Wow! Sennheiser HD 540 Reference are so good. - Page 88

post #1306 of 1363

Got a pair of HD540 reference II, they sound really great with my Benchmark DAC2 HGC. Highs/soundstage are very well defined, however I wished for more bass and higher sensitivity.

This headphone is not for bassheads for sure but mite do have quite decent bass.

What pads do you use on them?

post #1308 of 1363

I'm used to the HD580/HD600 which have more 'grunt' in the bass area and also have higher sensitivity.

 

The pads are velour (for sure not originals but in good shape), don't know which kind, I just bought the headphones yesterday for a good price. The soundstage and detail continue to impress me as I listened to them all day long.

 

Something like this https://www.amazon.co.uk/Generic-Replacement-Cushions-Sennheiser-HD560II/dp/B00XBO3RJS/ .

Guys, did you find any good, alternative earpads for HD540 ref.? Preferably a velour ones. I've tried a hm5, but round shape would be better. Maybe someone found some kind of "gem" on ebay or somewhere else. I would like the alternative earpads to sound as near as possible to stock hd540 earpads.

Original Hifiman velours come pretty close to stock pads in sound.

I havn't tried out the Focus pads though.

Got a pair of HD540 today. Was expecting the airy sound of my old plastic hd 495 and the wireless sennheiser I used to have, but in flagship style.
It is plastici but the cups have this industrial beauty. Original ear pads are in good shape.
Plugged them in my Erzedich Tilla because of the synergy it has with Sennheiser cans and was blown away.
Great separation , natural bass , dept , great musicallity. And this with Can't Slow Down on airplay.
Sibelius this time.
sounded even better with my Lyr.
now try the ultralineair. The fat plug doesn't seem to fit! Don't want to force it.
Lets try the toxic cable of my Hd650 and see what happens. Sound opens even more but the highs become somewhat hot, still ........rather beautifull. Can't push the modern plugs as far in as the old and they keep falling out so back to the original cable. Slightly more distance less prominent highs. Return of the veil? Not really.
So far for today.
Great experience , lot of fun.

Awesome, glad you like the combination :)

The soundstage it's not affected by the Hifiman velour pads?
post #1318 of 1363

Maybe a little bit, but I don't mind it. I think I prefer hifiman velours to beyerdynamic velours, when it comes to sound. Beyerdynamic velour is more comfortable though.

I'm waiting my HD540 ... I read practically all the thread and I was ready to change the foam
of the pad if necessary! but I think the Hifiman velour will be perfect!
Thanks

Between hifiman and beyer being used on the HD540, there's no competition.

 

The beyer sounds NOTHING like the original HD540 pad, making the bass boomy and treble VERY harsh.
