And I really love them with ZMF Universe Suede pads — a little less V-shaped than stock pads, but still very open/airy/ethereal. Very slightly softened highs — barely noticeable on most tracks. You gotta buy spare mounting rings, but they only cost $10 (IIRC — maybe it was $15) direct from Hifiman.…IMO these are great open cans with fantastic price/value ratio. I really enjoyed them with "Focuspad A" earpads.
I absolutely agree that they are a great value. They still get a fair amount of head time after 7 years even though I own/have owned many sets which are much closer to the ’summit’.
