Makes it feel new again. Though the pads last very long - it still feels great to have a fresh set.

I agree. But it is still :)best to get stock pads for replacement

And I agree with that. The stock pads are awesome.

"Best" is too strong a word. A better word is "safe". The brainwavz angled velour pads are very comfortable, and do not change the souls appreciably (to me, at least).

I'd say they make it noticeably better o.o I was getting pretty weak bass with the stock foam pads, and the sound is decidedly v-shaped with the angled velours.

Sorry, I don't recall. Gilly, did you cut out the center material on the angled velours?

I suggest you to check out this page and also my discussion. This is excellent webpage full of useful information: https://diyaudioheaven.wordpress.com/headphones/measurements/brands-a-i/#comments

No, but I did remove something similar which should be fairly obvious after reading this post which I'm not going to elaborate on due to potential warranty issues and my status as a sponsor :ph34r:

 

Gotta say though...I heard T90 drivers transplanted into a T70 body today at CanJam Europe which made me realize that even with the afore-un-mentioned mod and angled velours, I'm still missing out on a bit of treble considering what the T90 drivers are capable of. So I may very well do that, although I'm afraid it might leave my drivers feeling a bit naked :blink:

Ahh, got it. I was able to remove the pad provided by beyerdynamic, then I put the angled pads on. 

 

I never heard of anyone called the T90 light on treble. Most would say the treble on most beyerdynamic cans are hot. 

 

BTW, I'm really looking forward to CanJam Rocky Mountain and listening to the T1G2.  Might just have to bite.

The mod for the T90's that I really like is to remove the cloth ring separating the ear from the transducer and place it behind the transducer in the ear cup. The black side should be towards the transducer and the grey foam layer should be on the ear cup's side, facing the ear cup mesh. You can find on YouTube how to dsassemble a T90, T1, T5p etc. as it is all done the same way.

Well, it's not exactly the same. The T90 and T70(p) come apart the same way as the DTxx0 headphones, but the T5p and T1 come apartslightly differently. It's the same process, but the locking ring is designed differently and is a bit harder to pop out. The driver baffles are also seated much deeper into the cups than the T90's, you really have to persuade them to come out sometimes by turn the cup around and smacking the driver side of the cup onto your hand to get them to pop out. It's pretty frustrating sometimes.

Ok, not too hard at all. What's the effect on the sound?

Improved soundstage depth, less edgy trebles, more background nuances audible. Listening pleasure grows overall.
