Still learning the sonic differences
A few months ago I decided to try the Dekoni pads, the least expensive I could find. I had heard many people give great reviews, so took the chance when they came on sale. Very comfortable and as such made the music experience much better with my AK-T1ps. The AK's can be ruthlessly revealing to the point that many consider them bright. The basic pads didn't remove any of the detail, but took a tiny bit of hardness out of them. Now I have the Elite Hybrids. Even though these are open back phones, the Elite Hybrids seem to give me more isolation and an even greater focus in the sound. The velour keeps them VERY comfortable and the inner leather with its design has helped make them even less strident, yet all the detail. Can't recommend them enough and have even ordered a pair for my HD700s. High Recommended
Would recommend to a friend.
