The NEW JVC HA-S400. Affordable Carbon Nanotube cans for the masses. - Page 86

Fit is definitely all over the place for these, so good sound can be hit or miss. The biggest issue apart from that is the resonance, which can get out of control with a poor fit.

Can anyone give me impressions on how the s400 sound with WS55 earpads?

They sound hollow and thin with WS55 pads, SJ5 pads are a lot better.

I prefer the akg pads with the s400 and the ws55 with the s500

Has anyone tried the HD25 pads on these?

post #1282 of 1446

Yup. Lots of peeps. You'll just hafta dig thru this and the S500 thread.

I want to change the pads and headband for my jvc ha-s400, because after half an hour of listening I have to take off the headphones because I start to hurt your ears and head. I've seen the velor pad zomo, what do you think?

post #1284 of 1446

Brainwavz HM5 pads will cost you just 17$, and they turn S400 into an "around the ear" headphone.

Don't think anyone reported trying the velour Zomos yet.

For akg K518 zomo velour pads are good ?

It's decent, but if these parameters are very important to you, you should go for S680, which improves both dramatically:
