Velour/Felt Pads for ATH-M50? - Page 24

post #346 of 389

I ordered the pads from sound professionals and have been using them for a couple days now. They feel great and I don't notice any sound change. To put this in perspective, I usually use these pads to listen to music from my phone and at home connected to my desktop computer. I also don't notice in change in audio leak from the pads. I can still wear them on a high volume in the office. Pretty happy with the purchase.

Just slapped on a pair of Auray Deluxe Velour Earpads on my ATH-M50 and I'm really happy with it. Couple of things that I noticed were the significant increase in sound leakage and the sound itself. The bass was a lot smaller and the highs were almost too crisp. I don't mind the leaking since this is just for my Desktop PC. After playing with the Windows equalizer settings a bit, I got them to sound just like the original pleather earpads. Extremely happy with these because to me, it sounds exactly the same and my headphones are way more comfortable.

Any word on how much, if at all the SoundProfessionals pads leak? I use these in a work enviroment, on medium - high volume so it's a deal breaker for me. Thanks.

I use them on medium to high volume in my office and they don't leak any noticeable sound. I can only hear them on high volume when I am at home and it is dead quiet. The only time I noticed a difference when compared to the original pads was when I was at home in silence and I left the pads apart with high volume. Once you have them pressed together or against your head, there is no noticeable difference between the stock pads and the velvet ones from SoundProfessionals. Hope that helps. I am still very happy with my purchase.

Alright, I went ahead and bought them from amazon for $19.99. I hope to be impressed.

I recently read a review of the Shure SRH1540 and they talked about the Alcantara pads and how they have the comfort of velour but seal like a leather pad. These pads should improve the comfort and fit of the M50's while having little effect on the sound. All shure headphones use the same size pads so the 1540's pads will fit on the m50. Just wondering if anyone has tried these pads.

Are you sure these will fit the M50's? Regardless I cannot seem to find them availible anywhere.

I currently have Shure 940 pads on my m50's and they fit albeit a bit loose but they do fit. The SRH1540 pads fit on a 940 so It is pretty safe to say the 1540 pads will fit the m50.

 

The part number for the SRH1540 pads is HPAEC1540.

Wow, it's been almost 2 months since I posted the Sound Professional pads and everybody seems to be giving positive comments on them.

I guess it's time to jump the gun, thanks everyone

I'll get some pictures when I get back home this afternoon, I've also come up with a solution for the loose pads which also brings back some of the bass. I will detail the solution in the pictures aswell.

Hello All,

 

I ordered the sound professional Velour earpads for the MTH-50 and have just replaced them today.  Gone are the old, tired, cracked pleather pads, and in come the welcoming plush of velour.

 

These things are seriously, ridiculously comfortable.  No change in sound, in fact I think they seal better than the pleather pads ever did.  No big changes in the sound of these cans.  The only thing I noticed is that the entire range, from lows to highs, seems to have tightened up, gotten sharper.  It's not a bad thing.  Super easy to replace too, took maybe 5 minutes of my time.

 

I would recommend these pads for anyone needing to replace their worn out pleather pads, they are great. 10/10

Good to know. I expect to receive mine by the end of the week. Your stock pads look, well, they look well used. :D

 

BTW, it took 5 minutes?!

post #360 of 389

I've had the headphones with those stock pleather pads for... quite some time and use the headphones quite extensively for gaming and for listening to music.  And yes, 5 minutes.  You pinch the pleather and pull, and the diaphragm/ring holding it in just slides out.  For replacing all you do is position the pads on the 'phones, put one side in, and whilst holding the portion you have in the slot with one hand, you pull the rest over and slide it in.  It's really really very easy to replace.

 

They fit like a beaut too, no gaps... It's almost like they were made specifically for the M50's. :P
