I am scared to take it out, lol. I might buy one extra to see if it's better for my D7k.
It does look like a really solid contender. It has 2 SE outputs for high/low efficiency and 3 pin xlr, and 4 pin xlr. I may end up with that someday. With those power specs, I don't think it would really give the HE-6 justice though.
I'd be pretty interested in what you find with the D7000, and will keep an eye out for any comments.
Same here with the alpha pads.
I've just received my Alpha Dog, with an extra pair of Alphapads.
Those are really comfy, but so thick it is too far from the ears.
Plus it's lot heavier than the D7000' pads.
TH900' might be THE option.
Member jibzilla went with Stax pads. I'm seriously considering getting a pair of them at a price of $160 but that price gives me pause.
I've tried a handful of pads with the D7000, and the stock ones really hit the mark for me.
I experimented with pads quite a bit when I had my D7000 and stock was the way to go.
They are not supposed to seal. It's the lack of a seal that keeps the bass in check.
