No, seriously, this sounds awesome.

 

Also, looking at the graph of HD 439... It has less treble then these.

Thats what I wanna hear bigsmile_face.gif.

 

As the the 439's, it was a present for christmas and my headphone so I was fine with them, until I started browsing these forums and curiosity got the best of me

I'm now using a SGS III, and PowerAmp for music playback. Last night I listened to Daft Punk's R.A.M. and it sounded excellent with the S500. I ended up going to sleep late,...but it was worth it.

Can someone post "guide" how to replace standard pads with Senn HD 25 velour pads? Thanks in advance.

It is described somewhere in this thread, but I don't recall exactly where.

Pull the standard pads off, then stretch the hd25-1 II pads over the headphones driver. Put it on exactly the way you removed the stock ones.

There is a slot in the driver plate to slide the back of the pad into, then just keep turning the pad till its on.

I hope I didn't come off sounding like an azz, but it's just as simple as as almost any other HP. I guess to someone new to this it might seem a daunting task.

Yes, the tiny little slot is the key to making it slide right on.

You gotta find the video tutorial that's somewhere in this thread...

busy few weeks with new cans. I was recently enjoying the Pana HTF600's as top dog (after +4 bass on the Fiio E17), a few new IEM's and now these arrive.

Straight out of the box I didn't think they were all that. Bass was bloaty/distorted to my ear, treble was lacking, etc. Sounded average from average sources.

 

A few hours of burn in and I'm pretty pleased. Need more hours... Need nicer pads, but a good set of on-ears. They certainly have potential and the bass level is spot on for my mild basshead needs. They have potential to take top spot but I dont expect they will develop the airyness of the HTF600's. Can't have it all for $50...

^ My exact open box experience, keep these on the burner cuz they will open up like crazy and you'll get that Hi-Def clarity in no time. It's gonna top those HTFs for sure. Happy listenin' and burnin'!!!

I'm hoping so, not as I need a better set of cans, but its freaking awesome finding a great set of cans you expect to keep, then finding something better, A/B'ing and deciding to move up for little cash.

 

Not sure what ill be doing with a drawer full of IEM's and Cans (have to sell of a few), but its great fun to find yourself listening to something that ususaly bores you, only to find the sound now somehow more engaging.

 

Makes me want to list a bunch of songs that slam with these cans, but don't really see the point. Thanks for the recommendation Dsnuts (again) and for updating the OP with links to mods (very helpful, I'm forever reading through hundreds of pages of posts for the few modding bits.

 

No idea how HM5 pads would fit on these (even with the o-ring), but mine are stretched. Thinking I might pull them off and work them around manually (not uncomfortable, but noticeable so far). The HM5 pads are great (on my HTF600's, were on my DT770's (which I have no interest in any more). I don't get how people enjoyed those cans...

 

Gotta love new tech...

 

Just butchered some pads off my HM3's (originally from rubbish Philips Stretch cans) which fit over the existing pads. very comfy, will have to do some trials to see if it negatively affects the sound.

 

They keep up nicely

I've been burning them in for 30 hours now and wow are they really starting to open up.  I am quickly starting to find myself smiling as I listen to these.  If the FXD80's sound like these, I might have to check them out.  I'm starting to think JVC might have the sound signature I enjoy.
