Boy, I just found out about a program called Amarra and it's awesome. Better sounding than iTunes for sure. They have a EQ preset called Treble Reducer and now I love my HE-400 even more. Now I have to buy Amarra after the 15-day trial ends. Sigh. :o

Now we're thinking certain programs surely sound better than other programs.  Pretty good.

Meh  - I like Foobar because it has low processor overhead, plus no annoying library crap that gets corrupt eventually, or doesn't organize half my S***. Lots of the plug-ins are actually useful as well.

The mod requires cutting holes under the pleather pads.

So its not reverseable if i put brand new pads on?

 

Lets say i have bought a pair of jerg mod pads, you dont have to modify that actual headphones do you? meaning i could switch between the jergmod and stock pads, and when i put the stock pads on the hp is back to 100% stock.? right?

Are you talking about reversible to the headphone or the earpads themselves?  Since it's just an earpad mod I don't see how it would affect the headphone.

i was basically asking if its a earpad mod only lol. im not technically inclined to do the mod, but i was possibly gonna buy a he-400 and then buy some jerg modded pads from someone.

You would have to be pretty stupid to mess it up tbh

This is kind of an ignorant comment. A lot of people don't like to attempt things like this because they've never done it before, even when others tell them it's "easy".

Also, not everyone is fond of taking some scissors and tape to a new pair of $400 headphones, despite people online telling them they can't mess them up.

 

Renji: Try the headphones without the mod, it isn't required.

I did not mean it offensively, just meant that it is easy to do... and if you do mess it up... You can just buy a new pair of pads for $10, its not like you are doing anything to the actual headphones, just the pads.

 

I would recommend it, it improves the sound quite a lot.

$20 + shipping actually, for the pleather pads. And if you do the velour top mod then that is another $10 for a pair of velours. So all in all at least $30-odd just in terms of costs for the pads.

 

Add in odds and ends like tapes etc and maybe even some tools, and It'll probably amount to about $40 in material cost for a novice modder.

 

Add in the risk that someone not used to tinkering/modding might screw up and render the pads useless, it suddenly makes sense why Modulor's second batch modded pads for $60 is very attractive to many.

Ok then whatever don't do it I do not mind, was just saying it is easy to do and you are not risking the headphones themselves. Alternatively you could just buy the Jergpads which will be better I expect.

post #13334 of 19962

I busted the seams on one of my pleather pads when I was trying to turn it inside out so there's always the chance of wasting 20ish dollars.
