I would like to see the headphone frequency response with each set of pads. I would like a better explanation of some of the descriptive jargon. Lower internal reflections: Does this have an effect on imaging, soundstage or what? Tightening the imaging and widening the soundstage: Does tightening just mean better imaging? Wider and more focused soundstage: Is more focused just a better way of saying better imaging? Not sure of difference between this and "Tightening the imaging and widening the soundstage." Tighter soundstage: Relative to original pads? Can you send these pads to outside reviewers so we get more feedback?

its likely that it would follow the generally guidelines as far as padswapping goes. Zmf does the best description of this and more or less, it will follow the same idea. really the more porous the material is, the more bass and treble detail you typically lose. With closed that is. Open headphones don’t follow the same rule typically. sheepskin: generally has the most natural timbre and provides the most bass. faux leather, is generally under this in the warmth scale. velour absorbs so it typically brings down bass and softens high frequencies to an extent. of course all of this depends on the on the inner dimensions and depth of the pads. Deeper equals more bass and bigger circumference equals more soundstage. Tightening imaging probably refers to the imaging being more precise. I rarely find fenestrated pads that improve closed cans so i would probably stick with solid pads. Fenestrated plays better with open cans usually.

I'd be happy to make frequency response measurements for all of the pads and post images in an answer/comment if someone were to send me some :)
