comfort to lower weight by completely removing the original headband padding?

You really can't on a Sig Pro or DJ. The addition in weight added is minuscule.

First post.

 

Just wanted to contribute and thank Soren for his info on the beyer headband mod. I found the headband was comfy for a while, but placed to much pressure on the very top of my head. This mod fixes the problem and makes my DT990's a lot more comfy. Also because of the difference in headband thickness, the headset now falls perfectly over my slightly flappy ears. So I pretty much killed 2 birds with 1 stone.

 

Here are some photo's I made: http://imgur.com/a/hYoI3

Sorensiim,

I have now added this pad to my Denon D7000 by using some very thin double stick tape. The Denon headband stock is pretty comfy but this just kicks it up a notch.

Thanks again for the inspiration!

The only (full size) headphones I've had that didn't benefit from this mod is my ATH-AD700 biggrin.gif

 

Thanks for sharing your experience, always good to hear that this simple hack is still helping people! beerchug.gif

Hey, I have the DT 990 PRO 250 ohm, and I almost find everything comfortable except the headband. The headband is decent, but not as comfy like the Velour earpads... Occasionally, for some odd reason, the middle of my head gets a little sore from wearing them for a very long time. I was wondering if someone has modded it to make it more comfy, add some foam, etc... If you guys know of a comfy material that I could possibly add to it, that would be great.

Someone modded his DT770 by slicing into it, removing the stock foam and put the HD650 headband in its place. I think it's the same headband as yours.
