Hi Everyone! Hope you are enjoying your pads! we've had a lot of requests for the dims of the pads so I've set some images here for you.
Thanks for the dimensions! To me. it seems strange that the outer dimensions of BOTH models are the same, 103mm x 103mm. If that is the case, why would anyone want to buy the model with the smaller ear opening? Even though it is thicker, wouldn't it be less comfortable due to the smaller opening? Just curious.
The opening size affects the sound signature. I own the X00 & 900 Sheepskins as well as the X00 Hybrids and they all sound slightly different. The outer dimension of the headphones is the same because they are designed for the Foster OEM series of headphones (TH900, TH600, 500RP, X00, EMU Teak, Denon 2,5,7k etc...) All of these have the same circular mounting ring system and thus require the same outer diameter pad. The large opening originally came out on the 600/900 and the smaller opening on the 500RP.
Different sound signature. I already had 900 fenestrated pads but got in on some X00 sheepskin, because they're supposed to be more bassy.
