Found thread for he300
I removed the felt. I prefer them this way. In fact i was pretty disappointed by the sound at first. I felt like there was a ... well imagine a blanket over it, dulling the sound and making the mids to prominent. I much prefer the HE-300 without that felt.
Proud new HE 4 member, I've not posted a pic of mine yet. I might to that today actually as my Blog could use a pic
That said, I love the sound of the HE 4 and it's stock Velours, but the stock pads are horribly stiff imo. Anything with the same sound but maybe something to increase the clamp force and a touch softer? I want the same HE 4 sound but with a tighter grip, [comfort with stock velours is sufficent]
I might wait around for the new Velours from Hifiman
and speaking of heaviliy modded cans :3, I'm getting a MonkeyNutz Wood Houseing for my HE 4, along with [hopefully] a Mini XLR 3 Pin Auzde Style connector and Custom made Azude Balanced cable [have to use 4pin Xlr termination at the end though]
So :D I hope to have one of the more more heaviliy modded HE cans ;3, won't be competeing with the HE 5 Code X some one posted at the start of the thread >.> but maybe one day I will!
