The discovery thread.! NEW sfwalcer's earphone comparo PG 1727. DannyBai multi phone impressions... - Page 1027

The HP700 is an amazing headphone hampered only by slightly uncomfortable earpad and it's long half coil cord which a but bulky for portable use. Sound wise it's extremely good.

Oh and soundstage.

 

 

trouble is right now I have too much stuff, somehow those would fit right in  I think though.

 

What pads did you swap on there?

I swapped in zomo velour pads, but if you have a spare m50 pad or a srh840 pad, those would work to

Also interested-have a pair of Denon 1000, never use them, tried to pawn them off on my daughter when she went to college, she preferred other headphones (AT, I believe), sit around. Have Denon iem's (750, I think), they're pretty nice. I'm also swamped with STUFF at present, but if a few people like them, I'm usually up to try (especially at the price), settling in a bit, though.

Actually you are late to the party. Dweaver as you know started the thread on them a while ago. I have my pair as well. They are excellent cans as you put it and overlooked. I always thought they were better sonically over the M50s. I gave my M50s away. Still have my HP700.

 

I have a feeling these are actually AT cans in disguise as both the HP1000s and HP500s are AT rebranded cans so these should be an AT can of some sort as well. .

These can don't sound good anymore..they sing. My mind is officially blown :L3000:

 


I know the feeling my friend. It is always cool to hear when people discover better sources that match up with better phones. You enjoy your new found discovery, and this my friends is what it is all about!.

My bad HP700 not D

 

Yes I do have more than a few sets of Shure 840 pads and compatible ones here. Thanks for the info will let this percolate.

 

Never did like velour pads much except on the Ultrasone2500. I'm probably crazy but they just seem wrong somehow.

 

What did that do besides comfort? Tone down some highs?

 

BTW what's the time period on these models, At driver seems confirmed for the 1000 and like Dsnuts said the 500, but Fostex was also OEM for their other ones obviously until recently.

 

More I think about this $100 seems more than reasonable, just like to hear it first which I doubt is possible, since everyone has different baselines and comparison scales they judge by.

I must say, even though the cks1000 have a big footprint in they dont stick out that much. comfort-wise they are surprisingly more comfortable than most phones for me, im sure the right tips will make a difference. no complaints here in that department... unless you have a hood.

That got my attention as well!

I think that you really should make some space first. I'll help you out... Just send me over your Nickified TR50P's. Problem solved! :D

Same here actually. They are fairly light, and because they don't need deep insertion, they seem less intrusive and feel quite comfortable (using a cable clip always).

Nick - if you weren't so adverse to velour, I would have mentioned that the HD485 mentioned on the first page of that HP700 thread works wonders. My friend had stuffed in more foam, and tacked on some felt on the stock pads - but the HD485 pads worked far better for my ears.

post #15401 of 26358

I can get over it I'm sure.

 Always on the lookout for new pad options.

 

TY.

post #15402 of 26358

Heck if you want staple some salmon skin over the pads. Anything should work.

 

Actually it's more of a microfibre sleeve thing, but they get pretty fuzzy over time like velours.

Cardboard troll thought it up - so it must be awful. No thanks, I'll never use pantyhose again.
