Default Mushroom Knobs

Is there a replacement knob available that is still touch sensitive, but sits lower that allows for improved viewing of the LED settings surrounding the Mushroom Knobs?

To me, the best knob would be to have a knob like the one on it, but with the stem (for lack of better terms) cuts off.

I know this has been discussed before, but I can't find anything on it.

Yes,
Those knobs were also the single most unattractive thing about the Icons! Never seen anyone replace them or a suitable replacement though unfortunately. Maybe someone has done it and can reply though!

Would be shocked if there were alternatives out there. Who would attempt such a thing?

At least they're better than the S6 knobs which are tiny, bunched together and have their display behind them such that you can't see what you're adjusting.

I love the mushrooms. I think they're a brilliant design, you can see the LED ring easily and they feel great.

LONG LIVE THE MUSHROOM!

I like the caps as well, so far so good anyway.

They feel a little wobbly that's all, as you turn them...would be nice if they had a more solid feel

The thing I don't like and not sure if a different knob would be any better is that is very hard to see the LED's from:

From looking at a clock as an example:

:50 minutes to :10 minutes

Of course it varies depending on the knob and sitting position.

To me, a small recessed knob would be better, but then again, I'd probably then be complaining about it begin difficult to grab.

Yes it is from those positions....
