I'm considering an attempt to make a set of earpads for my pair. Has anyone tried something similar by chance? Any opinions on material for the outer bits of the foam for the inside? I'm trying to use the Alpha Pads as reference, as I'll be going for a large set over over-ear pads that block out sound efficiently.

Anyone interested in a stock, never modded, pair of Mikros 90, PM me.  I have three and will let one go at my original purchase price $70 (Amazon).  Current price on Amazon is $80, Newegg $90.  Original packaging, etc.

This is just TOO annoying. The pads are coming off with regular use (less than a month). Never had it before with any of my headphones.

Find yourself some of this E6000 Industrial Adhesive on either amazon or eBay and follow the instructions.

It's rather cheap as you can buy it in small tubes.

They're brand new, less than a month. Never took the pads off, NEVER. Regular use.. (e.g listening to music).

What screws? I don't see any.

I'm looking at a combo of suede and firm leather with a foam core at the moment. I was looking at sheepskin but $30 for material for my first project seems like a bit much. Also I recently found out that keeping the sides of the pads stiff can give a much better seal, after putting two of those rubber "livestrong" type wristbands

around the cup where the pads meet the plastic. Also helps with the issue of sliding pads. Shop drawings incoming.

I think the low price set by the online stores such as newegg and amazon has definitely made the Mikros 90 being underrated!

But then again its our gain when the sale price is so low so I shouldn't really be complaining.
