    I have never heard of that before, do you have som link for the "mod/fix", so some suggested products, where and how to apply?
  3. kintsaki
    I believe you and I agree your headphone amp is very good . Your speaker amp is not good should not be noisy, however a good speaker amp would only provide a small improvement that would not be worth the money.

    This is a mainly a T60 problem
    discussed and solved in the few pages around here

    @stellarelephant A small note on the V1. I found that mayflowers upgrade foam insert can change the sound depending on what side is facing out. There is the light grey fabric side and the darker foam side. In stock form the fabric side faces the outward, but the low bass feels boosted a bit with the darker foam side facing out. I wish I had a measurement rig to test with, because there is a definite change in bass response.

    I can post pics if needed, but basically:
    Fabric side out: More bright and leaner in the bass.
    Foam side out: Darker, bassier sound.

    Hi, I'm looking for a closed back headphone with good soundstage, satisfactory bass response and overall detail, great comfort and little sound leakage.

    I have no problem at all in resorting to modifications to achieve it.

    Do you think the T40RP meets these criteria? I have read a lot about the huge potential of these Fostex in terms of modifications, but I would like to be sure if you can really achieve significant differences with these mods.

    My current gear:

    -Sennheiser HD58X
    -Sennheiser IE800
    -Koss ESP/95X
    -Audeze iSINE20

    Previous gear:

    -Audeze LCD2C
    -Beyer DT1990
    -Sennheiser HD600
    -KRK KNS-8400
    -Shure SRH1540
    -IMR R1
    -JVC FD01

    Thanks in advance!

    I would say that with modifications, it should be able to meet those needs, as long as you aren't expecting no sound leakage whatsoever. I modded my T50s to be closed, and it works pretty well. You may want alternate pads though, as the default may work well but aren't that comfortable.

    Also, as a fellow Koss ESP/95X owner, these are probably the closest sounding to those (with more bass) of the headphones I have.

    Thanks a lot, I appreciate the comparison with the Koss as it’s my favorite piece of gear at the moment.

    Well I'm sure that with the adequate mods you can have more bass than the Koss...

    Wasn't easy but I am happy with the Focal connectors.


    If anyone is interested in one with a mini xlr fitted with cable soldered on I will ship anywhere in US for $115. It will have the baffle and pivot sections and it cost me about $160+.

    Guessing it would be underpowered on most phones...sounds pretty good out of an LG Vx0 or G7 :wink:

    Once you get it hooked up to an amp with enough clean power, you'll be good to go

    Now the sound is absolutely gorgeous.

    For whose who would be interested, I post some pics of the mod here.
