do these headphones have removable/replaceable earpads? I would think that after a while, even leather would need to be replaced

post #50 of 195

No, they are not user replaceable.  If they had been, they could have avoided having to have the "bad" ones send in for repair...

Undoubtedly under top end headphones, i.e. Orpheus, SR-Omega, Omega II, R-10 and K1000.

I think the earpads should at be user replaceable, just like a sofa or car seat needs to be reupholstered

Agreed 100%. Not a very good DFR by Ultrasone (Design for Repair-ability). They are not the only ones though.

Never mind, I just finished going through the entire thread.

You'll see yours after orders are met, they already have your money.

I emailed with a dealer and the ear pads are quite easy to replace. I thought there might be some sort of magic involved but he said it is just double sided tape and not a big deal though Ultrasone seems to make it one. The pads on the LCD-2 are double sided tape and if you take just a little time, they are easy to move, remove and replace.

This is true. Even a headphone with quality materials like the Edition series costs very little for the materials. Now, tooling is where you have the major costs of headphone proudction. And assembly in Europe adds to the cost as well. But $2,700 is really an outrageous cost for a normal headphone, considering that its nearest competitors cost $1,500 or less. Considering you can buy an Omega 2, SR-507, HE-6, LCD-2, or HE-60 for less than $2000, I certainly wouldn't pay that much for a dynamic headphone with no innovative technology. If I'm going to pay that much for a headphone, it better come from a manufacturer with a history of producing top-quality headphones and use innovative technology or manufacturing processes. That would be the C32.

Now the C32 is something I am anxious to read more about. It appears to be a real contender for top of the heap. It looks solid too. What is the projected cost now?  

post #59 of 195

$3500-6000 is the estimate right now
