Nevertheless a cool photo, very geeky.

i already tried :(
are there any bigger custom pads out there?
its about 3mm ... - if i remove the foam rings under the earpads, my ear stops touching... - how much do they change the sound signature?
Just get some K702 pads. They're made of a different material and don't compress as much as the Anniversary pads.
The K702 pads are angled, so it's less likely your ears will touch the driver.
Or sell the Anniversary and side-grade to the Q701
why should i sell my annies? :( (although i would make at least 150 € profit in austria)^^
i would have bought the X1 if they would have changeable pads
I know i've mentioned this before and you all thought I was nuts, but...
These sound better after the pads have warmed up and have been on your head for a few minutes. Maybe around 5.
This makes a little sense with memory foam. Could by my imagination, but i'm pretty sure it's not. This is the 2nd time I've experienced this.
Months ago I kept telling myself the sound seemed to vary so much.
Could be due to placement? Doubt that. It's not a big deal really but this seems really weird. My pads definitely do change after wearing them for a few minutes.
Try this out with some really harsh and fatiguing music. Like maybe Jpop. After they've warmed these bad tracks sound smoother.
I've also noticed that very low bit-rate music sounds worse on the Annie compared to the Q701. I wonder why?
I have no clue how a 96kbps mp3 file got in my collection. Must be an encoding error. Yeah and it's sounds awful.
Anyway, when I first put the headphone on the pads are much harder. When they've been on my head for an hour they're super soft and they go flat easily.
It seems I have some tracks that are worse on the Annie and others that were worse on the Q701.
I'm surprised how with some headphones I can be fatigued by lower mids I think that only happened before on the PX100-II and Philips Downtown.
Some music does sound amazing on the Anniversary, but too bad I don't have enough of that in my collection. Most of it sounds pretty dull.
BTW the E17 with L7 I really like as a DAC for the K702 Annie. I'm using that connecting to my Micro Amp. The lower mids are a bit bothersome on some bad music though (due to amp+headphone combo)
For some reason Sigur Ros sounds terrible on this. I think the recordings must be really poor. "Gong" is really bad and fatiguing. It's bad on the Modi too, but not as bad as on the E17.
