That's not what I ordered then for today.

£3.92 per pad, plus free royal mail postage. Tracked delivery was quoted at £10.

Anyone wants the phone number to get the WS55 pads can PM me. They had 29 in stock, I ordered 2 so it's 27 now.

Oh and Black S500s are much nicer than the Gun Metal ones. I think they look chromey and cheap.

That is the correct product name.

Anyone that wants their details can pm me.

As far as I know they will ship International too. Not 100% on that though, when you choose the phone options you need to go to International sales. As it is a UK phone number you will also need to dial the UK code if you live elsewhere.

Ugh.... I can't even find the WS55 pads in Japan! Yes, you read that right... in AT's home country... I scoured Rakuten.co.jp and yahoo auctions and couldn't find any. I have however found AD2000X pads and many other AT pads. I'm not sure which ones would fit the S500 though. I assume the AD2000X earpads are way too big, but perhaps they could work well with o-rings... 

Thoughts?

 

Edit: This doesn't really have much to do with the S500, but is there any surround virtualizer that I can download on my pc? I recently sold my laptop that had dolby home theater v4 and I miss it terribly. The surround virtualizer definitely did improve the soundstage. Any help would be much appreciated.

you want fake surround sound?

Arrived a few days ago to me too but I have not yet had the chance to try them out for good.
I can only say that connected to my FiiO E10 with bass boost enabled pull out all the grit they have, with bass boost disabled become little more flat.
For the trance are fantastic (keep in mind that they are still new have not even played 10 hours).
Great medium-low and ultra-low good. Mid-High a little gloomy but nothing to worry about.
The only problem is that on the box it says HA-S500-B headphones and instead are gunmetal ... mah!

Yes, it might sound stupid, but it actually works very well. Dolby Home Theater V4 also has the volume equalizer (or whatever it's called.., I forgot) which works like an amp by boosting the sound nicely if put on the lowest preset. Ever heard of another program that does surround?

Possibly this might be of use: Foobar2000 Dolby Headphone Config.

 

I use RPG's "forward' config and love it.
