Are the Elex pads exactly the same as the Clear pads (but in black)?
I am a bit confused as I heard or read somewhere that the quality was not as good...
If you look at Headfi‘s review, Jude says that they are the Elears with Clear Pads so I’m pretty sure they are the same but in black as you said
The are similar in setup, fenestrated microfiber, but the quality of the microfiber is slight different between the Elex and Clear. The Clear pads feel more premium. The Elex pads however are still very good and comfortable. As far as I've seen, Focal no longer sells the Clear pads by themselves and the pads for the Elear and Utopia are different than the Elex. My hope is Massdrop will offer spare pads at some point since no other OEM replacement exists otherwise.
