The earpads are either velour or leather.
Everyone the event is tomorrow. We have have a sale for limited items that we have in stock at 10% off, including any pre-orders (such as the much-in-demand HM-901). The sale is one-day only during the event! So if you are in NYC, come by AC Gears on 8th Street (you need to RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org) or visit the link on our facebook page, speak to the man behind the brand (Dr. Fang Bian), test out the HiFiMAN gear (the HE-400 really is a different kind of headphones, open-air but very full and rich in detail), get a great discount, network with other headphone enthusiasts, check out other great gadgets and electronics we have, have some cold beers, and the list goes on! See you all tomorrow!
