I find the "ping" sound very annoying and cannot play if a racquet does it.

That said, I have power pads on my VCORE 89 and they do NOT remove the ping sound. They silence it a bit, but not completely.
On the other hand, PPs seem to give a little bit better feel for me, though that may be just mental.

Best dampener so far: rubber band, because it's virtually weightless.
