Yeah - I don't know what they mean by that. According Wikipedia, "moleskin" usually refers to a cotton fabric, not fake leather. If you look at the full size image on the Telex website, you can see that the pads are definitely not a cotton fabric. They look like good old pleather with a mild texture.




David Clark also makes some interesting headband pads: http://www.davidclarkcompany.com/aviation/comfort.php

Either that or some Ozark preevert actually skins moles:eek:

 

Familiar with Clark's stuff. It's usually waay pricey.

For some reason, I get a kick out of finding a way to use a product intended for one purpose in a completely different way. For example, I could cut one of these in half:

I bought a bagful of shearling offcuts ages ago for just that purpose.:)

Id purchase the Koss ESP950s like that if I could.  The Porta pros are just champs allround.

lol - let me give you an idea of what it's like to live with a technophobe.

Yesterday she had to drive to an unfamiliar location that was about 2.5 hours away. She put the address into her phone's GPS application and started on the trip. She had just left, when she got a phone call telling her that the location she needed to go to had changed, and the new location was in a different city.

My wife couldn't figure out how to stop or exit the GPS app on her phone, so for the next 2 hours, the phone kept trying to direct her to the original destination. Her answer to this was to turn down the volume on the phone so she couldn't hear it telling her "when possible, make a legal U-turn". The phone finally ran down it's battery and shutdown.

A few hours later, when she had recharged her phone, she called me and told me the story. I said: "Why didn't you just reboot the phone?" There was a pause, and then she said "Yeah, I could have done that if I had thought of it."

Don't misunderstand - my wife is very intelligent - however anything having to do with technology just seems to make her disengage her brain and instantly become the She-Hulk.

This seems promising: http://www.engadget.com/2014/07/31/tesla-panasonic-gigafactory-deal/?ncid=rss_truncated


Why is it that I can absolutely loathe and detest EV like the Prius & Volt, yet the idea of a $40K Tesla has me very excited? I think that it's not only because the Tesla is a darn fine car, regardless of it's powerplant, but also because I really like the idea of an upstart company exposing the very chummy ties between the gov't and the traditional auto industry. I think Tesla's direct sale model is the inevitable future - the auto industry should not be immune to the natural upheaval in the old, inefficient distribution model.

Hmm... Mrspeakers is Dan Clark, so we may have actually been onto something about those Dog Pads :D

That is exactly how internet myths get started... tongue.gif

I think it's just as likely Dan (who is from San Diego), crossed the border and had the dog pads created by a Tijuana tuck & roll upholstery shop...


Back to Tesla - isn't it everyone's dream to someday be able to go on the internet, configure the car you want, and then have a truck come to your house and delivery your new car? Jeez, I think I would pay a premium to not have to deal with Cal & his dog spot:
