post #1636 of 1643

It looks like the right thing to me. I think there is currently only a single 560 pad available.

I am considering trying a pair myself to compare with the Modulor/Jerg pads.

HFM is now offering both the Production (Focus) and pre-Production (Focus-A) HE-560 pads.  Same cost.

You might want to take note of the size of the opening, if that's a potential problem for you:

HFM states they are 6 cm and 5.5 cm, respectively, yet the Production version certainly seems to measure smaller than 6 cm.  Definitely going to double-check when I receive my pair.  I'd hate to have to return them.

Interesting.

Jerg was just saying that he had heard that they "might" offer the pre-production pads... yesterday, I think.

Now they are on the site!

 

There has been lots of high spirited discussion about which is "best" and exactly what the differences sonically are.

I am not really sure at this point which I should try.

I placed an order for the hybrid pads and just noticed that I will be getting the stock pads (production). As they have not shipped would I be better off the with FocusPad-A?

Take a look at this thread:

http://www.head-fi.org/t/711824/hifiman-he-560-impressions-discussion-thread

 

Look in the last 100 or so pages (or just search for production... or pre-production pads). They have been talking about the pads with the 560 for weeks.

Some like one , some the other. It seems to be a personal preference sort of thing.

 

They aren't real expensive, maybe try both. You won't know for sure until you listen to them yourself.

If the shoe pad fits, wear it.

I just got my Focuspads (non-A) and the internal diameter is just over 5.5cm (definitely not 6cm).

 

Other than that the things are pretty much angled, softer Jergpads. Nothing to complain about stitching-wise.

 

The pads are glued to the mounting rings and have a short lip over the ring itself (similar to what we do in the Jergpad mod).

 

The pleather is perforated only interiorally. The pleather 'behind' the velour is unperforated. I can't take a picture without separating it from the mounting ring, which I don't want to do at this stage.

 

The new velour is nowhere near as itchy as on the original velours, and is reminiscent of the Beyerdynamic pads.

I ordered some FocusPads as well and waiting for them to be shipped. Looks likes they are in high demand and my ship date keeps on getting pushed out.
