Thanks for the help.

You're welcome!

 

 

Just wanted to let everyone know that I am still continuing to enjoy these headphones. I do have an issue with slight ear discomfort after long study sessions (4-5hrs) with these bad boys on. However, I have noticed that the ear discomfort has gone down a bit after wearing these for the past week or so.

I'm a little nervous about this too. But my guess is it will be the person 15 years from now who buys them will have to worry about that fix.

 I just got Momentums for $79 from an Amazon sale. The build is very good. Their comfort is good but the bass sounds sluggish and sloppy that causes bass bloat, IMO.  I want to clean it up; make it tighter and unveil the mids.

 

Does anyone have tuning suggestions?

 

How are the pads removed?

 

Thanks,

I'm waiting for the first brave soul who takes a tiny drill bit to the cups. It ain't going to be me.

I would imagine that it wouldn't be that difficult to fix. If I had to guess, the two halves that clamp onto the headband are tightened to a certain amount using threads of some type. So, all it would require is to tighten it back up and use some loctite on the threads so they don't back out.

Is the sale over?

I don't know what kind of plastic is used for the cups and baffles. IF it's ABS, Do NOT use Loctite because it melts ABS. I learned this the hard way modifying Fostex T50RP.  Also, don't use "bake to dry" plasticine because it melts ABS, too.

I have a lot of experience modifying orthodynamic headphones but only a little modifying dyamic headphones.

 

What do you think drilling tiny holes in the cups would do?  Doing this with orthos will result in more bass; possibly Boomy Bass Bloat that veils the mids and hides the treble frequencies.

I always learn the most when I do it "the hard way". :D But seriously though, thanks for the heads up. I had no idea that loctite would do that to plastic, is it ABS plastic specifically? I've only ever used loctite for car repairs or where the threads/bolts/etc are metal.

I have used Loctite only on Fostex T50RP, which Is ABS, with disaterous results.  Does Not play nice together.

From the manufacturer:

Thank you for your interest in Henkel products. What you have been told about 242 and other anaerobic (normal) threadlockers is true. They are incompatible with many plastics, including ABS. A better removable threadlocking option is Loctite 425, which is also blue and low-strength, but is cyanoacrylate (super glue) based. So even if you happen to get a little on the ABS, it should surface cure, minimizing the chance for stress cracking. Please contact our Technical Information department at (800) 562-8483 if you'd like to discuss in greater detail.
