Absolutely. The difference is quite surprising. Less bloat, more comfortable with a lovely rich sound.

 

The pads I found were designed for StudioSpare M1000 headphones, which is essentially the same thing. They're oval so a bit of a stretch on one side, since the cups are round. However, they do go on although I couldn't get the lip of the pads into the groove - too big. So i stretched them right out onto the cups and made a little hole where the plug goes in.

 

The sound is WAY better.

A few.

Just received my HM5 pads!

 

They fit perfectly. The bass tightened up, and eliminated the bloat that was there before. They are big, so much more comfortable. 

 

Also, I think the soundstage widened a bit, since the pads are deeper.

 

Overall, a must have mod for 17$

just ordered my pair of HM5 pads...

 

But I'm still looking for velour pads for the CAL2!

 

Will the "Beyerdynamic EDT 250 V Velour Ear Pads" fit?

(http://www.thomann.de/at/beyerdynamic_dt_250_ohrpolster.htm)

 

or maybe the Shure 840 pads, because they fit on the HM5, so maybe they will also fit on the CAL2

(http://www.thomann.de/de/shure_ear_pads_for_srh_940.htm)

 

or is there a better option?

 

Ayone with velour pads on the CAL here?

 

I know that the sound might be influenced, but otherwise as soon as it's getting hot here in europe the next weeks, this might be a good option...

 

THANX

The Shure 840 pads would be a better fit than they beyer pads I would think. There has to be a little leeway with the pads because the cups are more rounded than oval shaped. It might be a good experiment for someone to try.

With the CAL 2? Or original CAL? Sounds like a worthwhile upgrade...:)

Thanks :)

I can confirm with both CAL and CAL 2 that the HM5 are a much needed comfort improvement. It benefits CAL2 more than the original in terms of isolation and SQ.
