T60RP Argon Mod

more_vert
I've been listening to these for about 15 minutes, with a flat EQ. I mention the EQ because I had to double check, these are the first headphones I've heard that don't have me reaching for Peace APO to make adjustments. On my 2018 LCD2's, I upped the bass for more impact, on the Elex I tamed the treble a bit, on the Night Hawks I did too many things to mention. The bass has impact, the width is amazing, and they're far more balanced than what I was expecting, though Ryan at Modhouse did say the T60 version didn't have recessed treble. These have me seriously considering selling my Elex, 58X, and Nighthawks. Now I don't have the regular Argon's to compare these to, so I can't tell you if they're worth the $100 premium over a pair of balanced Argon Mk3's. I can tell you that they compare very well to other headphones in the $400-$500 range that I've heard, and as someone who likes a darker bassy headphone I prefer them to the Elex in every way. And arguably the most important aspect, is that they look amazing and smell of rich African mahogany. Oh, and they're power hungry nature wasn't exaggerated either. Single ended my THX 789 is at 12 O'clock (gain stage 3) on quieter tracks.

My new t60rp arrived today and I am seriously considering having them modified by modhouse. I like the treble the way it is but the bass is too thin for me. Listening to Ocean Eyes by Billie Ellish, the bass does not have the same impact. Can modhouse modification to Argon improve the sound and fix the thin bass on this headphone?
Argons are all about the bass. I think on Ryan's site he says they have less bass than the regular Argons, but in a way that a 600hp car has less HP than a 1000HP car, but still more than almost everything out on the road

ZMF has a pad guide https://www.zmfheadphones.com/pads-and-cables/zmf-oval-earpads and https://www.zmfheadphones.com/zmfpads that states how where they sit and how they change the sound. I'm debating sending my t60s in I just don't want to be without them for so long. :P

I picked up an original barely used MK2 to get converted but I might get the T60RP for this conversion.
