can anyone compare the hd6000 and the hd 5500 for elerctic music metal rock and pop, and which one is more comfortable ,and in which one ill sweat less?
Tried stuffing my hm5 pads on the pro80 to make them angled. Absolutely did not like it one bit - gives them a mid bass hump and takes focus off mids completely ruined the mids for me - sounded muffled as well. Highs were more rolled off / less prominent but it didn't really help solve the problem of sibilance - if anything the sibilance sounded worse, it was just not as loud.
I have my hm5 pads currently with an electric cable the whole circle under the pad (to keep them away from the ears). It was just an implementation of the "rope mod" with stuff I had lying around, but that sounded much better to me.
EDIT: Took it out and went for about 50% of the amount I used before with much better results. It sounds very similar to the electrical rope mod now but the soundstage may have opened up a bit (have not done a direct comparison - when you expect things to happen it can be very easy to hear them simply because you weren't looking for it before).
