The NEW JVC HA-S400. Affordable Carbon Nanotube cans for the masses. - Page 79

LOL! I'm totally satisfied with my budget koss headphones. :) Even if you spend $300 - $600, there's no guarantee you'll get better sound quality. :)

 

I get a weird sense of enjoyment watching you guys running around like chickens with your heads cut off.  blink.gif

I have got s400, not impressed that much, probably should try the 500s.

Me? I have a split personality. Here's my newly mutilated Koss Sportapro's:

 

 

 

 

They sound fantastic. For the $25 CDN that I paid for them, I love them!

 

Which makes me completely laugh at the fool that is me for getting these..

 

 

and these

 

 

Hmm, the strange thing though is that they also sound fantastic (and yes, better than the Sportapro's), and for the money that I paid for them, I love them also!

 

Hmm, maybe Currawong is right, and maybe it all has more to do with how much you personally like your headphones... for whatever reasons matter to you.

DIfferences in sound between S400 with AKG K518DJ and AT WS55 ear pads?

post #1176 of 1432

What is your assessment of the sportapro's before and after the mod? I don't have a drill so I'm likely to put the sportapro drivers on a parts express headband instead.


What are the two models of headphones pictured below the sportapro's?

WS55 made them sound hollow

You must burn them with this :

I was initially disappointed too, after burning it for over 200 hours with music.

honestly, anything but the stock. 

I'm buying a pair of AKG K518, so I'll try the pads on jvc 400 to check if there are improvements

When I first got them, I thought they were not good at all. After doing a mod (p.58 post 869 without covering the three white ports), I think they're excellent for the price.

Much better. The bass is still big, but it's nicely controlled now and no longer boomy. Also, the detail in the mids and treble is brought out more. The sportapro's now are essentially a slightly darker version of the ksc75's (on headband). They don't have quite as much mid/treble detail as the ksc75's, but they have much more bass. Although I think that technically the ksc75's have better SQ, I am finding the modded sportapro's to be as enjoyable (if not more so) to listen to due to the fantastic bass. To me, they sound like the Senn PX100II's but better: the bass is tighter and more controlled (ie much less mid-bass hump and bleeding into the mids, brighter and more detailed mids and treble).

Yes, give that a whirl. I tried it after drilling the holes in the driver covers, but I thought that the sound became a bit more unfocused and that the sportapro drivers benefit from the modded housings. Just like I found that the ksc75's sound better not being in a driver housing.

Those would be the ATH WS99 and the ATH AD900X. Both incredible headphones for the price.

The pads of the HD 25II go well?

I can't find who posted it but I saw someone who put their extra HD25-1 II pads on these.  He said it was a tight fit and took a while to get on.

 

Edit -- Disregard that last part.  I just put mine on in about 5 seconds.  So, yes, they fit perfectly and install easily.  

Edit 2 -- I also just performed the toilet paper mod.  There's a noticeable bass improvement.

ooohhh... Glad someone liked my mod! It works pretty nice with felt and stuff too... Whatever you have that will dampen it the most! wink.gif

So guys after reading here about them

do you think theyre better than AKG k430/450,ATH-Sj55, or any foldable headphones around the 50$ price?
