They are super comfortable.


That said, do you want pleather or velour for the 770s? All but the 32 Ohm 770s come with velour, not pleather. Pleather will give you a little better isolation, more bass, and potentially cloudy bleed into the mids. Velour will change the sound minimally from stock. They also have Hybrids that are pleather outside, perforated pleather inside, and velour where it touches you. It's basically halfway between the two in sound changes as well.


I have all of the variants of the HM5 pads except the angled velour. All (but the angled pads) are +/- 1-2mm in all measurements.

What are you using the angled pleathers on and would you recommend them? I'm planning to get a pair for my Soundmagic hp150's.

I'm not using the angled pleather HM5 pads on anything right now. I have Lawton angle pads that I replaced them with.

I was wondering if these were worth trying...


"King Size DIY Bass Plus Ear Pads Cushion For Grado SR RS PS MS Series Headphone"




They look like HUGE on-ear donuts. Might stick with my Ear Zonk G bowls...
