Replacement pads are hard to find outside of ordering from either ultrasone or a dealer.

Pads are stuck on with double sided adhesive.
Yet, the only one that stuck well for me was the one used as body tape for women(I posted few pages back).
Personally, I do not really like the new pads being so stiff inside.
I may try to soften them a bit by compressing them.
I really really like the original pads but the adhesive is gone from opening them too many times.
I have not seen any replacements that are not OEM.
I was lucky to get mine on ebay when they are sometimes available.
These are the headphones that slaughtered the Oppo PM1 I owned once.
I currently using the Audio Technica esw9LTD in meantime,
and these two are my top current portables headphones...
At this level, many newcomers will come and go, but these remain.
The only TWO other I am interested as a top portable are:
ED5 Limited (wood)
Oppo PMx2 (mod)
Yet is still is unnesessary to look further than this,
As few headphones reach this level (sig pro, esw11 too).
Especially with my simple "ed5-like" mod which acually give balance to those that think the treble a bit too much, by blocking some direct trebles, without altering frequency response.
Yet any other materials may change the sound.
My choice of the zino pad material was due to its (mostly) sonically transparent material.Edited by Maxx134 - 8/28/15 at 6:19am
