But why don't you just squeeze the plastic headband to increase clamp pressure? If you keep it squeeze for some times... the previous owner of my last purchased HD250 sent it tightly packed and when I received it the clamp force was strong.
Yes i've tried that. But the plastic headband returns to its natural state quickly. It must have softened over time. I am looking for a metal headband i can attach to it so the clamp is as tight as possible. The Beyer one does work ; in that, it adds more clamp. I added pro beyer headband, and had the metal bit under it. Weight does go up though.
When i push them closer than what they are now, the sound is near perfect. And when i had the sheepskin (hm5 which i squished as much as possible) , it was too thick, but with the cups pressed closer the sound is good, and i prefer the sheepskin over pleather.
They have that vintage German sound like the 48 with more extension in the low end which is gravy for me
I am very happy to have these in my arsenal , just wished Sennheiser made a metal headband!
