It looks like a bigger size of felt disc. the foam disc will also drop out when the pads are removed coz its not glued. It should be placed in front of your felt disc.

I removed the felt and replaced it with a thin cotton pad.

Hi guys. After fixing my cable problem (both original 1.2m and replacement) now I'm back with my evo. I decided to eq my EVO with neutron player on my Samsung. I've been looking at many frequency response from this thread. I wonder if anybody got FR for original velour pad?

Also can anybody share any good eq? I'm trying to fix 4k dip. From my initial test I can get quite a depth from evo. I wonder anybody else have magic recipe for eq with neutron (since neutron can eq exact frequency) if I missed anything from previous pages feel free to point me to.

Hearing evo again makes me wanna buy amp to pair with my Samsung.
TQ.

ouff.. on the contrary, i raised 2k 2db, 4k 3db. giving back the presence in music.at least with what i heard from my soundcard with sinegen (looking for dips), I later change them accordingly with neutron EQ.

 

Maybe I should try your eq. are you using pleather or velour? Thanks

Velour. It may just be my preference as I don't like emphasis on highs. My music is mostly classical.

 

Edit: Forgot to mention, I did the felt mod so it increased the highs a little. You may wanna try doing the felt mod and leaving the eq flat. Velour pad should have more emphasis on high than pleather pads too.

Hey all, Thought I would share a few of my mods to my favorite headphone! 

First I love this headphone. It has a funky bass to it. Can handle amped power without distortion (unlike my HD598se for example)
Treble and mids are awesome. Easy to power. And the price!!!! WOW. These are my go to headphones at home. Love them better than my HD598's. 
Only con is the funky design....
So I added a spare junked turtle beach headband. And this made the headphone less tall by the extra cushioning on the headband and thus bringing the tubular bands on top closer to my head when worn. I did this by opening one ear side and undoing the Superlux strap and cutting it to make the width a tad smaller so the TB head band could be slipped through. I slipped it through the top portion of the tb headband so I can have all the cushioning on the bottom.

 

 



I wanted more treble from the drive so I removed the small piece of black circular felt material that was on the driver. But left the big circular foam that is between the ear pads and driver.
Speaking of the driver, I was noticing some raised ridges on it and it really bothered my ears as I felt a few of the sharp corners on the design. So I trimmed it with a X-Acto knife... be very careful when you do this. You don't want to cut your fingers!
