The AKG K550 Impressions and Discussion Thread! - Page 139

post #2071 of 2074

They look like they get stuck on by an adhesive ring. I really don't like the thought of doing that with my K550s. I have already bought a replacement pair of ear pads but I paid the price and got the originals.

 

I go on public transport quite often with my K550s and I feel I would get stared at even more with those huge ugly ear pads!:D

 

They may well improve the sound though and a little more impact to the bass would be nice if they help out with that.

I had to return mine the stock ear pads weren't thick enough for me. My ears would touch the driver very uncomfortable. Sound wise I didn't see the investment to change the ear pads. In general I think it's a bad idea to change ear pads on a headphone stock ear pads are design for just the right amount of clamping on the side of the head if stock works for you then great.

are K550 genuine pads available on amazon.com?

 

I ordered a pair from their but they turned out to be third party generic pads. they get attached but accentuate treble a lot. I see there are lot of options but I am not sure any one is legit. I am located in India and have no other way of buying them.

I don't know about amazon.com. There was only 1 place in all of the UK for me that sold genuine replacement pads for these. I got told this by the Hi-fi store I got them from.
