Following the success of its premium ear pads for the Massdrop x Fostex TH-X00 and TR-X00, Dekoni Audio has expanded its lineup to include ear pads for the Fostex T50-RP and TH-900 headphones, too. These pads provide a breathable, cushioned, enveloped feel for hours of fatigue-free listening, while leaving you with enough isolation to enjoy your favorite records. Under the outer layer of comfort, the YM80 memory foam has a super-slow rebound time, adhering to every curve on your head and blocking out unwanted sounds. Plus, since everyone at Dekoni wears glasses, this was taken into account when designing the pads. Swapping them in is easy: Simply take the plastic ring off your existing pads and insert it into your new pads before installation. To learn more, check out this Head-Fi review.
After careful design and testing, Dekoni has come out with a fenestrated version of its popular elite sheepskin ear pad. The company found that the fenestration (or perforations) of the ear pad allow for a cool, comfortable fit, as well as improved acoustic properties. The soundstage is tighter due to the increased absorption of more early reflections before the sound enters the ear. This allows for less phasing and a truer sound. Dekoni plans to release other pad models in fenestrated sheepskin in the future.
Dekoni has also released the much-anticipated Elite Velour ear pad, utilizing the slow-rebound, high-density memory foam it’s famous for, now wrapped in a new and tighter velour. This ear pad is cooler and allows for a more comfortable fit, as well as improved sound isolation properties over previous Dekoni velour models. Dekoni plans to release other pad models in Elite Velour in the future.
