Outer. I heard from Zhang at HiFi Man. Outside diameter is 10 cm., the perfect size to fit NAD RP-18. I'll is double sided tape. Theyre only $10. I want to see if the velours will soak up excess bass from a previous modder's efforts.

Oh, and thank you for the measurement photos. Nicely done with arrows.

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.

 

Incoming:

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

 

Already equipped:

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.

 

Cheers,

K

I would like to know your opinion on the HiFiMan velours with the DT880's when you get them all settled in.

I used to buy one from this store. 

100mm ear pad, with cloth for covering driver unit already. 

 

Seems it's a worth deal, as they are free shipping to US.

Brainwavz HM5 pads on the Ultrasone HFI-780's

 

 

 

Very soft so the driver sits closer to your ear providing a little more bass over stock pads.

do you think they can fit on the momentums? or are they too big?

Hey SD!

People here put them on the JVC HA-S500's... biggrin.gif

As far as the Momentums go I don't know what size the driver bases are, if the beyerdynamic DT250 velours would fit them then I'd say these would. I had the velours on the 780's for a while but didn't like the sound change.

These are $18 from mp4nation with free shipping so you can't go wrong if they don't fit. Easy to sell with lots of S500 owners looking for them. biggrin.gif

I picked mine up from the FS forum here.

Hi guys, anyone knows if there are some velvet ear pad that fit on the CAL?

Maybe, sennheiser HD 485 or Shure 940?

post #57 of 326

Great stuff!

 

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?

 

The diameter is the same 4'': http://www.amazon.com/Genuine-Replacement-Cushions-SENNHEISER-Headphones/dp/B000KPU4RE/ref=sr_1_77?ie=UTF8&qid=1372601962&sr=8-77&keywords=headphones+velour+ear+pads

 

 

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.
