Curious...I had the standard (non-Copper) version, so I was wondering...do the earcup sliders on the Copper version pivot a bit (they do not on the standard version)? All my other beyerdynamic headphones have a slight pivot to the sliders, be it the Custom One to the DT 1770, such that a seal can be achieved.
I fail to understand what you mean with earcup sliders (My engrish not perfect)

The Amiron W. is also know for leaking bass if you don't set it up right on the head or if you have a smal head(?) I fixed the leaking bass by buying earpads covers as I like to protect my babies and I don't have to screw something up when replacing the earpads. The covers I use are from Greekia from Amazon for example.

Copper version as well here and really love it. Too bad there is no Amiron Home Copper version. Would have been a nice collection.
Don't think my head is particularly small - I have to fully extend the sliders to fit. I think the issue is that the pads are a bit too hard so that a tight seal is difficult.

Replacing the earpads is very easy, much easier than I originally thought. I browsed the Dekoni site and found that they have FR measurements for all their earpads compared to the factory pads. I should have read those before ordering my Dekoni as the Sheepskin pads have clearly reduced FR above 1Khz which explains the warmer sound I heard. The Fenestrated Elite Sheepskin pads on the other hand matches the factory pads closely in FR. I'll need to get the Fenestrated Elite Sheepskin then. Too bad I can't return the Sheepskin ones as I cut the screen already. Oh well.

Yes, the sliders pivot a bit but then the issue is with the pads so it's still not perfect even after adjustment.

Had to find the meaning of the pivot but blame it on my English. They do pivot a bit but I've never seen it as an issue or it's the construction(?). Coincidentally I've a bigger issue with my DT 880 Black Edition where the left side is way too lose and pivot very easy. But such seals can be achieved with all my other Beyerdynamics.

I'm too scared I think but so far I'm impressed with the sound so I don't need to replace the pads. I think it has to do with the position of the pads and also the covers too but as for me, if something works, don't fix.

I use these:
https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B07HCH3QHB/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A1Z9JDUNXKNJVN&psc=1
after this is placed:
https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B07C6GHSWR/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It improves the comfort too.

I just added the Amiron wireless to my beyer collection. Has anyone tried pad swapping 1770 pleather or valour pads onto their wireless?

Unfortunately, I had both, but not at the same time. I returned the Amiron Wireless due to fit/seal issues and still have the DT 1770 Pro (on which I installed these earpads).

If you try, I'd appreciate some feedback on how well it seals, since I have the spare PU pads lying around. Never have been a fan of velour. Love the sound from real leather.

Hi guys, I own the regular Amiron Wireless and i use it plugged into my ifi iDSD BL , it sounds sooo amazing, decently wide soundstage, excellent bass with Xbass on, and warmish Vocals thats kinda out of head. Its sooo good.

Does anyone know the difference with the Copper and regular version in terms of sound? The power button is stuck on my Amiron Wireless and I am looking to get another pair.

According to the spec sheets they're pretty much the exact same headphone except for the visual changes and the copper version weighing 20g more because of the solid copper ring. Did you check with Beyer if the power button issue is fixable?

I got the Copper version because 1) it looks damn sexy and beautiful and 2) the price difference were from €59 up to €70 to the standard version.

About the powerbutton being stuck, did you use your nail? I read people having problems with it but I don't use nail and so far still no problem.

The 1770 pads definitely seal a bit better than the stock alcantara. The Amiron & Amiron Wireless pads are ever so slightly bigger than the 1770 & 1990 pads. I also swapped out the tuning foam that came with the 1770 and it really livened up the headphones and brought out the treble. If you feel the center of the tuning foam that came with the Amiron its quite thick. For people who are treble sensitive I suggest just pad swapping and leaving in the tuning foam if you want a better seal. I was using the 1770 valours and have yet to try out the pleather pads though i'm sure they'll improve the seal even further compared to the valours. Also wanted to note that the Amiron Home & Amiron Wireless uses the same earpad ring system found on the 1770 & 1990 so you just need to use a small flat head and the ear pads will pop right out.

Look at that, it's a beauty all over the place.

I see there is one common issue on the Amiron Wireless, there is a small piece of the headband popping out at the left side. The right side doesn't have the issue.
