wow, thats cheap USD 127 !
I tried to access the page at Taobao from Japan, but as you indicated, it seems that most of it is blocked from access outside China.
You need to create accout.
They ship Only China. I ask my friend in China send to Thailand. You can use shipping company.

I tried at 免费注册 and selected 日本 +81 + my Japanese 携帯 number, but China seems to block mobile calls to Japan, so I wont receive a verification number. 發送校驗碼已經達到上限,請在24小時後重試 . Too bad :no_mobile_phones::x::u7981::broken_heart: Did it work with your Thai mobile number? To get a Chinese friend seems to be a great investment for an audiophile.

There is only 50x50mm masking tape font of the earpads. China velour 110mm and original pad.

Thank you will try when my Deva arrived. By the way what would be the different after the masking tape mod, I know you have posted FR, but pardon me as I cant really translate it..

noted that, the Deva pads, will it be the same as any other Hifiman pads? rings, diameter etc?
Deva pad outer dimensions 110x105mm and inner 65x60mm. I don't know other Hifiman pad dimensions. China velour is 110x110mm and inner outside 65x65 (in the middle 60x60mm). Also Deva's pads are slightly angled.

Edit. Quick comparison to old Sennheiser HD555. It costed to me something like 100€ 15 years a go. Its slightly modded but overal signature is quite same as original. Of course Deva has some other problems that you don't see in the frequency response. It's a bit dirty on the treble and midrange but otherwise nice headphone and you get bluemini :) And if the think about more harman curve then the original pads are a bit better at upper frequencies to archieve that but on the bass side it's slightly worse. Also I like a bit relaxed treble, someone may like crispier sound and be more happy with original earpads.

I am relatively new to over ear headphones and recently got the Deva to replace my 7 year old Audio Technica ATH-AD700 headphones. I also purchased the Schiit Magni Heresy and Modi 3 to drive the Deva.

The Deva were an immediately noticeable upgrade over my Audio Technicas, the better lows and instrument separation stood out to me instantly. However, after a week of listening I have had constant problems with what I believe people call "listening fatigue". My inner ears feel uncomfortable or even a bit painful after listening, which has never happened to me on my Audio Technica headphones or IEMs. I have the knob on my amp turned to between 8-9 o'clock on low gain, so I do not think high volume is the problem. This problem was especially evident listening to Lucky by Radiohead, the high pitched guitar distortion was grating and difficult to listen to, again not a problem for me previously.

Being new to DACs/AMPs/Headphones, is there something I am doing wrong here? Or could these headphones just not be for me? I see others doing minor mods to get the sound they want out of the Deva, but I'm not sure I want to mod headphones that I cannot comfortably use stock.
