post #901 of 903

@FlacFan Thanks! that helps a lot actually.

How is the sound? I suppose it would open up the soundstage a bit at the expense of some bass. Sorry for all the questions; you're the first one I know who has done this.

My ears are not the very best anymore, so take this with a grain of salt....

 

The Brainwavz pads are a bit thicker, a bit softer and the inner diameter is larger than stock, which means the drivers are a bit further away from your eardrums. To me there is very little difference at low frequencies. the mids and highs appear to be a bit "further away", but not really muddy or recessed. I actually increased volume a notch or two to compensate.

 

The biggest thing to me is that I had to put the L2 with stock pads down every hour or two, because my ears were hurting. Wearing glasses makes it worse, but I have no choice really.

 

With the Brainwavz pads all those issues go away. Two and even three hours - no problem.

 

So there you have it, but as always Y(ear)MMV....

 

Cheers

Thanks again!

Stock pads are never causing me any trouble, but with a narrow head, small ears and no glasses that's perhaps not a surprise. I'll probably throw in some pads on my next audio order though considering how cheap they are.
