Personally I would not spend over $100 as I am not a pro studio that is making money. I could reskin my drums for that :)
Oct 21, 2008 05:44 pm This is one of those things I never understood about Auralex --
Great stuff (horribly overused and often misused, but that's for another thread) - CHEAP stuff - Probably the least expensive decent quality acoustic foam out there by a pretty wide margin.
Then, these MoPads (or whatever they call them) are (IMO) pretty darn overpriced...
Personally? With something that important, I'd go with a reasonably trusted name. That said - Cinder blocks work very well also. But those ones on e-bay... I dunno... It's not like it's "just foam" - And I know Auralex knows that. I don't know if the guys on e-bay know that...
Hey - I just checked your link -- MoPads aren't $120 (or whatever they were on that site) they're maybe $50. Which is still overpriced... But not nearly whatever that page states.
EDIT AGAIN: Zzounds has them for $40.

Oct 21, 2008 06:30 pm Yep, de-coupling the monitor's is a good thing. But not for $120, that site is a joke by the way. Everything is way over priced. I've used the Auralex in a few places and not even at $40 at that time. I thin they were maybe $25 or so.

But as MM stated, you don't want the cheapo one either, and just from the look of the picture I would say that is pretty flimsy looking foam they are using there.
Auralex didn't get were they are by not knowing what they are doing, so again as MM stated. You have to find a happy medium. but definitely don't pay $120 for those MoPads.
Oct 21, 2008 06:37 pm The Mopads can still be found for $40 or less. I'd look around a bit if those are the ones you want.
Oct 21, 2008 06:53 pm Those prices are AUD BTW fellas (sorry I shouldve stated). I found em cheaper...= about $95 AUD after postage which is equal to $64 US.
I do want some decent ones but yeah I was just seeing if anyone could justify the price difference.
