Yeah my ears are very discriminating when it comes to subtle tonal balance differences. Ultimately the new Hifiman pads are very close in sound to the final version of Jergpads on an absolute level, compared to alternative earpads I've tried. And it is no surprise, since the two are quite analogous in features - both have internal damping features, velour tops, angling (backvents vs intrinsic angling).
