Well they are definitely not pleather that's for sure. They are velour with a faux leather o ring stitched to the velour so it can hook over the driver plate onto the wooden housing. Yes they have rather stiff memory foam inside.

The original pads were more of a cross between velour and fabric.  The more recent pads for the current standard FA-011 have a tighter weave and are more of a fabric feel.  These pads are also a little stiffer so your ears are a little further from the drivers.

 

The LE's have a proper velour pad, but they're not as deep as the current fabric pads of the standard FA-011's.

Sorry Defqon, but I don't want to open the LEs to take pics.

Continuing to love these. Have found that they pair really well with slightly smooth / mid-centric devices like the AK100. They don't need colouration, but they reveal harshness in dry sources and sound sweet with smooth sources.

Running mine off a valve amplifier, superb simply superb.
Might even get a second helping.......

Curse you Loquah! I own a pair of FA-011 (with black cups, coiled cable) which I've been perfectly happy with but after your review I now want the LE. tongue_smile.gif

There's no denying that they look absolutely gorgeous and as soon as I can justify it to my wallet, I'll probably have to pull the trigger on these.

Sorry Caze! They're worth it though. I hope you can find stock somewhere. Billy from Noisy Motel still has walnut and iroko versions I think and I thought the walnut looked sweet.

Powering them straight from the Fiio X3 and they sound great, very revealing and layered sound listening to "Graceless" by The National on FLAC.Very effortless stat like presentation.

 

Female vocals are fabulous too especially Mylene Farmer and Assia, easily my favourite open cans in my collection except the HE6.

 

Did I mention I,m getting a second pair gs1000.gif (for posterity,s sake).

NEED PICS OF FILTER!!!!!

Sorry DefQon, I am happy for you to have a look but not opening them, if that helps.

That's fine, I may be getting 3 pairs of these soon but in the meantime can you at least look through the grills and see what is inside.

post #45 of 107

Open up one pair and go to town with it but get in quick cause I'm seeing Bill tomorrow so there might not be three left very_evil_smiley.gif

 

Seriously though, the pads have a fine fabric mesh, then there,s a foam disc underneath,metal disc with holes and the driver.

 

It has a impedance resistor too, keep that in mind as that changes the sound a lot.

 

I,m not technically inclined so pardon my ignorance but as previously stated I am happy for you to see how they look.

 

BTW hooked them up with the X3->PB2 (LME49990/HA5002 opamp/buffer) and the soundstage is even better than the X3 running solo.
