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

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
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.
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.
this is for the Jergman and Mr. Modulor
just got my code-x..and as u both are the pad-men (and u specifically asked for pics of the pads used) i wanted to show u how the pads look... for more pics go to the code-x page..they look and feel SOFT!! its like u have real calf leather pads on ur ears...not like those hifiman pleather pads...sorry for pic quality..its taken by a simple iphone 4s
