What's new? Those velour/pleather combos beaver made look nice! 

 

Is anyone still using no mesh? 

I got something new for ya! Give some love to my 'marleypad' thread, it's lacking it :(

It's a pad modification for the velours, by coating it in leather it becomes a velour/jergpad hybrid.

Has anybody else tried this?

It makes them a bit softer yes. But it's enough for me :)

Just tried it and waiting for them to dry up :) 

So while the velours are drying, I decided to try on the stock pads for the first time (I replaced them with velours right away after getting them)

The velours are definitely much better. Hard to explain but the velours makes them much more intimate for me. Now Im curious to give the J$ Beyer Pads a try.

I’m liking the idea of putting these on the headband and attaching it with thin strips of leather that go around the headband and are stitched or velcroed, so it's easily reversible.

Good plan, a few people have done that and were really satisfied with it. 

 

Oh, also, I received that amp that's been on my sig for so long now, and I'm really loving it. I don't have much to compare it with but it looks really nice in person and sounds great.

What about a hard or semi-hard case for these bad boys?

(I'm going to keep pestering you guys about accessories and such for these headphones biggrin.gif.)

Is this official case any good?

I quite like it.

Finally got around to using these with gaming. Played some Fallout: New Vegas with them earlier.

 

Holy christ.

I too like them a lot with NV.
In fact I like them with any game EXCEPT Call of Duty...
These games are not made with neutral headphones in mind...

There's a reason Mad Lust Envy highly recommends the HE-400 as a gaming headphone. It was quite apparent the moment I started testing out some games with it: the positioning needed for competitive play, and the bass response for a cinematic experience.

I have this mod on my he500 and it does wonders..just be carefull with the clip-ons..they tend to break if u use to much pressure..

I always get impressed when i put them on when playing Skyrim.

 

However the sparks skill makes my ears bleed if the volume is too high. The combination of sparkle treble and sparks is not very... pleasant biggrin.gif
