My ones have the black dust filter. There are a few variations in models and they were actually for old school Beyers......there is no supplied ring, only pad with dust filter....

not the newer ones here......

They just slip over the black rings after a few attempts I got them on.

 

But they won't have the SQ fixing ability of Modulor's Jergpads though......

So the older ones with the dust cover will work as well? As long as I provide the ring?

Yes, if you have 400's then you have a ring they will go on.

Im at work right now, so ill put them up when i get home (I hope I can remmeber it cus after work i got to go to study accountancy). Ill try to give you some efficient feedback on the sort of material and some comprehensive review on them.

I read all the post. I just wanna to say about these headphones. They are power hungry.I triple amp them to get the best sound. I use a fiio e11,fiio Mont blanc and a matrix m-stage at the same time. The sound is awesome,they are fun to listen to. Not sibilant at all. I compare to my kns 8400 which are a smooth sounding phone and the he-400 blows them away.one of the complaints I have is the cable started to break at the point where the plugs go to the phone.(Not a good design).I just used electrical tape to reenforce them. The more POWER the better they sound.POWER POWER POWER. LOL

Now that's what I call taking it to the extreme! beyersmile.png

post #11383 of 18134

I wouldnt say its taking it to the extreme, but i would say its a bad idea. This way you are rising the noise floor a LOT (at least i think so).

 

I actually wanted to get The fiio E12 for these so i can use them on the move relativly close to my Asgard, but its on hold for now as its time to save cash not spend it.

 

Did you test if you have any hearing problems? For me even the Fiio E17 (with a LOT less power than the E12 can make these too loud for listening in some recordings).

post #11384 of 18134

Yeah, using multiple amps doesn't sound...beneficial.  It's one thing to use a dedicated pre-amp before the amp in the chain, but it's definitely not good or necessary to use 2 or more proprietary amps in sequence, I imagine you'll introduce a lot of distortion into the signal that way.  In his case, just the M-Stage alone will give the best sound.

 

Regarding the Beyer pads, I'm fairly certain they all have a removable filter that on standard Beyers you'd just pop in after mounting the pads onto the housing.  It's possible to do this with the HiFiMan mounting rings too, easy to take on and off...but I don't think the thicker material would be beneficial for SQ...time for me to get some more nylon pantyhose tongue.gif

post #11385 of 18134

In addition to the higher noise floor and distortion, you aren't necessarily getting 3x the power either.  It's more like maybe 1.2x the power.  You could sell all 3 of those amps and get something really powerful like one of those audio-gd things and be better off most likely.
