yes and I will bug you once more. Must try these pads on your HA-S500. My rating was a stuggle between my HA-S500 and the FXD80 but I wll tell you right now the dynamics and sound using these pads. Unfortunately the M-50 be too big for the HA-s500. It transformes the HA-S500 from good to out of this planet great using these pads. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ear-Pads-For-Audio-Technica-ATH-SJ5-DJ-Style-Headphones-Black-/261119206335? Look forward to what people have to say about the Ericksons. I am only returning the favor ericp. You got me on the HA-S500. Even though you haven't heard how they truly sound.. People don't belive in just how much your headphone can change for the better with proper pads but trust me on this one. Worth every cent. Not to mention more comfy.. Try them you will thank me later.
I think Danny got these pads too. Wouldn't you agree Danny? On the HA-S500 with these pads?
ericp, are you not on the ath pads crew?
I believe my tastes in sq are pretty close to you and Ds. Let me tell you when I switched to these pads, I haven't gone back. These headphones sound righteous with these pads on. Get on board my man!!
