And that's why I said ''And also don't glue the pads into place since those gets worn out and needs to be replaced over time.''
But the pads are glued from the factory, no? I mean they can be mounted only using their strong adhesive (glue)

Pads should never be glued into place... they should be easy and quick to remove and to put on.
Ah ok, you are questioning the construction. I agree, pads should be removable like they are on Beyer, Focal or ZMF.
Hopefully DCA will review this dec in the future

Right. The difference in sound is due to the perforated pads, though. I'm pretty sure if you took the original Aeon 2s and swapped the pads, it would be the same as the Noires in terms of sound.
Bit late to the party sorry, but exactly this. I tried the perf pads with my Aeon 2 closed. The tuning became the same as the Noire (personally I don't like the Noire tuning, it's brighter).

Whelp! The thread on one of the clamps that holds the leather to the nitinol headband got stripped and won't hold the clamp in place. How screwed am I (pun intended)? Any way to fix it? I'd like to avoid glueing the thing together... Thanks.

Same thing happened on mine, and they rather quickly sent me a little bag of several replacements.
