    "Big head, little head?" (?)

    2 headphones?

    If you do that semi-open grille mod well (w/no issues/problems), I think you'll like what you hear.

    Some people with melon heads can’t use certain phones, and others have tiny child-sized heads where phones don’t even fit!

    Case in point - @trellus just sold his X2 because his head was too small for them.

    So yeah, a good fit is just as important as good sound :)

    I like the way you tactfully didn't rise to the bait of my borderline sleazy post!

    I'm a melon head (perhaps even a watermelon head).

    A large head story: when I first started listening to my gorgeous pre-owned but perfect condition ZMF Eikon, I knew they were the largest earcups I'd ever had on. None of it is suspension, frame, swivel, etc. These earcups are all wood & simply massive (wide & deep). So that first night, sitting there in my glory, loving that Eikon sound--and suddenly caught sight of something out of the corner of my right eye. I whipped around to see what was coming up behind me--nothing. It happened again--spooked again. Finally I turned up the lights, relaxed my eyes, and could just barely see the outside edge of the right earcup w/my peripheral vision.

    That's how big those earcups are. And it only happens because I have a big head...

    I am new in this forum. I have an audiotechnica m50x, and I´d like to try some open headphone like the grado sr80e, but a cheaper Chinese version if possible. In Amazon Spain de grado sr80e costs 129€. In there any grado like Chinese headphone?.

    thxs for your help.

    The link below should do the trick:

    FYI, the LyxPro HAS-30 is one of 5 or 6 nearly identical "clones" of the MDH9000. I owned an HAS-30, since given to a friend--it looked/sounded identical to my 2 Marantz MPH-2s & Akai Professional X50 w/HAS-30 pads on it. The only differences between all the clones are very minor color/branding things.

    Hi I am looking for a chifi headphone that can replace my audio technica ath-m50x, max budget 200 usd. I only use Iems so I do not know much about headphones, but my prefered sound is harman target/neutral just like my Moondrop KXXS.

    I will however use the headphones for gaming but if it sounds amazing with music then that is good.

    Currently looking at the Blon B8: https://www.amazon.co.uk/BLON-BossH...sr_1_1?keywords=blon+b8&qid=1570449555&sr=8-1

    edit: playing with Fiio M11 or Asus xonar u7

    Can also consider the thieaudio phantom if it goes on sale on 11/11 and if it really is much better than the blon b8/other recommendations.

    i love bass in songs when listening Pop or club music... alternative and country i like generally.
    big head, not litte or not supersized, normal or a bit bigger.
    over ear or on ear doesnt matter actually, just used over ear takstar hd5500 for years. if it is strong, will not be easily broken by my 2 years doughter than i can try on ear.
    using at home.

    So while modding my HAS-30 for a more open back, I realized the shell design's a bit different from the Akai 50X that Slater demos. A 42mm grille won't fit without cutting, and the bevel prevents any sort of press fit, so I'll be gluing in a ~35mm grille instead.

    I happened to have a few of these louvers left over from another project (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00QC2I2KA/ ). The 25mm cylinder can be pulled out with a pair of pliers, leaving me a 35mm vented disc that's just a hair under the flat diameter of the shell once the logo-mounting bump's ground out.

    Currently waiting on the matte black paint to dry on 'em before I remount and share photos.

    All that said, I loved the sound these originally had, but find the newly opened vent to make them too bass-heavy now. I'll re-try the velour pads that came packed with the phones, but I expect that to drop the bass too much (they sounded hollow last time I tried them with the stock shell), so I may go for some Brainwavz round hybrids next.

    My vote is the ISK MDH9000, or one of its many rebrands:

    Akai Professional Project 50X, Stellar Labs HC-5985, Marantz MPH-2, Freeboss MDH9000, LyxPro HAS-30, Neewer NW-9000
