Thanks!

it looks bad imo. pretty sure max134 posted pics earlier in this thread.

 

Thanks up late.  This is http://www.head-fi.org/t/630386/the-audio-technica-w3000anv-thread/840#post_10364555.  And funny thing is that I now realize I had seen them before. :-)

 

Anyhow, it does not look at bad as a I fear.  I'll give it a try... :-)

I wouldn't be rushing to do the earpad mods solely based on the fact that the W3000anv is SO pretty! It may sound a little different/better, but if I have more than a pair of headphones, I'll leave the W3000anv to let it show it's true colours, both sonically and aesthetically.

That's possible, Show.  I have other W's and the pads may end up with some of the other ones.  We shall see... :L3000:

So, I got the alpha pads. :-)

 

Something kinda funny happened.

 

I decided to try them on my W1000 first.  I have two W1000s and thought that trying on one of them would be fun to do A/B and all that.

 

Well, I cannot get myself to take them out. :-)

 

Yeah, I know this will pass.  They don't quite make a positive impact on everything.  But, on all things vocal... OMG!!!  This thing is awesome for that on the W1000!  

 

I will eventually get to W3000...

 

Best,

Walfredo
