    Denon AH-7200

    It's not a problem, it'll still stretch to fit to the circle shape. I still preferred the stock pads over them though, but they are nice pads for the money.

    Denon AH-7200

    I had the same issue with the stock D7200 when I first got it. Sounded too congested and had shouty upper-mids/lower-treble. Following zolkis’ suggestion, I opened up the cups and took out the stock dampening material and replaced it with dense Creatology felt + foam material against the flat...

    Yeah you will have to use a little force just slowly fold the pad away and give a slight bend to the ring for it to slip out.

    No plans of dropping by Warsaw anytime in the near future, but I do appreciate the offer! If I happen to find a set of cheaper SR900 pads I'll be sure to give them a shot.

    The Stax Thread III

    Thanks for the clarification. So for my setup, this basically means if I were to leave my powered speakers on with the volume up, music would play through my Stax L300 and my speakers simultaneously. Looks like I'll just have to turn down the volume down on the speakers if I want to listen...

    The Stax Thread III

    Quick question regarding the "parallel out" on the Stax SRM-252S, going from PC > Schiit Modi DAC > SRM-252S > powered bookshelf speakers. If I usually leave my powered speakers on 24/7, will sound come out from both the Stax L300 connected to the SRM-252S AND the powered bookshelf speakers? Or...

    Hope I have the same experience with the G pads on the GH2!

    Wow that's the opposite experience from the previous post. I will just have to experiment myself and see what sounds best to me. I'm hoping I like the G cushion pads the most because that looks like it's the most comfortable for extended listening.

    Grado Fan Club!

    I just ordered it earlier today! Now it's just the waiting game lol. I certainly don't use Grados for EDM, hip-hop, sub-bass type music and I know they don't do well with those genres. I use them for everything rock, indie, acoustic, alternative, metal, jazz, etc. and they have always been a...

    Interesting, well I did mod my SR80i to have more bass by putting a few holes in the venting felt as well as using some felt/dampening material on the back of the driver to tone down some of the treble that may be too extreme at times. Also completely removed the driver and plastic housing and...

    GRADO GH2 - IMPRESSIONS

    I was able to get them new so I will need some time to burn them in. I will definitely post what I think here once I've spent some time comparing the 2 Grados I'll have. :dt880smile:

    Wow surprised to see someone with both. Thanks for the comparison! Which one would you say is more musical and/or natural? What I love about my current SR80i is how "moving" and engaging the music is like I'm in the middle of the music being played live.

    GRADO GH2 - IMPRESSIONS

    That's good to know. I was able to find one and took the plunge for it. Certainly a lot more than my SR80i even with all the mods. Hope it does do everything I love about my modded SR80i's and does them even better! :L3000:

    I see. Hope it's a rare thing. I know what you mean comparing the D7200 to the HD800(S). My HD800 has its uses though, and EQ'ing certainly does wonders for it. :)
