Great! Hope you like it!

Vegan on the left, leather on the right.

Very similar, but the vegan maintained a higher amount of treble, if slightly, as I mentioned. That paired with the pad differences, is probably why I felt the vegan version to be slightly less warm with more sparkle. The area between 1khz to just over 2khz has a bigger drop on the leather than the vegan as well... about 4db in the section after 2khz, if I'm reading it correctly.


Any way you could take the photo again in better light? I can't even see the right photo with my crap monitor.

I really like it, I only wish it had a dedicated storage space inside or maybe a zipper pouch on the outside. 

 

There's definitely room on top of the central foam between the headphones so I'm going to look for a decent pouch to velcro on there.

Don't underestimate the inconvience of the dutch border... I had to pay 30 euros of import taxes for the J$ pads, which were 40 usd, and had to wait over a month.

 

The BA200 is terrific.  I'd put it right up there with the GR07, actually.  I've owned both for extensive lengths of time (but sold them both).. though I would have no problem if I had to buy either one again.  There's certain things the BA200 does better (midrange depth & more linear treble) and there's things the GR07 does a little better (bass texturing, speed).. but they're very close in terms of performance, IMO.

Here's a link to the full size of that. Unfortunately I was unable to take a good picture as I was in a big hurry.

Haha cool, thanks for threadjacking for me. The BA200 should also isolate a bit better correct? 

 

Relevant stuff: the J$ pads seem to hurt my head a bit more than the other pads. Clamp is still a bit extreme, and the area above my ears start to hurt badly after wearing them for an hour or two. This might be because I'm a bit sensitive right now due to a bad cold. 

 

Also I've been using my mackie studio monitors more because of the headaches, and going back to the HE-400 is a big improvement in sound quality. I've been searching for two years to find a headphone that's on par with the mackie studio monitors, but the HE-400 just blows them away...

 

I don't know, those monitors almost sound gritty, and unrefined compared to the HE-400s. The midrange is obviously more present in the mackies but it sounds pretty raw, and less clean than with the HE-400.

I've been stricken down with the flu the last few days as well and I too seem to be more sensitive to wearing headphones. After a while I develop headaches, and this is with my super soft plush pleather/jergpad. If only I had a pair of IEMs to fall back on, I refuse to use my brother's iBuds!

There are times when IEM just work better and are more practical than full sized hp's. They won't help with the flu though. Sorry to hear it.

I'd just use speakers.

They say music can cure diseases. You should try it with speakers as suggested above.

I wouldn't say music will cure diseases, but proper choice of music would definitely alleviate some symptoms e.g. headaches / physical aches (which tend to manifest because the person pays too much attention to them), not to mention mood improvement.

Speakers are the best option yes, but also the most inconvenient for me. I'll just lay off the music for a little bit...

Of course I wasn't speaking literally. It's not like there's an Ocarina of time in real life where you play a song and a fairy appears to heal you.
