I'm quite happy with the velour pads (dislike the heat and moisture from leather), and I keep a spare set because they gradually flatten, causing sound to fatten in the bass.  A wash and fluff can bring back some of that compressed thickness.

Where is the best (read cheapest) place to order replacement pads for the 650?

Hot water? Might shrink something. Use warm water. And without any soap or what not, you are you gonna wash out the grease and skin particles? In that case don't even wash them at all.

I think senn actually recommends shampoo.

After thoroughly sitting down with my newly acquired pairs of HD 600 and HD 650, I have concluded I will be keeping the HD 650...though I'm going to try and formulate some type of review and comparison for both...meaning I'll be holding on to the HD 600 a bit longer.  Reviews of these are probably tired and old, now, but I enjoy the HD 650s mainly for a lot of heavier genres (hardcore, metal, etc) and even rap, hip hop, and EDM proves to be satisfying.

Listening to the 650s out of a bottlehead crack with a GEC 6as7g brown strait base. Monday nights have never been this good!

One Way to Wash:

 

Pull pad off gently, grasping about 1/3 of the pad at once and gently pulling away. 

Use a soap that doesn't have additives but does lather up a bit, like Method Sweet Water. 

Hold it with "face side" down, so that flow carries out skin oils and salt.  

Massage soapy water through it by squeezing it from outside-inside (perpendicular to pressure when wearing). 

Same when rinsing. 

Squeeze to drip dry state.

Don't force too hard in case the foam is already starting to break down. 

Put them face-up on something like a window screen (spatter guard for skillet, or pizza grate), and dry with a fan.  

 

Parts:

 

Search for "HD 650" (no quotes) from this page: 

http://en-us.sennheiser.com/service-support/part-finder

 

And add the pad pair to your cart: 

 

 

Ear cushions

Part# 050635

Ear cushion, pair.

$46.09 

OR...

 

http://www.headphone.com/accessories/headphone-parts/sennheiser-replacement-pads-for-hd650-hd600-and-hd580.php

 

The price is about the same if you include shipping.  

But at Sennheiser, add this adapter (found using the same search) to your cart to qualify for free shipping above $50 (They are out of them so you won't have to pay the part or the shipping!)

 

 


Plug adapter Part# 092595

Adapter, 6.5mm female to 3.5mm stereo phone plug

$5.55

These 2 parts come to $100 in Australia, and they call this the lucky country.

post #12779 of 19114

Yes. Sennheiser should be horsewhipped for its price gouging in Australia (and probably elsewhere). $100 for a couple of donut pads--sheesh!

What's the general rule of replacements for hd650 pads with regular daily use? How long?
