I think that is correct Wayne. I remember that he posted something about it.

Something off topic here: I just bought the QPAD MK-50 with cherry mx brown switches.

 

I'll make it more on-topic: I picked the brown switches because they are less noisy than the blue ones so I can enjoy the HE-400 more!

Ah, a fellow mechakeyboarder...I used to use MX Brown but switched to MX Red in the end - about the same amount of noise but I prefer linear action with no tactile bump.  To further reduce noise, you can check out these: http://www.wasdkeyboards.com/index.php/cherry-mx-rubber-switch-dampeners.html  I can vouch that they work well!

 

Back on topic...

 

Mattpads...you mean the ones made with genuine baby kangaroo leather, hand stitched by the honest, hard-working indigenous peoples of...wherever?  I'll take 2!

Why haven't I listened to Sebastien Teller on HE-400 before now? Great stuff to show off the airiness and energy of these cans.

About the B-stock J$ pads, I would recommend that you try those out. It seems as if Jeremy shipped me B stock pads, and although there's nothing I can do about it, I do have to say that it's not a big deal. On one pad there's a weird imperfection that makes a small ravine on the part of the pad that touches your ear and on the other pad the flap where the plastic ring goes over is off center quite a bit but in the end there's is no sonic difference and at this point I just don't care. Plus, B-stock pads are selling for $32, which is quite cheap.

Do Denon pads fit the HE400? Because you can get some Lawton pads and try them out...

Not $45, but build quality should be better.

Anyone used Denon pads, or was it all Beyer pads?

 I had mentioned earlier, I tried my MarkL modded D2k pads and it was just awful. Objectively horrible. But, damn, they were so much more comfortable!

I recall most people having a bad experience with angled pads on the HE-400.

Looking at my pads, I can see where you're coming from, but they're completely flat in reality.

All the pads since Christmas has been B-stock I think. For instance the one I bought from Jeremy back in early January was B-stock.

I didn't buy the pads from wje as well but gotta say the guy deserves some credit for doing this for the community. Thanks!

Guys, maybe this is a crazy idea, but how about you upload your presets with that electriQ.

 

We could have in 1 month a S**tload of great Eqs!

^^ Agreed. Many thanks to Wayne for kindly taking on that project. I did my part to help him get rig of them. biggrin.gif

The J$ Beyer pads did the trick for me.  Thanks to Wayne for taking on the non-envious role of retailer. atsmile.gif
