Looking for pads for my he-400i and my th-x00. Should I go this route with the ZMFs, or wait on the dekoni's to drop again? Does anyone have both? What, if anything, are the differences between them?
try th-600/th-900 pads on the he-400i. Changes nothing except for making the subbass of the planar a bit more noticeable, and more comfortable than stock pads too. The only shame is they are like 60 dollars for a pair and pretty delicate pads. I'm pretty sure I'm the only person to have ever tried it too as it isn't mentioned anywhere else, but I am a genius (they fit exact size too).
Okay I just put my th-600 pads onto the he-400i (it's been a while) and the bass levels go up quite a bit more than I thought. I really like it.
Thanks for the info. I put in an order for the ori's and I'm gonna try them out on both, make my choice on where I like them better, and order another set on their site if I can't make up my mind. Thanks again
Tell me if the Oris fit the he-400i well or not. The 400is are kind of weird in the way that they clamp "flat down," and a lot of pads, especially thick ones or ones that are stiff won't mold to your head and they're be an open space behind the ears (hurting sound quality badly). If they actually seal though they probably would sound pretty good. The th-600 pads I have on mine now do seal and I'd say they have hd650 level bass presence now but with deeper extension on both ends of the spectrum. Mids are still forward but less forward than hd650. Honestly it might be the best headphone combo ever.....
Wait are you saying the stock th600 pads to use on the 400i's? Or are you talking about a replacement for the th600 pads sold by ZMF? If the former, where can I get them? If the latter, which pads from where? Have a link possibly?
I'll certainly let you know about the ori's when I get them.
I'm talking about the former. The Stock pads of a th-600/th-900. They have a quality about them that picks up subbass more than any other pad on the market, including leather pads. It's really strange. They fit the 400i with perfect diameter, and turn the 400i into bass cannons that maintain a super smooth mid range and good top range, thanks to the planar design. With a dynamic it would probably change those ranges but it doesn't. Honestly it's f****** fantastic. They are expensive pads though and they begin to flake over time (sound doesn't change). Replacements are on fullcompass (28 dollars per pad).
Thanks a lot for all the info. I'll definitely give it a go, and if I'm not happy I'm sure I can find someone else who would love them. But for under $60 for the pair it's a great deal, even if I find them only half as good as you describe. Thanks again.
tell me how you like it. Again it's my original idea, hehe. Surprised nobody else has done it, it's insanely good.
