Just got these today. Can definitely say they could have fit issues for some people. It's a bit of a weird, loose fit, but it's not unpleasant - it's light enough that it kinda just floats around your head. Pads aren't amazing, and if they were thicker, it would resolve fit issues for a lot of people, but somehow it manages to seal around my ears.
Don't really have much to say about the sound yet, other than at first listen, it seems completely unoffensive. That could be good or bad, depending on the person. So far I think they're a nice complement to my Sony MDR-Z7.
Also, the wood cups are fuckin' beautiful.
Edit: Tried these with ZMF Eikon Lambskin pads, and it makes the fit way more secure. Though I think suede pads might be better sound-wise, as the lambskin seems to scoop out the mids/lower treble a bit. Also, something that doesn't separate the driver quite as far from your ear might help vocals not sound as distant, so it might be a combination of things working to make the mids sound recessed, there. Nice punchy bass, though - and treble remains non-fatiguing.
It's really a shame that the stock pads aren't just.. thicker. The material is really nice, but they're just way too thin to create a good seal.
Edit: (Perforated) Suede pads turns these into a bright, sibilant mess, so definitely don't bother with those.
I just got my ZMF Auteur fenestrated lambskin pads and they were a perfect fit. A little pricey at $70, but worth it for these headphones if you need a pad swap.
Yeah, I had some Eikon pads lying around and they fit perfectly.
