Dekoni Replacement Pads
« on: May 18, 2021, 11:43:17 AM »
Other than ordering via Amazon/some international store

Is Dekoni represented at all in SA? Looking to for some leather pad for a set of Philips Fidelio X2HR's

There is no official dealer listed in SA.

Nice! Any impressions compared to stock? I take it the low end is glorious!

Bass definitely thumps more with these

More importantly, they are streets ahead of the stock pads in terms of comfort. They were not my go to set of cans when i'm working during the day, found the stock ones scratchy after prolonged periods of listening. With these, I can pretty much keep them on the whole day.

At 1k-ish with the crazy shipping rates to SA these days, probably not something that most people will buy for an X2/X2HR

Looks good

But you forgot to mention another added benefit: It's not a lint magnet anymore lol.

Had a pair of X2's a while ago, and I distinctly remember having to use a lint roller regularly to keep it clean hehe

I had Dekonis on a pair of HD800's for a while to save the original pads. Not crazy about the super tight fit that results in distorted earcups when removing them. Sound and comfort was good though.
