As we now know, the new protein leather ear pads from HiFiMAN are actually thinner than the velour pads. In order to get a good seal AND som distance between the ear and the planar driver, it therefore seems necessary to browse for a creative solution. Here´s a mission and I hope you can help me:
- The Ø (diametre) of the plastic ring on the HiFiMAN is 103mm
- The new ear pads have a sleeve that is fastened around the plastic clip
If it is possible to find another brand / aftermarket ear pad that is thicker and in leather / skin with the right dimension and the sleeve, mision would be completed.
However, it is nearly impossible to find the ear pad size information for some alternatives I think will fit (Beyer DTxx0, Denon DxK / J$).
Could you happy head-fiers measure the Ø (diametre) of the ear pads on your headphone if you know your manufacturer / brand deliver spare parts for it in skin / leather and it is fairly deep / and on/close to 103mm? Thanks.
I can start:
- First guess was the leater pads for the Audeze LCD-2 (110mm) = fail
