    You may want to try DT1770 velour pads. I have been using rhem on my T5p since first day of ownership.

    Thanks for the quick response. I actually own the 770 Pros, do you know if those are the same size pads as the 1770? From eye-balling it, it looks like the 770 pads would be too big for the T5P cup, but I'll trust you if you say they fit.

    Edit: the only reason I'm hesitant to try without getting some advice first, is because it feels like the stock T5P pads would be really hard to get back on due to their stiffness around the circumference.

    I don't know about the 770 pads. But the DT1770 pads fit my 1st Gen T5p perfectly.

    Swapping pads (either DT770 / DT1770) for velour ones will alter sound and sound blockage (a lot!). I had more luck with Dekoni (sheepskin) pads for the Fostex TH900; these are a bit bigger than the beyerdynamic ones and fit quite nicely. If you have issues getting the pads back on by using the twist method: the ring is completely removable and snaps back in place by aligning the teeth at the back end correctly, so pay attention when you pull/pry them off.

    Thanks for your reply , i have doubt because the cup's jack 3.5 terminaison on the T5P 2cond gen are not exactly the same that on the Meze's cable

    The Meze connectors are a little weird looking. This is because they have to be long and thin to fit into the Meze ear cups. The upside is that they will pretty much fit any kind of headphone.
    If you have a flush headphone jack, like the HiFiman HE4XX's, it does stick out a little, but it's fine.

    The T5p.2.and the balanced Meze cable sound like hell with the Ibasso DX 220 ! :darthsmile:

    The Meze cables are mono 3.5mm, while the T5p.2 are stereo 3.5mm. One have to make sure the contacts are in the same sequence, otherwise one may drive the T5p.2 with reverse +/- polarity with the Meze cable. It will still sound but with phase reversed.

    I don't know ,
    if it is phase reversed what happens ?
     
  13. borrego
    reversed phase: just sounding weird, most noticeable with acoustic music.

    So, you are saying that Meze's balanced cable is mono? That seems pretty odd.

    On the contrary it doesn't sound weird at all , on tne Lee Ritenour or Pat Meheny album , it sound sublime !
