  1. So I run out of Stax Sigma replacement earpads. Are replacements still obtainable?

    Get your game on!

    Anyone playing No Man's Sky here? https://www.nomanssky.com/living-ship-update/
  3. I was comparing Koss to Sony ECR500 and Sony surprisingly still sounds very good. I would say not as good as Koss, but very liquid with lower end authority and good soundstage, and this is with default "sweaty" pads. This makes me think that new pads on Sony will make them sound better and make them that much more comfortable. Anyone know how if someone makes pads for ECR500? Maybe Vesper Audio can do make them? I think SR-007 style pads would work. Spritzer, did you ever swap pads on ECR500? What style worked?
  4. How much do these angled earpads go for? Now I need to look through all of my cables boxes to see if I still have that koss to stax adapter.
  5. Out of the box and based on my somewhat fuzzy memory of the original set that I had these sound a bit better with a bit more lower mids. Pads are not very good but, and it's a big but, they are not sweaty like the original pleather shit. Where can I get nice angled pads for these?

    Looks interesting. If reviews are positive I am getting a pair.
