Am I the only one having a problem with the smell of the faux-leather ear pads ?
I've washed them twice, dried them carefully, still that mix of foam and plastic smell.
You may say ears are supposed to ear, not smell, but that is a concern for me.
I've read the Angle Pad from Lawson were nice, but may modified trebles.
Any other options ?
Alpha pads ? Perfume ?
I had a pair of D2000's that stank due to the previous owner smoking around them or whatever and what I did was place the entire headphone in some Tupperware with a box of baking soda, sealed them and let them sit there for a few days. The baking soda obsorbed quite a bit of the smell. Didn't completely take away the odor but it made them much easier to use.
FYI do not pour the baking soda out just cut open the top and leave it in the box so it can do its thing. And I really liked the Alpha's on the D7000
