Does anyone with the k550 think they have a close to perfect amp pairing?

Anyone ever tried this headband on any headphone?

Looks like it could fit pretty much anything, curious about the fit here as the only problem I could see would be the width...

It's working fine with my Headroom Micro Amp. However the Headroom is only my first real headphone amp so I guess time will tell.

try stuffing MORE foam/paper/watever to the rear of the earpads, make it thickerrrrrr...say another two to three cm thicker..

give it a shot...and tell me if u like the sound better. ( leave the front of the pad alone )

So.... the Lawton pads arrived.... the fit is perfect. My ear is completely inside the pads now... now will need to listen to the sound. Will come back later... Stax EP-007 pads should also be a proper fit....

barely making the stretcccch....denon jmoneypadsdeadhorse.gif

post #534 of 1701

oooooooh how much for the Denon pads? 

post #535 of 1701

Ok here are my K550 with the Lawton pads... perfect fit. Sound is probably diferent since now my ears are closer to the driver. Probably not a bad thing. Stax SR-007/EP-007 pads would probably fit well also as these are 50 mm cups as the AD900 and the AD900 fits them well too...... The phones are way more comfortable now and I don't get this sticky mess after 1 minute of use like I used to have with the original pleather pads...

 

Pictures taken with my Galaxy Nexus but seems not bad to show you guys...

these jmoneys are "out of production" ....unless u can find one in the buysell forum. believe i paid 80bucks for a pair 

but as inasafeplace said above, the lawton pads fit too. 

i suspect the maddog alpha should fit too if u stretch it a little. jus a guess.

 

=========

 

just seen the fotos on the lawtonpads, same like my jmoney...its abit of a stretch..maybe half a cm too small..if u look at the edges.

jmoney does look more comfy isnt it..lol.

ok the seal is even better now...like i am in a very good sounding hall...good clarity, good bass..its GOOD.

thats as technical as i can get. haaaa.

Mmmmh I didnt have to stretch the Lawton pads at all, they fit perfectly, just put them and turn it around, it is the EXACT same dimensions as the original K550 pads.... no strech at all..
 

post #538 of 1701

 

the actual leathercups could be slightly bigger ..i know the lips fit.

lawton looks good enough to me, cos i would need to get another pair for my denon/k550. 

post #539 of 1701

You mean that the pads are slighly too big for the K550 right....

post #540 of 1701

i would prefer the pads to have a bigger circumference...say half to one cm bigger.
