Might be a dumb question, but can one just take J$ pads and attach the ring/mesh from the stock pleather earpad set to it?
It doesn't seem like you need to glue pantyhose to the ring that comes with J$ pads, nor butcher the stock pleather ones by removing the mesh and attaching it to the J$ included ring.
Or am I missing something?
I may be mistaken, but I think the stock pleathers mesh is attached to the pad, not the ring. You need that ring for the other pads (denon, j$) to be compatible. I guess one solution is that you could remove the mesh and attach it to the ring so that it's present with each pad. I've been looking into alternatives so people don't have to cannibalize all their pads, but I haven't tried anything yet. I did get 2 extra velour pads for the rings to test with, so when those get here we'll see.
