I actually don't have any problem with the stock pads, but you guys make it sound like I NEED these. Are these just stock pads from a Beyerdynamic set or are they specially modified somehow? Got a pic?

I'll make your decision easier.  Actually, there are not any J$ pads left.  You might see them appear in the F/S forums as people decide to sell off some gear.  However, as to new pads being sold by J$ and the shipping handled by me, it's the end of the road.  The box is empty.  54 or so pair of pads all gone within 7 weeks.

^^ I have rare item very_evil_smiley.gif

 

Something off topic here: I just bought the QPAD MK-50 with cherry mx brown switches.

 

I'll make it more on-topic: I picked the brown switches because they are less noisy than the blue ones so I can enjoy the HE-400 more!

Frankly, after listening to stock Pleather for a couple weeks, and then switching back to Velour, I have to say, the Velours are superior. Less fatiguing to my ears overall, a little more comfortable, and they actually seem smoother to me overall. The only real downside is hearing more static among my heavily compressed music.

Yeah I'm glad they're out too haha! 

 

I've been going back and forth way too much on whether to get them or not. But the fact I already spent so much is what drove my indecision

The J$ pads do not sound like the pleathers at all though.......the Jerg mods make the pleathers sound much better.

 

 

The Matt pads are the best, I have never heard them, but I looked at some measurements and others have said so it must be true......

Actually, I know for a fact that YGuyG has a sizeable cache of J$ pads that Jeremy split off for Canadian distribution. As far as I know far less people know that he's distributing the other half of the remaining stock so he probably still has a lot of them left.

Yes, you are correct.  However, I do believe they are "B" stock pads.  If I'm wrong, then I'll apologize in advance.  But, I just don't want to create false hopes in the event they are not the "A" stock items.  He also has a bunch of Grado leather head bands, too.  I think they are "B" stock also.
