Looking for ear pads replacement for ATH-700PROMK2

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hey guys,

I am looking for a more comfortable ear pads for my 700PROMK2. I have searched around and people said the DT770 gel ear pads are good, like these http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/580539-REG/Beyerdynamic_900799_Gel_Style_Ear_Cushions_for.html , but too bad as you can see, they are no longer available. I am wondering if there is any other good suggestions? Oh and I do wear them outdoor quite a bit, so please suggest the ones that more on the sound proof side! :) Maybe I have a big head, but the headphone clamps on my head and it is uncomfortable after awhile of listening. Please let me know and thanks in advance! :)


Regards,

HC

The key measurement is the diameter of the ear cups or driver housing. Most over-ear headphone diameters are 100 mm, some like AKG K550 are 110 mm, some like Sony are oval. You'll find a few suggestions in the alternative ear pads threads.

I checked but it doesn't have anything about ATH-700PRO MK2. Also, I have no idea what the diameter is for my headphone.

You'll have to remove the ear pad and measure first before you can take the next step.

So I found out it should be a 90mm headphones.. now what?

So most 100 mm ear pads should fit, e.g. Beyerdynamic DT770. If you want a low cost alternative have a look at the Brainwavz HM5 from mp4nation.net though although they are oval they can stretch over a 90mm diameter. Whether it's too loose I can't tell you. Another oval possibility is Shure 840.

Thanks for your help though!
