Sennheiser PX 100 replacement pads

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
The foam pads on these headphones have become very thin and are now becoming uncomfortable to wear.

Last week in the Apple store I tried on a pair of Bose QuietComfort 3 headphones for 5 minutes and was impressed at how my ears sank into the ear pads, they seemed very comfortable.

My question is do you think I would be able to get the Bose QuietComfort 3 replacement earpads to fit to my Sennheiser PX 100?

Thanks in advance!

Don't seem like they would fit at all.

Thanks Soundstige for your honest opinion, much appreciated.

Having had a look around this website I have found quite a few models, that may suit my needs. As the official Bose pads on their own are £30 excluding delivery, something like this may be on my shopping list in the not too distant future.

Will keep reading reviews and watching YouTube thoughts/reviews until I can go to a store and try out some gear.

Cheers!

Have been looking at various Sennheiser models with the similar style soft earpads to the Bose QuietComforts.

Looking preferably for a headphone with an inline remote it led me to the HD 238i and HD218i models
The 238i had fabric/velour type pad surrounds that I didn't fancy getting sweaty. So decided to look further into the 238i, on the Apple website they seem to get very mixed reviews and after reading those reviews it has put me off tbh.

Just really looking for decent dog walking headphones to replace my PX100s with an inline remote. The hunt continues.....

Bought a set of QuietComfort earpads and have fitted these over the worn original foam earpads as they seemed to grip better. I think in the long term I will stick them in position, but for now they seem to work ok.

Have been enjoying the softness and comfort of the pads for 2-3 hour listening sessions for the last couple of days.
