That was advise from me 100%.  Ask Ryan if you don't believe me.  :p

OK, got mine installed. Had to use the "chisel" bit of my multitool to pop the clips on. Have not put the sticky tape mod on yet.

 

Sounds a bit more spaced out than the J$ pads. Improved separation but a bit thinner sounding sources as a result. "What's Going On" by Marvin sounds very airy like a live performance. "Yound Blood" by The Naked and Famous is another good demo track. Great growl from the strings on the bass in Radiohead's "These Are My Twisted Words". Don't know how much of that to attribute to the earpads, although I do feel that the bass floor is lower in general. Despite this, not much improvement for my core hip hop collection...

 

And now my flatmate just started vaccuuming so that's the end of the impressions for now :p

Finally got around to completing some Jergpad mods (posted on the first page of this thread) for my HE400's:

 

 

I could only be bothered to do the inner and large middle ring of holes.

 

Didn't do any of the other mods, though of course removed the foam ring.

 

Been listening for a few minutes now and initially I thought I was missing some sounds. Though further listening revels that the sound is more cohesive so what I thought I was missing is just not as exaggerated as before (with velours).

I'm liking it. Thanks Jerg  :)

@jerg Are you still sticking to the angled jergpads. Any negative remarks on the angled mod now that you've had them for a short while? Those photos seem to suggest you also removed the vents as well?

 

 

Cheers

Received my pads yesterday. Did the vent mod and fitted them. They are very comfortable but not had a chance to really listen for an extended period.

Considering what the pads cost to buy they are outstanding value, well done Modulor, really appreciate your efforts.

U know..now my code-x is on his way i am really wondering if the modulor pads would even improve it..i for sure will try the grill mod i had on my he500! Just to see if i can make the code-x even better. biggrin.gif

Based on measurements I've seen for the Code-X, and based on what jerg was trying to achieve with his pads, I don't think the jerg pads are necessary on the Code-X. It already has a very smooth response.

 You have to PM him, but Modular isn't taking any orders right now outside of the previous group buy, I want to get some myself.

They are also worth US$30 for the new pads, then making them yourself ;)

Modulor and Jerg, thank you so much for your work. My pads arrived a couple of days ago. I've been so busy that I've not had chance to give them a proper extended listen, but from what I have heard, I can say without question that these pads have cured the ills I had with these headphones. I am not longer going to sell and am over the moon with my renewed HE400s. I can't thank you enough!

I will be sure to post a review when I get chance.
