I’ve bought like 30 pairs of earpads for my T50rp and still can’t find one that sounds right. I need to make my own. Nov 28, 2020

        Nahh! The T50rp is awesome. But earpads have a huge effect on the sound. Most commercially produced headphones experiment with the earpads extensively. I’m not sure how I can do that but I need to figure out a way. I still have a whole bunch of pads coming from AliExpress though maybe I’ll luck out.

        I had a pair of Tx0 modded to Argon. Just tried the BM5 angled pads and it was super tight fit and caused a slight tear...They sound fantastic. I am finally getting all the bass.

        I have every brainwavz pads they make (a lot!) and none of them are perfect but I’m working on accommidating my mod for one of them. I don’t like the angled or regular pleather/leather but hope to find a way to make them work. I have no idea how to have custom pads made but many modders have done it - zmf, mr speakers, etc so there must be a secret I’m not privy to

      Stop making people want to spend money on vintage orthos, the conditions of which can't be easily discerned via eBay listings! D:<

        @E_Schaaf my posts in the he5xx thread weren’t directed at you. I’d love to hear your modded electrodynamic Fostex someday they sound good by your descriptions. But I didn’t sign up for the loaner because I can’t really use full size headphones right now and you’re better off with people who know the competition and market and might buy one. Or write a meaningful review.

        It's ok, learning is collaborative! We are on the same team not loving neo planars (despite the ridiculous amount of effort I put into modding many of them). Maybe it's not fair for me to write off the general tech so quickly. I did love my Maggie 3.6R's when I had them... I'm glad the story aspect of planar design is finally coming forward, I really do value the context you've provided.

        I should have waited and started a thread about it instead of responding to your post. A lot of people say the same I just read your post at a time when I felt like writing about it. Definitely on the same team! I can tell you’ve spent a lot of time trying to fix/improve headphones and I respect that. Someday I’m sure I’ll hear one of your creations.
