    Dekoni has upgraded it's measurement rig! Now more scientific and accurate, this will allow customers to get more objective previews of how their headphones will sound wearing Dekoni pads. We purchased this second-hand (some of you may recognize the rig), but we intend to keep on measuring all different brands of headphones with and without our pads!

    Is your goal to measure all your pads on the models they fit?

    I realize the rig served him well during the InnerFidelity days but, when the trees used to make the enclosure aren't the oldest thing in the rig, it might be a good time to consider a trip to your local Best Buy

    Mount that thing on a realdoll torso and you might have something.

    We definitely want to measure as many of our pads on headphones as possible, and use measurements to better inform our design process.

    We do not have access to every headphone our pads fit, however. For example, the Beyerdynamic DT Pads fit several Beyerdynamic models, plus several models from other brands. It should help a fair bit to see the headphone’s stock sound, compared to the change from the pads, and infer what the same pads might do to other headphones with the same mount.

    It’s not perfect, but we do expect to take measurements on a fairly regular basis!

    Indeed, there are some pads that are on the generic side. However, it would be great to see more detailed measurements for specific models - like the HD800, HD600, TH-X00, LCD series, and Focal.

    So let me get this straight - you're complaining that Dekoni now has access to the rig behind the most comprehensive set of measurements readily available?

    Should they invest in a top dollar measurement rig, post favourable measurements for sponsors' products that look different than all other measurements online, and simply brag about how expensive the rig was whenever the measurements are questioned?

    wish dekoni would design a new pad for Hifiman HE1000 V2 as it seems people who tried some diy with pad rolling got great results

    well, I sent an email to dekoni asking for advise about what difference their elite pad models make on an audeze lcd mx4, and all I got an answer from them, is yes they fit as an answer, as if I do not know that they fit, my question was bout how they affect the sound and not about fit

    my interest was in the elite hybird model, but since i got a lame answer I will not go for it, and better to stay stock

    when someone will think bout messing around their pads with expensive headphones like audeze lcd mx4 or 4z they better have an answer ready for such question
