Wait … now you have me confused.
Did you buy an Elear with Clear pads?
Or an Elear and the Elex pads?
Because if you bought an Elear and Elex pads, and are expecting them to perform like the Clear, that’s a VERY different scenario than putting Clear pads on an Elear and expecting it to sound like an Elex. Putting Clear pads on an Elear sounds mostly, but not exactly, like an Elex, but the technical performance, FR excepted, will be the same.
The Elear and Elex use fundamentally the same chassis and driver and differ primarily in their packing and pads. Putting Elex pads on an Elear sounds like an Elex. Putting Elear pads on an Elex sounds like an Elear.
But the Clear have a different driver, different pads, and are on a different level of technical performance, despite being tonally very similar to the Elex.
