A problem was (still is) that when listening to headphones this makes the tone worse and it sounds 'off'.
Fortunately I own the HD688 (and HD687) which don't really need EQ to sound great and 'balanced'. So what I did was make a Kameleon filter that only filters the left ear. The 'missing' treble on the left ear is 'boosted' so that left and right sound the same again. That took about a 12dB boost above 8kHz.
So now I am using the Kameleon and at least the music sound 'correct' again. The longer I listen the lower the 'tinnitus' becomes and sometimes is even almost inaudible when playing music. On other days it is always there but doesn't overpower the music.
I still hope someone can (or should I say is willing to) remove the sticky gunk against my eardrum. Still sort-off expect that when L and R ear are the same again the Tinnitus might go away. At least I hope so.
To be continued. End of Aug I will go see the doc again..
use your EARS to enjoy MUSIC .... NOT as an analyzer
I had the same issue several years ago Frans. My doctor ended up using a waterpick and warm water with some type of detergent or similar to finally get the wax off my eardrum. Took a long time. But when it came off I heard and felt it. The difference in my hearing the next day was dramatic. Hope you can find someone that can safely remove the wax.
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

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

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

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.

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)

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. ;-)

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 $$$

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

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.

Mr Trev: Happy Turkey Day Lobey - and any other Canadians looking in
