Most people I know either heard 'Laurel' or 'Jerry' or 'Gary' ... no one I know reports hearing 'Janny'. What's up with that ? Is the perception of 'Jerry' vs 'Janny' also language related ? No matter where the slider is (link below) all any of us can hear is 'Jerry' or 'Gary' or 'Jenny' not 'Janny' Pehaps because the 'a' is mostly an 'ahhh' kind of sound, sometimes the 'a' is pronounced as 'èhhh' not as an 'e' which for us is the 'i' where for English the 'i' is mostly sounding as 'eye' or 'ai' as in 'ai skipper'
Going from left to right I initially hear 'Laurel'. Towards the middle it then morphs into 'yanny'. But as I get towards the right rather than hearing a very clear 'yanny' I actually hear 'yellae' (like the word 'jelly' but with a 'y' at the start). Which is how some people in Scotland say the word 'yellow' when not trying to talk the Queen's english.
'Jerry' and 'Gary' must be on their lunch break though.
If I start in the middle "Laurel" , moving right 3 sections changes to "Yeary" and to end. Again starting in middle "Laurel" moving left 3 sections continues "Laurel" and to end. However if I replay a few minutes later and start at full left I hear "Blaurel" but it's indistinct.
Whereas part of me is mildly amused by this, I mostly find the whole thing annoying and meaningless. It's like that stupid gold/blue dress from a while back. Perhaps it's because I'm jaded and sarcastic. Perhaps there's a reason I live out in the middle of nowhere.
lobalwarming: Meanwhile... stick some cotton rolls under the pad roll to fluff 'em out a bit. Or just admit you like the free bass boost from worn pads. It's what I do. Except the admitting part

Mr Trev: "few days". It's said that for at least a couple weeks. I though about Brainwavz since they make adapters for Senn. Reviews say they're 3d printed garbage tho

Mr Trev: Maybe I should say "to heck with it" and just buy a ATH-R70x. Folks claim they're like 650s, but with proper bass
Oct 6, 2021 0:53:47 GMT
lobalwarming: Or... buy from Jeff... $10 more vs many $100s more for the R70x. Not sure they have 'proper' bass - more similar to the 650s than not. And not nearly as smooth up top.

Mr Trev: IIRC when I was on Headphone Bar's site they had Dekoni pads on sale for the same price as stock Senns. I'd probably go that route before being gouged an extra $10 (honestly, how can foam and velour be worth $60 in the 1st place)

Mr Trev: I just don't know how well the sound change would go down for me
Oct 6, 2021 15:07:15 GMT
lobalwarming: With the supply chain issues... $62 for a little foam and fabric is cheap. BTW - my official Senn pads cost $64 in 2019. And well worth it. ;-)

lobalwarming: I have the Dekoni Elite Velours for the 650. Gives them a big 'proper' bass boost, so you might like them - didn't at the time, but was my anorexic tonal period. Mood and whims change - pad rolling is almost as much fun as tube rolling. For only more $$$

Mr Trev: My X2 fulfills my "bassy" needs, so I don't need to go there. I'm surprised the X2s don't get more love. They seem to straddle the "fun" and "audiophile" lines pretty well IMO

Mr Trev: One of the guys I chat with on HF strongly prefers the Dekonis over the stock pads. He seems to be the exception though, most impressions I've read aren't too positive. Except for comfort, Dekoni apparent wins that hands down.

Mr Trev: Happy Turkey Day Lobey - and any other Canadians looking in
