Well, I have a bit of mixed feeling about the headphones.
Sound amazing, just the sound signature I love, with Soft yet punchy bass that doesn't overpower the wounder-full mids, highs are good as well.
Build is up to snuff, the clicks on the headband adjustment are just so satisfying. And the wood is a nice touch, as you see they look apart. But why? why the cable isn't detachable? it isn't too long and terminates in a 3.5mm jack, but still non detachable and is a Y split. =[
Comfort, they are light, but the ear-cups are just in the middle where they are too small for over ear and to large to be on ear for me =[
Modding is a breeze, the cups disassemble completely with 4 screws and have plenty space in the cup for other mods (see next point for my mod simple)
All my issues with this headphones are solvable (And yes i solved them already) the pads i replaced with Brainwavz HM5's, and I modded the headphones so they will have 3.5mm mono sockets.
Also looking into testing some ear-cup fillers to play with the sound signature.
I tried the Brainwavz Pads but they were too thick and so they altered the sound a LOT. I need to find thinner pads but I really want to do the removable cable mod just like you did. Did you do it yourself?
Yes i did it myself, it is pretty easy because the strain relief inside the cup is shaped ideally to hold a female 3.5mm socket.
If you find thinner pads do post them here, I just cant overcome the comfort of the Brainwavz Pads. (most my music isn't bass heavy so I don't mind the softer bass for comfort)
It took some custom work but I am using some T70 pads (thinner than DT pads) that seem to work nicely but I think there might be a resonance I didn't notice before? It turned out nicely enough I think. https://imgur.com/a/QL9Eb It's not exactly easy to swap them out either to check the stock pads for the resonance.
The MSR7 pads are perfect size for me... Just barely big enough for my whole ear AND sound very good! Perfect fit on the headphones too
