Dekoni Hybird Elites just showed up and I'm about 30min in with them on my head. Initial impression is that they are both deeper and feel like they add a little extra perimeter space as well. The also make much better contact / seal on my head, especially in the difficult lower read area behind the ear and above the jaw. Looking at them side-by-side with the stock 6XX pads, the interior wall of the Dekoni's is perpendicular with the with the speaker face where as the stock pads taper inward slightly. So the "ear hole" on the Dekoni's is a cylinder, where as stock is a cone. I think part of what was bothering my lobes on the stock pads was that the tapered sides where touching more of my ear. One downside is that the extra depth does increase the already high clamping force. They still sound like 650's to me and I havent done any A/B tests yet, but if anything is different I feel like I'm hearing a little bit more resolution in the tremble. Still, I don't know if it's enough of a comfort improvement for me to keep my 6XX's long term. Thanks! very useful information. Bummer about the HE560, based on reviews of the sound, it was looking like a good value per $ option... but it sounds like the fit would be a deal-breaker for me. Did you have any issue with your ears touching the speaker foam in the 700?
