I cut it 3mm across, but due to the way I am bending the pad, it shrinks to ~2mm when I let it return to its original shape.

What's this about "Pre or post facelift" earpads?

Interesting that, that little bit of porting can make a difference.

Original DT1350 apparently had a headband with cushion glued to metal headband frame and thinner/smaller pads with arguably more headband pressure but that may be due to the pad change. The facelift included straight and coiled cable versions with larger ear pads and the headband construction that has the cushion held on with rubber wrapping and again arguably less headband pressure.

Thank you so much. I'm going to check if it will fit the pelican 1170 case now!

For anyone who is randomly cross shopping these with DT880Pro 250ohm, the soundstage is completely different. I own both pairs and use them on my Schiit Asgard 2. I would say the DT880s are flatter and the bass is more neutral. The 1350s have some extra sauce in the bass department and have some touch of brightness to them. Typically, I just use the 1350s with my laptop/travel because of the low drive required but I really enjoy them amped, ALOT.

I just ordered two pairs of EDT 1350 N pads from Beyer. These are the only pads I found that makes listening to DT1350 for hours comfortable.
The only thing is, you cannot clean them and they get deformed after a period of time so you need to replace them.

Don't know about some of you guys, but my DT1350 is built like a tank. I got the one with the coiled cable. Bought mine in the summer of 2013 from Meier Audio for the office and/or travel, and they have survived quite a few adventures, including a recent one to the jungle! Admittedly, the earpads take some time to get used to everytime, but after a few seconds I don't notice any discomfort anymore (probably due to the fantastic sound quality :D). These are sure to last a lifetime as long as you handle them with some care.
