Hey, do you guys have any suggestions for good 70mm pads which are pleather or leather and feel nice? The pads of my TDS-5M are rather flat and I would like to try replacing them for comfort reasons. So far, I can mostly only find crappy Chinese OEM ones on google which I absolutely despise the feel of. The nicest I can find are Audio Technica ESW9 pads but I don't know about the inner diameter (which is important) or how to even order them (which is even more important). I've also searched this thread and haven't been able to find anything except for the suggestion of using Stax SR-X pads, but when I looked them up on audiocubes they apparently have an external diameter of 84mm which is too big. Thanks guys.
The SR-X pads are your best option. They're a bit too big but they'll expose the most of the driver and they're extremely comfortable.
You could also try DT1350 pads, though they are a bit too small.
AKG K141MKII pads are about the right size I believe, but I'm unsure to comfort or acoustic performance.
