I don't see any imperfections, they look as good as stock paint-wise.

Yeah, I'm really digging your paint job there.

As far as the HE-300 goes, we're going to tackle it again to fix some of the imperfections in it which you can probably see in the picture.

 

 

 

 


Did you use acrylic enamel paint on them plus a lacquer seal ? Any base coat ? I was going to tackle a pair of Fostex at some point.

The only imperfections I see is that the color isn't 100% straight. Though that can be taken as a joke, I mean that some areas are a bit less pink than others.

Like where the Hifiman logo is supposed to be. It turns less pink at the top.

That may just be the camera? Smartphone cameras tend to do that.

Velours are so 2012 biggrin.gif

post #10358 of 18329

i buttoned up two buttons on each side of my headband pad, just for aesthetics. even if it scrunches a bit, wahtevs. those last middle two though, no friggin way 

 

I think I put velour on when I miss my senny hd595 sound sig but with that planar boost.

 

it has been a WHILE.

 

so 2012, haha. 

 

dont wanna go too off topic, but should i get re-400's? cx-380s are my daily driver IEM's got them for like $30 years ago. 

 

is there same refund policy with hifiman direct? 

 

oh and because I prefer velour material, I will pay anyone who makes nice velour-Jergpads for a pair. my pleather Jergpads are pitifully built. PM me if interested.

wow that velour head clamp was gnarly.

 

back to my poorly constructed but delicious sounding and more comfortable jergs.

 

Still, I would love quality jergpads

post #10361 of 18329

I'd definitely buy a pair of jergpads if anyone was willing to sell one. Don't want to buy another pair of pleathers just to screw it up again.

post #10362 of 18329

I'm surprised Jerg hasn't already started selling them. This is how MOT are born, haha.evil_smiley.gif

post #10363 of 18329

Does anyone know if the pads on the he 400 and the he 500 are the same? I want to try my hand at making some jerg pads. If it goes well I might consider making some to sell.

I initially modded the pads for my own enjoyment, be thankful that I even bothered to write up a guide for you guys rolleyes.gif
