Not strange at all considering the mods, especially the Dekoni sheepskin pads.
@Serious Yes, those Dekoni pads really turned HD800 closed sounding with bloated bass. I don't think this headphone is HD800 any more, but I kinda like it this way even it sound a bit off.
Solid sheepskin? Yeah that'll fill the low end out, haha. It's to taste, but at least as far as comfort goes I rather like it.
@Lyander Yep, I admit it sounds too warm now, as I was shocked at beginning. But about comfort, I feel the pads are a bit too thick as they squash my face a bit... OK I have a big head... I'm going to buy some thinner leather pads to compare.
Hmm, thinking that squishing the pads more might actually help? Compress the stuff inside so it's not as wub-wub-wub, but I've not got a large head so limited capacity to compare. Curious whether that'd affect sound a lot now, huh.
Just check the price here, about $15 so it's a must do (I'm in China). I don't like the dust shield cloth inside the Dekoni pads either, as it touches my ears. But those cheap thinner Chinese pads don't have the cloth so they look perfect for me. Btw, I don't really want to squish the Dekoni pads as they use memory foam, don't want to let them memorize the squishing pain.
