Fenestrated sheepskin pads make the 58x's come alive!
After a brief initial honeymoon period with my 58X's I found myself using them less and less, opting for the much fuller sound out of my T50RP's with Brainwavz angled sheepskin pads. To me, the Jubilee's with the stock pads sounded meh - a little dull & somewhat uninspiring (TOO airy?) in comparison. The fenestrated sheepskin pads totally changed that though. Low end is significantly improved, mids are crisper, and the highs are tamed ever so slightly, which is perfect for my somewhat treble sensitive ears. As a bonus they're also more comfortable since the additional depth keeps the drivers off of my ears.
I'm tempted to deduct a star because of the cost, but at least they're cheaper than Dekonis & shipped relatively quickly. It would've been nice if Drop offered some sort of discount if you bought the 58X or 6XX, but it is what it is.
I listen to all sorts of rock, country, and anything with really good vocals.
