Moding JVC HA-S500-Z for over-ear

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hey,

 

I'm about to buy a new gaming PC, and for the sound I'll use the HA-S500-Z headphones.

 

As I understand it, there's a way to mod them so they'll be more comfortable by replacing the earpads with over-ear pads.

The thing is, I'm pretty much a noob as far as headphones are concerned, and I have no idea what ear pads to buy or how easy it would be to install them.

 

From some brief research I found these 2 products:

http://www.ebay.com/bhp/sennheiser-hd-25-ear-pads

 

1, I have no idea which of these to buy, and whether or not any of them match my headphones.

2. What's the difference between these pads?

 

I'm planning on using these headphones both for gaming and for listening to music from my mobile phone on the bus, if that makes any difference.

 

Thanks a lot, Avi.

Originally,my point in buying these headphones was to get cheap quality sound.

 

If I have to spend 20$ on earpads for a 50$ set of earphones, surely I could just get a better over-ear headphones for the 70$ total I was about to spend?

Not really, the JVCs should be (are) just as good as any $100 headphone.
