Welcome. Quick messages/chats but this area is emptied from time to time so nothing permanent here!!
Mr Trev: Brainwavz only has angled hybrids in oval and they'd probably warp the mounting rings badly Oct 3, 2021 15:54:41 GMT
lobalwarming: No worries, Mr T. if I recall correctly your perceptions were already warped. :P For the better or worse is subject to subjective analysis Oct 4, 2021 22:36:13 GMT *
Mr Trev: Tell me bout it… did you know there was a time that I was into cheap Chinese IEMs? Oct 5, 2021 14:49:04 GMT
lobalwarming: Yes, I knew that time well... time well... wasted. 'cept for the well part. ;-) Oct 5, 2021 21:24:54 GMT
Mr Trev: Indeed. No time for such foolishness now. Too busy stockpiling bacon for the great pork-pocalypse of 2021 Oct 5, 2021 22:03:49 GMT
Mr Trev: Did you also know there isn't a single place in this pitiful country that has Sennheiser earpads (650type) in stock - other than 3rd party ripoff sellers on Amazon Oct 5, 2021 22:05:43 GMT
lobalwarming: I did not know that. It's the not-so great Senn-pad-pocalypse of 2021. Oct 5, 2021 22:35:21 GMT
lobalwarming: oh wait... rippoff? 3 pair available on the Bezos Bizarre: www.amazon.ca/Genuine-Replacement-SENNHEISER-HD650-Headphones/dp/B002B4OKYU/ - that's close to the normal price direct from Senn Oct 5, 2021 22:36:42 GMT *
lobalwarming: $10 cheaper direct from Senn: spares.sennheiser.com/en-ca/catalog/sparepart/050635 - just have to wait a 'few' days Oct 5, 2021 22:50:01 GMT
lobalwarming: Meanwhile... stick some cotton rolls under the pad roll to fluff 'em out a bit. Or just admit you like the free bass boost from worn pads. It's what I do. Except the admitting part Oct 5, 2021 22:51:55 GMT
Mr Trev: "few days". It's said that for at least a couple weeks. I though about Brainwavz since they make adapters for Senn. Reviews say they're 3d printed garbage tho Oct 6, 2021 0:52:14 GMT
Mr Trev: Maybe I should say "to heck with it" and just buy a ATH-R70x. Folks claim they're like 650s, but with proper bass Oct 6, 2021 0:53:47 GMT
lobalwarming: Or... buy from Jeff... $10 more vs many $100s more for the R70x. Not sure they have 'proper' bass - more similar to the 650s than not. And not nearly as smooth up top. Oct 6, 2021 4:49:46 GMT
Mr Trev: IIRC when I was on Headphone Bar's site they had Dekoni pads on sale for the same price as stock Senns. I'd probably go that route before being gouged an extra $10 (honestly, how can foam and velour be worth $60 in the 1st place) Oct 6, 2021 15:06:53 GMT
Mr Trev: I just don't know how well the sound change would go down for me Oct 6, 2021 15:07:15 GMT
lobalwarming: With the supply chain issues... $62 for a little foam and fabric is cheap. BTW - my official Senn pads cost $64 in 2019. And well worth it. ;-) Oct 6, 2021 22:43:08 GMT
lobalwarming: I have the Dekoni Elite Velours for the 650. Gives them a big 'proper' bass boost, so you might like them - didn't at the time, but was my anorexic tonal period. Mood and whims change - pad rolling is almost as much fun as tube rolling. For only more $$$ Oct 6, 2021 22:46:20 GMT
Mr Trev: My X2 fulfills my "bassy" needs, so I don't need to go there. I'm surprised the X2s don't get more love. They seem to straddle the "fun" and "audiophile" lines pretty well IMO Oct 7, 2021 17:21:29 GMT
Mr Trev: One of the guys I chat with on HF strongly prefers the Dekonis over the stock pads. He seems to be the exception though, most impressions I've read aren't too positive. Except for comfort, Dekoni apparent wins that hands down. Oct 7, 2021 17:24:10 GMT
Mr Trev: Happy Turkey Day Lobey - and any other Canadians looking in Oct 11, 2021 15:28:22 GMT
