And secondly, remove the foam over the drivers... hmm... where do I do that? :) Is there a description anywhere there on the forum? 

I think they will suffice.

 

You can take off the pads then remove the foam like this. http://www.head-fi.org/t/567037/review-superlux-hd668b-they-cost-how-much-foam-mod-more-for-668b-681

Meh, I'm not very satisfied with this can, I'm inclined to sending them back. They just sound... blunt to me.

With any headphone give them about 10h of listening time. If after 10 hours you still don't like the sound then send them back. People mention 50h, 100h and even longer time to burn in. I personally don't think it takes that long to determine if you like a pair of headphones or not. If you have listened to them for 10h and looking for another pair of headphones do you have any idea what you're looking for ?

My problem is that I was hoping to get an airy sounding pair and on that account the HD-330 doesn't offer much. I asked on another forum and they suggested the following types: Takstar 671 or Audio Technica AD500X or the same brand and series, just the 900X model. I'm looking into finding an affordable place for the AD900X, although I've never ordered from abroad and where I live (Hungary) the Audio Technica headphones are very, very expensive (the AD900X is e.g. $500 the cheapest...).

Buying one as used is also an option.

Surprisingly DT-770 and DT-990 pro earpads are totally different sounding. They look like same, but material inside is different. So if one thinks HD-330 have too much bass, put DT-990 pads on.

 

 

Hi. New member here.

 

I have used both EDT770V and EDT990v and it's no surprise to me that you have found them very different. Although they look identical, the materials used, as you say, are very different. The EDT770V uses a much stiffer (denser foam) and even the outer velour is a little harder than the EDT990V. It seems logical that they should sound different, as each was developed to match a specific design or type. EDT990V was created to complement the DT990 and DT880 (Open/Semi-open), and the EDT770V for the DT770 (Closed).Swapping them is not a good idea and it won't produce good results, as I have personally found out.

easy mod for the hd-330 with the dt-770 pads: cover the holes on the inside of the pads with tape. you get more mids
