I have, with the permission of John Grado, ordered the original flat pads and will have them by mid October. Pre-orders will get them for $25 a pair and they will sell for $30 when they are in stock. These are the exact earpad used by Grado Labs in the past. I will have 650 pairs of them (that was the minimum folks!!!) so we should have them for a long time. Call to pre-order.

i just called and placed my order. it'll be interesting to compared to my own sets of nos flat pads.

my order was $25 + $5 for shipping priority mail. i'm excited to see how this is going to turn out and i'd just like to say:

IT'S ABOUT ****ING TIME SOMEBODY DID THIS.

Both Todd and Grado Labs must be making out well on this. $30.00 for three cents worth of foam cut & shaped in a certain way...

Sweeeeeet.

Ordering at least one pair...maybe two if I can afford it. They'll be more sexy than my yellows pads

The bowl pads cost $15 new anyways. $25 is a bargain if the flat pads they are selling are the real deal.

I'm sorry to ask, but does he have a website, because I just can't find it

Awesome! I'm going to pre-order two pairs even though I don't have any Grados at the moment. Now if Todd can just convince the Grado family to bring the HP-1000s back.

Thanks Eric! I've preordered 2 pair as well. One for the HP-2's and the other to be hermetically sealed in a mayonaisse jar!

Very cool. Now I don't understand why HeadRoom never did this. Heard something about a 2000 pair minimum order IIRC (way more than could probably be sold), but 650 is pretty reasonable. I'm definitely getting a pair to try out (vwap vs. TTVJ!). Never got desperate enough to try listening with my original flats, which disintegrate all over your ears and face if you wear them.

Outstanding!

It's great someone was able to get them and it's great to be able to support him for taking the chance.

I'll take 2 to go.

I was within 2 weeks of having these made but its a good thing I haven't placed the final order yet.

Headroom will be making out nicely, but things are not as they seem fewtch. If you look at your flat pads you will see that it is actually two pieces of foam laminated together. It looks to me as if the 2 sections are molded seperately, laminated (heat fused), then die cut. That means 2 molds and one die has to be made.

They are available through "Todd The Vinyl & Headphone Junkie" one of our very own.

It’s great that someone finally took the risk and put up the Cash to see this venture through. For what the Flat Pads do for the headphones it’s well worth the price he’s asking.
