So. I love these things. I don’t want them to change at all… EXCEPT imma change them
So first thing is pads. I tried approx 1 set of pads. The Brainwavz Cooling Gel pads that were just released. They obv FEEL better and block 80% as well as the stock but the issue is the air volume inside the pads and distance change from earhole to driver is messing with the 100% perfect sound and dropping it to like… 80%. Still heads and shoulders above most other closed-backs but not the world enders I want.
ALSO since the pads use that Beyer-dynamic TINY lip to stay in place I can’t seat the pads properly and they are currently stretched over the whole cup. Which is slippery and doesn’t hold it. So I may add some of that Felt Blackout tape around the edge of the cup to grip the pad lips… Giggidy
Going BALANCED is happening because I need to run these portable and more power is needed. Plus QES Reference on them FFFFF… So I need to choose going a 4-pole on the right cup like it is… Reversing the wiring so the wire is Left cup. Or Drilling the left cup and using dual 2.5 or 3.5mm inputs. That way I can use my Ursine Modular cables with it.
I will use this thread to post my videos and updates on how that is going… Chime in on your thoughts/ suggestions if you like. I want to hear them.
