Just listened to some Fostex T50RPs today... WOW! - Page 667

I would be interested in the angled pads. I have a thing for angled pads.

If it's for the HM5 they should fit the same as the standard "straight" HM5 pads.

They fit the T50RP but require some quite a bit of stretching otherwise different methods of fixing it on.

If you take on/off the HM5 pads too often, you'll likely rip the flaps.

They are pads the that come with the NVX version of an Fischer FA-003 Clone/ Brainwavz hm5.  Angled pleather pads, these could be interesting for those unoffended by pleather.

 

I'm thinking about these guys.. $25 including shipping is pretty good.  I wish I could hear from someone who had tried them.

I would, but I am swimming in pads right now.  J$ Denon, J$ Beyer, LCD-2 modded, Shure, Hifiman Velour, Hifiman Pleather, stock...

I just found em only a couple days ago... I doubt anyone has tried it out just yet.  I would say it's safe to assume the sound will be very similar to FA-003/HM5 pads they are based off of.  For obvious reasons, they will not sound the same since the depth due to the angle will be different.  Additionally, there is no way to guarantee they are the same type of pleather used in all the other clones of the Fischer original.  I will probably order a pair, however, since I never tried any of the FA-003HM5 pads or their revisions, I won't be much help comparing them.  I always felt my t50rps had better soundstage with a slight angle.  By the look, these have a pretty steep angle.

Wow this is brilliant. I was just about to post about getting new pads for my T50RPs. The Shure pads are not big enough for my ears.

I was looking at the Beyer pleater, and the Beyer Gel pads. Are those Fischer pads comfortable?

Edit: Wow those look niiiice (and theyre quite cheap). I'll probably order them later today.

I haven't ever tried them, but I've heard the Beyer gel pads are the best you can get for seal/isolation. I imagine that would result in some pretty good bass.

I'm leaning toward the HM5 pads. They look like they can fit my huge ears better. biggrin.gif

I just dismantled an old pair of Sennheiser HD205 II's (that have been laying in the closet unused for years) and stole the headband pad from them. I attached it to my T50rp, so now they feel as good as they sound. I was about to purchase a headband pad from this same headphone online and then I remembered that I have a pair that I don't use anymore. 

 

EDIT: These are definitely very comfortable now. :)

Just waking this thread up with a couple pictures. Notice the headband pad...

Would the t50rp's be fine from a portable source such as the cowon z2?

They may sound OK with the Cowan, however, the Fostex really bloom with a more powerful headphone amp. I originally drove my Fostex with an iBasso D10 portable. I thought that was pretty good, however, I now have a Project Sunrise II, and I could never go back.....in fact I will sell the iBasso D10. The modified Fostex and the Project Sunrise II are an amazing combination. Of course, that combination requires a DAC.

Would a fiio e11 be sufficient?

It'll do fine. I power mine with an E17.

There's also the silly voice in my head that says after I've transplanted these drivers into the COP, I should try an open backed Sennheiser next...
