I have them for 2 days now - I don't have the problem with the slack sliders (yet ??).  Getting a good fit on the ears is a little issue for me though - I seem to have larger ears than others. ...

 

I can also confirm that the earpads are a little too soft - after some 30 minutes listening or so I get the feeling that my ear touches the "grill" of the driver.

I will try to stuff the pads with some soft cloth or wool.

 

Cheers, hopefully a bit of stuffing will solve your comfort issues. My pair will be here today........I'm expecting some aural pleasures this evening : )

Good luck - i have been comparing them. to the LCD 2 over the Last days. I Can say That the Pandora sound very nice with female vocals but also with jazz. With Oldtime rock (King crimson, Genesis etc.) i felt they have a similar Sound as the Denon 7100 (i Don 't have them - this is just my Impression from Memory)
Compared to the LCDs they Need much less amp power -in direct comparison on my Superuniti I playd them with a loudness Setting of 30- 35 while I had to Turn loudness up to 47-52 with the LCDs to get the same Sound level.

I Hope somebody finds Bettler Earpads for them. Stuffing helps but is no satisfying solution for ever.

Could you do a more detailed comparison between the PHVI and LCD2 when you get the chance? With highs, mids, lows, soundstage, imaging, timbre, etc.

I used to have an lcd2 it would be very hard for a headphone to have timbres and a black background like it. Everything sounds really natural. On the other hand it would be easy for a headphone to sound more fun.

For all Pandora VI owner, I went to mook festival in Jakarta today and good news they are going to give all pandora VI owner a new pad (at least that they told me). I tried the new pads on the new Pandora IV (gonna be released in few days). The new pads are much much more comfortable. I think the new pads should solve the comfort issue.

 

For Pandora IV SQ i just listened for a brief moment because they went south compared to the VI. It has the traditional FAD's weird (for me) sound signature. I couldn't get to enjoy them, and since I never liked any FAD's in ear line up i can't compare the sound at all. but i think traditional FAD's fan should be able to enjoy it.

That's great to hear about the new pads!

Wish I had had the money to get them from Amazon when they priced them wrong.

My pad was coming off on one side, so I figured I'll try the instruction on the video... Ended up sending for repair, lol
Definitely not meant for the original pad

I hope those pads don't cost and arm and a leg. I am getting broke here. any time of release?

post #116 of 1646

Oh wow that's great news! Man I wish I still had mine to try out with the new pads. Only been a week and a half since I said goodbye to them, been in withdrawal ever since :(

post #117 of 1646

two people that sold them or don't have them and want them back... I bet I will add @xanlamin to that list as well.

They have been great with all kinds of acoustic music and vocals have a great depth and separation. I find it surprising how well they work with EDM as well, as they seem on the slower side and warm but the bass presence and upper mid details really push songs along.

I find that the low impedance really brings out differences in mastered volume levels and I'm constantly adjusting the volume when my playlist jumps between albums.

Also, the upper mids and treble really come out at higher volumes and balance the overall sound......I think I'm slowly deafening myself but it sounds so good.

Yasss that would be a sweet deal....even if they are reasonably priced this would be great too! The pads are very comfy but a bit thicker would be perfect.

post #120 of 1646

The new pads are thicker, and a little bit more firm. which provide good isolation and better comfort for me. 

 

My pads was broken today. seems to be a common issue. waiting from replacement from Jaben.
