Delivering exceptional planar magnetic performance for an accessible price, the Drop + HIFIMAN HE5XX is a pair of headphones that does a lot right. To make it even better, Dekoni is offering four different pairs of earpads for fine-tuned comfort. First up is Elite Sheepskin, which provides excellent isolation and supple softness. Second is Elite Fenestrated Sheepskin, which features small perforations to improve airflow and soundstaging for a cooler, wider-sounding experience than Elite Sheepskin, with slightly reduced isolation. Next is Elite Velour, which uses a tight velour to better mimic the behavior of traditional leather to retain bass and isolation—all with the comfort and coolness of velour. Last is Elite Hybrid, which features an Elite Sheepskin outer ring for isolation, an Elite Velour face for a soft touch, and an Elite Fenestrated Sheepskin interior for the widest, most transparent soundstage possible. All options are filled with slow-rebounding memory foam for a gentle, plush feel that lasts.
Note: At checkout, choose Elite Sheepskin, Elite Fenestrated Sheepskin, Elite Velour, or Elite Hybrid earpads.
When you take soft, supple sheepskin and wrap it in dense, slow rebounding memory foam, you increase isolation, comfort, and soundstage. On the Elite Sheepskin Earpads, sheepskin and foam wrap create a tight-but-comfortable seal on your head—even if you wear glasses—to ensure that discerning listeners have a great headphone experience.
Designed to be cooler than any other offering the Dekoni line, the Elite Fenestrated Sheepskin Earpads use small perforations to improve airflow while delivering the same exceptional comfort as the Elite Sheepskin models. This design also has the added benefit of helping to give the headphone a cleaner sound stage by reducing reflections of the direct sound before entering the ear.
A true MVP among velour options on the market today, Dekoni’s Elite Velour Earpads use a tight velour to closely mimic the behavior of traditional leather. This allows for more bass frequency retention and isolation than most velour earpads—all with the comfort and coolness of velour.
A blend of Dekoni’s best materials, the Elite Hybrid Earpads and it represents the pinnacle of the Dekoni brand. The Elite Sheepskin outer ring improves isolation, while the Elite Velour face provides a soft, velvety touch. Add in Elite Fenestrated Sheepskin on the inside of each earpad, and you get the most neutral, transparent sound possible.
