Did anyone experience the bass becoming boomy and ill-defined after the mod?

Do you realize that you resurrected 2 year old thread?

Continuing the resurrection...

Has anyone tried Remote Audio HN-7506 Replacement Gel-Fill Earpads? I searched the forums but could not find anything.

A source for MDR7506 & V6 replacement pads in Canada are Trew Audio.

Also I picked up Beyerdynamic DT250 Velour ear cushions from the Toronto store today, I want improved isolation over the stock 7506's. They're not listed on their website so just email them to find out if they're in stock, PN EDT250V.

thanks for putting this back up I just modded today. I am not a super audiophile but first thing I noticed was a boomier bass. Sounds less fake~

I live in Mexico and I'm getting my 7506's when my sister comes visiting this October. I called her and made her order the beyer pads, so I'll be doing my mod also. Thanks so much for this post!!.

So, overall, do the Beyer pads make the sound quality better? Worse? I saw one person here saying it added a soundstage. Is that true?

post #43 of 54

Yes, they do add some soundstage, not much, and the bass is improved (more extended). Mainly because the pads are thicker and the distance between your ears and the driver increases.

hi, I just brought a pair of 7506 from the store the OP linked. along with a pair of ear pad as well. it's not the ones the OP brought, it's this one: 

they had 2$ off if I buy them together...

my question is should I put on the aftermarket pads right now or wait for the OEM pad to wear out? and also, this maybe too late of a question, how is this pearstone pad compared to the beyer one the OP brought? (not really audiophile here)

thanks alot

I haven't heard the pearstone pads, but they appear to be just the same.  About using them immediately....the original come off fairly easy, so I guggest you grab a hold of 2 or 3 of your favorite albums, with good quality (192kbps or more) and listen to them with the original pads, get used to the sound signature, and when you have an idea of their sound, switch and play with the others. Sound is subjective, I preffer the velour pads, but ymmv. cheers.
