View Full Discussion does anyone have an idea how these compare to the ZMF Earpads?
I am wondering if i should jump on these, wait for the ZMF pair to drop again or look elsewhere for something better for my precious Fosties.
opinions would be greatly appreciated.
You have a few options, these will sound the same as the stock THx00 and be slightly more comfier, whether you like that or not is your personal taste.
You could buy the TH900 Sheepskin from Dekoni, these give bigger soundstage and seal much better around your ear, also super comfy (not sure about sound impact since I haven't heard them personally). You could get the popular HM5 Sheepskin angled pads, which will give you much better soundstage, great seal and comfort, but reduce the bass slightly and make the sound a bit warmer (flat sheepskin take away the warmth and just give you the soundstage and slightly less bass as well). ZMF pads have had overall pretty negative impact on the sound for the X00 according to peopel who bought it when it dropped so I personally wouldn't risk it. Also stay away from velour pads for the x00, ruins the sound too much.
Also you can find some Denon pads which will fit your fostex as well, but those are very similar to the stock x00 pads except with a bigger ear hole.
