Once you complete a whole round the lip will pop into the groove easily! i cant upload photos due to newbie restrictions, but i made a short video on youtube:

I sorta discovered it cus i was turning it the other way round and the lip got "caught" in the "cut" and i was wondering why the lip kept going in where i was pushing in and coming out the other side! duh...

Thank you!!! I was using the groove to help keep the pad in place, but never thought of twisting the pad itself... thanks again!

haha... you make it sound like it's a bad thing, though i hope it's not. I just appreciate the bass because all this while i've been on the crappy stock iphone4 ones, and for my laptop i use a Logitech H330 USB headset, cus i only have one audio port, so can't use those headsets with 2 separate audio/mic jacks.

The added bass is a lot for my current s500 setup, but it's not overpowering that would make you nauseous or distort the music, so i'm happy for now! I listen to a variety of music, from hardstyle, trance, hiphop, rnb, jazz, rock, alternative, classical sometimes as well if im in the mood, and it makes it so much better for watching movies with awesome surround sounds, makes the action so much more surreal, alive!

no worries, glad to share tips, though it might have been a trick that the old-timers here have long discovered!

No, no, not a bad thing. Just slightly amazing to me, that's all :)  I found the bass to be too much with the stock pads to the point where it was fatiguing to me. I switched to the ath pleathers, and it's just right. So, seeing that you are enjoying the bass with the stock pads and the vents taped up (which increases the bass even more!) is pretty amazing to me lol!

Has anyone tried opening these cans yet? I might get a HA-S400 to experiment on... what do you think?

S500 is all about Bang for The Buck.

Oh I see. Rick can get away with s500 blasphemy on this thread but when I suggest a headphone might possibly be better than the s500 on here, I get flamed for 3 days straight biggrin.gif

Yeah, well not only did Rick not move the s500 out of #1 spot on his over-achievers list, but he also did not remove it completely off of his top 5 list. You should be grateful that you only got a 3 day flaming sentence LOL! atsmile.gif
