That's the best place to buy them.

I ordered the HM5 pads almost 3 weeks ago.I know they say delivery can take up to 30 days but I was wondering if you get a confirmation E-Mail from them once they are sent. I got a confirmation that my payment was excepted the same day I ordered them but haven't got anything since then confirming order or shipment.

 

 

Thanks

The WS55 had much more clamping force and could be uncomfortable until you stretched it out.....I never had to do so with the S500.

I think it's the way people set them on their ears. When I first got them sometimes my left ear would be sore and sometimes it wouldn't, now that never happens. If I put it on my ears a certain way I can't even feel them; I really like the stock pads. I'm going to be getting the ATH pleathers and the WS55 pads to compare though.

 

I have the HM5 pads and I don't use them as much as the stock pads.

In your order details on MP4Nation there is a tracking code.

Hey guys.

 

Reading back all your posts makes me miss my S500. Kinda regret selling it off. I can't "feel" dubstep as good with other cans.

Why on earth would you sell the S500's? It can't possibly because of money! Just recycle 2 bags of beer cans and you get the same amount of $!

I don't know, probably because I was stupid maybe.

 

lol.

 

I got a better set of headphones that pair better with my desktop setup. Through the setup S500 sounded constricted, small, and congested, a slight veil, and close to no soundstage. It sounded nice with my Sansa Fuze + E11 though. Now I'm carrying a pair of Cliptec IEMs for portable and it feels so blerh.

 

Oh yeah I guess if I remember correctly, I sold them to fund my turntable. They're not really that cheap any more considering they have to be imported.

A LOT more comfortable!!

 

The stock pads kill my head after 5-10 mins.

 

WS55 is the best compromise for bass and comfort, comparing to ATH Pleathers and probably other on-ear pads too.

so the ES700 pads are a major upgrade from the stocks?

Just arrived. Out of the box they sound brilliant. Don't know if I believe in burn in but if they do increase in quality these will destroy anything I've previously owned. Only major negative so far is the stock pads aren't particularly comfortable.
