Nice job!!

I'm modding my SR850 right now, and it came to my mind that I didn't post my pads. Well here they are! Three layers of velour plus a lot of cotton inside those. Really comfortable! I owe you pictures with the headphones assembled. Those'll come later. Sorry for the poor quality, I don't have my camera ready right now.

When I was making my leather pads I tried using cotton but it wasnt actually all that soft so I used cottonised Polyfill, and oh boy, it's a very simillar feel to the pads on sony's XB-series phones. ( mabye not as soft)

Well polyfill is certainly an excellent material, when used with a sealing cloth as the leather you used!! Velour doesn't seal, polyfill sounded horrible... no bass, shrill highs, it was really ugly. But cotton in velour is 90% comfortable as polyfill yet keeps the bass and sweetens the sound (compared to the stock vinyl pads my samson SR850 -superlux HD668b OEM- comes with)

 

Well, that's another combination to try in the future, leather + polyfill.

Has anyone tried using seat cushion foam for stuffing? It seems like an easy way to distribute it evenly inside the pad. I just got some high density foam and started making pads last night. I'll post pics once I'm done.

Hadn't considered that actually. Anyways, since when do people clone superlux products? :O

Here's something I have been working on. It is a combination of leatherette for isolation and cloth for comfort. I am still experimenting with different fabrics to see which works best.

 

I have also drawn out the patterns so I will be releasing it once I finish the other pad, along with process pics.

Personally I used the leg pieces off second hand synthetic leather pants and filled it with polyfill from an old pillow. buying materials new is a real hassle.

For stuffing.... if You want to try memory foam (good isolator, veeeery comfy) there are memory foam pillows at IKEA that can be used for many pairs of earpads, and the price is not that high like other memory foam stuff.

That's a good idea. Have you used it before? I would be interested in using it but am afraid of the pillow's thickness. I would have to fillet it down to a thinner pieces before cutting circles out.

 

I'm also curious of how well that foam isolates sound.

Sorry, haven't been on in a while. The material is called 'minky'. I wouldn't advise using it on head phones that are going to see much use (hence the v700) it can become matted from sweat and holds heat.It does feel nice though tongue.gif
