I just tried the hifiman leather pads on it, and yes I agree, it tends to improve the sound a tad bit. However, I find the Alpha pads more comfortable due to more supple leather and deeper cups.

I've never liked the Focus pads. The velour on it seems to give me the itch.

The treble on these phones should be used as an example by all manufacturers. Some magic that I can't explain.
I quite agree when using this headphone I realized the Superior tonality in relation other top headphones.
I used them as a reference point for others to compare to.
I would say this headphone is only beaten in soundstage and nothing else, (by HD800 & HEK).

It is indeed one of the best headphones (if not the best) I've heard, bar none. I'm listening to them on the Liquid Glass amp, and they are just blissful. It feels like music filling up the room. The imaging is crazy good.

 

Im interested to know how the Code-X compare to the Utopia, K Odin and the Master-1.

I will report back on how they compare to the Odin after a mini meet. 

 

The Utopia has better separation, dynamics, resolution, details, clarity but slightly less bass, more peaks up top and in the upper mids. The Code-X is slightly better balanced but not by much at all  and is superior.

Yes please do.

Your comment about Utopia having less bass is interesting. Someone in the HE-6 thread posted that the utopia has similar bass impact like the HE-6, and I feel the Code-x has slightly better bass than the HE-6.

I have ZMF pads on my Code-X so that could add some warmth but impact, quantity, and quality are all different things. I think the Utopia is more textured down low but the Code-X has a very focused bass that isn't thick, not super textured, but very clean, deep,  and controlled.
