Dekoni ? Best replacement pads for the Meze 99 Classics?

more_vert
Which replacement pads are the optimal choice for the Meze 99 Classics? The standard pads on the 99 are too hot around my ears. I much prefer my Shure1540's cool and breathable pads--> what is your recommendation? The Dekoni looks good, but I have no experience with them. Thank you.

You can try the Elite Velour pads from Dekoni; they'll be cooler (temperature-wise). Keep in mind that Dekoni calls it "velour" when it's really a lot closer to microfiber (not necessarily bad). Also, changing pads can make a really noticeable impact on sound quality (good or bad).

You could go with a hybrid: velour on the surface that touches your face and sheepskin or some other material all-around. It's my usual go-to choice if I can't get away with fenestrated sheepskin.

I forgot about the hybrid pads. Yes, those are an option definitely worth looking into.
