    I agree Atticus love tubes. I am going to TRY and relate some of the information I have experience with my Atticus and pad swapping. I am not experience enough, nor have multiple headphones to compare to. I have the stock pads and purchased suede eikon pads.
    Equipment: Decware Taboo MKIV - Gungnir Multibit -- Decware Modded Tascam CD240
    Stock Lambskin Pads - love these pads with rock n roll ( for me mostly 60's and 70's). good for any genre where foot tapping and a boogie effect is desired. Caused by mid-bass rhythm , beat whatever you desire to call i
    Snare drum hits are faster, everything is faster snappier than with Eikon Suede Pads.
    Jazz ( Brubeck, Getz, Stanley Clarke etc) I like both pads depending on my mood. Snappy, Quick or laidback with mid level sub bass.

    Suede Eikon Pads - Do not like rock n roll with these.
    Present classical beautifully, great tone and separation. Not a classical fan but these pads are helpng me enjoy it more than ever.
    Quartets - Yo Yo Ma, Edgar Meyer, Bella Fleck, Joshua Bell, Mark O'conner etc. Whether in quartet, duos or single instruments , the Eikon Suede Pads are the one I prefer by far. More even through frequency ranges, medium amount of sub bass , no mid mass hump.
    I will learn macro and micro and other terms in the future I just wanted to relay some information.
    Eikon Suede Pads Sub Bass- its there, clear concise enjoyable just not as much gain as mid-bass on Lambskin Pads.
    I have described what I have heard the best I am able to. Hope it helps someone.

    Would any owners past or present be able to comment on which music genres they found (to their ears) worked well with the atticus and which didn't?

    Thankyou
