Bass reducer EQ on iPhone does it for me, lol.
Seriously

Has anyone tried grado pads to reduce the bass and get more clarity?

I haven't but those are precisely the areas of sound that the HD 414 pads address. Plus, they're yellow.

They're ugly, but if you put them over the stock pads, they sound amazing. It's crazy how much wider the soundstage becomes. You will also prob need a proper amp, as they become harder to hear at low volumes.

They're gorgeous.

I don't think HD414 pads are ugly, quite beautiful actually :D, but PX-100ii really scales well with amp. I'm always surprised of soundstage, details, and Especially bass when I plug them in my desktop headphone amp Taga Harmony THDA-500T. They sound so full-headphone like that I actually don't even use my full size phones too often. PX-100ii rules! :D Btw, while soundstage can't quite match with open full sized phones (obiviously), I feel I'm "connected" better with music on PX100ii. It's a kind of magic, and that is why I love PX100ii so much. It's like when soundstage is too airy and wide, I feel music escapes from me :D, if that makes sense :rolleyes:

They're a lot better headphones for sure, but the Porta Pros are very fun and well worth owning. The PX 100-II are simply incredible though; for the cash, wow. Also built very well; sturdy and smart-looking.

Have to push back on the claim that the PX 100-II comes anywhere near the HD650. I've owned the PX for more than 2 years. It's an enjoyable headphone for a lot of pop music, hip hop and stuff like that. I was playing the featured playlist on Tidal yesterday and everything sounded pretty darn good. They have a smooth, chocolaty sound with a nice soundstage for pop songs. But if you listen to a lot of classical, like I do, then forget it. What sounds smooth & chocolaty with hip hop becomes muddy & congested on orchestral. And while chamber music doesn't sound too bad, some instruments, like the harpsichord, totally lack the sparkle I get on, say, the HD 280.

Greetings! Welcome to the forum. I'm sorry but I fail to see the logic in your post. From the tone at the start of your post I thought you were going to suggest the HD 650 was good at classical (it's not) but you actually go on to use the HD 280 as a comparison. Bizarre.

Thanks for the welcome.

I wonder if there's anything similar to PX100 that's wireless. 

 

I need one for music editing, where I don't want wires tangled up while I lay around with the laptop. Anything out there?

I personally wouldn't use wireless headphones when working with music because of potential problems with latency.

I don't know... I hear them say to new bluetooth tech is so fast, there's hardly any latency.
