good job, they look great with those pads
What's up Oppo? PM-3 overdue for update. Improved treble, user serviceable pads and wireless option.
They don’t read this thread
Nicely done! I saw that amazon sells the same pads in leather for a few bucks more. Maybe I‘ll get them soon and try the same as you did!
Yep, I saw it, but decided to go with cheap one for start, did not found that anyone have done this modification before and $27 is not so much to try, leather variant is around $50, so almost twice more for test (=
I think next year I'll do the same - leather should improve sound a bit and should be more sturdy.
Yes most likely so, but felt good saying it on head-fi anyway.
I once emailed Oppo UK for PM-3 replacement pads, they sold me 2 pads when I said I could replace them myself. They were not on their product page then. Pretty expensive too. Paid more for the synthetics + postage than what the above leather ones cost.
Now I got the angled sheep leather pads from Amazon. They sound exactly the same as the ones I bought from Alixpress but they are much more comfortable as the Memory foam is quite softer, so if anyone wants to upgrade the pads and also care about comfort you should invest a bit more and grab the Brainwavs from Amazon and not the ones for 8$ from Alixpress.
Which earpads did you exactly buy if I may ask? From what I've searched there's a few leather earpads from Brainwavz in amazon. I don't know which one would fit the PM-3.
This is the angled sheep leather pad: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01J53WTUQ/ref=psdcmw_13880181_t2_B00ZY8PGJI
And this the same pad but with synthetic leather: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00ZY8PGJI/ref=psdcmw_13880181_t2_B01J53WTUQ
I guess they have the same sound and are as comfortable. It’s just if you want leather on your ears. If you don’t care, take the cheaper one
Just take care to order the angled version for greater soundstage!
Edit: oh, and I completely forgot: „welcome to headfi and sorry for your wallet“
Thanks! As of right now still pretty new and I mostly lurk in the forum. And as for my wallet they're still fine, for now that is. I don't plan on getting new cans soon since my PM-3 is pretty nice already.
Same for me. Loving my PM3‘s in combo with my modded Calyx M
Shocking, absolutely shocking news. Who saw this coming? The end if a dynasty. Think I might purchase myself a UDP-205 or two and put them away for a rainy day.
