    for me focus pads a sits better than the audeze pads , its  more comfortable for me - the vegan pads I feel too hot using it . the  focus pads to me brings better clarity
    the optimal  thing for me is the focus pads a , and then add the sorbothane strips .

    prefer Audeze pads(vegan or leather) over focus pads.

    Cheap and easy fix for comfort.

    Nice. Where did you get your grill? I've been thinking about re-doing mine again. Yours has the approximate amount of surface area reduction I am looking for.

    Has anyone bought from bhphotovideo? They have the vegan pads for $62. Are these the same?

    Good find.  Those are the same.  bhphotovideo is a very reputable seller.  I've been to their store in NYC.  Looks like they're offering free expedited shipping too!  Sale is only applicable for the Black color though.

    Great price for the pad I prefer over all others on the HE-6.  BUY a pair!

    Just order one...I will see how it compares with Focus-A pad.
    Btw, how can I install the vegan pad on Hifiman headphones? I remember there is a instruction about it. Anyone knows?
  12. Oregonian

    Multiple ways.  You can use the round double stick tape and put the pads direct to the cups (not using the HFM ring), or as I do tape the pads to the ring, then snap it on.  I prefer this method just so I can rotate it how I like it so fit.  Or I guess put the HFM ring into the pad and avoid the double stick tape entirely.

    I taped the pads on after having used the HiFiMan rings for a while. Taping directly to the cups added sub bass and quirky sounds disappeared. However, when you tape them on, make sure you don't want to reopen again and again after that. IMO.

    I dident manage to rip of the Audeze pads without breaking them. The pleather ripped. 
    So I had to order a new pair... Idk what I did wrong...

    I've ordered the Vegan pads too now. The price is high for just pads, and I hope I enjoy them. Have the Focus pads from the HE-560 which Ill compare against.
