Ear Pad Replacement for Ath Pro700 mk2? - Page 2

post #16 of 24

I just bought some Sony MDR-XB500 pads for mine so hopefully they fit!! I previously bought some m50 pads and they were really nice, much more comfortable than the standard ones however they have worn flat and I want to try something different!

This is the link to the Sony pads. Only $18 inculding postage!

Hah, the XB500's pads probably won't fit.

I finally got some nice m50 pads for my proo700's and they sound a small deal better and make a world of difference comfort wise!

I'd reccommend using the new M50X pads instead of the original. http://www.amazon.com/Audio-Technica-HP-EP-Replacement-Series-Headphones/dp/B00LICYRVW

No.1: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00EFD61YW

-angled
-spacious

-large

-GLORIOUSLY SOFT

 

Been soo long sice i've used stock pads, cannot give changes to sound, will say though, it is a blessing from NVX for its comfort.

 

I recommend putting flap OVER the silver, fits snuggly like that. if you put in the cut-out for the flap it will be loose, but still fits. although it's also much harder to get it in there.

No.2: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0076N9LM2

 

-not angled

-slightly less spacious

-not breathable (sweating &or hot for long periods of time)

-seal significantly better

 

Gotta stretch them a bit to get them on, but they weill fit. Take your time getting them on the first time.

 

These i can say for certain, seal in the low end. Sooo much bass. These were the first replacement pads i've gotten for these. I use interchangeably.

 

They're gel, so they are still incredibly soft, but in a different way. but also do not breath what so ever.

 

If you open up the cups and put in a couple layers of high and low density foam in the cups... well these things will become hearing protection. (gun range's 'safety manager' approved with a "Holy ****, yea those block out sound. They're good to go.") Better then ear plugs OR over-ear hearing protection, Almost as good as both of them combined.

Forgive me if this is a stupid question but I like the gel pads, but there is no back cloth to cover up the driver?  Most ear pads I see have a backing.

The gel pads do NOT have a cloth back cover, so if you do not add anything the driver will be uncovered. If your ears stick out a fair bit, this may be a issue. otherwise, should be fine.

I gotta restate my warning though, the gel pads DO NOT BREATH. if you don't intend to wear the headphones for long sessions, they'll be fine. I originally thought that, "Oh yea i won't have an issue with that.." oh man I was wrong. ears got soo sweaty.

Anyone have any other ideas for ear pad replacements for these.  I got a official Audio Technica pair of M50x earpads.  It made them more comfortable but what I'm really trying to achieve is getting my ear away from the driver.  Even though the M50x is a bit deeper.  Still not deep enough.
