As I said, the Shure pads won't stay on because they're lip isn't as thick as the HM5 pads. Unless somebody's Shure pads are different than mine (which are currently living on my Takstar HD5500s). The HM5 oval shape isn't much of a problem... it stays on fine. The K545/HM5 combo is my daily listening set at work.
