Sorry didn't see an answer anywhere, so are the earpads genuine leather or pleather? Thank you.
I wonder if anyone could help clarifying whether the earpad is genuine leather or PU (protein) leather? I believe the headband is made of genuine leather and I'm a bit worrying of peeling off a year or so later if PU earpad is used, based on my painful experience of toys. . .

The earpad is hybrid PU leather and Alcantara. (Sorry for the quality of the photo).

On going project already. The Copper and Silver-plated PCUHD upgrade cables will be available in both mXLR (for Empyrean and Elite) and 3.5mm TS headphone connectors (for Liric). Depends on the timing of supply chain, they should be available in 1.5 to 2 months time.

Maybe you should ordered your Liric and tried it out in your system to determine whether you want the copper or the silver-plated cable. Don't just assume silver-plated is always better, its can be a matter of synergy between your amplifier and the Liric.
I like to keep both around (I have both for my Empyrean) since I have several amps to plug into. Also, I sometimes appreciate a change in sound for a while with a simple cable switch. Variety is the spice of life! :wink:
Cheers and Thanks! :beerchug:

So the earcups are PU Leather, what material is used for the headband?

So if they are PU Leather - assuming that's the material used in most Sony's headphones - we have to replace them pretty often, at least every 2 years, so now the question is how much the headband and earcups replacements are going to cost?

  1. First of all, we’ve secured the ear pads to the ear cup, in order to achieve a faultless alignment of the vents. Thus proper airflow around the driver is ensured and pressure on the membrane is reduced.
  2. Nevertheless, the ear pads are replaceable. If someone wants to replace them, several options will be provided, and one of the options (may) be a replacement kit for users who want to do it themselves (with a video explaining the procedure). We'll treat each case individually, depending on the customers’ needs and possibilities

Got an answer

i applaud the use of PU "leather" - it also fits the style and other materials of these headphones better than dead animal parts. (This is the anti-Rognir in some ways)
Plastic that will be in a dump in a few years. I will take the dead animal parts. Thanks. Especially for $2000 thousand dollars.

Perhaps a leather option for non vegans? They make leather pads for the other Elite.

If the Liric can give a good taste of the Elite for two grand, it would be more affordable option for a lot of people.

Thanks!



Our XBass tech is in general liked, but our 3D spacing filter is a more polarizing affair that some people like a lot, while others won't engage it no matter what. On some recordings it does a lot though and in a way to not dilute imaging.
I can't figure why y'all company hasn't made a dedicated eq that utilizes your bass circuit. Your bass boost was most natural sounding for all headphones I had before selling ICan Pro. I've had to resort to Schiit with no idea if their Lokius can compete with iFi. Basically I'd have that active 100% unless using TH900. With the Liric 100% just to get even more then it already has.

As a man born from the Mohawk Indians throwing animal parts after killing for food is a crime never waste what another life gave you. My Grandma she still alive tie me to a post for that.

I prefer human leather myself, but really hard to come by. Plus, others really have issues with that over dead animals, better pricing too. 🎃

I'd rather eat dead animals like chicken, cow, lamb and sheep than having their skins on my earpads. But chicken burger filled with ketchup, tomatoes, onions, pickles, cheese as earpads... Hmmm yummy! I'm hungry!

Okay okay, I had to, sorry 🤣
