post #6991 of 15197

Has anybody done a comparison between, say, the Lawton pads and other non stock pads?

post #6992 of 15197

I have not tried the Lawton pads but I have tried many others from JMoney to various types of Beyerdynamic to the Velour Audeze. IMO the Audeze are the best comfort and sound.

I have tried many others as well and prefer the Audeze pads as well.

A bit interested in the Lawton pads, any direct comparisons with the Audeze velours

would be much appreciated.

Just to make sure Jose, you mean the vegan pads right? What's the difference in sound between those and the HE6 velour? Look forward to your thoughts.

Hi Shahrose,

Yes the vegan pads. IMO they are more comfortable and provide a bigger soundstage also moving it a little bit to the front of you due to the angle. The HE-6 Mk II velour pads are my second favorites.

How do you install these vegan earpads for Hifimans? The same as on LCD with that sticky paper?

post #6998 of 15197

I have the HE velour pads, a pair of J$ denon pads, stock D7K pads and stock HE pads.   I like the HE velour pads the best out of these.

I just used the black plastic rings from the MK II HE-6 ear pads kind of the same way as Denon did with their D_000 series. You can also use the sticky paper rings to secure the black plastic rings more if you are going to leave them permanently. I didn't do that incase I want to rotate pads.

From that list I agree with you. That's why I said the HE-6 Velour MK II are my second choice after the Audeze Vegan. The list of ear pads I tried is:

HE-6 MkI velour, HE-6 Leather MKII, HE-6 Velour MKII, Denon stock, JMoney, Beyerdynamic velour, Beyerdynamic leather, Beyerdynamic Gel and Audeze vegan.

I also have a pair of J$ Beyerdynamic Leather pads.  Although I didn't try them on the HE-6s yet.  Because I like the velours so much.

post #7002 of 15197

No one has tried the Lawton pads with HE-6? sigh..

post #7003 of 15197

I got the pads mostly for comfort and that the pads were making rubbing noises with my glasses. Also it looks so much better and the D7k were one of the most comfy headphones I ever owned. I was originally planning on buying the angled pads but Mark told me about the D7k pads he was selling for much cheaper so gave it a shot. I'm glad I did since those pads are pricey at around $100. I wish hifiman sold those rings separately since when I had the HE500 the ring started to slightly bend after changing it so many times but I guess I could just buy the velour pads since it's cheaper than the leather ones.

I'm in research mode to see if I can adapt a spare tempur-pedic pillow to them.

Thanks for the info Jose. I wonder about the appearance and reliability of this method. Do you feel this workaround looks/feel professional?
