Very nice. Can you measure their effect on the sound with mics ?

And as mentioned, given a proper structure and size, plastic enclosures can have most of their flaws eliminated.

 

In the end, that's all that matters

:beerchug:

You should hear me bitching about MDF/medite when it comes to speakers and turntables.  I'd take plastic over mdf any day.  But, I prefer not to own either in my audio system.

 

And, good luck fighting the good fight against those who fight against chinese goods.

Lol xD

The worst part is you'd find people recommending MDF for DIY speakers enclosures... at least there won't be anyone actually recommending plastic. Other than for (manufacturing) availability or pricing, or shaping advantages. And, I agree, I'd rather own neither as well. At least if I am looking for any quality priced gears..

 

Once again, another thing I'd rather take otherwise if given the choice. Depends on the make, more so than the country of fabrication. It's just that often people auto-associate Made in China = dollar-store-tier quality. That grinds my gears ;)

If they are better than 003 or Stax pads I'd buy them for my own mod if they were for sale.

What if I will make pads for sale. Would many be interested to purchase? And the asking price is around 25 to 35$ not including shipping , will it be fair enough?

Based on my test in comparison to stock pads and the shure 840 pads, mine has the best seal and it added more body to the sound. Better staging also due to its angled position.

I would charge more than $30 for those. You obviously put a lot of time into them. They look great

What would be the benefits of these pads over the already existing MrSpeakers Alpha pads?

 

I hope a wider opening for the ear (not the depth, but the width).

post #10482 of 10602

I don't know exactly how it will differ compared to Dan's pads. By the way how much is he selling for those alpha pads?

I might consider your suggestion on wider opening.

For the price of Alpha pads,  see https://www.mrspeakers.com/fostex-t50rp-headphone-accessories-comfort-upgrade?product_id=63

 

A wider opening would be great. I do have jumbo ears!

 

What is the material you use for your pads?
