t70p wayyyy to large

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

hihi guys i recently got my Beyerdynamic t70s about a week ago, and i've noticed that when i put them on the earcups stick out like sore thumbs.... i mean i look like a total ******** wearing those stuff over my head. is there anyway i can reduce the size of the earpads, or buy a smaller pair of earpads that fit these cans?

They're called full-size headphones for a reason...ph34r.gif

 

If you want something that looks cutesy and dainty, get something that looks cutesy and dainty. Beyerdynamic makes a few models, like the T50p and DT1350, if those aren't pretty enough, there's all sorts of "popular and trendy" headphones available. 

 

And no, I really don't mean to come off as rude here - aesthetics are a priority for some people, more than performance, and that's fine. 

 

If you really want the things to be compact, get in-ears. I like my Denon AH-C751s, there's probably a lot of newer and better options (especially if you're willing to spend $500 on them).

yeahp they're full sized, but compared to other full sized headphones such as the AT pro700mkII they don't look THAT ridiculous. IEM wise i have both the tf10s and the xba-4s so yehp no more in ears for me :D

Personally I don't see the fascination with how a headphone "looks" - it isn't a fashion accessory. If the T70p suit you, sonically, that's what matters. And to answer your question regarding changing the earpads - the T70 series already uses some of the thinnest pads available from Beyerdynamic. The cups cannot be changed or modified without dramatically altering the sound.

obobskivich,

 

I have the T70 for indoor use only.  Do you know where I can send them off to to have fuller / thicker leather pads installed?  In hopes to improve the isolation and bass?

I heard you could just order the gel pads which keeps them a bit thicker and gives a better seal

I would like black leather pads.  I thinks the gel pads are so ugly..

Just buy them from Beyerdynamic, I think they're around $30; you get a number of choices:

No need to send them out. It will probably change the sound, but I'm not sure as to how - probably more bass. 

 

Alternately you can look at the J$ audio leather pads; I think he still makes them.
