does the leather pads which supposed to be damping the highs going to be a semi fix for the recessed mids?
if I can some how boost the mids, it will be a lot less fatiguing to my ears because I will be able to listen to them at lower volumes.
any other suggestions?
I do not know about the difference with pads, but I think using an EQ will help. If you are running from a PC, this can be easily done. For that matter, some music players have this feature built in.. If you are playing music directly from a stereo, that might be a bit of a problem.
