- Driver: 57mm composite film horn speaker + 180 Degree Open Cavity
- Impedance: 32 Ω
- Sensitivity: 98 dB
- Frequency range: 16 - 20000Hz
Not the earpad, but the dampening material covering the driver. One had a thin sheet of dense (but soft to touch) foam, the 'faulty' one had this garbage porous material that did nothing to dampen the treble, it almost felt like the smoother component of a velcro system.Hmm @jasswolf did report that the 2nd set he purchased sounded different from the first set. Something to do with the different earpad materials?
Maybe u can try this link to see if your set if wired out of phase:
If it is "grating", could it be the upper mids/lower treble is too harsh for you?
Here's my comparison of the two I've purchased, where you can clearly see the issue with the material:Mine have surely got the GPM (garbage porous material).over the drivers! I wonder in what way one might go about introducing this to fact, though, to the seller? Maybe s/he wouldn't even recognise it as a fault?
With much appreciation for your help
The sound would be even worse, as the foam is the to tame the treble.Hello again! Do you mean to say that, in the advertising photos of this headphone on Ali X there is included a pic of the material covering the driver? Which, in said pic, is the proper foam and not the 'GPM'? I cannot find such a one as yet..
Meanwhile, what sort of result do you think I could expect if I managed to safely remove the GPM from driver and just left it at that..?
If you've got the one on the right, just file a dispute straight away. You're going to have to repair it by hand either way, and they need to acknowledge that this kind of practice isn't acceptable.Okay I see 'em now. Do you recommend sending this pic to seller and asking if they could send me the foam?
