I'm on a slow data connection... Fast enough to load sites... But i don't exactly feel like downloading files.

The pleather pads are great. I own a pair of those too. However, for the sextett, the velour are the better match.

In general, pleather increases bass and lower midrange response while velour brings out the upper midrange and treble (on most headphones). The sextett, which already has excellent quality bass and mids, only needs a bit of help in the treble. The velour pads do exactly that (once you remove the foam backing).

I've tried dozens of pad/tuning combinations and the shure 940 velours, with backing removed, is the best sextett pad I've found.

So yes. I'd say the most inventive headphone company from the 50's-70's. Paved the way for modern cans.


I laso noticed that AKG paved the way for modern headphones but i still would use a Sextett, they are amazing.
