For a second I actually thought they were from HiFiMAN. They just fit too well! I've been considering some pleather pads for the HE-300 and those might be it. How much were they?

I would recommend grabbing the real Beyerdynamic leatherette pads, the off-brand ones feel nice but the lip that holds it on the cups is kinda crappy on the off-brand ones.

If you like velours, I highly recommend the AKG Q701 pads.  If you're in the US, they're fairly cheap direct from AKG, and the mod is pretty easy to do.  I use them on my HE-500s.  So much roomier than the stock pads, and better quality foam and velour.  I also like the angle.  Not sure if all the HFMs use the same mounting ring system, but if so, they'll work fine.

What is there to be gained by physically modding the headphones over just using the EQ. . EQ is so much faster and much more able to make chAnges in amounts incremental . So why not. Help me understand .

A big point in modding headphones is major changes. EQ is not nearly as effective (at least in my opionion) as having your gear sound exactly how you want it. As for pads, they don't just change sound but also the look, comfort and isolation.

LMAO.  You actually like bait, don't you fishy fishy fishy fish.  Admit it.  Tasty, ain't it.  Beats dim sum :p

 

Oh there's plenty more where that came from.  And frankly, why not offer the alternative.  Go jump down a Beyer-lover's throat, why don'tcha.

 

*Dangles more bait*

 

Fishing takes patience.  Your HE-500s will be wearing AKG pads and red grills :darthsmile:  Count on it ;)

I honestly think imma go grill-less for now. I don't see much danger and it seems the best option anyways for best SQ. As for pads, I already have jergpads with foam wedge inserts specially made for me by Ryan, so hah.

I'd get jergpads if they had a leather option.

Well, ain't you special ;)

Very special. He sprinkled some of his own magic on it too. Makes them smell and sound 100x better. Hahah anyways, phillyd, you can just do all the steps without the velour top.

Now I think you're just jonesin' for yr girl MJ.

 

Yeah, the jergulor pads aren't that hard to make, though I wouldn't dare put my skills to the test against Ryan's.  I've seen the pix.  Mine suffice, but are relegated to a plastic bag since... well, you know what caused that demotion, don'tcha, Nimzerz.  Let's say it together:

 

AKG Q701 PADS!!!

Having two left hands + physically trying to modify expensive electronic items that -I hope- haven't been designed by fools are imo an unholy combo so I refrain from physical mods.  More power to those who do 'em but there's a lot more potential for screwing things up than by eq'ing the sound via software where the reset button is only a click away.  I'm not even mentioning warrant issues and resale value.
