I recently purchased some audio-technica at-701's and at-703's. It's basically the same headphone, just a different color. I mainly bought them for the looks. On a side note, they sound fantastic over 100 hz or so. I'm hoping to pick up some of those SFI drivers and see how they sound in there. I'm looking to update the pads to cups, but I can't find any in the size I need. They are roughly 80mm wide. There are a whole bunch of other sizes on ebay, but nothing I can use. So here's the question: does anyone know of any headphones that have roughly 80mm (outside diameter) cups? If there were some AKG ones that would be fantastic, as I have seen tons of replacement pads for those.

I have the AT-705 and AT-713. I don't know of any replacement pads. Roll your own is probably the best option. The ortho thread might be a good place to ask. There have been quite a few posts on replacement pads and DIY.
The t50rp pads are thinner than my w5000 pads so it probably rules out that out if he's looking for depth.
To the OP, they might be a little big (if I remember they're about 3.5 in) so you'd have a little hang off. It's weird that your baffles are only 3in as most AT headphones are either really small(portables) or about 4in in diameter(full sized).

My AT-705 Manual states for pad replacements that they use the AT HP-15 replacements . Not sure if this helps. If you happen to find replacements please post so I can order a few pairs. Mine are new, but for down the road it would be nice to have some.
Please tell us what you end up doing .
