LOOOL. I agree hahaha.
It adjusted to me after 3 days.
^^ Weight and too heavy is all relative to the person wearing them really. The he400 is the heaviest hp that I can wear comfortably. Even though the he500 is only moderately heavier, I can't justify the purchase because it becomes uncomfortable after an hour. The lcd2 is even worse. The unfortunate part about that is the lcd2 has my favorite sound signature of anything I've listened to.
I assume you meant the $99 Magni ?
Have you done any swapping comparisons between normal velours and the Beyer pads? How is the 1) comfort change and 2) sound change?
Also, why did you add the foam pads in as well? A quick look on the internet and it seems the Beyer pads already have a dust-protective fabric in the middle.
Man, the Magni is sure tempting. What an unbelievable price. I keep asking myself, "How can I not by this?" I'm fairly sure all my headphones would appreciate the extra juice. But here's the deal: my next headphone amp needs to first and foremost drive the hd800, a notoriously picky headphone. Does anyone here have any idea (based on the technical specifications and/or experience with Schitt products) if this little guy might possibly mate happily with not only the he-500, say, but also the hd800? (The he-400 seems happy with almost anything.) If I asked this question on the hd800 thread I'm sure someone would flame me for such a presumptuous conceit. But I'm hopping folks here will be a little more tolerant. But just in case I get someone's dander up, I'm putting on some flame resistant clothing.
I see. How about pad depth? Could you try to put these vs HFM velour pads side-by-side and compare their relative thicknesses? One issue that arises with certain pads is they aren't thick enough, and people with wider ears tend to touch the drivers which hurts after a while.
Is there any difference between the EDT 990 V and the EDT 990 VB pads other than color? Amazon is selling the VB's for a paltry $32 dollars!
Amazing! This is exactly what I was curious about. Thank you for doing this mod. I personally much preferred the velour material on my DT990s. I'll definitely be doing this mod :)
And black would look a little more suited also.
