Great way to increase clamping force, seal and therefore reduce bass leak (improving overall response)?
Get some gel pads! Got black gel pads off BHPhoto they finally arrived today. Said they were in stock a month ago but then mysteriously were on back-order for ages after I ordered...grrrr
Annoying getting them on, but the track i A/Bed before and after swapping pads = definitely hear a difference.
And feel one. The phones don't feel loose at all now, I could wear them for days on end. And I wear glasses with a fairly wide frame.
Only downside is a they're a bit cold when you first put them on, but no problem after a few mins
