I C. Yeah the silver/maple ones were beautiful. Too bad they discontinued them. And yeah, they stopped making them BEFORE Meze decided to go with larger pads, so that all makes sense. I wish they hadn't stopped making them b/c they were a nice alternative to the silver/walnut one I got. Really? Ok. Well everyone including Meze says they're bigger, so they must be somewhat larger. Sorry to hear about your ear pain man. Hope it gets better soon! Well we'll see I guess cuz if I get these PSBs I guess I'll know what the smaller ones sound like. lol Very cool man! Yeah it is a pain, but again if it's only bass, that means I only have to adjust the first THREE of the 10 bands to fix it.
