One important detail I neglected to mention about the new HFM pads vs Jergpads comparison I did, is that my modulor Jergpads were worked-on by me further...I angled them in order to improve soundstage depth. So while my personal pair of Jergpads trade blows with the new HFM pads, I have to assume that other Jergpads lose an edge due to lack of angling.
Nonetheless, I think the difference in how they each attenuate the tonal balance determines whichever one is better for a user. If you get the HE560s and feel that they are too bright for your tastes, you might want to score a pair of Jergpads somewhere and try that instead. If you feel the neutral balance is perfectly fine for you then there is zero reason to waste $$$ and try other pads. These new HFM pads are insanely comfortable and well-built.
