The only thing that keeps me from actually getting around to it is my HD700 gets so much head time, that it's become a little hard to justify buying new toys for the HE400. I love the bass on em, but part of me wonders if I should sell just because they don't get the use they deserve.
Hehe, thats seems true. But in my opinion the he-400s are a very unique pair of headphones, so for me even if I got a much better (more exspensive) and more accurate pair I would still probably save these for movies and gaming. Since the he-400 are incredible for music but also for other uses. Where as I dont think gaming or watching on an hd800 would have enough bass and stuff to make them feel fun. Of course thats just my opinion.
Hehe, thats one of the things that made me not go all out on modding the fear that I will mess somthing up. Ya, for the grill mod you don't have to leave it clear. You can just get a lightersilf/cloth material and attach it to the new grill you make. And that will allow more air though while keeping the dust out.
At $10, I'd be a fool not to try velour pads. Then again, if I'm going to buy anything, I should also consider the FocusPads which aren't that bad a cost at $40.
From the few times I tried different pads these are my thoughts.
The pleather have lots of bass and everything else is horrible lol.
The velours aound great in everything with slightly less bass. But not very comfortable.
The focuspads have great bass like the pleathers but do everything else great aswell. Essentially they are a mix of pleather and velours but way more comfortable than both.
The vegean pads on the other hand are what made the he-400s for me. I tens to enjoy vocal heavy music the problem is that the vocals on the he400s are a little lacking. Anyways long story short the veganpads made the mids and vocals stand out more while keeping everything else great.
So it depends on what you prefer.
Good listening guys.
