REVIEW: JMoney Audio Genuine Leather earpads for Beyer DT770/880/990 - Page 2

post #16 of 322
I bet these sound good! I noticed awhile ago that extra pad depth is not good for Beyers' sound and these are pretty low-profile from what i see, so the sound must be pretty forward but by no means overly bright or treble-oriented. Appearance and depth-wise those are looking very similar to Equation pads i used on DT 770 2005 with great results. At least they sounded much better than Beyer genuine leather pads with 2005 edition DT 770's...But Equation pads are plain pleather, and those are nice genuines....nice!
The outer "lip" by which the pads are hooked to the cup looking little DIY-ish in a bad way, i hope the final release will look more professional. But the pad itself looks superb...Skylab, we need more and better pics

SkyLab,

You've got the Moon-Audio's DT880?! i am more interested in it, please post the review after you've tried it!

BTW, a simple question, in what condition you take the review? as we know, most part of the world (except Africa, Aust. and New Zealand, etc) is in summer now, will the leather pad make us sweat after using it for a long time.

Also,please let me know how to get the pad. Thanks

very interesting. Cant wait for some more news.
Any idea if they'll be available in multiple colours like the officials?
would love to see a grey leather earpad since I have not seen any for beyer.

Sounds pretty interesting. For ~40$ I might give them a try. Jmoney, feel free to send me sample as well!

I have put my W5000 pads on my DT880 and I am very happy with the result. The leather ATH pads are low profile and I agree with QQQ that this seems to move the sound slightly more forward and a shade or two warmer. I haven't tried the beyer leather pads, but I will probably stay with these low profile W5000. The JMoney pads should be good as they are lower profile than beyer leather. For the record the W5000 pads are slightly larger than the DT880 earcups and the stay on lip is asymetrical, but they do fit and they do stay on, which was a surprise to me.

Would they reduce the harsh treble of the DT770 '05 250 ohm or warm it up at all? If so, I might grab a pair of these...
I will try them on my 770's in the next day or two, depending on my work schedule. But I don't think these are the pads for taming treble, unless your reference is the velours. they will have a little less treble energy than the velour pads, but a little more than with the Beyer leathers.

No, no Moon-Audio DT880's have been offered to me to review, sorry. I wish!

The weather here in Chicago is late spring, so not too hot. But I don't have a problem with sweating and leather pads, so I don't think I will be able to help answer that question

My DT880'2003 got almost out of usage mostly due to too extreme treble. Bass amount is alright, but bass quality not satifying (slow and lacking kick).

I once owned Beyer leather pads (got them from Maier Audio) with perforated inner parts years ago, but I threw them away as I just didn't manage too find a proband where they sounded right (tested DT770'2003, DT880'2003 and DT531). Other padrolling also had just catastrophical results as well.

From these days I got the prejudice that Beyers are almost umoddable, which is obviously not true when looking at what is described here.

BTW, my buddy NoXter developed a closed DT880'2005 which sounds fabulous, but it should be him to introduce that to headfi.

^ Push him a little, I would like to see his mod. A closed DT880 sounds like a recipe for disaster.

Not if it's called a DT770

I have tried genuine Manufaktur leather pads on DT880 and they sounded like cheap boombox with a lot of bloated reverberated bass and loss of details.
If you don't know this, Beyer finally realized that leather pads negatively affect sound of DT880/990 and took them out as an option. You can go to Manufakture site and check it yourself, it's only available for DT770. I believe bizkid posted this information a while ago.
Bottom line, stay with velour, if you want more bass just get yourself 600Ohm version, it has plenty. No, not for you Skylab.
post #26 of 322
actually the leather pads from Manufaktur are not supposed to be used on the DT880. Peter Grooff confirmed it to me by email...it's 770 only.

and a lot more comfy than velours, that's for sure

I already posted Peter's email about the pad difference between 770/880 somewhere, basically the 880 pad has more foam in it.

oh yes, the DT770/600Ω is pure bliss

I don't think that you would find that to be the case with these leather pads. I, too, ended up disliking Beyer leather pads with the 880. These work well though.

A while ago they stocked DT880/990 version of leather pads, it had opening holes in the back and was available as an option on Manufaktur DT880/990.
This is what I had and hated right off the bat, sold them the next day.

well they do wonders on the 770! you should have kept them

from Peter Grooff(beyer headphone PM) :

first of all concerning the ear pads: the DT 770 PRO and DT 880 PRO do indeed differ from eachother. The DT 880 PRO ear pads do only have the velour and foam, while the DT 770 PRO ear pads have some extra foam behind the holes on the inside of the ear pad making the DT 880 PRO ear pads more permeable than the DT 770 PRO ear pads. That’s also the reason for the loss of low-end using the DT 880 PRO ear pads on a DT 770 PRO.

There are no DT 880 leather ear pads and DT 770 leather earpads. I just checked the Manufaktur and you can see there that only the DT 770 can be ordered with genuine leather ear pads, meaning that the genuine leather ear pads are DT 770 ear pads only.

the 880/990 version wont be fit for a 770.
