    is it worth it? "diffraction be gone" pads?

    Post  washburn on March 28th 2010, 10:56 am

    seems pretty pricey for a pair of wool pads cut to size, but i am wondering if it does make a worthwhile difference ..
    I will be acquiring a pair of Reference-1 monitors soon, as they have a reputation of being "unruly" with bad recordings...

    is there anyone here that has used DBG and found it a worthwhile tweak?

    I believe Michael Perry had used those with his now-sold Ref3s.

    I did listen to them while he still had them and it did indeed help tame the Ref3's brightness.

    Just my $0.02.

    If you're handy with crafts, you can make your own like I did from felt purchased at McMaster.com, held in place with Velcro dots from Walmart for a more reasonable price, especially if you need two pairs.

    They can alter the highs to some extent, mostly by taking away side reflected highs and bringing the focus from the speakers more to center stage. The speaker grills almost do the same, if not the same, due to their framework.
