I have a problem. I bought a pair of theese that was supposed to be missing some screws, but apparently it also lacks some damping material, because the sound is waay to bright. I was wondering if anyone can post pictures of their Aiaiais inside, or just tell me if the vents are covered (the ones around the driver), or is the driver damped any other way. I can play with them, but first I want to get them to original state.

You mean these?

That foam around the driver came glued to it.

Thanks. I tried similar setup and didn't get a result like in the review though. Maybe the foam has different density or there is some more coverage on the holes inside the cup.

Anyway I came up with a very good results by covering most of the vents inside and leaving the ones on your photos open. They sound quite flat, a little bright. The bass is shallow, though it doesn't get deeper on these headphones.

Any news from AIAIAI about the new pads on these headphones ? I am considering buying these cans but I'm a bit worried about the comfort issues...

I can't promise this will work as well for you as i think it did for me, but i absolutely think it's worth a shot.

This is how they look like:

How did you change the pads for the HD 25 ones, simply pop them out ? Did the new pads change the sound quality of the Capital ? Very interesting mod !

looks like i'm having some wiring issues as one of the drivers is cutting in and out. Can't send them back to the mothership since they're out of warranty.

 

Anyone ever take these apart to recable?

Really interested in hearing about any sound changes with the hd25 pads. I had them before, loved the sound, but returned them because I found the pressure on the he top part of my ear too much. Was a shame, because they were perfect for London life. Think I might reorder and try this
