Real leather pads are obviously the best. They are going to have the best seal against your head, and they will have the longest durability among pads. This is why they cost so much. Look at real leather jackets, you won't find one under 100 dollars, and likely for adult XL size, you'd be looking at 500 dollars. So leather is expensive, you get what you pay for. I know they cost as much as a headphone, but if you really care about your cans, and your cans are high quality, you'd be so nice to them to get them the top of the line pads. I bookmarked the link to the 50 dollar pads shared to me by olddude, eventually I want to get those but I will have to save up, cause it is a lot to dump into pads, and are low priority for me right now.

 

MGH24, you are hilarious man, see, your description is a perfect example of a guy who needs good isolation in his cans. So were talking closed back design hear, very important, especially while watching porn. :P And you want the real leather pads, the sheepskin. Then you won't hear a darn thing in the room, but your really going to hear your cans hehe WOOT WOOT :D

Way cool website OldDudeO4, thanks for that.

 

On that high frequency link I start hearing it at 18 kHz, but with some other sources, I can hear it at 20 kHz, though just barely. (I can also hear below 5 Hz!)

 

It's not really relevant, anyway. The frequencies of musical instruments are much lower than 20 kHz.

So I'm using the Fiio E12 to feed the 2K but I'm considering Caying C5 as a -seemingly- better amp. You guys think it's a worthy upgrade?

Depends on what you want. I've been reading about C5 and while I don't own one, I would be inclined to say that it is a sidegrade with a different signature.

That's what I gathered, too. What I'm looking for is: better bass boost, wider soundstage/ surround sound.

Since I haven't heard one, it would be misleading to say that it is either way. 

 

Best thing I can think of is like this: FiiO E12A did have a better bass, more musical mids and a larger soundstage - but the top end is smooth. Same for C5 actually. 

You might want to look into FiiO A5, which is seemingly the new best portable amp, and otherwise, I found FiiO K5 to be really good at soundstage and bass. 

 

There is also Mojo and ifi iDSD - I would recommend iDSD here from my experience and it has that 3D sound thingy that actually sounds natural, + a bass boost function that's not bad either. 

 

But at that price you can already buy a whole FiiO X5-3, Which has great bass and a large soundstage. 

 

So you can't really go wrong either way, it's only a matter of how much you want to invest :beerchug:
