Does anyone know the dimension of the headphones? What pads will fit for these? Does the Brainwavz XL and Dekoni audeze fit?
The wooden cup that holds the driver is approximately 102mm or 4 inches in diameter. I have a pair of Dekoni Choice Suede (audeze) on mine currently. They "fit" but with a slight overhang.
I was pad swapping so I took off the adhesive and opted to slide the pad into the slit that held the original on. That being said, with the first pair (Dekoni elite fenestrated - audeze) I used the preapplied adhesive and that was fine as well (unless you have long hair - might get stuck/pulled by the adhesive?). Original pads were terrible IMO, way to shallow to where I could feel the driver resting on my ear. Didn't like the muffling of the fenestrated pads, the Choice suede are great and the elite sheepskin are great as well.
I should also add that the yokes do not really rotate the amount I would like with the audeze pads being angled. It ends up putting a bit of pressure on the back of my head if they are resting a certain way. Not a deal breaker, but a consideration nonetheless.
Thanks. I entered the drop of the audeze dekoni pads and got the velour ones. Hope they’ll fit well. Do you have a picture of the phantom with the dekoni pads?
Ill probably get next the sheepskin and suede pads from brainwavz cause they’re much less expensive.
The Brainwavz XL is a bit large for the Phantom, however since pads are stuck on, fit is flexible and I have used them with XL pads.
101 mm pads should fit perfectly. Aliexpress has lots of deep angled pads at all diameters in several materials.
My Phantom has some nice deep angled pads in sheepskin which may be ZMF Eikon. They fit perfectly and - as a XL fan - I much prefer them for both sound and comfort.
What mods did you do to the headphones? I have mine and I only changed the earpads (which indeed were terrible), remove the foam above the drivers and remove the metal grill itself.
Hey sorry for such a late response. I didn't do much to them.
Also you don't need to remove the metal grills. As much as I enjoy Zeo's reviews the metal doesn't actually mess with the magnets in the drivers. They're not nearly strong enough for that. The nylon film is what was mainly messing with the sound and making them sound muddy in their original configuration.
- Pad swap to Dekoni Choice Suede - preference
- Removed weird foam circles anywhere they were found - optional
- Removed nylon film from anywhere it was found (glued to grills and glued to outside of driver housing) - necessary
- Replaced nylon film on the metal grills with generic speaker fabric from a local craft store - optional
