    Beyerdynamic EDT 250 Pads?

    While waiting for my JVC HA-S500s, I have decided to change my Sol Republic - Tracks HD to make them better, as they have a sentimental value to me. My plan was to implement new ear cushions to get them the comfort of a  full-size headphone, and the size of a portable headphone.  ...

    Sol Republic Tracks HD and Beyerdynamic EDT 250 pads?

    I have a pair of Tracks HD that were given to me by my girlfriend, and I truly love the sound I get out of these, but they are rather... uncomfortable. As in, my ears are in pain after extended use. It really sucks.   Now, I won't get rid of them, since they hold some sentimental value...

    The JVC HA-S500 thread.

    Good call, there. My girlfriend pushed me towards the s500s anyway since she also wants a pair, but she wants to test them first. I rather get those than the Sonics at this moment because of it.   As soon as they arrive, I'll post my impressions.   Thank you for your time.

    The JVC HA-S500 thread.

    Well, decided to pick up a pair of these for fun, since I'm growing tired of the sound I'm getting from the Bose pair. As I was getting ready to order, I browsed to Woot, and they had the Incase Sonic headphones for like, $50.   What do you guys think? Buy the S500s or the Incase?

    The JVC HA-S500 thread.

    Hmm... I was going to order the S400s today, but I think I'll hold off now. But no S500s? That kinda sucks. Might as well order those.   Strange that they didn't bring those over. I mean, they seem to have forgotten that those were a hit over here...

    What Are You Listening To Right Now? -New thread, new rules. Please read them.

      So good. So very, very good. Honestly, one of my favorite albums of all time now, except for two tracks. (Track 4 and 6.)   Here's my full review of the CD. (Sorry for the crappy website. I made it in like, 2 minutes.)...

    The JVC HA-S500 thread.

    Now, I've been looking for some new cans to add to the set, so how are the 500s in terms of comfort and portability? How about the sound? Can it be compared to the AT-M50s, or the PortaPros? Thank you for your time.

    Need help choosing sub-$150 portable over or on-ear headphones to be used for recording and listening.

    Well, I stumbled back upon this thread, and I tried most of the recommendations that were available to me:   Sol Republic - Tracks HD: Really liked the sound these gave out, but they were not comfortable after use. (Girlfriend bought these for me anyways. :D)   Audio Technica - M50...

    What are the biggest flaws of your favorite iems?

    Sol Republic - Tracks HD: Uncomfortable to wear after an hour or so, headband pulls my hair.   Koss PortaPro: Feel rather weak, and the cable is really thin.   Bose OE-2: Cable is rather thin and doesn't reach the quality I expected.   Sennheiser HD-201: Cord too long for mobile use...

    Hello, there. After an immense amount of research in sub-$150 headphones, I have found some candidates that seem to go for the kind of listening I need, but I rather have some help from experienced users and headphone enthusiasts. I will be using these headphones to listen to mostly rock...
