    Exactly, bass is more clean, still there but with improved quality

    Does anyone know the difference between the 1st gen pads and 3rd gen pads? I mean I hear people praise the 1st gen pads. I just ordered these headphones from amazon and they come with the 3rd gen pads.

    Is there a difference in comfort? I really am happy with my Neo with the newer pads but if this is even more comfortable that would be nice. Which pads are those exactly? Do you have a link? They look really good.

    I'm testing them now with this low quality track when bass hit they are very clean no boom, but i can feel that punch that's so nice with Meze Classics

    Switching from Infected Mushrooms to Tools and different genres, I have the feeling that that "boomy" control improved consequentially the detail of them, they actually sound much better than before

    Well they are really better about comfort, with the original ones I was feeling a bit of pressure on ears after long listening sessions, with these ones.. it's like not wearing any headphone!

    And just to conclude my advise to my fellow UK residents my advise is to stay away from massdrop when it involves Hifiman products ... IMG_20180530_194619497.jpg

    Straight out of the box .Not even checking what they put in.

    This in comparison with the pristine quality of my Meze products...

    Can anyone recommend a nice portable DAC that could give me a sweet bass as well as good clarity for my brand new Meze 99 Classics? I'm looking for a portable DAC or DAP under $150 or £150 since my Samsung S8 has a proper bad DAC.

    Honestly, just get on amazon or ebay and snatch up one of the last Fiio Q1 MK1s if you're not going to use balanced output/cables...more power and it honestly sounds very good. The other idea, if you want to spend a bit more, would be to grab a Topping NX4 or NX4 DSD. The DSD has a better DAC chip, but also costs about $50 more...still within your range though. I have a 99 NEO, which doesn't need any bass boosting, but it plays nicely with my Q1MK1. You can also go to BH Photo Video's site and look into one of the last Fiio Alpen 2s.

    I'd go with one of the NX4s though, as they seem to be one of the better spec/price deals going on right now.

    Hey, So the brainwavz sheepskin ear pads arrived.
    Put them on and had a quick listen to the usual songs.

    Comfort wise, no doubt, its more comfortable compared to the original pads that were already comfortable enough.

    Sound wise, I don't know if I really prefer this or the original pads. Especially the bass. I can't really describe, it just sounds different.
    Have I been listening to "not so good quality bass" such that when I'm presented with supposed "better quality sounding bass", I'm not used to it?

    Sorry for sounding so noob.

    I have found no pad that sounds like the originals, I always had to go back to stock
