If the Emotiva wasn't so big, I'd get it instead of the Mjolnir. Unfortunately, space is a real concern to me.

bleh decisions decisions, do I stick with Dynamics and go balanced with them, or go with SE Orthos... I guess I could just wait to upgrade to a higher end Balanaced AUdio GD amp that would have enough power

 
although honestly, I don't really need the HE 4, assuming the Beyer T90 is at least in it's class, seeing how it would be easier to drive and hopefully balanced would at laest have the sound stage and imaging of the HE 4
 
still the HE 400 sounds like the right EDM open for me :3 till I can maybe get a LCD 3

The deal would be on razordogaudio.com of course, forgot to include that in the initial post...The LCD-x vegan pads are $80 and the leather ones should cost around the same. I'm pretty sure some have already tried them, they said that they were a bit hard to fit on Hifiman headphones because of the difference in size and that the sound isn't worth the premium considering the HE-400 isn't supposed to be high end in terms of cost anyways.

True enough, still what did the J$ pads cost? either way I'll be content with them I'm sure

You do know that the J$ pads are discontinued right :ph34r:? The only ones in circulation now are second-hand I think.

 

To answer your question, the last B-stock J$ Beyer pads were being sold January~March of this year for around $35~40. I would imagine second-hand J$'s would be around that price, maybe a bit lower.

You should just get a headphone before you even begin to think about pads.  I find this whole thing a bit ridiculous.

post #12867 of 20001

There's these modded pads that are quite popular around here. Have a bunch of holes stuck into them. Made by this eccentric guy. Think the name was Herg. Or Jerry. Honestly, it doesn't matter much. I hear he's a recluse anyways. You could probably make your own. Think he has pictures of them, all you have to do is dial him up if I recall.

part of the fun is trying the different pads. Seeing as I already like my Dt 990 [and have no intereste in pad swapping it] the next decision is to try an HE 400 with it's lovely J$ pads, not to mention I found a buyer already who has stock vel stock Jegs and J$ pads, just waiting on my pay check and building some hype before I buy em :3

Mmm yes I was just saying because it is very noticeable on the HE400.... Some other headphones I can listen to 128-192kbps and although it does not sound great it does not sound unlistenable like on the HE400, I notice a big difference in treble smoothness between for example 192kbps or 256kbps and FLAC on the HE400, also every other part of the sound is better, with FLAC or 320 they sound awesome and with low bitrate or bad mastering they are pretty much horrible...
