:D

 

I was wondering if you tape up the vent, it must sound more close in, the sound stage must be smaller and that's not good for classical

HD668 is slightly better at detail and soundstage but it sound much more boring, the EVO is much more enjoyable.

I used plain scotchtape initially...but the windowfoamtape seem to be airier..
And yet add some bass weight...hmmm...liked it at first listen.
Ya..n taping the tophalf is like adding a concert ceiling..vs playing in the openfields of vienna...
LoL...i m just talking rubbish. Giv it a try...n see how u like it.

Hey there,

I am very interested in aquiring a pair of superluxs as they get so many great reviews and are cheap.

I am thinking of ordering from thoman but I have no experience with them. I would like to know if anyone here has bought them from thomann: Did everything go smoothlly? I there any risk of getting a counterfeit good? The store seems to have good reputation but since I am ordering online I would like to know what you guys think first.

thanks in advance.

Thomann is the best shop for music stuff, that i know of. No problems, extremely fast shipping....and if you don't like the products you ordered, you can send them back after testing them, without argueing, problems or whatsoever and you get your money back.

My full recommendation ;D

OK thank you. I'll probably order a pair this week.HOpe it doesn't take much to deliver :PP

So I bought a pair of srh840 earpads after seeing the review that prod posted, and I can't get them to fit! How the hell did you guys even get the srh940s to fit on these?

 

EDIT: Finally got it, with the power of tape holding the other side while I stretch it.

hows the sound with the 840pads?

post #233 of 497

Better clarity and more fun sounding, and they're WAY more comfortable then the stock EVO pads which feel like a brick compared to these.

I have just done my measurement rig and measure my Evo:

 

From the stock EVO

My modded EVO become this, it's extremely flat, i can easily lower treble to make it even flater but i prefer it to have some sparkle and it sounds damn good with my modded O2  :wink_face:

Modded O2? That's interesting.
What kind of mod?

I bias it to work in class A, double the current output and using a shunt regulator instead of batteries/original regulator.

Jeeez...
I hope the NwavGuy is lurking... ;-))

Btw, did you have to add a fan to keep down the heat? (sorry for my ignorance)

Hey are there any mods indisposable to these headphones?

 

I read some pages and read one about recabling because stock cables are terrible. 

I am a complete noob, is this a delicate procedure or simply connecting a different cable?

post #239 of 497

I wouldn't bother recabling the headphones unless your really serious about these headphones, chances are it'll cost more to recable your headphones straight from the can then the actual cans itself.

How deep is the inside of the earcup of these headphones compared to the k550?

I find the earcup of the k550 too shallow and it hurts my ears after a while.

 

Thanks
