Edit the post. Click the film icon in the post editor and put the url in there

 

Did you mod the drivers?

 

 

 

 

EDIT:

I just bumped you back a page so I'll embed it 

 

 

Meanwhile....that is so..

 

GHETTO!!!

 

Love it. They hit harder than Beats. I bought the damn things while the beats were around my neck.

Oh, hey HBB, about that list you posted...
The Edition 8 on the list is called "Ruthenium," not "Ruthenheim." Hope I don't come off as too much of a smarty pants, but its been bugging me. However, there are multiple renditions of the ED8; do they sound the same?
post #123 of 8469
Yep. That cup was modded. And, meanwhile, I took them apart last night to mod the other side, and I snapped the connector... Good thing I have a 2 year WalMart replacement plan! I might go and get a new one tonight... And I don't think I'll be taking them apart any more lol. Oh, and why isn't the XB1000 or the SZ1000 on the list???

LOL

It's headphones...I don't take it personal.

Yes the Edition 8's do have different ...um...personalities.

 

I'll change the name. The price to performance is way out of whack but the triple bass_____ <<whatever?? is clear. it amps and can hold pretty tight. I would not buy it but it's not "Hawaiibadboy's favorite cans"  it's just the hardest hitters on 2 distinct low freq intensive tracks. It may be about to fall off the list anyway but if anyone says it doesn't have good bass wasn't throwing hard sub slopes at it. They hit and go low. Too much bass for audiophiles for sure.

 Dude..cool as ****!

I am tempted to mod the 77x in the same manner. Cover magnet/backingplate vent and open two opposing vents.

 

Sorry bout the breakage. Is that test cup the modified one?

 

The XB1000 is loud bass but impact...not on my settings. I'm open for a vid from cb though.

The sz1000?...I can only rank cans I have heard on my test rig. I actually heard the sz1000 playing some J pop but not on my amp. I dunno what they can do. I assume alot with a 55mm sub-woofer...I just have never tested one.

yep that's the modded one. No idea what would happen if 77's get modded that way though. You could try it.

Modded the 77x

57mm drivers...I had to do it!:D

 

Plus using the sz 99.8% of the time made these dispensable.

 

If you own these and cannot afford the sz for now I would recommend this mod. If you want hammers with highs I would rec these cans and this mod

I just added +4dB at 45Hz.  That sounds like a little but these were already hammers...so that's a lot.

 

I will post a vid maybe tomorrow.

They slam MORE after the close up driver and open diaphragm mod???!!?? Awesome. It works on the 77's! Meanwhile, I'll be checking out JVC HA-RX700's because WalMart gave me a gift card since they don't stock the 55's... Maybe ha-rx900's if my parents shell out 20$. They have a 50mm driver, ring bass port (same as 77's and 55's.) 64ohms, 107db/mW, 1,500 mw max power input... Looks good so far. I'll get replacement pads for the 700's if I get those. The 700 pads look crappy. Otherwise, could be a fantastic basshead can with a little eq...

The impact around 70Hz is almost identical to the sz after the mod. The 30-45Hz is better but not the sz level (nothing is so....no biggie)

There are a ton of mods for those 700's so go for it. They got mods for bass and staging and the whole 9 yards. There are some on Head-fi from 2008.

So, did the 77's regain their place?

Well they are the solid 2nd hardest hitters if the list was in order which I guess I will do.

I'm uploading a video now

 

 

I ignored these like an ex girlfriend:(

For 100 bucks you will get nothing better in the slamalicious dept.

They sound better overall after the mod too.

Have you tried the ha-rx700's? I want to know if they are a plausible replacement to the 55's in terms of bass impact.

I heard them but not on an amp. I can give no real opinion. Sorry.

What CAN the cans do??

 

 

Using an inverted/hybrid subtractive eq....they can sometimes do a lot more in the low end

The Pioneer and other DJ headphones can benefit from leaving the lowest which is the highest boosted range on a regular eq and making it zero. (the new top of the ski jump) and minus the sliders down and down and back up. 

 

 

 

If 60Hz and 16K are  0dB/no gain in this image then it's close to what I'm talking about.

Nothing new to many but for getting the most bass while not wrecking the highs and the drivers...this works well on some DJ cans....enough to put em on the list.
