    I have Omni pads and they didnt fit my ear and were uncomfortable if I shoved them in. I hope the Eikons fit my giant ass ears...

    I haven't ordered my pair yet but wonder if I could replace the pair of Omni pads with say Cowhide because thats the only set of pads I use with my Omni.

    That wouldn't be a problem! If anyone wants an alternate set of pads just leave a it at checkout, I'll also try to remember to add the options at checkout as well.

    I can't speak to how they would sound on the Atticus or eikon though. Haven't tried the oval pads on them.

    What headphone did you out the eikon pads on and how did they work?

    The E-MU Teak. They worked quite well! Best pads for them so far. The Eikon pads brought the drivers closer to the ear, similar to stock pads, and made it sound much more like stock as well. Best pads I've found for them yet. Brainwavz pads were bad. Tried 3 of those. Omni pads were the previous best. Shure 1540 weren't bad, not great. Etc...

    What did you think of the Atticus with female vocals?  Probably half the music I listen too has female vocalists.  I also listen to a lot of metal, typically with complex passages.

    wow so the atticus has a wider soundstage than the eikon?
    The Th900 has one  of the biggest sound stages of a closed headphone and if the Eikon is bigger and the Atticus even wider then that is some impressive staging.

    That is interesting. According to ZMF website Eikon has "a wider and deeper stage"

    Yeah that's a good observation, some of the copy on the site was written before the final driver was implemented, I'll adjust it today.

    Any other differences besides a cleaner mid bass and wider soundstage compared to impressions of the earlier pre-production design?

    The tuning is pretty darn close, mainly the changes are a enlarged magnet, thickened the membrane and slightly opened the size of the ports in the back of the driver. It did bring the treble up a about 1-2db which I think accounts for the stage seeming larger. Aside from that it has lower distortion, a cleaner sound to the bass boost, and more punch and feel presentation wise.

    I'm glad I preordered both models....:upside_down:

    Great, thanks Zach!

    Lower distortion is fantastic news. The overall sound of the Atticus appeals to me but I was worried that distortion levels might be really noticeable compared to the Eikons.
     
  13. ProfFalkin
    Ditto! The waiting game might kill me... But I'm still glad.

    There's a very slight dip in the upper-mids, but I had to get a lot of test tracks to tell it was there. It's akin to the dip with the upper-mids dip in the HD800, albeit a tad less obvious than that.
     
     
    Yah, the soundstage is wider. I have both cherry sets, so the panduak may be slightly larger soundstages on both since the pore size is a lot bigger.
