For those who have used the Elite Hybrid on the Elex, how do you like them? I assume they'll result in a marginal bass boost over stock, which is my objective, but I wanna make sure it doesn't make the treble annoyingly bright at the same time.

I assume you're talking about the Dekoni Elite Hybrid pads with velour, fenestrated sheepskin on the inside, regular sheepskin outside. I have an Elear (same drivers, supspension, etc as Elex, just different colorway/stock pads) as well as the Elear, Elex, and Dekoni Elite Hybrid pads. Elear pads are weird: super laid-back upper mids, too much bass, etc. Elite pads are better, but not by much. My recommendation: use either eq or warm source pairing to bump up bass/smooth treble on Elex with stock pads, save up for a Focal Clear

A while back I purchased some Dekoni fenestrated sheepskin pads for my Elear. I thought they brought out the somewhat sunken mids a bit. Will the Elex pads make my Elears sound like Clears? ;-) ;-) Realistically, I suppose they would probably sound like the Elex. What would be the advantages of the Elex sound profile over Elear? Soundwise, how would these Elex pads compare to Dekoni, to Elear pads? Lows, mids highs? Detail retrieval? Soundstage? Neutrality? Musically?

Is there any proof of internal dampening? Seems the quote is referring to dampening schemes between pads, not headphones. Just curious because I haven't come across any evidence since they launched, not even in the modding communities.

Yup that was my impressions as well, when they referred to tweaking the internal dampening scheme it was with the inside of the pads. If you look at the Focal pads, they all have a unique type of inner ring. This is one major reason why none of the Dekoni pads made for Focal headphones give the same sounds as the Focal pads - as none of the Dekoni pads adopt this design within the inner ring of the pads and instead they just wrap the entire pad in the same material and design as the outside of the pad which changes the sound. A common misconception is also that Elex Pads = Clear Pads minus the colour.... they are pretty darn close to the same but colour aside, they are still ever so slightly different in how they are manufactured. Still close enough for me though :) I know there is one user on here that always brings up the dampening when people compare the Elex to other Focal headphones, but I don't think they are aware of what Will really meant when he referred to dampening adjustments. I think he is Mattis something - but I am 99% positive its just the internal dampening on the inside of the pads that is adjusted from the Elear and Elex... I know for a fact that the Elear pads are nothing like the Elex and are very basic. I changed my pads on my Elear and it's a totally different sound.

Different, the elex pads are the exact same as the clear pads and the elear pads are not as soft as the pads on the elex and the clear

Grabbing a pair even if they don't match the color of my set of Clears, good price for basically the same pad.

That’s the estimated shipping date, we’ve given ourselves a generous buffer and I (unofficially) expect they will be shipping much sooner.

How long the pads last? I mean why do I need another pads? I just got the Elex like a month ago.

I'm not sure how long the pads last, as I've also only had them for a month, but if you use them often it's probably worth getting these. I think the main reason people are getting them is because we don't know when or if Focal will agree to do another production run of these specific pads for the Elex. After this drop, we may have to wait even longer than a few months for another. That, and these are much cheaper than the official Clear, Elear, and Utopia pads. Supposedly, the Elex and Clear pads are essentially the same except for color, which is another factor because the grey colored Clear pads do not match very well on the all black Elex.

The Clear pads use a nicer, more plush fabric, they aren't 100% identical. Audibly they are close enough to be interchangeable, though. I use them on the Clears and leave the white pads in the box.

So the non-discounted price is supposed to be $100? Really? Is it so it can look really good discounted at 40% and yet still sell it for $60? Personally I haven't seen ear pads for any other headphone in this price range selling for more than $89 full price, the Dekoni fenestrated sheepskin. These must be very, very special.
