Be interested to hear from anyone who has the incase sonic and the s500's and can compare them. Recently got these and find them very enjoyable (and comfortable!). I already have the brainwavz hm5's and they came with a spare set of pads, so could be an easy upgrade on the s500's (if anyone is still using those pads )
Yeppp those HM5 pads are still the king of the pad-on-pod mod here. But the million dollar question is which pad would you put under them to get the sound you will love??? LoL
There are so many good options, you just have to know your sound signature preference.
Firstly, you shouldnt talk to that Doc guy. He's not the same wonderful s500 loving guy that we all thought he was. Even changing his avatar isn't going to mask his treason lol!
Secondly, that mod doesn't look so difficult after all! How's it supposed to change the sound again?
LoL, has he been bad mouthing the S500s on other threads now that he has got his other fancy shmancy expensive headphone$$$$s. Care to link me to what he wrote so curious now ahahahaha. Hey doc if you hate your S500s now, I will gladly buy it from you.
Oh by taping the 3 open arch slots on the driver disk, it is supposed to bring back some of the bass that was loss due to changing to the AKG pads. I am sure the bass doesn't hit as hard/ big on your ATH pleathers compared to the stock pads on the S500s. Give it a try WAYNE to see if this will give you more bass on your ATH pleather S500 combo.
