So I may have to find the right ones elsewhere.

 

Maybe you can contact http://www.mp4nation.net/ and ask if they have some spare original HM5 pads. I can't find them on their site anymore.

Hmm, maybe you're right. You could always ask MP4nation, I guess.

Anyway, here are the original pads, not the thick ones:

But people swear that the Dt770 pads are even better.

I have the Beyer pads you're talking about. They're nice, but not as comfy as the Brainwavz pads. Besides, the bass is not as punchy in the velour pads. For country, acoustic jazz or classical that may be a plus. For rock or electronica, not so much.

Anyway, tastes (and ears, and gear) differ and maybe you should try both before deciding.

Are you sure? The pads in that link have the same price as those memory foam ones. They used to be a lot cheaper.....

Thanks for the info hoichi.  I was reluctant to pay to much for the beyer pads.  As you all said I will ask mp4nation and will let you know what they tell me to clear things up.  Thanks guys!

Hello. I have small problem with my GMP 8.35D. On the right side the adjustment mechanism is a lot more loose than on the left side. It is a lot easier to adjust the cup also very often is closing by itself. There are screws between the adjustment mechanism and the headband. Can I tighten it up by myself? It is not a big deal but it is annoying to have to adjust the right cup again, almost every time.

AFAIR, the non-foam pads used to be priced per pad, not per pair like now. Anyway, here's the link for the foam version:

http://www.mp4nation.net/brainwavz-hm5-thick-memory-foam-earpad-suitable-for-large-over-the-ear-headphones-1pc

Same price but different pads, as you can see.

You're welcome. Yeah, better be safe and ask them, I guess.

Might be a white plastic tip inside one of the cups coming off the end of the steel core of the headband. BTW, for all the build quality, those plastic things (HDPE, I guess) are held by lousy drywall screws. Or maybe it's just the screw getting loose so there's too little friction. I don't remember how exactly that mechanism works :confused:

It's not too hard to pry a cup open, just avoid using sharp tools or yanking the inner part too far, 'cause it's attached to the driver and you can damage the wires if you're not careful.

True. They were 8,50 USD each, makes 17,- USD a pair. Not the 22,50 they're asking now. That's why I have my doubts.

Ok guys, this is the answers I've got from MP4nation:

 

Quote:

The Brainwavz Replacement Memory Foam Earpads - White is new version and is a little smaller than the Brainwavz HM5 Spare Earpad. Unfortunately, we do not have this in white color. However, both will  fit the Brainwavz HM5 headphones.

 

I asked what they meant for "smaller" and I've got this in return:

 

Quote:

 The internal dimension of The Brainwavz Replacement Memory Foam Earpads is 110/90*75/65*28mm.

 

So I still like the white ones but don't know if they will ruin the sound of my hps or not hahaha.
