Velour/Felt Pads for ATH-M50? - Page 22

post #316 of 388

hopefully they are better then the beyerdynamic pads

after using them for a week or two and comparing them to the stock pads i am going back to stock

 

while the beyerdynamics were super comfortable they made the headphones sound muddy 

i didnt try covering the ports though

its a shame because i really like these headphones but they sit on the hanger more than they get used because of the ear pads

 

i wish a t would make a velour pad with the same foam and backing material as the original pads

 

i actually may try those bilsom cool II pads before i give up on them and sell em

Sorry to bump an old thread, but I stumbled upon this

Wondering if anybody has information on these? Debating if I should take the gamble or not

I emailed them and they told me that they had then custom made for the ATH-M50s. No port holes underneath apparently.

Didn't buy them as shipping to Canada doubled the cost.

If you get them you could be the first to review them on Head-Fi!

anyone give these a try yet? Just picked up some M50's and need to replace the leatherette ear pads.  Was going to go with the 940 pads until pavillion brought up that link to the velvet pads specifically made for the M50.

Got these a couple of days ago. Size is equal to original pad. Sound didn't change much. Treble is a tad recessed, mid and bass equal to original.

What replacement pads would you recommend to someone who also lives in Norway, Mr. bar1?

Are the 940 pads your current favorite? What webshop did you buy them from?

I got them from soundprofessionals.com (the link in my quoted post). Price is fair and one week shipping time is not bad.

I'll be sure to report back once I have them. Thanks a lot.
Congrats on your hundredth post by the way.

hey norge did you end up getting those pads?

post #325 of 388

I haven't gotten around to ordering them yet, I'm afraid.

I'll do it as soon as I have the spare cash.

I purchased these pads from sound professionals after seeing the link on this site. I must say that I really like them. I hardly used my headphones before purchasing these pads because after 30 minutes of use my ears would swell up and sweat. After purchasing these pads, I can use them for hours with no complaint. As for the sound aspect of it, I can't really tell the difference between these and the stock pads. However, I am not an audiophile. I use them for gaming and movies and some audio.

i bought the dt250 pads and even with the tape mod, the sound was still horrendous.  i know that felt pads DO change the sound to a certain degree I just want to find a pair that doesn't alter the sound too severely.

That's what I found.  They're OK if you completely seal every hole, but if there's even a little bit of a gap it sounds pretty bad.  Honestly, the dt250 pads aren't even that comfortable.

 

I've been using shure pads for a while now and have no complaints.  I don't listen to music with them much though, I mostly use them for youtube and audiobooks.  They still sound good for music although they have two flaws.  First, they fit kinda loose, so they leak a lot more sound both in and out compared to the stock pads.  Second, you lose bass/midbass output.  I did some rough measurements a while back and found they were about flat, but had a peak at about 5khz.  Mine are the old version too, so this might not be so great for the new version.

 

If you can live with those two things I'd recommend the shure pads.  They're comfortable and so far seem to last longer than the stock pads.  (The stock pads do last a long time, they just soak up sweat and get stiff after several months).
