Just a quick thing to mention: SRH940/840 pads fits the V6.

It's really comfy, first of all. The sound changes too. Mids are increased a bit and bass is decreased a tiny bit. The pad I used is SRH940's valour pad.

Cool. From what I gather they should be the comfiest and roomiest pads for the V6. Please feel free to contribute to my thread on velour pads: http://www.head-fi.org/t/655462/oval-velour-replacement-pads-for-v6-ath-m30-shure-srh

Where's the love for the MDR V600's? :P

V6 > V600 imho

 

More neutral, more detailed, more durable.

V6 with SRH940 Pads

I noticed a tear on material on the baffles today when I took the earpad off, strange how it happened as I baby all of my babies, do you think this will affect sound even in the slightest? My gut feeling is no.

I think that bass ports are under that sticker. As long as it's not uncovering one, you'd be fine.

When I looked it had ripped and pulled back, I just stuck it back down but it's a tad loose.

 

Kimvictor, have you tried any other pads? It's a shame the actual size of the v6's cups isn't larger, I'd love to get some LCD-2/SR007 pads on there.

I've been using stock and have had no fit/comfort issues so I never bothered with the DT250/840 pads, but I might give the 840s a go, I've always found them very comfey.

I have the 940's pad, and they are very comfortable.

I just modded my V6. 

 

1. Remove the foam dampers in the drivers: Opens up the sound by a bit.

 

2. Drill a 1mm bass vent. This give much more impactful and punchy bass. It does sacrifice a tiny bit of clarity though. Also, lower mids become more thicker, resulting in a warm/neutral sound. Treble stays more or less the same.

This is with SRH940 earpad.

 

I just did this because I was bored and I bought the V6 to experiment/mess around. I guess after all, the sound signature totally changed. It feels much more open and warm, but it does sacrifice a bit of clarity.

Without a stock pair to A -> B against comparing modifications is really a test of sound memory and expectation bias, I'd get a second pair to properly validate your claims, you might even hit gold. Covering the bass port would probably simulate not having the bass port though.

Hmm. My dad also has a pair of 20 years old V6, so I might just pull that out to A-B it. But the difference was really obvious and noticeable as soon as I did the mod. This is an actual night and day change I'm talking about.
