So then, if you had to replace the pads, how hard was that to do?
Plus, yes, believe me I KNOW those HD 201's are complete ****. My M50's should be arriving Friday so that will be great. :D Too bad my new keyboard with a volume control on it won't be getting here for almost two weeks. :/ Two day delivery my ASS.
It's pretty easy. Just pull of the old ones and put on the new ones. It is somewhat of a tight fit, but it's no big deal.
And lol, two weeks is no big deal. Actually that reminds me, I use autohotkey to bind volume up and down to unused buttons on my keyboard. Pretty convenient if you don't have volume buttons. In my case, volume up is insert, volume down is delete, but they only change the volume when scroll lock is on. So I get volume controls and still get to keep all my keys. Plus I make use of a totally useless key. If you want the script I'll post it here for you .
*edit* rofl is it bad that it took me a good 10 minutes before I realized that didn't say AS5? (arctic silver 5)

i recommend the fiio e7. computers are noisy so it's best to use an external dac. it's fairly cheap too
I mildly disagree. Onboard doesn't suck, but it's not great either. I've tried decent soundcards, even a emu0404usb and yes they are cleaner etc but it wasn't a big enough difference for me to NEED to upgrade right away. My onboard still sounds good. The dac just added that extra cleanness. I'm not saying don't upgrade, in fact im planning to upgrade soon. What I'm saying is, I've been happy with my onboard for the past couple years since I built my computer (oh...I guess I'm not supposed to say that around here...mods plz don ban me ). I've been planning an upgrade since then, but haven't gotten around to it (I was going to build a DIY dac).
As for computers being noisy, yes it's true, but plug them into the back of the computer and that gets rid of any annoying buzzing you hear.
(I will say, my laptop onboard does suck though, but that's because it was designed for business, not personal use ).

Yea, I wouldn't suggest keeping them were you need the cord to be stretched all the time. Wear them where they're close to the 4ish foot range of the source (unstretched length of the cable). The coiled cable is nice so if you have to reach something it can stretch, but it's not good if you need to be far away all the time. You may want to get a 3.5mm extension cable. May make your life easier.
