Therefore, I see the merit of the Audeze pad for sure. The Audeze pad may in fact be better than we can ever get the hifiman pads. I'm buying a pair for sure.

Yup.... I've played with angling mine, as well, and saw the potential.  Placed my order for the LCD pads tonight :)

Thanks for the work and the impressions!

TBI Millenia is an excellent choice to drive the HE-6.

 

Wander over to the "Speaker Amps for Headphones" thread and do a search.  You will find a lot of very good impressions there.

Better pads have improved comfort but you'll have to determine their impact on sound.

 

:thumb: Thanks, Happy Camper. I love it when you and preproman push me off the fence advise me on HE-6 doings. I'm now open to swapping pads :pbut no poodles. May need the weekend to decide which pads - Audez'e vegan or Denon pleather? Where'd y'all get the Denon's??

What price am I looking at for the LCD pads?

post #10236 of 13016
A whopping $80 for some ear muffs :( 
I'd make my own, but I am no Martha Stewart LMAO.

I just ordered some too! Hopefully they get here by Friday. Audeze is only 30 mins away from me.

 

If they sound better than my stock velours, it will the cheapest upgrade I've ever paid for. Sad but true...

Hey, gotta love a cheap upgrade! It's all in the ye of the beholder :)

I'm fixin' to search the Denon AH-D7000 thread to see if I can dig up a source on original pads. But if preproman would fess up, then...:normal_smile :

This "cheap" upgrade of course being enough to buy a new headphone for some.

 

 

 

 

 

For most.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Basically everyone who's not as crazy as we are.

DO IT! But being HE-6 owners we might do a better job than them.
