[Review] Superlux HD681 EVO - Page 40

post #586 of 589

Received my 2nd pair of evos today. Will always refer to them as 2nd pair in honor of the true and only, 1st pair RIP in pieces.

So what are the must do mods for these?

What I did:

 

Replaced pleather with velour pads

Remove thick foam/felt on top of driver

Foam under the ear pads to make more room for ears

Thin layer of cotton where the thick felt was

Very slightly bent the two metal bars outward to reduce clamping (so the 2 sides don't touch each other) 

 

The sound and comfort has gotten so much better. Also, they get better with burn in too.

1) Done.
2) The one with no adhesive or the one stuck to the actual driver?
3) Between the driver and velour pads?
4) White cotton pads? Eh, I only use them in house anyway.

2) The large removable one

3) Yeah, under the earpads, there's
actually quite a bit of room underneath. This one is not that inportant, I just did it because I don't want my ears touching anything.

4) Apparently "make up applicator pads" work well, but I didn't have any so I used a layer of cotton. Seemed to do the job.

And obviously, try out different mod combinations to see which one your like. The ones I mentioned works well for me and seem to be the most popular ones. There is another more permanent mod too in the forums.
