Sh*t happens.wink.gif Ok, I now know for sure that these pads do not have any holes on the inside piece:

From what the Polar Audio toold me I conclude that only the older Beyer pads have holes in them.

The holes are a big deal as far as I remember.

 

The Pilot's Beyer pads had no holes, they sounded like crap, but were leather and easy to get.  That was the first attempt at getting Leather pads.

 

TheLeather Beyer pads with the holes were hard to get, had to order Custom Manufaktor Cans for the most part.

 

Therefore, a niche for J$ was developed, because the Leather with the holes were practically impossible to get from Beyer.

 

If only Jeremy could go to business school where they teach you about customer service...

 

That would be a Win-Win situation.

 

He gets away with this CRAP business attitude because he has ZERO competition.

When the Manufacture from Beyer first began, they made genuine leather pads for the 880 and 990 that had the holes in the backside,and they sounded good. I ordered a bunch of these when I bought my second pair of Manufacture cans. Then for some reason they stopped, and all you could get was the Aviators, which do sound bad (or of course the stock velour).

Anyone tested moon-audio leather pads? Maybe that is the competition to Jeremy's pads? I really like their design for some reason. It definitely looks nice on their Gragon Series Beyers... Suits to the leather headband. Call me an idiot but I always liked nice-looking headphones although it seems to be some kind of contradiction to the head-fi beliefs.

 

I have recently send an email to Drew from Moon-audio about the availability of their leather pads and he said they cost $45 if I can remember. Unfortunately, I have forgoten to ask about those damn 'accoustic' holes

I'll betcha Skylab knows those padz

 

If they don't have holes, make sure you get a money-back return guarantee

I didn't order them.wink.gif I don't have Beyers. However, I am thinking about purchase of the DT880 and I would definitely want to try leather ear pads if I finally decide to buy these cans over e.g. HD600. Therefore I am interested in any information about those beyer leather pads though I don't own beyer cans.

Wow, I'm embarrassed to say I didn't know Moon was making leather pads for Beyers! I will have to try to arrange to try a pair smily_headphones1.gif

Actually I am not sure whether theier ear pads are their own design or it's another variation of original Beyerdynamic-made pads. They look different to any Beyer pads and so I think they are moo-audio design.

post #235 of 322

Somebody should query M-A for some good pix.

post #236 of 322

Well there have been few Dragon Series headphones for sale on FS forums. I have seen there really nice pics of DT990 with these ear pads and they looked different to those that come from Beyer or J$. You can search for them. Here you go:

The second photo makes me doubt there are any holes in these leather pads but who knows?Even those velour ear pads that are shown have some holes so the leather ones hopefully have them either. It would not be so hard to drill your own holes anyway and I believe these leathers look nice enough to buy them and make the holes yourself.:P

Any sign of Jeremy since his own thread got locked? His last post here on head-fi is from over a month ago.

Dunno if this is an automated message i got from Jeremy few weeks ago:

 

"Hi there,

How are you? Thanks for your order for a set of our brand new V2 Beyer pads!

The price is $64.99 USD a set.

I can ship tomorrow, or the day after as we are taking a vacation for the holidays.

Thanks and best regards

JMoney Audio"

 

Didn't have enough cash to spend to order them though and i totally forgot to post this here.redface.gif

post #240 of 322

That's weird. I would have assumed that Jeremy would announce here on head-fi when his v2 Beyer pads would become available.

Think I'll just wait with ordering until he has reported back here.

 

Thanks for posting that message here! Price for one pair went up, apparently wink.gif

oh btw, how did you receive that mail? After placing an order through his order form on the website? Cause the site hasn't even been updated yet. Might cause some confusion to folks when they find out that the actual thing is 10 bucks more expensive than it shows on the site.
