    Inner plastic plates? you mean the black ones under the ear pads?
  2. Gavin C4
    @chenjy9 Yup just like the X00 the plastic behind the ring
  3. chenjy9

    Don't know if you can buy that separately. Might have to ask Fostex about that one.

    Not that I've found. You could hit eBay for a cheap pair of pads and rip the plates out of them I guess. Something tells me you could hit a craft store and manufacture them for far less.

    I'm running my original Denon AH-D2000 pad locking rings with J-Money Lambskin pads designed for the D2000 on my TH-X00 Purplehearts. At least for the Purplehearts I'm liking the pads better than stock....much more comfortable than stock plus a slightly cleaner sound - slight loss in bass presence/impact doesn't matter much at all with the rediculous presence it has stock. Still has insanely exceptional bass/sub-bass with the J-Money pads, but sounds slightly cleaner across the board with a sub-bass extension that seems a little more improved.

    I was under the impression j-money closed shop. Think the alpha pads or ZMF Omni pads would suit this?

    I never liked Alpha Pads on TH-X00 for some reason, but I'm pleasantly surprised by how ZMF Omni Pads improves my TH-X00. Not just more comfortable, but also sounds more controlled and cleaner, while not changing the TH-X00 signature much (it slightly tamed the high though). :)

    These are ~ 8 year old pads I got for the D2000's when you could buy D2000's brand new. The J-money pads are basically very similar to the stock D2000 pads, just a little more internal room for your ears and slightly deeper. The stock D2000 pads are in turn slightly larger and more comfortable than the stock TH-X00 pads.

    The J-Money pads on the TH-X00 (only pertinent pictures I have, really need to take a better ones):

    I also use x00 with zmf omni pads
    And I do like the comfort and sound much more than with stock pads

    The Fostex TH-900 pads work well also...

    Th900's pad is too small. D7000 and LCD-3 's pad is better.

    Does anyone else like their TH-X00 more than the HD600? I feel like after listening to them side by side, the TH-X00 has a much better bass and also sounds less "veiled". I mean like the HD600's vocals sound great but a little bit stuffy like there is a thin sheet of paper separating me from the voices. Maybe they need to be modded?? or could a pure silver cable change this ?
    This was done using the same amp (Schiit Asgard 2) and not a cross-comparison with my Bottlehead Crack I also own. I think the HD600s are also more suited for OTL tube amps so next time I will compare them on their own respective amps (solid state vs. tube).

    The new HD Jimi Hendrix release, Machine Gun, is sounding sweeeeeet on the PH's!

    I prefer the HD650 over HD600, and have varying opinion of which is better, TH-X00 or HD650, dependent on the amplifier.
    Through Jodie, I much prefer the HD650. Through Moon NEO 230HAD, the TH-X00 sings, while the HD650 only sounds moderately good. You mentioned tube - I have a SET not an OTL. Through the DNA Sonett 2, I really cannot chose. Both headphones sound really good.

    I think the Treble on the HD600 is more controlled and neutral than the TH-X00. The X00's treble is too much on the fun side.
