The J$ pads haven't been recommended on here since... damn, since just a little after I got rid of the HE-400, which was quite a while ago.

 

I knew I wanted the HE 400 about the same time I got my FIRST Dt 880, back then when I did my reading, which was... jeeze almost 8 months ago? maybe more... heck it would have to be more, either way I always knew I wanted to try the much recommend HE 400 and J$money pads.  The Jergs where new to me so I ignored them. I'll get to them eventually.

Anyone have images of the Modular jerg pads? I just wanna see them...

 

jerg posted some images in his review of the first batch:

I've been saying this as well, just because they fit and just because they are vintage does NOT make them the better choice.

Wrong. I told you several times before you got the HE-400 to NOT get the J$ and to get the stock/jerg pads. When you continued to pursue the J$, I recommended getting a pair of stock pads as well just in case you decided to mod them. Handmade/Vintage =/= better.

Personally, I don't use my j$ pads at all, just don't really like the sound but that is for HE-500... They have been collecting dust for months.

Considering they make my DT880's sound bassier than the X1's, I can't imagine that they would pair well with the HE-400.

Guys, just let it go. I'm fine with the HE 400 as it is, I'll get the Jegger Pads eventually. I mean seriously, how did we even get on the topic of my decision to get the J$money over the Jegger, and next Thujone stop defending your self. Your taking this all WAY to seriously. No one is accusing you of anything! And lastly, I'm not even going to explain why I chose the J$money pads, and let this be the end of this poitnless dicussion. I'm not selling the J$money Pads.

 

And chances are when I DO get the Jegger Pads, I'll most likely never use the J$money pads again with my HE 400... but you know what... I can at least say I've personally heard both, not to mention I can slap them onto any other full size cans they might work with in the future :3

 

let us MOVE on please!

again with the attacks, let it go man let it GO. 

 

also what the heck let's try all three ...

 

So yea the pleathers sound thicker, not something I like, there is more well decay everywhere. The bass is bigger, not as tight, and the sound stage as a whole sounds... not as clear

 

to stock velours, much clearer. I like the mids better on the Velours, yet teh bass is kinda meh 

 

the J$money pads, mids are simmilar to velours, not as smooth... the bass... OH there is MORE of it than Velour, yet it's not thick like the Pleathers

 

WOW sounds like just what I wanted from the pads, a sound simmilar to velour but with a touch more bass. WIN WIN

lol, I apologize for "attacking" you. Please, use the unlimited resource that is head-fi as you see fit.

post #13359 of 20386

Ohh if you like the dt880, I'd tend to say it is natural to like the j$/HE-400 as I remember there being a resemblance (the j$ pads sound kinda cold-ish and distant with a decent amount of treble going off memory)

But just to weigh in, I've gone through modular's exhaustive photo instructions and the quality of his work is incredible. For $60 he's definitely not trying to make money here; this is a great buy to any considering them.

Yeaper, I do like the Dt 880 and I like the J$money with the HE 400, as it is colder than the Pleathers by far,

 

the J$money He 400 has a deeper tighter bass over the dt 880, with much more low mids, all things that are great for EDM. In every other genre of music I prefer the Dt 880 

 

still though, cold-ish would be the word. and let's not forget I am a treble head q.q 

post #13363 of 20386

Don't talk about those dt880, I can't stand 'em, lol. Funny thing, I have never missed the HE-400 after getting the 500's. For me, the 500's is just a better 'phone.

Interesting, I wouldn't have expected that. Maybe the dampening effects that the J$'s have on dynamics cannot be compared to that of orthos...? They definitely make my dynamic cans sound way bassier. Maybe, as you and davidsh mentioned, they have a more brightening effect with orthos. Not sure my curiosity is high enough to peel off modulor's pads :rolleyes:

Oh I know, I just happend to be the scape goat for this conversation :D and it's ok I'm used to being the Scape Goat 

 

and sadly for normal music my EDM eq works nicely as well :O A drop to the Mid Bass n Low mids, with a bump in 1000-5k hrz, then a dipo at 7-10k then back to 0 in the 11k-20k hrz bump

 

also, the bass is a tighter on the HE 400, a little less Decay, something I like for Reggae, but vocals and guitars suffer on the he 400
