Wow everyone. I see your ingenuity has been sparked by our lack of inserting the plastic ring! I will say that we demoed a few versions with and without the ring and, while there is a difference, we didn't feel that it was great enough to warrant the extended cost the ring being sewn into the pad would incur and also didn't think that the ring just placed in the back of the pad would be good enough so we opted to leave it out all together. Boy did we read our fan base wrong on that! I want you all to know that Dekoni is here and listening and, as our stated goal is YOUR listening pleasure, we are going to look into having the rings manufactured and available either here on Massdrop or on our own site in the near future. Future iterations of the pad MAY have the rings inside. We have to do a cost analysis and manufacturing analysis to know if it's viable BUT the fact that everyone here seems to be OK with the DIY I think it might be a good idea if we just included them in the box for people to use in the pads or use as coasters for their drinks. I can't imagine it will increase the cost as much as it will increase your listening experience so I'll let you know what we find.
I want to thank you all for trying our products and for giving feedback. I'm sure a lot of manufacturers don't listen but we always have our ear to the ground to hear the beat of our customers. My priority is your satisfaction and if you ever have any ideas or suggestions you can always reach out via our website and I promise to return each and every message if warranted. I hope this message finds you well and I look forward to more comments and suggestions in the future! I want to make the pads you want, not the one I *think* you want.

Thanks a lot for your response and for your dedication towards addressing the interest and feedback of the community. The Fostex TH-X00 are indeed a widely beloved product for its great, fun, powerful but also balanced sound. Needless to say, I feel it's absolutely vital that alternative pads advertised as "premium" options manage to accurately and precisely maintain the same sound signature with all of its qualities, while specifically improving comfort and ease of use of the original product. I definitely hope you consider including the attenuator ring in all future iterations of this item and tuning the pads accordingly to have the same sound response as the stock ones for TH-X00, as it would really make your offering stand out as uniquely attractive to all the owners of these beautiful headphones.

Thank you for your comprehensive response and I hope my post didn't come off as overly demanding. I would love for you guys to offer a ring insert and would definitely be first in line to buy it myself.

thank you for responding! It seems like offering the rings as an optional insert is the best option because some people really like the sound without the ring!

Hit us up on our site and I'll send a set to 10 people for their feedback. US only please and we will have to charge $3 shipping. These are not production run but samples from our manufacturer for testing. If people like them we will move forward with production.

Thank you for this. I am awaiting my THX00 and am already eagerly researching real leather replacement pads. Yours sound like the clear winners. Can't wait for these to drop again with the fabled plastic rings.

I don't suppose you can give the thickness dimension for these pads can you? I'm trying to find a deeper pad for my headphones for comfort reasons. Thank you.
