I also got me a HD 8 DJ. After bending the metal portion of the headband a lot, they are quite comfy. The noise thing from the joints is also easily fixed already. Will report my sound impressions later then.

Can anyone please tell me if the Alcantara pads for Shure 1540 and ATH M50x headphones will fit on the HD8 DJ?
The stock ear pads get very warm and sweaty because they aren't really thermally conductive...

Did you swap the stock velour pads? If you did and noticed the unique attaching mechanism, there's no reason to assume any other pad would fit. Unless you start sewing (well gluing) to the stock frame.

Yeah I did notice the plastic bits used for attaching the frame to the headphone....
It's sad, really, that such an expensive and nice sounding headphone gets pads this bad...

But do you think the frame in general is the same size as Shure? I could use Velcro or double sided tape to attach the ear pads, but I don't know if the frame itself would fit or be too large or too small...

Pretty sure it's smaller than Shure or most...

 

Though can't agree how the pads are bad, you even get extra velours. And my ears fit comfortably completely inside unlike many others. It's still designed as portable with great isolation so it's not intended to "breathe".

 

But hey, if there's will, there's a way... start cutting things up and report. :D

You can get breathable pads that are excellent at sound insulation... Just look at any Beyerdynamic ear pad.

The stock velours for the hd8 are great.
