Success! Another convert! :)
Those were exactly my first impressions of the pads without any burn-in or whatsoever.

I just went back to the original pads after lots of use with WS55 pads to see if there would be any difference, and man the stock pads make everything sound so muddy and the bass super boomy, and they're really quite uncomfortable compared to the WS55 pads.

 

The WS55 pads make the midrange a little too up front for my preferences, but I'd rather have shouty vocals than boomy bass and muddiness. 

 

For all those considering purchasing a pair of S500s, the WS55 pads will be your best upgrade. Guaranteed.

 

Compared to the stock pads the bass is no longer boomy but precise and punchy. Witchcraft?!
Give it a try, they are totally worth it.

 

Spread the S500 + WS55 love ❤

Oh man.. 

After doing the cork mod and listening for a few more days, I've fallen in love with the S500.

They're not perfect, but I use the S500 more than any of my other headphones.:smile:

Me too, they're always around my neck or on my ears. Super convenient.

Agreed with the convenience. Normally, if I need something that portable, I'm going to want something bassy to go with it. Perfect fit!

I love my S500's so much that I strapped them with a pair of pads that cost 2x more than the headphones themselves :D

$30 ear pads for a $60 pair of head phones. Hopefully these are more than worth it.
