Did anyone else receive their pair with the earpads seemingly on backwards? Mine seem to be thicker at the front and thinner at the back, which is unlike my 600s and 650s...
Bump to hope you get a response, that would drive me nuts no knowing if they are backwards. Guess you could try and swap em if its a better fit would imagine that is sen intended direction lol
To answer my own question, they weren't backwards, just weren't properly seated, and the plastic cover on the back of the pads is slightly off centre, which seems to be the root of the problem. Pushed them in good'n'tite, and now they're all fine!
How did you properly seat them? Just like any other pair, or was there something funky going on?
Same as any HD6xx, there is a plastic ring around the centre of the back of the pads that has to be pushed in to a matching channel in the driver housing. It pushes in firmly but does not lock.
My 58XJ pads were slighty poorly manufactured so this was harder to do than normal but still doable.
