Oh and one drawback maybe is the fact that there is no center felt..

 

Thanks Maxx.  I guess it is time to order some Chinese HD25 pads from ebay.

Some of the Chinese pads come with the center foam.

Yes they are super comfortable and plush and totally eliminate the issue of the original pad poor fit due to slippage or not at right spot.

They are super cheap like $7 but instead of buying from a China seller which usually takes a month,
I chose to find a local seller for 14 and got it quick..

In your opinion what's the open center pad vs stock  doing to the presentation?

I finally did the hole mod punching a tiny hole in the tape on beach driver versus removing the tape completely. This definitely helped the sub-bass and bass in general, Beck ah Shae rest sounded much improved as did Fleetwood Mac - The Chain for drums and the bass guitar riff about 3/4 of the way through the song. It also makes cellos sound Mich fuller and cello like, 2 Cellos songs now sound much batter as do more classical oriented cello pieces.

My one poor ear pad is almost 1/3 split open though so I hope the replacement pads come in soon.

Has anyone tried the pads from Vmoda M80, I also might have some velour HD25 pads kicking around.

I am almost tempted to transfer the drivers into my M80 LOL. Or even an over ear headphone like maybe a cheap over ear Sony like the V6 or something like that.

The velours fit (mostly) and are more comfortable, I may try them tomorrow to see what they are like all day. I think they have less isolation though and less bass than the stock pads.

I popped off the pads from my M80 and they have a plastic piece glued to the pads so I am not sure I want to try to separate them to test but they do look like they would fit.

I found the velours messed up the mids so decided I could peal that plastic off the M80 pads and that worked like a charm. So I am currently trying the M80 pads out. They are more comfortable so far but am really wishing I had put them on before punching the hole as they may now be to bassy. But let me try them out tomorrow and I will report back. The M80 pads fit these extremely well though for anyone interested in trying them out.

i like the LEATHER feel on the esw10....is the centre diameter larger than that of hd25? 

post #4854 of 6488
OK the M80 was to bassy and muddy plus my ear started to hurt so off they went and the originals went back on... MUCH BETTER!

So I am out of test pads and will just use the default pads torn and all until the replacements come in smily_headphones1.gif

Yes the center diameter is larger on the esw10, but that is what makes the mids distant.

The hd25 pads have smaller inner diameter which, like the stock pads have, make the mids come back.

Also, the plush hd25 pads are larger than the m80 pads.

Yes I also found the m80 pads to be too small a padding for ear comfort and looks like these also, like most pads that do fit, suck out the mids...
So the hd25 pads are best replacemnt so far.

Here is a visual on the thickness of the pads:

The HD25 pads look plush. Are they official from Sennheiser or replacements from China?
