The JVC HA-S500.. Appreciation, fan thread. - Page 323

post #4831 of 8103

has anyone experiences with some of the other ha-sXXX phones? i wonder if, ha-s900, ha-s750, ha-s700, 650, 600 ans do on would be at least a side grade. maybe different signature, but with other strengths also. is there a comparison between all that ha-sxxx somewhere? i just wonder, what to expect from them.

700.................with stock pads back on/ Rubber-O-Ring thing from my local hardware store, this one is actually slightly smaller in size since they didn't carry the 2-5/8" one cute got, but fits real snug on the lip of the pads nonetheless. If they don't carry the exact size go slightly smaller because the rings can stretch a bit.

 

Hi,

 

I'm new to mods, and don't really understand what size I should take for the the rubber rings: is it thickness 3/16" and inner diameter 2-5/8"?

 

Thanks!

HA-S600 is a step down from the S500.

I was listening S500 with stock pads and ....
Do you guys hear this sharp SSS on this song:
 
Listen between 0:30 and 1:00 . I don't hear it so sharp and annoying with my other phones. Man this sound bad.

tape the vents and stuff the pads. sharpness gets killed by that.

I don't hear it on mine, even at higher volumes. How many hours do you have on yours?

Hey sofa, I downloaded the Focus Driving 14 track, and that's very cool stuff. And yes, the bass in it is pretty cool also!

 

p.s. I'm listening using my E11. I don't need the E12. I don't need the E12. I don't need the E12...

Oh yeah. It will definitely tame after some more burn in. Personally I don't like any of the stuffing mods or taping the vents.
