post #1636 of 1644

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.

Anyone get there Jergpads from Modular recently? Haven't heard from him in awhile
