I just got a pair of Monoprice 839, and I'm really enjoying the sound so far (as well as the detachable cable, which is mainly why I got them since all previous headphones I've owned short at the jack). However, I'm having some comfort issues with them. The pads don't leave enough space for my large ears, since they are very thick, and the headband hurts on the top of my head.
I was thinking of getting some replacement pads, and seeing if I could devise some sort of pad for the headband (trying to keep my spending down to a minimum).
What would people recommend for replacement pads, and how do I get the pads on/off of the cans without ripping them or anything?
What do you think would be the cheapest way to soften the pinch from the top of headband on my head? For now I've been putting a thick wool sock on top of my head, but I obviously can't go out in public with that. Also, I have to readjust it every time I take my headphones off. There was a headband pad I saw online for ~$15, but I think I could make something myself for free/cheaper.
