I relly love the new memory foam velour HM5 pads. I've even mounted a pair on my sr325is and I enjoy them a lot in this configuration (both sonically and nit the least for the comfort).
Today I've got the idea to try them on my DBV3 modded t50rp and boy am I glad I did. This has to be the single biggest positive change I've done to them since dampening the cups and added cotton when I first got them.
It's like a vail has been lifted of them and treble extension and also clarity is better than with the 840 pads. They also feel more "airy" if that makes sense. This without giving up any of the great bass and mids they have.Overall sound is a bit brighter than before but not overly so in any way. Only drawback is that they now leak a lot more sound but for me that's a ting I can easily live with. I feel as if I've gotten a new pair of cans
Normally velour pads decreases the bass by quite a bit but I haven't noticed this with these ones on any of the cans I've tried them with. It has to be something with that memory foam that work wonders. The pads are only $22 shipped from mp4nation if anyone else would like to try. Needless to say I ordered yet another pair today
I'm a noob on modding compared to a lot of you other guys here but I still wanted to share my findings.
