Yep, they're sold individually, which is odd. $17 a pair. I've had a couple sets laying around for a long time that were bought for another long-department set of headphones.
They isolate better, but that may be more from not getting a great seal with the stock pads. The soundstage seems wider too, but to tell the truth I didn't use the stock pads long enough to be a great judge of it. I should probably switch back now that I've listened a good long time with the HM5 pads and see what differences I hear.
As far as the roominess, the HM5 pads are working great for me on the K545. The stock pads are nice feeling, but were a little too close for comfort on my ears.
That fits with my general impression of the two as well, although I only listened to the P7 in the Best Buy Magnolia listening station. I liked the P7 a little more than you I think, but I like the K545 a lot more.
Those do look nice! Not too pricey either (judging from the cdjapan price). I usually like AT's sound, but my biggest question would be whether they are comfortable, which the last couple sets I got from AT definitely weren't.
Just got these in today. It's been awhile since I had the Monoprice, but my initial impression is I like these better.   The pads aren't great. I swapped them for some Shure SRH840 pads I had lying around and it improved the comfort a lot. These are a tad loose... the HM5 pads I have would probably work a little better.   They're not going to challenge my $200 headphones, but for $20 these are fantastic!
Nope, the UE6000 are back to $130 at TigerDirect where the deal was. I'm still trying to decide whether to keep mine or not, but I ordered the Amperior today, so that'll be here shortly too. Too many headphone deals are going to make me poor!
 Ya, they're $249 list, $199 with coupon through Razordog. I'm loving them actually. They are warmer and have more bass than the K550, but still have lots of clarity. Some who loved the earlier AKGs don't like the added bass, and they're still not bassy enough to appeal to bassheads, but I think they walk a great balance. So far they're my favorite of all the headphones I've owned. I just got the UE6000s too, which are very nice and I like them, but if I listen to them...
The pad couldn't be any smaller and be over ears. In fact, it's a bit too small for me.   Love the turquoise KFHph! That's what I've got.
In other news, my seller from China said my first package was rejected by China Post and he has sent another weeks later... sigh.
