That would be awesome if you could post some pics. 
They are over ear; not on-ear.
I have been scouring this site for hours looking for a way to replace my momentum's ear pads with slightly larger ones but to no avail. I am wondering if anyone has heard of something that might work, just any leads really. Unfortunately it looks like my only option is going to be DIY make your own pads or get different headphones. Which is frustrating because they are just a few millimeters too small.
Are the pads that can be put onto the K545 the same as the ones on the brainwavz hm5?    On the hm5 thread users reported that some shure velour pads fitted the hm5. I wonder if those would also work for the 545 too. Mr. Speakers should come out with his alpha pads for a lot of other headphone models. Those look so damn comfortable!   edit: Actually looking more into it, there is probably a good chance the alpha pads would fit the k545. On the mp4nation, the reviews...
Just saw this movie called The Internship and of course being a member of headfi I ended up paying more attention to the headphones than the storyline. But I couldn't figure out what these were so Here's a video where the actor is wearing them: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=thltImlAYww
As a newcomer to the audiophile world here I still don't have an amp. So would you still say the akg k545 sounds better un-amped compared to the momentum? The momentum is only 18ohms which I know is low, but is 32ohms still low enough to be un-amped?  I also wasn't very impressed with the momentum's isolation, is the k545 better in this aspect?
Darn, they have the k545 at a best buy near me, but they don't have them on display to try on :( So now I have to decide on either momentum or k545 without having tried the k545. I know it depends on my personal sound preferences, but, would you go with the k545 or the sennheiser momentum's given the choice?
About to get some new IEMs around $100 to replace my sennheiser momentums as my portable headphones. I tried the etymotic hf5 but the deep insertion was very uncomfortable for me, do you think the re-400 will be more comfortable? 
Maybe sennheiser momentums. Stylish, very light, only 18ohms so your iPod/phone will power it fine. I wouldn't say the isolation is great though, it's enough and with 75 percent should block out your surroundings but there is better out there is terms of isolation. Comfort may also be an issue if you have larger ears.
I had the etymotic hf5 and found them to be very uncomfortable. I have a bit of swimmers ear so I need something that won't go far into the ear canal (like hf5). But I do want them to have decent to good isolation. Need to be under $100 and I would prefer them not to be an over the ear cable design. The shure se215's just look too much like hearing aids to me.   I have been looking at "the list" and I think it comes down to something like: -Hifiman re-400 -HiSoundAudio...
