Maybe I'll make a sacrifice to the azure gods and just make a pair of earpads entirely out of blu tack. Speaking of which, I recently got a fostex t20v2. The earpads absolutely murder the bass. Weird! Turns out that t20v1 pads sound much, much better. Something about the cone shape of the ear side profile really ruins the seal for most earpads. Your ears have to be VERY close to the driver to get nice sound out of it. I actually tried another larger set of Chinese pads on them, and the distance between my ear and the driver caused some really intense cancelation. It was a really strange sensation, like feeling the sound but not hearing it, sort of like pre 30hz. Actually I solved my problem with both the original pads and the seal problem that they cause. Simply by flipping the earpads inside out, I had something totally new. The result was a very hard to put on, but the way in which the earpad is now offset towards the driver helps with the seal and the unexposed inner side of the pad was in much better condition for wearability. I've tried the same thing with my t20v1, but didn't like the resulting sound. In other news, a nice find!
