How do you change the width of the EQ points/bands? I can't seem to do that, maybe I have another version of electri-q? Mine is the same edition, though.

 

You think the velours sound cupped, they do not to me? The pleathers does, on the other hand. Sounds a bit like being hit by a wall of sound.

Double-click the points in the EQ and a small menu will pop out for you to adjust frequency/amplitude/width.

 

Stock pleathers are more cupped-sounding than velours, but both are, to some degrees (like I said, could be accentuated by the notch, which turned out to be introducing a nasal quality to vocals).

Made PAD-CUP ADHESION ‘SUB-BASS’ MOD today and almost remade my backvent mod.

Bass got tighter that's for sure.

It shouldn't be tighter as far as I am concerned?

I wouldn't say the treble gets better, but midrange will become more open and less muddled. Bass will indeed become tighter by the same logic.

 

Care to snap a photo and show what your progress is on the pads at the moment? This way I can give more succinct / accurate suggestions.

When you say inside, are you talking about the little ring of holes or the bigger holes? (in reference to the picture in OP). My smaller hole ring is quite small, i'm wondering if I should enlarge those, or enlarge the bigger holes more towards the outer direction. I'll post pictures when I get home after work.

 

P.S. Thanks for the mod Jerg, so far I'm finding everything a bit smoother, lacking a bit of crispiness though...( I don't really know what I'm talking about lol)

Tried looking into the sub bass mod. It is actually quite hard, and I ended up discarding the tape I used.

 

Besides, I would like the tape to be more sticky. I am not afraid of not being able to get the tape off, not at all. Might wanna find some other tape brand

Someone mentioned using 2 layers of tapes such as scotch type tape.... not sure if this would help...

I'd say the row of holes indicated by your first pic are the ones that could be worked on a bit more.

Great! Which Hifiman did you do the mod on? Any comments on the modding process / results?

Well, having just done this mod (part I) on my he-400 stock pleathers, I have to admit that I immediately went back to the velours as everything was a definite step back for me, especially lack of bass definition and lack of dynamics in general.  Everything just sounded less alive and clear.  I have quite a small head too, so the thin profile of the modified pleather meant that I felt I wasn't getting a good clamp, more like the headphones just resting on top of my head.  Slightly disappointed after all that effort!  Definitely sticking to the velours.  Thanks for all your efforts though, jerg, it's just not for me.
