Are they the same height (thickness) as the original HE-6 pads?

post #7729 of 14285

The Denons are a little more than a tad bit thicker at the thickest part of the Denon.  and around the same to a tad bit thinner at the thinnest part of the denons.  

 

Did you get that?blink.gif

 

However, they're wayyyy more comfy than the HiFiman pads..

Do they have the same diameter inside and outside as the HiFiman?

I was thinking of trying something along these lines. The Stax pads makes these a lot clearer, and the bass is definitely more transparent, but sibilance is bumped a bit.

That record just says "HE-6 Please!". It's actually one of the main reasons I picked the HE-6 over the LCD-2. It was in my list of test albums.

Good taste Erik....

post #7736 of 14285

How do I get in contact with Mark, to get me a set of pads.

 

For the record, I have been without my cans for over three weeks now. I sent them off to have the connector replaced with a mini xlr connector and sent my cables off to have them redone also. Everything should be back in by the end of next week.

 

While getting the mod done on the cans, I also had them repainted. Pictures to come once they get in.

Ok. Then I will let you be the guinea pig to try the Lawtons out.

 

Looks like the Denon's are actually pleather and the Lawton are the real leather.

That's what I was thinking. I thought somebody already tried them before?

post #7740 of 14285

Someone has already tried the angled pads with the HE6 but I can't remember who. I originally was going to get them when I contacted Mark but he also had the Denon pads for a much better price so bought those and never looked back.
