Are the earpads available separately for the ATH-W1000X? Mine have become perforated and not fit to use. Has anyone replaced theirs before - is it possible to do so ?

 

Thanks

Should be available from audio-technica directly; if not, Japanese exporters on eBay.  Rest assured, it is possible to replace the pads like most headphones.

I haven't needed to change my pads yet but people replace them with the leather pads from the W5000 which are still in production. I've been toying with the idea of getting a pair because their suppose to be comfier.

Thanks. I didn't realize the W5000 ones fit the 1000x. I'll search for em.

I set up my W1000X for sale.
They have a good 11 month warranty left.

Cheers

Recently I bought a used w1000x and since it's my first closed "high-end" headphone,

I wanted to ask you how others closed do compare like the D7000.

I'm still not sure if I like the sound since I'm am used to open headphones like my hd580 or k702.

But I keep listening :)

I lusted after the W1000x for many years until I got a pair cheap as their were being phased out and at first I was disappointed in them as I expected so much more. My first impression was that they didnt have that much bass for a closed back, but reading this thread I learnt that you have to bend the headband in to force more clamping pressure on your head, this works.

 

The only other closed back phone I have is the Denon D2000 and while not high end shares similar sound traits to the higher Denon/Fostex range, namely, thumping bass and high highs. The D2000's have more bass than the w1000x but sound bright and can be sibilant on some tracks and dacs & amps. I do find myself more and more just going to the W1000x they sound really good with most things, a good all rounder but maybe lacks a little bit of excitement.
