Yes, but i meant If there was a difference sonically.

Probably.  I've found that different materials, esp. the internal foam, change the acoustics.  How much depends on your ears and the cans to which they're attached.  In the end, there's only one way you're going to find out.  Given that modulor appears to be inactive, you can either make your own, or find someone who will sell you theirs.

 

I have a homemade pair of jergpads.  While almost assuredly not up to modulor's craftmanship, they're not half bad.  If you're interested, we can probably work out a deal.  Bear in mind that were you to make your own pair, it costs a minimum of $30 + shipping for the two older pads, not to mention the hours spent constructing them.  Still, I probably would charge much more than the FocusPads.

 

PM me, if you're interested.

 


 

Just checked head-direct.com.  Unless I missed them, the old velour pads are no longer available.

I'm looking to get into the modding scene, and this one looks promising! I'm considering between doing this or going with the T50RPs and doing the more extensive modding with them. My goal is to model my sound similar to my last pair of headphones which were Shure SRH840s, but hopefully obtaining better detail and a little more subdued treble. Is there much merit in the price jump between the HE400 ($300 on amazon right now) and the T50RPs ($140)? I'm not sure whether orthodynamic drivers tend to improve with price or not, and that essentially is the main lure in stepping up in my mind. Thanks!
