Since LFF does not reveal his modding techniques (and neither does Dan), how can we reliably know that they are not similarly modded?

+1 I need to spend some money on upgrades biggrin.gif

 

UPD: Oh, I've got a question - does somebody know where to get "compatible" and cool-looking headband cushion for paradox vader - it's strange but it clamps much more on the top of my head than my basic paradox and I hate the way suspension looks - ruins the beautiful look of Vader.

I'm still working on it. Don't want to let the cat out of the bag just yet...

 

I want to make sure that they are sounding the best they can with what I have in mind.

If any of you find one...let me know. Those suspension bands are getting harder to find for me. I feel I'm going to have to find a new solution soon as they really are getting difficult to source for a decent price.

I use this:

 

http://www.amazon.com/Replacement-Leatherette-Universal-Sennheiser-Beyerdynamic/dp/B00862522A

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Headband-Cushion-Comfort-pad-fit-GRADO-SR60-i-SR80-i-SR125-i-SR225-i-Headphones-/190702643884

 

You have to stretch it really hard to fit over the headband but it does fit. I find it very comfortable.

Thanks! I've seen this headband - comfortable one, but those snap locks... :(( The one from Beyer Custom One Pro - https://www.storedj.com.au/products/BEY-C1HB-BLACK looks super sexy to my taste, but I'm not sure it will fit :(( And the price...

I custom made this:

 

1000

 

 

I spent quite awhile custom making headphone cushions and straps, and found my suspension strap to be the best option.  The ones with the snaps aren't nearly as comfortable.  

post #431 of 721

this is the first time i am seeing the hanger head bands..:P

 

as hi end headfones gets heavier n heavier, 

there should be a relook at how the cups are held up/down...

maybe supported from the shoulders,

with a screwclasp to adjust the clamp on the head..lol

I don't know if it would provide enough cushioning but I'm certain that it would fit: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Headphone-protection-sleeve-For-Sennheiser-DENON-Beyerdynami-GRADO-Monster-/221224123289?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&var=&hash=item3381fc3b99

 

The snapping buttons are smaller and hidden. It's fairly extensible so it might be possible to add a layer of foam / cushioning beforehand and wrapping the wool headband around it.

 

I'm loving two on my Grados right now, no burning spots at all with the heavy HP 1000.

This doesn't look good to me - it looks like my grandma sewed this for me ^_^

 

So far Sennheiser foam headband pad looks like the best option for me - http://www.custom-cable.co.uk/sennheiser-hd650-replacement-foam-headband-pad.html  or http://www.custom-cable.co.uk/sennheiser-foam-headband-pad-for-hd600-hd580.html - it looks OK and I suppose will do the job well.
