Pleather almost always improves bass response in closed headphones. You are probably going to have more harsh treble as well though. Velour helps to dampen harsh treble. Something you can do to pleather pads to help reduce sibilance is make small holes on the side of the pads that face the headphone.

Did you do that to Folex' pair? How did the sound change with the pleather pads?

I didn't put holes in the pads on his pair. The pleather pads on the Hi-2050 makes them bass cannons and very V-shaped.

Custom grill in the works.

That looks f'ing awesome!

Are you going to spray the silver yoke?
post #2256 of 2263

I don't think so. I think eventually I'm going to buy a powder coating gun and a small oven to use strictly for baking powder coated stuff. At that point in time I might change the color of the yokes, I think painting them would be a bad idea. They go in and out of the headband which would make the paint rub off and fade at that spot. Powder coat is much more durable.

With the rings (that are waiting on paint).

A pair of HPs popped up on Amazon Lightning Deal. Looks familiar.... wink.gifLINK

Semi-confirmation here.

They look pretty sweet! Are you planning on doing before/after measurements to see how the sound is affected by the mods?

post #2260 of 2263

The drivers aren't the stock Hi-2050 drivers so that comparison wouldn't make sense. We have Audio Technica AD2000 drivers in these. I don't have a way to actually measure the sound, I just do it by ear. Someday I hope I have a way to take sound measurements though, that would be pretty awesome.

post #2261 of 2263

Ah! I see. I didn't know you were replacing the drivers as well. I have another question though: where can I find that grill? It's gorgeous!

post #2262 of 2263

You can't! Haha but really, I don't think the public can find this mesh. I have a resource I get it from.

 

I had to cut out a good portion of the inside of these headphones to have this grill, so the process isn't just remove the old grill and install the new, it took some time and dissection. I don't know if I could install it perfectly without cutting the insides up, honestly.

The sliding mechanism is plastic so I don't think you'd have a lot of wear on it. But I know what you mean. 

 

Where did you get the mesh?
