Don't complain... Here's why:

Pleather:....$20
Velour:......$10

FINALLY attached the black fabric over the plastic rings under neath my J$ pads. Now they look like they are designed this way.

Oh, with the Jerg mod, do you still use the foam rings?

Is it easy to get the earpads off? How do you do it?

No, the foam rings mess up the sound.

Thanks Jerg! Do you keep them on stock pleather or velour? Mine came with none on (Bought used), what are they even for?

Some people have complaints of their ears touching the drivers because stock pleathers are a bit too shallow, so the hard foam rings are a hack that Hifiman did to resolve that issue. If you have ear-touching-drivers issues then the back-vents mod should be sufficient to resolve it, without messing up the sound.

KK, thanks! Also, how'd you go about removing the grill?

Thanks. I should have them tomorrow and wanted to make sure it wasn't too difficult to get the J$ money pads on. How do the J$ pads compare to the Jergpad mod?
