These pads are just removed and replaced by pulling. What are the replacement pads you've got?

yea you have to pull them off. and yes, you can get them back on the same way. its a little fiddly but once you get the hang of it, its easy. most headphones have the pads attached this way.

 

true, comfort isnt great. i'm using Turtle Beach pads, takes 2-3 times longer with them until it gets uncomfortable.

I haven't got ones yet, but I may get the turtle beach ones if I find them for good price.

Just noticed that Lasmex has a new headphone called H-95. It seems to be the H-75 (somic mh463) with better pads. The colors have changed a bit as well but I bet they're still the same headphones inside. Just wondering if the pads could be had seperately. On the other hand, the stock pads are OK imo.

See for yourself:

Lasmex H-95. Evidently an upgrade to the H-75, but the only visual differences I see are black accents and round / different pads. Hm.

The H-95 cups look round, they are oval shaped on the H-75/Somic 463!  They look interesting though.

post #519 of 693
Nope, cups are still oval. You have to look at the other pictures to tell.

The weight is sure different than the H-75.

I tried the Somics with Brainwavz/Fischer pads but eventually stayed with the Turtle Beach X32 pads. Though the Brainwavz/Fischer pads are very thick and comfy, they are too soft and can't withstand the clamping force of the Somics and soon enough they flatten to a state that the baffle presses against my ears, making it quite painful and uncomfortable.

Nope. Their weight is equal. And the cups are just as oval as on the H-75 . They actually wrote on their homepage that the H-95 is a "tweaked" version of the H-75. Btw. They have a different, fabric covered/woven cable. The strain reliefs are still the same ones, though.
There's a "review" from a German HiFi magazine that also reviewed the H-75. They simply copied their old review and changed H-75 to H-95. They also added that the H-95 has noticeably deeper bass that generates more pressure compared to the H-75.

Which turtle beach pads should I buy for these headphones?
The options I have are: X31, X11, X41, PX5, Z6A, X12, PX21, X42, XRay and Tango. I saw that someone was using the X32 but I didn't find them shipping from Europe. I only could find audio technical pads for $20 from the USA or 20€ shipping from thomann.
