Said rings can be found on the velour pads (not sure about pleathers). The velour pads are $10-$15 from Hifiman, you could just remove the rings. Or you can just use something else to get a bit of lift on the pads.

Much obliged! I'll take a look at the velours tomorrow and see if I can extract them without totally destroying all human life within a 10-mile radius (I'm not exactly handy). Thanks again!

You can easily remove them without destroying anything smily_headphones1.gif
Also, I asked Hifimam and they offered me to buy the foam rings separately $5 apiece.

Yep I took them from my pleather pads (my velours don't have them). I cut 1cm of the foam ring away because the HM5 pads have slightly smaller radius. With the foam rings I got more bass and my ears are now further away from drivers. Those HFM pads are quite resourceful.
