Yamaha hph mt220 thread (Merged) - Page 36

post #526 of 3267

mt220 has a bigger soundstage imho....airier.

pandora has a denser more concentrated sound on each note.

 

both sounds great off an ipad ..macAir stuff. 

 

 

=======

Yamaha HPH-MT220

 

looks like a good price.

Would anyone know if these ear pads would fit the Mt220's by any chance?

I love the combination of velour and pleather! It sounds like a perfect solution for me :)

it will get onto the cups..with a slight bulge at the sides...round vs rectangular. 

Give it a shot..looks good.

The round rubber seams of the hifiman pads are not flexable enough to provide good sealing to the MT220 rectangular cups.

I have 3 pairs of hifiman pads including the focus pads.

you cant use focus pad on mt220 since they glue the pad on the mounting ring

also the inner diameter is smaller compared to original hifiman pad and much smaller than hm5 pad so comfort is much worse 

i bought 2 pairs of focus pad and ended up using memory foam hm5 pad on my he500 =))

Nope,with alpha pad they permanently glue the pad and ring so you cant remove ring

1) Go to your backyard and look for a 600years old corktree..

trim off a choice slice of cork about 6inch x 6inch x 1mm

 

 

2) Take out your MT220, pull off the pads, unscrew the 4 black screws

 

3) Pull open the driver plate to expose the white felt 

 

 

4) pull out the whitefelt..n trace out the same shape onto your corksheet. store away the whitefelt.

 

5) doubleside stick the corkchop onto the cup..

 

(optional...line the wall with excess cork bits..:P)

 

6) replace driverplate, screw back the 4screws..reinstall the pads with magnifyingglass )

 

7) repeat for the other cup.

 

8) pretend that the sound is more organic, more natural, more open... and look satisfied.:P

 

 

 

========

 

wholllllysheeeets ...

that bass.. .more kinetic energy as it bounces off those trampolin-like surface....

whatever jaggeredhighs, sucked in by the ancient 600yr old sap. Incredible..snorrzzz.

just did this mod, holy s*** the bass definitely has more presence , low mid more profound, overall more imitate feel :) it even helped controlling piercing treble

 

i bought a natural cork craft sheet from Daiso for only $2.8 :)) then 5mins to cut 2 pieces

i dont know Japanese but on the instruction note it seem one of the use is for sound tunning :)

here are the images

they did not put the years on product document so i assume it should be much older than 150 years :"> maybe mine came from mixed of 250s and 350 years old

Now that the Philips X2/27's have been released with much awaited improvements to it's design and functionality (plus sick black on black colour scheme). I am excited to get a pair if I discover that I like PC gaming when I eventually build my own PC. It looks like the perfect  multi-purpose headphones for both gaming and easy listening. I don't want to "jump the gun" on this one but these headphones could easily replace my Yamaha MT-220's.
