I don't know what Dekoni are thinking but you can buy a genuine leather jacket for the same amount they charge for some of the pads.

Often leather prices reflect the quality and craftsmanship that go into producing the piece, not the physical amount of leather you get.
Has anyone heard these with HE-6 or HE-500?

I'm using the hybrid with my HE 500 and love them. So much more comfortable than stock velour, similar level of detail, a touch more body but overall keeps the same core sound signature.
I just got a pair of these in sheepskin. Does anyone know of any easy way to remove the crackling sound that happens when I put the headphones on. I believe its because the air is being pushed out through the driver when the ear pads are being compressed. This didn't happen with the original pads where the air could maybe escape through the pads instead of out the back of the headphone.

You need to do the furniture mod described here: https://imgur.com/gallery/ZXc05 just scroll down until you find it :)
Hey everyone! Here's some measurements fresh off the rig. I'll extrapolate further what's going on but here's a start.....

Here's a comp of just those 2. Please note, I moved the crossover point from 500hz to 200hz because they are most similar in that range so it makes it easier for comparisons sake to see the difference in dB. TL;DR - the graphs are closer together and more accurately reflect the differences in frequency and not overall level changes. if you want a higher res version feel free to email at tal@dekoniaudio.com. I am about to leave the house though to go to a museum so I may not respond for a while......

That is really helpful! Could you do the same for the Sheepskin and Fenestrated Sheepskin? Drop is not up atm but I assume it will be back again!
Would these fit the Sony XB950bt's?
Hi Dekoni, Do you would post a image pads with the rings? The rings already came installed in the pads? Thankyou,
Joe9000
11 weeks late but they do come with rings, thought on my pair, i had to twist it in the ring since the he 4xx has slots where the ring connects to it and one was about 45 degrees off.
r the Fenestrated Sheepskin angled?
tranceman
The pox on dekoni’s site show them angled. I can’t seem to copy the pic but have some linkage https://dekoniaudio.com/product/dekoni-audio-fenesrated-sheepskin-earpads-for-select-hifiman-headphones/
It's not clear on this drop...do these pads in fact fit the 400i and the 400s?
Trying to decide about this drop. I have & love the 400i. I would like to know if/ how much the various pads would chance the sound. Does anyone have an opinion? i haven’t seen any graphs, and am concerned.

My spelling really is inexcusable!

The seriously scary thing is that I knew what you meant, and still miss-spelled it the same way!
What is the recommendations for the HE4XX?
Load 6 more comments
I would suggest the perforated lambskin, they are comfortable. But like Joeb1kenobi said, if you have not heard the stock HE4XX, wait till you get it and try. If the stock sound good to you there's really no reason to throw away another $70 on pads.
I would stick to the hybrid. The 4XX already comes with a hybrid style pad so you'd be close to the original sound sig just with added comfort. The big difference however is the Dekoni has fenestration on the inside where the stock 4XX pads do not.
Size of these in mm or inches?
No Pleather version at base price... Please, add this option MassDrop. Probably many wants good pads to headphones like He-4XX and Pleather make much more sense for this headphone price.
I think it's expensive (60 usd) for a MassDrop price to go with Sheepskin. Very sad because Dekoni normaly has good quality pads with good prices (I have x00 Pleather Dekoni's on my E-Mu Teak and like a lot).
Seems odd to sale these without even having the mounting rings included as an option..
j_peace
The mounting rings are included!

Oh, that's good to know. Any chance of selling them separate for those of us that may have TH900 pads already?
From what I have seen in these Madssdrop photos these pads do not have the coupler rings to attach the pads on the can ((
Joe9000
They do have the rings included.
How to change the pads for HE4XX? Mine are really tight, so I don't even know how to start.

No need to buy the mounting ring. Its included.

There is a youtube video showing how to remove and fit the 400 series pads. You do have to use more force than is comfortable, but once you have done it once or twice it becomes easier. Just don't try it when you're hungry.
what changes will these make to the sound signature? hoping for warmer sound with less treble peaks

I have the Fostex THXXX Dekoni Elite Hybrid pads on my HE560. It does exactly what you described. :)

I bought some zmf lambskin suede ori pads for my 4XXs and I didn't like the result, so I've put the stock pads back on. I'm not very practiced at describing what I hear, but I would describe the change in sound as darker rather than warmer. I associate warmth with being pleasing but the new pads sounded more enclosed and definitely took away some of the sparkle of the highs. I guess that was to be expected as the ori pads are pretty thick, and also oval rather than round.
These dakoni pads seem to be a similar shape and thickness to the stock pads and so might have less of a dramatic effect. I would get some if I could justify spending more money on pads, I'm interested to find out. Although I'm 100% happy with the sound of the stock pads I'm not a lover of velour, I find it a bit itchy.
Hello Is there anybody out there? Just nod if you can here me. Is there anyone home?
These would be great for my HE 350s. Been rocking the stock pads for a while now and I'm getting tired of them.
Measurements?Not on Dekoni website.Was hoping to get the fenestrated sheepskin. But for $65 I would like a little more details!Oh yeah RINGS?
Joeb1kenobi
Rings included. Measurements this weekend!
tdkocen
Thank you!:-)
I am assuming these don't come with the mounting ring?
Also is there any difference between these and the TH-6XX/9XX pads? Those fit the HE series perfectly too. I have the Elite Hybrid on the HE560 and it's a great improvement for comfort and sound.

Yez, the rings are included
Do they come with angled form?
wewewho77
The main photo looks angled
Has anyone tried the hybrid vs focus a?
Has Dekoni graphed out the frequency response changes of these 3 pads vs the stock pads on any of the Hifiman headphones? They've done this with some of their other pads (HD800 is the one I'm thinking of) and I found it really helpful in making a purchasing decision.
Astral_Abyss
I emailed them, they said they are in process of this... not sure how long it will take though.
zep483
I hope they email me back before the drop is over. No word yet.
does it include the rings?
