J$ Beyerdynamic and Denon lambskin pads fit Denon/Fostex headphones as well as Hifiman headphones. I would assume this could mean that other Beyerdynamic or Denon pads will also be interchangeable.
These earpads are supremely comfortable: http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_66627_NVX-XRE100A.html They do not fit the T50RP like I had hoped, but they do stretch over the Denon frame and worked very well with my D2000s. I did not test with Hifiman, but would assume that they could fit as well.
I am now a huge fan of Pad-modding.
ATHM50 replacement pad for the Koss Pro DJ100 (also incoming, couldn't resist Amaonz had them for $39)
Hifiman HE-500 velour pads for my Beyerdynamic DT880 Premium
Shure SRH 840 pleather pads on a Shure SRH440
Here the difference is very noticeable. Not gigantic but overall makes these headphones more comfortable and sound a LOT better.
Also closed 4 air vents on each driver with duct-tape which made the sound richer and fuller, a bit warmer, without any bloat.
So pads do matter.
Will report back in a week or two when everything arrived and was tested.
do you think they can fit on the momentums? or are they too big?
I'm moving in the same direction... http://www.head-fi.org/t/669866/just-reversed-the-bowls-of-my-hf-2s
Has anyone contracted a set of bespoke earpads before?
Hey guys, the Sennheiser HD 560 ear pads could fit on Samson SR850?
But, maybe it makes the sound does change, as with the DT 770 ear pads...
BTW, my CAL! with the pioneer SE-MJ5 replacement ear pads, now it feels more comfortable, and the sound doesn' change, although there is a improvement of bass...
Wow I'm glad I found this thread. Trolldragon I'm kinda worried about the hm5 pads... do your ears touch the drivers with those on there? Mine almost touch the drivers with stock pads so if the softer ones get you any closer I'm a bit worried about that causing pain. I was thinking about just making my own pads with some leather and memory foam but it's nice to know the hm5 pads are an option.
For the modders and DIY'ers, if your AKG K240 pleather ear pads are old and flat, it IS possible to bring them back to life.
If you're a stingy modder like me and have too much free time, it's certainly worth grabbing a few albums to listen to while doing this 'repair/mod'.
I just added a 2nd layer of foam. Simple. The hardest part is stitching it back together which took about 2 and a half albums.
Neither earpad came out looking good as new, but they feel fine and the baffles don't touch my ears any longer.
