Focus (and ""-A) pads are significantly more comfortable, that's definite.

 

In terms of sound, Jergpads are much bassier, with a fuller midrange, better tone and timbre in general, and more realistic imaging, with a more "out of the head" soundstage.

 

Meanwhile, Focus (and ""-A) pads deliver smoother treble, cleaner more accurate bass, better detail extraction / transparency in general, and more precise (albeit more closed-in) imaging.

 

As you can see, I've been struggling deciding what to just go with, ultimately I may just use one solution for a few months, swap, and vise versa.

 

Do you still prefer the Focus-A to the Focus?

Yes, but mostly because of comfort; with Focus-A's, the outer edges of my ears can tuck under the earpads, that doesn't happen with the Focus pads. Sonic-wise they are really similar when you consider how different Jergpads sound relative to them.

Thanks...I've really been wanting to get a pair for my HE500's but have been holding off until the dust settles on the pads.

 

I'm half expecting a 3rd FocusPad to show up with the best qualities of each and retiring the first two...
