    Thanks! I have bad experiences with the durability of some stock earpads of other headphones as they got damaged after less than a year of usage. Do you think the Yaxi pads have better durable materials?

    Can't say for certain but so far so good. I've had the Yaxi since late March this year after my stock pads started to flake. I know what you mean (about durability), but I would treat any ear pads as 'consumables' (i.e. they do need a change every now and then). Much less so if it's real leather but real leather needs constant care too (at least in humid weather were I am).

    Worth the shot for $14, it's not a lot for this experiment. Worst case scenario it'll fit somewhere else :ksc75smile:

    Just bought a pair of the 99s after all of the positive chat on headfi. I'm super stoked!

    How does it sound to you?

    Dunno, it's being shipped today.

    I’ve had a pair for a few weeks now. My first impressions that they have a wayward bottom end still holds although eq if it’s available is a big help here. Without they can be a bit overwhelming for my tastes. Nevertheless for the money I think they are first rate if you like relaxed easy listening especially jazz. Think ZMF style tonality and you’re not far off. I’m only using a Dragonfly Cobalt so a beefy amp may control the bass better. On the other hand my Focal Stellias work ok with the DFC so are clearly more balanced but 10 times the price of course.

    I'm looking forward to a heavy bottom end after the clean sounds of the 800 and 800S.

    They certainly are a warmer sounding pair of headphones

    That's what I'm counting on.

    :astonished:
    Oh, 10x for the $.... very interesting comparation !:astonished: By the way, did you try the Meze Empyrean? How is the Focal Stellias vs Meze Empyrean please?
     
  15. walakalulu
    I know I know - but the Stellias are closed back whilst the Empyrean are open. I haven’t tried them as my open cans are Stax which I’m happy with.
