The Sennheiser HD580 Appreciation Thread - Page 93

post #1381 of 1386

Thanks to this thread, I pulled the trigger on some HD 580's I found on kijiji for $80.  So far really liking them (no amp, using headphone out on my Outlaw RR2150).  I have already boxed up my HD518's I just bought so I can return them (they weren't bad, but trying to have only one headphone of a particular type).

 

The earpads are pretty worn though.  The seller did a DIY re-foam (I wonder if he got the idea from Head-Fi) but the actual velor material looks pretty rough.  Was thinking of getting the earpads for $30 from eBay (Hong Kong seller)... has anyone gone that route?

I purchased a set of earpads straight from Sennheiser for my HD 600s.  I paid around $45, I think.  Included in the package are new foam disks (that cover the drivers) as well. 

 

The HD 580 is a premium pair of headphones that deserve factory OEM parts.  Just pay the extra $15 and buy them straight from Sennheiser.  Plus, you don't have to wait 3 weeks to have them shipped from China.

True, true.  The Sennheiser USA site won't ship to Canada, so I sent an email to Senn Canada (no online parts store) and I'm just waiting to hear back.

I called them and ordered parts instead of going online. You'd probably get your parts faster by calling.

The eBay pads fit the headphones fine, but are scratchy and smaller than the real pads. I got a refund for them and they are sitting in a drawer. Definitely buy real pads!

Thanks all for the feedback.  Ordered a pair of earpads and the headband pad from Senn today.
