Does anyone know where I can get a pair of replacement pads for my Audio Technica A900 in Canada?

 

I've checked AT's website and can't seem to find anything. I've also checked Amazon and the only seller I could find there doesn't deliver to Canada. Where can I find a pair that will ship to Canada?

 

Thanks.

Your best bet is to contact ATH service in the US, I was looking for a pair of WS55 pads for my S500's and the Canadian Authorized Parts centre in Quebec wanted $15 each plus another $12 to ship them two provinces over.

The guys in the US were buying the exact same pads from ATH Service in the states for $6 a pair plus $4 shipping, quite the hosing we get up here...

So I contacted ATH Service in the states and could buy them for $6 a pair plus postage. They were out of stock at the time due to the popularity in the S500 thread and I never followed up on them.

How would I go about contacting them? That website is a mess. I can't seem to find a centralized email address that I can write to.

Well a quick Google brings up parts@atus.com from this page here.

I made some edits to my post about the Shure SRH840 ear pads for the Akg k240mkII headphones. Thanks to Punnisher for recommending them here.

No problem. Glad you are liking them. I'm excited that Shure is offering the pads because they are some of the highest quality pads I've used. Especially for $15, you can't go wrong.

I'll be buying the srh1540 pads soon, so I'll post an update on how they sound with my various headphones.

Anyone know where I can pick up some gel ear pads/cushions online for some DT770 premiums?

You're getting some DT770's?!

 

The pads are discontinued and very hard to come by. They pop up in the classifieds maybe once every 3 months, if that.

Yeah, I picked em up for $150 in the classifieds. :D

I'll keep an eye out here. I know they're discontinued. Just wanted to ask around on the off chance anyone had any info on where else besides here that I might be able to pick some up.

Anyone has any experience with 'cheap' pads, are they lesser in quality or the same

 

Or

 

The pads are practically the same but have 'brand' attached to them are more expensive?

 

Thanks.

Cheap pads are made of crappier pleather and foam and are generally more uncomfortable in my experience.

Anyone see that MP4 nation now has a thicker version of the HM5 pad available?  I have a pair on order to try on my Q40 and/or HE-6.   Look interesting and $23.50 a pair.

I saw those, I love the old HM5 pads, I'm sure they're extremely comfy with memory foam!
