My girlfriend has been having the old comfort problem with her FC300, so I decided to pick these up. 

 

http://www.ebay.com/itm/331167188732

 

First off, they're an absolute PITA to get on, but very doable. The lip behind the pad (the one that goes holds the pads on) is absolutely cheap and plasticky. They were far too loose at first and made everything sound tinny and the driver baffles rested against your ears. Bad seal, bad sound, not good. 

 

However, after stuffing the inside with a rolled up paper towel they're pretty great. They seal properly and don't move around any more. Wider and more airy stage, more sparkle in the treble, more detail overall. Bass is still deep, but a touch less boom to it. Also, the ear cups effectively become a full over ear design. Much more comfortable than the stock pads. A very nice and cheap mod.

 

There are a couple of cons. The sound may be too bright for some; think a similar sound to the AT house sound. Another con is that they can sound a little bit cuppy and cavernous, but i don't find this to be a huge issue after adjusting. Best of all, the girlfriend is happy, and that's what really matters anyway. :p

 

Hope some of you can try this and report your findings. I'll post some pics if anyone wants some.

These cheapo pads still not large enough to cover ear..

But looks promising that the Onkyo does not get worse with pad change,
Only more neutral.

This can is more preferable to me than both the Mikros90 and the akg545/shure pads, but the bass is different on those so need more comparison soon.

I wonder about those pads on this one now..
Will see later today. .


Could you tell me how to remove the pads? thanks

Sure. You just put a finger under the lip (between the mesh and the pad) and gently push it outward, working your finger around in a circle. As long as you're not rough, you shouldn't hurt it.

If anyone wants a patch on the connector issue, I put rubber grommets around the connector and no long have connection problems.
