AKG k550 alternate ear pads? - Page 2

post #16 of 34

using k701/702 pads would be very bad for the k550, you would lose all the low end and make them overly bright.

That actually sounds kinda tempting... real men like ear splitting treble

So in theory, you could use k701/702 ear pads with the k550?

If you have a hoodie (or bandana, shirt, napkin, etc), maybe you can wear the headphone over the hoodle to get a rough idea of how it could feel and sound with cloth pads.

I dont think that would work, the pads are very different. And I think they use different methods of attachments which would mean you would have to glue/tape/gum/etc to attach the K701 pads to the K550.

The pads on these headphones are CRAP. They make you swet a lot from the skin and they get marked very easily. I would like to have pads like the Senn Momentum for example. They don't make you swet and are very comfy.

Previous closed cans like K271 gained A LOT with velour pads

Any updates on this?

I want velour pads :(

Anyone tried to remove the pads on these? They are so thin I don't want to break them. Looks like the JMoney Beyer pads are the same size and would like to try these on the headphone...

They come off fairly easily you just peel it back and rotate to where there is a notch in the plastic cup below.

I just tried to rotate the pads. They do rotate, but where exactly do I remove them?

post #29 of 34

Will try. But these are the worst quality pads I've seen, I mean they look and feel extremely low-end.

Gonna revive this, but I agree... the FAKE leather is not impressive... my w1000x got a WHOLE light tighter on REAL Leather pads... which might be bad on the k550, as its already very tight <3

 

Still Me no like Fake Leather, makes ya sweat! Real leather on the other hand does not ^^
