    I would agree, I found the Ether Flows more comfortable personally. Bit lighter and suspended headbands are always a win. I do slightly prefer the feel of the velour pads on the Elear but not much in it. On that note any chance you might make velour pads Dan? Would be a good tuning method for people that like different sound possibly. Just an idea :p

    I've tried a few variants of Velour pads. It killed the sound in every case. It would take redesigned pads from Dan to get Velour pads into play. Knowing Dan he's probably already tried.
  3. Rowethren
    I guess it would be a fair bit of work to tune them right but velour is way more comfortable in the summer months though, in my opinion anyway.
  4. Delayeed
    Agreed. I don't like how leather pads start to feel after a while. In winter it's more comfy than velour but in summer it can be pretty bad. I still overall prefer quality leather but optional velour pads could be a nice accessory.

    My sentiments exactly! [​IMG]

    Have anyone tried the flat pads on the flow yet?
    I didn't get mine back after the upgrade so I can't try it.

    Flat earpads will reduce soundstage and bass.
    I've tried different pads and also external rear damping on ethers but find the stock tuning to be best possible. Dan knows what he is doing better than most of us.

    But its still fun to try different things :D

    yes, I found playing with pads to be interesting nowadays, I think it will be cool if we can change the tonality based on our mood.
    I think the flat pads will bring forward the mids, which I also like sometimes.

    Interesting discussion on changing the sound using different ear pads but I can't even think about changing the sound as my Flow C's sound so pleasing, so organic - don't know what to call it; it has an ethereal quality to it that's pretty addicting...
  10. Rowethren
    Well personally I wouldn't really want a major sound change as I also love the sound of my Ether Flows. The thing I really meant was to get some summer friendly velour pads with as close to original sound as possible.

    I put my order in for a pair of Ether Flows yesterday. I must say that they ticked all the boxes for me when I auditioned them extensively this summer. I found them to be the most comfortable head phones I have ever worn. And the sound quality is about perfect for me as I am not a bass head, but I love bass. I am not able to enjoy trebly signatures like the Senn 800's, but I want to dip into more treble than I usually go for. I value midrange and vocals, but I focus more on the instruments. I love a good soundstage, but find really wide or deep ones to be distracting. I like tiny details but would rather have to focus on them than to have them pushed forward at me. And I want to be able to listen for hours. Plus they are well made and beautiful! Looking forward to having them in hand...

    I would be interested in hearing from more people who have gone from ether c to c flow. Thanks.

    I would love to eventually see velour pads. They feel great and I even think they look better for my taste. Kind of like carbon fiber and Alcantara interior in a sports car.

    An option to buy velour pads that did not effect the sound much would be very nice.. I would definitely buy them for summer use.
