Barely used with only a couple hours on these. The Elite hybrid pads have velour where it touches your skin, fenestrated sheepskin around the interior hole and sheepskin around the outside edge for a very unique construction method that really works. This pair also includes the attenuation rings which are pretty much a necessity for the Fostex variants. Probably the most comfortable earpads I have ever used. Price is $53 shipped within the USA. For international buyers please PM your zip code and I will get you a shipping quote.
