Pretty awesome of you. You'll be the first to do a legit comparison of the mod. The resistors will probably alter volume level, so you may have to adjust when comparing.

Well, good news. I just ordered myself an MA900. Let's see how this goes smily_headphones1.gif

Guys, i want to buy headphone and hard case together, can you tell me which case can fit to this headphone?

post #334 of 2243

Overall this hp is pretty compact. Just about any case would do. Let me think on this a bit and see what I can come up with. 

post #335 of 2243
Yeah, don't let the 70mm drivers and massive LOOKING cups fool you. The cups aren't actually that big (no bigger than typical full sized headphones with 40mm drivers), and as you can probably tell, the headband doesn't take up much space.

so, if you have any case which is fit with this and has a good material tell me, thanks

There is a Slappa case that is pretty popular. It's a hard case and would likely work well. It's a little goofy looking to me. There is a Beyers soft case with a nice foam insert that I'll probably use.

If anyone on here is skilled at modding, but is on the fence as to whether they want to do the mod to their own MA900 headphones, I could send you mine. Then you could do the mod on my pair and keep them for a week or so to do your own comparison, before shipping them back to me. That way you can find out if the mod is worthwhile without having made any lasting changes to your own pair.

 

PM me if you might be interested.

According to some this will "brighten or liven" them up. Also they should be a little harder to drive. I speak only from speculation and have zero actual experience.

Yes, that should work just fine. Or you could just use the golf boxing shorts that is included free in the box.

Well i have this headset and i just went to a silver wire custom cable and  adding some other dampning to the set to try and get the lower end to have some more impact to it..  I need to do the other half of the resistor mod to see if i notice a change in sound quality.  I need to cut the trace on the 220 ohm resistor but in doing so will leave my headset with about a 24 ohm impedance i think?? 

 

I  have also hacked up my siberia steel v2 pleather pads and my ATH700  to mimick the shape, size and width of the originals.

 

The pleathers give more bass impact more in a cave or cavern sound "echo type sound or honky in nature"..

 

The ATH700 pad mod seems to give more bass and keeps the overal character of the original un-moded pads.. A bonus though is a more comfy like ear muffs feel on your ears "very plush lite weight feeling..
