When I've bought that new cable and there's no difference in sound, i'll be quoting you on this :)
These should come through today, can anyone on head-fi who has the Fidelio X1 and any other spare pads do a huge favour to the community please....
Take off the Fidelio X1 glued pads and test some other replacement pads on them and see if you can find some which have a similar fit / sound that will attach to the X1.
Why are you saying that? Do you not want to know? You do not seem bothered about it. Even though in 2-5 years the X1 you seem to like a lot will be useless if the pads break and there are no decent replacements.
He's saying it because, once they're broke, they're broke. Want to give it a go on your new 'phones and report back to us?
I am not bothered. Why? Because we have no facts that these will go "bad". We have assumptions...
Well no, based on every other pair of velour pads, and the materials properties and wear statistics.... The pads will wear out in 2-5 years of moderate use, the same as every other pair of velour pads ever made.
