I agree, as one of the reasons I got the COPs was because I'd be using my iPhone for listening. I do with they came with black velour pads instead of pleather, though. That's kind of an odd decision for a limited edition version of a set that normally comes with plush velour.

Yah that was kinda of strange. Why take one of your best features and leave it off of the LE model?? Not really sure on that one.

I wonder if Mr. Demon can do a little test of the COP with the velour pads...

 

In terms of:

 

*Overall sound changes

*Comfort / clamp force

*Noise cancellation / leak

 

It will be greatly appreciated! wink_face.gif

Whoa whoa whoa, Mr Demon is my father wink.gif

Actually I did just that. It was a mess...

1st the pads they provide are the only pads that should be used with the COP's. First step of switching them out was a breeze. They came off and put on very easily so that was a positive. First sound impression was the seal was a but gone and the bass all but disappeared. The COP's pleather pads are actually very good. The comfort level as is is top teir IMO. Better than most out there I've tried. The cans themselves are super light weight and pads have great cushion so no they aren't as plush as the velour but that's to be expected. But they did surprise me by how soft and light they were. One of my main issue with a lot of bass head cans (These don't really qualify but are close) is the feel of most pads and the ridiculas clamping force that comes with them. The COP's are actually on the other side of the scale. The Q-Audio M40's, HiFi-780's/580's will squeeze your eyes balls out but you almost forget the COP's are on your head... Well, that is until they bottom out on a low bass note or something along those lines... These were so close to being the ultimate buy for cans under $200 but certain things can't be pushed aside like detail and depth. Hopefully next time they'll put a little bit more time in on the sound vs the look and functionality.

Or just release a better version of the 770's with a 32 ohm rating... Oh that's right... They did wink.gif

Well im no expert, but from the little I've learned here I don't understand why some of you are "putting down" the COP against open or semi-open headphones when in reality open headphones are supposed to sound better by design?

 

We should stick to the DT770 (or other closed) vs COP comparisons. (Q40, UE, LP/LP2) Similar price range of course. wink.gif

Speaking of closed cans, here's the new Superlux HD662EVO. Although this one has more of an AKG type design, I wonder why the DT770 hasn't evolved in to something more modern (but not too flashy) like this. They also have a semi-open version, the HD681EVO.

Not bad at all!! A lot of companies are going the modern route. Some good some horrible... See new Velodyne over ear headphones... But this has to be the most drastic. Superlux was straight outta 1988 and for them to move to this is a bit of a surprise but well thought out. They look clean and light with no frills or gimmicks just a good looking can that isn't trying to scream look at me like a lot of the others players out there. Any idea on cost on when they come out??

Well that's too bad. I have velour pads on the way and was hoping for good comfort without any sacrifice in sound. Not that the stock pads are uncomfortable, but I thought the velour might stay cooler. Oh well, I'll try them out and see for myself. Thanks for your feedback though!

I'd be interested in your second opinion on how the velour pads effect the sound. Thanks.

 

Also, do your ears get sweaty real fast with the pleather pads?

For those that are thinking about the COP's or the M-100's here is a great review of the V-Moda's!

 

http://www.headfonia.com/style-and-power-vmoda-m-100/

 

The guys at Headphonia seem to like the COP's more than the M-100's I haven't read the entire review yet but I'm very curious to see what they think about the most hyped headphones this year.

WOW! That was a great review! It's going to be very depressing to a lot of readers but it was still great to hear. To me it sounds like the M-100's are direct comparisons to those "dreadful rapper headphones (smiles)" and thats not exactly the best group of cans to compare yourself to now is it... There are so many horrible things I can say about that but I'll keep those comments to myself thank you :) I didn't have the highest of hopes for these cans once I saw that they changed from being On ear to Over ear which gave away the plan for these. They listened to the people that said that the M-80's lacked bass and decided to "fix it" and ended up making it compete with the Beats instead of other lets say quality headphones...

Haven't tried yet, I received the pads at the office Friday and didn't have time to swap them out, and as these are my office headphones, I won't see them till Monday. But no at the moment my ears don't get sweaty with the pleather pads, but that may change during warmer months. It gets a little warm because I'm not used to over the ear headphones, but it doesn't bother me much. The pressure from the band at the very top of my head is the most bothersome thing.
