And the Alpha Pads go for $60 + $40 shipping (Europe) which breaks the deal for me.

J$ are no longer made. You'd have to find a used pair, which do pop up once in a while. I've had a pair and same cost as Alphas and not as good to me.

Shure SRH840 earpads can be fitted to DT770 without modifications and retain great sound, if a bit warmer.  But why bother?  It is because the Shure pads improve isolation a good bit and tame the treble a little bit as well.  They may also make the headphone feel less "clampy" for some people.

Also, since the Shure pads are shallower, folks with ears that stick out more may find the Shure pads a little uncomfortable.

You can cut the dust covers off the to make them roomier, but it will increase the treble very slightly.

Anyone know of a good pair of velours that are 90mm in diameter? Trying to find a good pair that fit my HD424.

Maybe amperior earpads may work...? Though those are not really valour.

Amperior pads are way too small. Anyways, just got a pair of RPDJ1200 velours. Hoping I didn't just waste more money.

Are there any options on replacement pads for Denon D1001? The Creative Aurvana or Denon ones seem impossible to get, maybe the ones that fit Sony MDR-V6 will fit? Any help will be appreciated. By the way, for resellers matter and so I'm on Spain, thanks in advance.

 I permanently removed the foam backing built into the pads, and installed them on my Sextetts. Wow! These are the pads I've been searching for. These help bring out the midrange and treble and it's extremely transparent and neutral. Bass notes and percussion hit hard and deep, but with no bloat. It's hard to believe this is a headphone from 1975, because it destroys many modern headphones with this configuration. Highly recommended for vintage AKG, and perhaps even modern pairs as well. I'll test those next.

 

Punnisher you have modern Akg K240s or mkII? If you do, i would really like to hear some opinions how the Shure SRH940 sound with them. Been looking for better ear pads for my Akg K240mkII's since the stock pad's are uncomfortable for me. Velvet pad inner diameter is way too small and it presses my ear's quite badly, the pleather pad's are too shallow and the sweating is a problem.

You could try K70x velours with some carpet-grade double-sided tape.

I was actually thinking about that but not sure how it would sound with the Akg K240mkII. The Akg K601 pads would be much cheaper, around 11€ for 1 pad. Same size and very similar with the 701 pads. The 702 ear pads seem a bit different compared to the K701 pads and the price is even higher 16.30€ for only 1 pad. I would really like to try different pad's myself but money is tight.

According to one thread i read, the beyerdynamic DT 770V pad's fit the Akg K271 and with slight modding the sound was fairly good? I am not sure where i read it and cant seem to find the Thread... :confused: 

 

Not sure how they would sound with the Akg K240 models.
