Can any Ori pad owner or ZMF employee help me out real quick? I have two quick and connected questions regarding the use of Ori pads on a set of Hifiman He-400S headphones:
1. Is everything required to use the Ori pads included with this drop? In other words: If I get this drop, will I be able to use the Ori pads on my Hifiman headphones without the purchase of additional items?
2. How does one attach the Ori pads to a Hifiman He-400S? Hifiman uses plastic-ish rings to attach the pads to their headphones. These rings are sown onto the default pads and are therefore useless. How does one attach the Ori pads? With the rings? Or, is there perhaps a way without?
I am getting mixed signals about this from the internet.
You can get the ring inside the earpads from the 400S, those are the standard velour which are not glued to the earpads.
Just remove and place them into the Ori's and voila, they fit almost perfectly so much better than the HM5's.
Thank you for the reply and the clarification. The link you provided does not ship to the EU, however I can always buy them directly from Hifiman.
You already have the rings, just take them out of your earpads.
On the 400S model they tend to be glued to the earpads, so no can do.
Rip them apart, it's not hard, and those earpads are quiet shitty anyway.
I agree on your assessment of the quality, but ripping those rings from their pads is a less than optimal approach. Last time I tried your suggested method, the rings flexed too strongly and as a result lost their structural integrity. They had a fairly limited amount to begin with, but that's beside the point.
What I did instead this time, is order a pair of those attachment rings from Hifimen.
