FINALLY attached the black fabric over the plastic rings under neath my J$ pads. Now they look like they are designed this way.

Oh, with the Jerg mod, do you still use the foam rings?

Is it easy to get the earpads off? How do you do it?

No, the foam rings mess up the sound.

Thanks Jerg! Do you keep them on stock pleather or velour? Mine came with none on (Bought used), what are they even for?

Some people have complaints of their ears touching the drivers because stock pleathers are a bit too shallow, so the hard foam rings are a hack that Hifiman did to resolve that issue. If you have ear-touching-drivers issues then the back-vents mod should be sufficient to resolve it, without messing up the sound.

KK, thanks! Also, how'd you go about removing the grill?

Thanks. I should have them tomorrow and wanted to make sure it wasn't too difficult to get the J$ money pads on. How do the J$ pads compare to the Jergpad mod?

I haven't tried J$ yet, so I can't help you out there... frown.gif

Haven't been following this thread as well as I should have, but did anyone mention this yet? http://btg-audio.com/webstore.htm#!/~/product/category=2609209&id=20207679

 

I know some have DIYed it, but for those who should not ever touch a soldering joint this is a godsend. This + Jergpads + headband +grill mod = end of my HE-400 journey.

Yes I know, but they were "playing" with my money and I told them to buy from Justin....I was a bit mad, but I'm fine by now...

 

Anyway I'm very happy with the HE-400. They are surprisingly comfortable for me. I was wearing them all day (almost literally) the other day and I had absolutely no problem with them.

I like the sound with the pleathers. I was bit afraid of sibilance and tizz, but even though its there, it doesn't bother me. Sibilance on my Fidelio X1 was much more pronounced, but I still don't know it was faulty or not.

So, now I'm hunting for a better amp and a dac. I was looking at the M&M stack but it would be twice as much when it gets here. I think I'll buy something locally.

I'm planning to do the Jergpad mod soon and might be ordering the velour pads...but I might just end up buying some velour material for it.
