OK...To keep our WS-99 thread alive...
I received my HM-5 pads today...
I wish to give props and thanks to the original poster (Somewhere in the 109 pages)...
The HM-5 pads fit amazingly well...I can even fit my WS-99s in my case still...
It did change the sound somewhat. To me the sound is more open. Still plenty of bass,
I seem to hear the highs even more. I'm assuming this has to do with the fact that the
HM-5 pads are thicker. There's one thing for certain. There's no comparison in comfort
between the stock pads and these HM-5 pads. You could easily listen all day with
the HM-5 pads where the stock WS-99 pads start becoming annoying at about the 2 hour
point. I'm really quite surprised at how well these pads fit the Ws-99s. I'll probably order another pair
to have for the distant future replacement...Can't see myself wanting to go back to the stock pads.
EDIT: I did just order another pair
