Yes, it goes to the back, pad seams facing roughly 6 o'clock/downwards.
The pads you ordered are production focus pads.
The Focus A pads are preorder pads and they became available only recently.
All this talk got me real curios about the Focus A pads... I love everything about the 560 but the soundstage size, which I am still getting used to. Mind you the rather small overall size is still very detailed! So no complaints.
Still, I wonder if it is due to the pads and if A pads will do better.
