Separate names with a comma.
same here pretty much, as I said they are glued so I think the chance is very small to none..
Ok so you were talking about the same thing Well, no matter. The PH's are endgame sounding to me, would easily buy a second pair. I hope they just update these cans with remove cables someday.
I don't know if anyone else was in on the Dekoni earpads from Massdrop. I saw that they had a sheepskin option so I went ahead and jumped on it. They arrived yesterday and while I absolutely adore the ZMF omni pads I've been using, I just had to satisfy my curiosity.
They came in a nice box with a magnetic clips that close for storage.
As far as how they affect the sound, I have to say I'm a bit surprised. There's something about the stock pads that kind of disappointed me, maybe it has something to do with the white plastic rings that were inside, but I don't remember what they were supposed to do. This set is just straight up memory foam and sheepskin, and they're very similar in sound to the ZMF Omni pads, albeit with a smaller, more intimate soundstage. As usual, since the driver sits closer to the ear, you can expect a tad less bass rumble (but more punch) and stronger treble.
Well done Dekoni, and this is coming from someone who was highly skeptical, if for no more reason than being wary of any company that deliberately spells "S" as "Z" (in their site name, www.earpadz.com, and, I'm also looking at you, Brainwavz).
Edit: After continued listening, I now remember what the plastic rings inside the stock earpads were for: attenuation of some of the treble frequencies. I'm starting to notice some sibilance in vocals and cymbals using the Dekoni pads. Not too much, but it's probably enough to cause some fatigue for some after long listening sessions. Maybe the effect is a bit subdued because I'm using a Vali 2 tube amp.
Massdrop sure are gluttons for punishment by continuing to use DHL in the US. Talk about adding insult to injury.
I will never Massdrop again. Between shipping, crap products or major incidents it's not worth my time or the stress.
My local USPS office does too. How can you deliver mail to me, and yet tell me my address is incorrect when a package was due to arrive today? What!?
Did they include the plastic ring that attach the pads to the X00 with the Dekoni earpads ?
The circle ring that lock the pad with the X00
No, it was just the pads. Honestly, I think that is a proprietary part for Fostex (and when it manufactures them with the headphones as an OEM for E-MU. Either that, or 3rd-party earpad manufacturers wouldn't think to include it because it's not something that easily needs replacing.
You can get additional rings here;
I bought a couple sets. It makes pad rolling much easier if you do not have to mount the rings each time.
Yea. But if I got one extra pair of ring, it would make pad rolling an easier process
The purchase is a pair or single?
Sadly they are single.
For the price of the single ring, you might as well purchase HIFIMAN pads that already come with the rings for less than the price of 2 single rings. It's kind of like Anker and the pricing of some of their USB cables. You can purchase their lowest capacity powerbank/charger that comes with an Anker USB cable for close to the same price as a sole Anker USB cable!
I think the mounting rings are different on the TH-X00 than they are on the Hifiman cans.
