Do they make an option for the HD 700 at all? I keep seeing them for other headphones.

do you also plan on making it for the Beyerdynamic Amiron Home? The ear pads that come with them are too thin for my liking causing my ears to touch the inside of the cups.
hi, is it compatible with sony z7?

don't think so.... Focal has 5 studs, think it's proprietary
elite hybrids vs fenestrated sheepskin? Getting confused with the description here where it says "Top of the line" for the hybrids and then "more neutral sound" out of the fenestrated sheepskins.

Can someone summarize what exactly the tradeoff is here? Is one objectively better than the other?
The one difference I see from these and the same pads on Amazon is that in the photos, the MD FS pads look like the foam inside is black (you can see it through the holes) whereas the Amazon pair look like yellow foam. Can someone confirm that the foam in the FS is black? That might be enough to join this drop since the yellow dots looks tacky.

It's just the shading in the image. All the foam is yellow but you can't really see the yellow through the pad unless held at the "right" angle.
The fenestrated sheepskin pads sell for $10 more on Amazon with prime shipping and returns. Not sure why anyone would buy them here... 1 month wait and no options to return them if you don't like them -- seems like a bad deal for $10 in savings. Gotta sweeten the deal a little, MD if you want to sell these.
Fenestrated Sheepskin in the way to go with the Elear pad swaps. Mids are a bit more up front and and treble not as peaky. Also, the sheepskin is kinda swank. Feels pretty comfortable.
Hello,

Recieved my Elite fenestrated sheepskin pads today and installed. I noticed one of the earpads was not the same thickness all the way around. I’ve emailed Dekoni to ask about. Another quality control issue that I’ve experienced with their pads, the other was with the same style for my Sennheiser HD 800s. Those earpads won‘t come off. I’ve included a pic of the Focal pad. Not sure if I will purchase again. Cheers.

UPDATE: 6.19.18

I emailed Dekoni and they are sending me a replacement set at no additional cost, I believe. Still waiting for confirmation and their arrival (the replacements).

Cheers!

I got some of my Dekoni stuff with the same issues. I do think Dekoni should improve their quality control if they want to become the "Comply for big cans". Please improve QC!!!! Sending replacements easily to complainers is not the way to go.
Audiowalker
Yeah, mine also look pretty amateurishly made. For the cost one would hope for better.
I would like Dekoni ear pads designed so that the outer & inner seams did not make contact with your head... it would be more of a "pillow-top" design with no visible seams.
When headphones press against your head, the ear pad collapses and presses the uncomfortable seam against your skin and is always the first thing I notice after wearing them for even a short session.
Has anyone had the opportunity to compare the hybrid pads with the fenestrated sheepskin ones? I'm trying to decide on one or the other. I'd like to improve clarity/transparency and make the Elears sound more neutral.

Well, I ordered a pair of fenestrated sheepskin pads. They seem to raise the mids more than the other options, which I think will help with balance and clarity.
Do the pads fit to the Focal Spirit Series phones, specially the "Spirit One S" which is a tiny bit larger than the others?
KaiS
No, these pads won't fit the Spirit One S.

From the description: "compatible with the Elear, Clear, Clear Pro, and Utopia headphones, along with the Massdrop x Focal Elex" and I'm nearly certain that the Spirit One S uses a different style of pad.
I just received the pads, but it did not include the pad removal tool, anyone else have that issue?

Yes, same issue.

I didn't get one, either.
