[Review] Superlux HD681 EVO - Page 29

post #421 of 493

I've had the stock pleather pads on mine for several months and they are very comfortable.  The main thing is to loosen the clamping force on the headphones.  Then after that the pleather pads are fine for comfort.

I know, I own the EVO mk2 (with extra velours) for a while and many other Superlux models for years.

Yeah, I think that info was supposed to go in another thread ;-)

Hey, how should I go about replacing the pads? First pair of real headphones and I want to try out the velours but I don't want to tear/rip anything.

The question has already been answered a few messages earlier.

You just pull the existing pads off, from one side. You're in no danger of damaging anything.

The pads are basically sleeved onto the edges of the cups, like a sock.

To install the new ones you just reverse the procedure.

It will take a bit of patience as the new pads are usually very tight, so you'll need to stretch them gradually until they fit.

My 681 EVO's are on the way, but I have a question. Does anyone know how the sound compares to the KSC75? I have these and I love the sound. Thanks.

Yeah, just got them off and replaced the pads. It felt weird at first, likey they were oddly furry, but I got used to them after like 10 minutes and they feel very comfortable. Thanks!

I have to do that too when they arrive. Was it easy to do then?

For the first pad, I struggled a lot and almost gave up. It was much easier for the second one when I basically stretched and forced it on.

Thanks.

Mine arrived today and they are burning in now. My wife changed out the pads while I held them steady, and it was VERY easy. It took about 1 minute to do each side.

 

How long of a burn in period is required until they "peak"?

i think the biggest change in sound is apparent by 140 hours but burn in isnt completed until around 220 hours.

Thanks. I didn't know it was that many hours. They sound good, but so far I like my KSC75's better.

One more thing, I found that burn-in hours with pink noise are more effective than just playing music. That's with burn-in on any piece of gear.

And what's the source of the pink noise?
