Updated to the new firmware, haven't had much time to test but mine still hangs after 3 songs of 24/192khz FLAC, but I only have 1 album that is in that bit rate, so not sure what's at fault. Might have to downsample it and see if it works, then i'll know if it's the album or the sample rate.

Found my perfect pad setup for the T50rp Mk3,   Some velours that came with my Superlux HD662 Evo, don't seem available separately though :(   they are soft so compress nicely,   http://www.thomann.de/gb/superlux_hd_662_bk_evo.htm?ref=prod_rel_300852_0   It was a little bright with just the velours, so I put one of the Beyerdynamic foam pieces under the pads and for me they are perfect, great lows that are full, detailed mids and extended...
Indeed basically the same spec as the Audio-Opus Opus #1, but the Opus #1 has 32gb + 2 x microSD, it also has 2.5mm balanced, and 3.5mm SE with optical.   Both priced the same, both have the same output power, could be an interesting comparison. AK may have metal, but the extra microSD slot has got to count for something
 The T1 2nd generation does indeed use synthetic leather, but it has a protein coating. Their reasoning is that from a QC perspective the finish is consistent and also it is not susceptible to degradation as much as leather from oils on the skin etc...So it is not "cheaper" per se, as it is very nice quality material, and also very soft and comfortable. They are actually better built with the detachable cable and improved slider mechanism.
 Just playback wise not SQ wise. Unfortunately you cannot roll back firmware.
 Still love mine, except the latest firmware is worse than the one before... Just waiting for an update. Mine seems to freeze after 4 tracks when playing 24/192 over optical, very annoying.
Messing about with pads last night I found you can stretch the Brainwavz angled pleather pads onto the discs and just about fit them on the TH500rp, it is a bit tight, but can be done.   Sound wise I really like them, I feel like I lost a tiny bit of treble presence (with my tube amp) however out of my Matrix HPA-2C they sound like stock, the sound changes are very minimal at the least.   So consider these pads if you want an upgrade in comfort.
Long story short, I had a free review sample, that I modded with dual mini-XLR that got stolen at CanJam London 2015,   I really liked them and decided to buy another pair, I got them at a discounted price from German Maestro, modified them again with dual mini-XLR's and Brainwavz HM5 earpads.   So here they are up for sale due to lack of usage, as I use IEM's nearly all the time.   These headphones are indestructible, and have a very revealing and balanced sound....
Anyone else having issues with the new firmware. I have had it output no sound, once i finish an album i go to play another and it shows its playing but no sound output. I either have to turn it off and on again, which takes ages, or reload my whole library which is also slow...
