Those look nice and roomy.

To my ears (and memory...it has been awhile since I had the Alpha Pads on the HE500's), I remember it making them warmer sounding with a smaller soundstage.  More bass impact.

 

However, the biggest difference was the comfort.  Since they are so thick, it increased the clamping force (I find the HE500's have very little clamping force with the stock pads) but also made them much more comfortable.

 

I've since swapped them out for the FocusPad-A's which I prefer to the Alpha Pads.

 

 

What I'm really waiting for is the new pads that Zach over at ZMF has brewing.  Apparently they are better sounding and more comfortable cow-leather pads.  I can't wait to try those out once they are released!

Took longer to ship from California to Texas! What the heck?  Suspect you paid more though :D     (And for the record we do consider California to be a different country).
