After reading so many gushing reviews about the Denon D7000's I finally decided to take the plunge and found a new pair of the headphones on Ebay. I'm really happy with the sound and they complement my Graham Slee Voyager amp very nicely.
However, I can't help myself when it comes to tweaking with any equipment I buy and so I was looking into the 2mm foam pad mod to stick in the earpads, rather than go all out and invest in the Jmoney Lambskin pads right off the bat.
However, I was a little disturbed to find imperfections behind the right pad once I removed them and I've attached photos of the problems.
I definitely didn't cause any of these problems when removing the pads. I was ultra careful and didn't use anything metal or pointy getting the pads off. Just the palm of my hand.
What do you guys think? Are these just manufacturing issues that Denon have chosen to ship the product with or are the headphones a refurb sold as new?
