The HFM velour pads are so stiff. The pleathers/jerpads are so much more comfortable.

For any of you considering the Emotiva mini-X a-100 to drive your HE-400's, I thought you might like to see this:

Coming. My Woo Audio headphone stand will be here next week and Im going to take a pic with the HE-500 on the stand on top of the amp powered on. Just have to wait till next week for it. But I figured since there is probably a huge influx of people getting their mini-X a-100 amps from the big Emotiva sale this week, I should get the thread and DIY up now.

Edit: btw the HE-400 aren't too resonant at all.  Have a look at Purrin's CSDs.  About the only thing they really display is a characteristic 'ortho wall' In the upper mids.

 

That's just about exactly the same as how I EQ mine. Sometimes I'll boost the bass up 3 or 4dB when I'm feeling my basshead side but other than that yours is pretty much spot on to what mine looks like.

Got my velour pads today!

 

 

I remember some users have reported that bass improves, but to me though the bass isn't any different.

I wouldn't say that the velours improve the bass. Maybe a little tighter. Not that the bass needs any improvement. :wink:

They did absolutely nothing to the bass to me.  The thing they did improve on was making the midrange more defined and less hollow.

Yea velours didnt do anything for bass for me on either the HE-400 or the HE-500. What they did do was tame the harsh highs a bit of the HE-400 and make them sound more balanced finishing off the highs in the HE-500.
