What pads do you have on that Lambda, and what do they do to the sound?

Oh man. I was waiting for this. Sorry Stax purists!

These are Lamda Pros.

I'm using the SoCas Pad Mod 3d printed adapter and the pads are BrainWavz angled, oval, memory foam.

In this state, these are the most comfortable headphones I have bar none.

Sound wise, and this could just be my imagination, but I feel like the imaging is better and soundstage is wider because my ears are a bit further from the drivers. I also think the extra mass and better seal gives a pretty good bass boost. I don't think there was much a change to mids, it's still 100% Lamda in that area.

I'm sure it's not what the fine gentlemen from Saitama indented when they drew it up but I am very happy with these in the current state. My SR202 Lamdas are relatively unmolested (upgraded to Sr507 Pads).

I’ve loved mine for years, but “comfortable Lambdas”? Hard to imagine, but thanks for the info! :thinking:
