HiFiman HE-500 (HE as in High End) Proving to be an enjoyable experience in listening. . - Page 1196

post #17926 of 17937

I am selling a pair of Focus Pads (non-A version) in the classified section; they are in excellent condition and have seen very little use. I thought I'd chime in since I saw some interest in pads.

Anyone tried the Audeze leather pads with the 500s? I love the vegans, but they can get a bit dirty over time - I cleaned mine fairly easily with a wet rag though. I'm curious if the leather could be even better than the vegans, I'm going to order some one of these days.

Just ordered the ZMF Omni pads in lambskin after asking for @zach915m's recommendation.  

 

Now the torture of waiting for them to arrive, haha.

 

Will leave my impressions compared to stock velour, focus pads (a) when I can sit down and enjoy them.

They do not sell it piece by piece, you have to contact them through email and ask them to purchase the headband assembly.

 

their customer service email: customerservice@hifiman.com

 

should be around 50$ for just the headband assembly.  If you want earcups as well its probably around 80$, however requires much more modifying. 

 

edit:  just want to let you know their shipping is extremely fast.  They use DHL international.  it arrived to my doorstep from hong kong to california in 2 business days.

 

good luck.

That thread should answer your question regarding how to do the swap.  You have to punch the screw out and widen the hole with a small file or a drill with sanding bit which is what I did.  Be careful though.
