Leather pads for Ultrasone Pro 900

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Hello, 

 

I've been going through all the threads, but couldn't find anything relevant. 

 

I got the Ultrasone Pro 900's a few months ago and I'm really enjoying them. I use them mostly at work through my FiiO E7. The only thing that bugs me are the ear pads. After long listening sessions they start to itch and make it very unpleasant to use. 

 

I've been looking everywhere for some leather pads for the Pro 900's, but can't find anything. I know some people have been using J$ pads, but I've read some bad reviews about them. I emailed Ultrasone yesterday and hopefully they have something I can use. 

 

Do you guys know of any places, maybe even locally in the Bay Area that can will make leather ear pads for these headphones. 

 

Thanks!

As far as I know, the PRO 550 is the exact same size as the PRO 900 and has pleather pads. Perhaps getting some replacement PRO 550 pads would solve your problem.

 

You are aware that switching to pleather will alter the sound, right? Most likely the bass will get bigger, which in the case of these cans, might mean that it will become hugely overpowering and muddy.

Thanks for the tip. I'm aware of the changes in sound, but I'm hoping it will not be too drastic. 

 

I think I will give Pro 550 pads a try if I can't find anything better.

Thanks for looking. 

 

I read that those pads cost about as much as the headphones. Maybe I can find someone on craiglist that has a broken pair and get the pads off those.

Hello! This is how I modded my ultrasones:

The new headpad was just must for these headphones as they start to put a lot of pressure in the top of my head after wearing them more than a hour.

 

The leather pads I added just for fun. They are Beyerdynamic custom one leather pads which don't fit there unless you cut the plastic thing out from your ultrasone earpads and attach them to custom one pads. I did this with instant adhesive and they've done well this far.

May I ask where you sources the customer one pads from? I've searched on google but only found UK and Chinese vendors... hoping to find someone in the US. 

Thanks!

Edit: Of course, a minute after posting this, I found them on amazon for $25:

I put Alpha pads on my Pro900. I can't link to it right now but search for Alpha pads on my Pro900 or something like that and you should find it. There are actually a number of guys who have done this or J$ pads, makes them super comfy (not that stock is bad but Alpha pads rule!).

Hi Oregonian, thanks so much for your reply. 

 

I just found your post from this past summer highlighting your Alpha Pad mod; did you take some pictures of the mod process? I understand it's probably a simple 'cut off old from plastic disk' and 'glue on new alpha pads' but I'm a bit squeamish cutting stuff apart without some guiding pictures. 

 

Thank you!

Sorry, no other pics. It is pretty much as you described and having a spare pair of stock pads made the anxiety pretty low.

Ask any questions and I'll help any way I can.
