    Types of Earpadz

    Cool and comfortable, Dekoni’s Elite Velour is of a tighter weave than typical Velour pads, allowing for slightly better isolation and transfer of sound waves. Very soft feeling and considered by many to be the most comfortable pad surface material!

    The Sheepskin pads offer a long-life, easy to clean, sealed pad option. Choosing Sheepskin over the more common protein leathers provides a more breathable surface and less sweat production, while still acting to focus the sound directly to your ears with minimal absorption. They are also easy to keep clean and looking like new for a long time!

    Fenestrated Sheepskin is like an “aerated” sheepskin pad. Precisely measured and cut holes in the sheepskin give this pad a more true tone by providing a neutral sound absorption characteristic on the inside of the pad. So, just the good stuff makes it to your ears, and you hear a more natural sound out of your headphone. The perforations also allow the pad to “breathe” and more heat to escape.

    Our top of the line pads are the Elite Hybrids, a combination of all the best aspects of our other pads. The inner-lining of the pads feature the balanced Fenestrated Sheepskin, while soft, sweat-free Elite Velour makes contact with your skin, and the outter-face of the pads is wrapped in the sleek, premium Sheepskin.

    Dekoni tunes all our pads specifically for each headphone model; feature slow-rebound, high density memory foam; and have a squared-off shape to better couple and seal with your head. They are less hard and more squishy than most pads, to better mold to the contours of your bone structure, eliminating hot spots (even with glasses). A value on our dekoniaudio.com website already at prices starting at $49.99 to $99.99 depending on model and material choice, the Massdrop deal drops the prices as low as $34.99.

    I noticed your Focal fenesrated sheepskin pads are also on Amazon, but it looks like the foam underneath on those is yellow, while the current drop on Massdrop of the same pads look like they have black foam instead. Can you clarify whether the foam visible through the perferations is black or yellow? Thanks!

    Genuine Dekoni pads have YM80 foam inside, which is yellow. Depending on the lighting for the photo and the earpad model, though, you might not see the yellow. Massdrop’s supply of pads come directly from us, and so too are many of the dealers on Amazon. There was once a link in Massdrop discussions that lead to an eBay page, with knock-off Dekoni pads with inferior foam inside.

    Here’s a pair of Fenestrated Sennheiser HD 650 pads on top of AKG K702 Pads, you can see they’re a touch different.

    You can easily see the yellow foam inside the AKG pads, but the HD 650 pads look black. But if I get the light and the angle just right...


    You can see the yellow YM80 foam inside the HD 650 pads. In our recent @DekoniAudio Instagram upload, you can see a big cube of the YM80 foam, right before the reveal of a new set of pads we’re about to launch soon!
