According to headfi, the ZMF Lambskins for the thx 00 is "dissapointing, bass sounded softer and more bloated".
Anyone tried these?
Thanks for your quick response.
It's a little confusing, the Eikon gets the most appraisal, but the Massdrop discription clearly states the Ori fits the TH-X00's, and not the Eikon.
What would you recommend for the Fostex?
The reason for changed sound signature is the stock TH-X00 pads have a plastic disk in them that shapes the way the sound waves travel around the pads. Most aftermarket pads do now have this. However, you can rip the old earpads off of this plastic insert (they are glued on to it), and place the insert in between these ZMF (or other brand) pads and the plastic mounting ring and you will have the same sound signature overall as the stock pads, just a lot more comfortable.
Yeah they both actually fit, but the Ori is a better fit IMHO. I think some people just liked the idea of the increased surface area. They both will generally keep the same sound signature, but the Ori pads are more of an "exact" fit.
Destroying the original pads and glueing the white plastic ring unto the ZMF's sounds way too dodgy. No thank you :)
Guess i'll take a chance with the Ori's (around 70$ with import to Denmark, yikes).
Here is a post where you can see the stock plastic piece and a guy who removed it from the stock earpads:
But ya if you dont want to destroy the stock pads then it is a no go, just wanted to show what the disk looks like and how easy it is to do if you dont mind destroying the old ones.
