A little on the rough side, not the most comfortable pads. Sound is different, not enough time to give a good opinion on it yet.
Bass is still very present and overwhelming but not in as fun of a way… kind of blown out, just switched back to the leather pads… and everything is right in the world again. Comfortable and the bass is fun again. I would say these pads are not good. I’ll give them some more ear time but the little I did wear them I could feel and hear a notable downgrade.
the material is to scratchy, just listened to a jazz track and it sounded much better. Ok maybe first impression was overly bad… new song came on and it sounds much better, Bass is still “mushy” yet impactful. Mids are more forward and highs are also brighter. Song I’m listening to currently:
Just listened with the leather and it is yet again much better with the leather pads.
Also I now need magnetic pads on all my headphones, it is amazing how awesome it is to swap pads with these.
