    Tricky headphone, I see. I am currently evaluating if buying a pair to mod it would be worth it or if I'd be better off waiting for something like HD820s. I already have Brainwavz angled pads and HD600's pads (and HD600s too). Looking for an upgrade over HD600s. Damn, this hobby..

    Joined just to say thanks to @Hands for all the groundwork that's been done on mods for the Elear. Picked up a pair a couple weeks ago after auditioning them and loving the energy and bass of the headphone, but started to notice the recessed area in the mids as well as a bit of strangnish in the treble. So far I've got the HM5 angled pleather pads on and it's improved the mids, subdued the bass a bit and seems to have added some air to the sound. Sound preference wise, the treble doesn't bother me too much, but after a long listening session yesterday my ears are a bit fatigued, so I've got some 1/4" foam on the way to try out in front of the driver.

    Thanks again to everyone in this thread!
