for those of us who have already recieved this, could you comment on the quality of the earpads please? are the earpads genuine leather? if they're not then i'm planning to upgrade them to the Dekoni pads if/ when they become available on Massdrop again. also if anybody out there is using cables from Moon Audio, would you comment if the cables fit the E-MU Teak please? the Silver Dragons V3 that I have currently fit both my Oppo PM-1 and AudioQuest NightHawks perfectly.
The pads are a egg shell protein based material similar to the fostex th-x00 variants.
I would wait until you get them...and then decide.
pads really change the sound sig...
I have the Nighthawks and had the PM-1s. How would you compare the E-MUs to those headphones? Also, what are you driving them with? Cheers.
i'm not good @ using audiophile terms but i'll try... the PM-1 is my first TOTL cans when I got into this hobby 2 years ago and I still like the sound. I would describe the sound as "lush" and I really luv how comfortable they are when I'm wearing them. I would describe the sound of the Nighthawks as "listening to a pair of large speakers". I like the bass on the E-MU teak and I would describe the sound as "fun". I use Woo Audio WA22, WA8 Eclipse and Chord DAVE and all 3 cans sound great with them. i especially like the synergy between the Nighthawks and DAVE.
Very helpful, cheers. The DAVE looks like a world-beating piece of equipment -- an audio altar!
