Thanks,

As you already know, the TH600 pads are great but why not keep the Alpha's and give yourself options to play with?  Try them both and see which you prefer.  I have tried Alpha's, Lawton angled and J$ pads on my D5000.  Ended up staying with the Alpha's.

All this talk of exchanging hifiman/th600 pads... since the fostex ones are nice leather i'd like to try a pair on my beyers (currently using hifiman pleathers)... anyone know where I can get a pair of replacement TH600 pads?

I'll probably sale them with the D7000's and buy another pair of Alphas once I get the TH600's

I just have to mention that Kid A may in fact have been created solely for the TH600 :L3000:

Once you try the Alpha Pads, it's hard not to want them on any headphones that they're compatible with! Except for those with big ears which don't fit inside the Alphas.

 

Got these pads on my HE-6 now, the feeling is the best I got.

Do the alphapads add more weight though?

TH600 stock so light and comfy. So regardless I don't think I'd feel the need to change pads at all, unless it improved the sound which I doubt

After a couple of weeks with these my only negative is that I can't use them on my 50-min each way commute or at work, I wish I could listen with them all day! Amazing headphones.

Highly recommend this artist if your into deep electronica. Or even if you just want some test material. http://syntheticepiphany.bandcamp.com
Latest ep with Coma vocals has amazing modulating sub bass that is a hell of an ear massage on th600. It actually was almost starting to hurt my ear by the end of the track, but so clear and deep, wow..

I got the chance to listen to a pair of stax electrostats (not sure what model but owner, a sound producer said he paid 4.5k and the used to rrp for 6k) through a big tube amp a couple of days ago, and while it was defitely impressive - like a warm blanket of sound, perfectly blending all frequencies into one - it didn't make me think any less of the th600. Perhaps for rock and live recorded music you won't do any better than electrostats (not even lcd3/other planars). But horses for courses and for electronic music especially th600 are incredible..

Do you have a picture of the HE-6 with the Alphas?? Very curious how that looks :)

Do you prefer them over your HE-400 for EDM?
Massive EDM and hip hop fan here, just looking for the best option :)

I have both. I'd take the TH600 if I had to choose. The 400 is great but you need EQ to really make it work. The 600 sounds great without any EQ. It's also lighter and more comfortable and it sounds better straight out of a phone, iPod, laptop etc.

If you do EQ, you can bump the sub bass on the 400 and roll the highs off, and it's a unique and fun sound for EDM/hip-hop. I feel like other genres are lacking however, while the 600 is an excellent all rounder.
