Same for me. I really love silver / black combinations...

I got my Brainwavz HM5 pads today, and they really aren't big enough to fit the HiFiMan headphones. They do fit, very tightly, but they are stretched. The foam isn't dense enough, so they feel a bit odd. I'll see how they break in for now. I might just find the original Beyerdynamic leatherette pads. I know they fit, and I know they're good.

I have been wanting to swap out different ear pads for my HE500 and after seeing Musicinmymind's photo's, decided to try and do the same.  I didn't know you could attach the Audeze (microsuede) pads to the HE500 but it was very easy to do.  The pads are way more comfortable in my opinion from the stock pads. I also ordered an extra headband pad (cushion) from ebay which I hope to reduce the pressure on the top of my head.

The grills were white same as gimbals and both powder-coated, yes. Last minute change to black.

Wouldn't surprise me if Audeze would steal the look of this.

They look awesome, how's the sound? Much improved?

I'd just say everything is purely for cosmetic purposes, barring the Jerg mods. It is amazing but just a tiny tweak in the headband cushion and no more head pain. In all that time they never added just a bit more quality sponge on the headband for the entire line up to the HE-6 based on the head pain complaints from many people using them for an extended period.

 

Audeze should make a suspension band pronto. It distributes the weight right across the head.

The look of Audeze is just 100% wow to me, but I've held off till now due to the weight. Was a great pair of 2.1's for sale last week.....

Ah, so the Audeze microsuade pads are now available in black?  Looks quite nice and super comfortable, it's a shame they're just a tad larger in circumference.

Monkey you sick bastard... WHY DID YOU WAIT SO LONG TO POST THAT

 

OMG, but GUYS :D my HE 4 is going to look like that muhahahahaha, I was hoping the White Beyer pads would look good with the Wood cups and they do! SO thanks Monkuy, I got Brian at BTG to install your wood cups for me, I've also got him to do an Earing mod on the HE 4, for the Auzde mini XLR plugs

 

also jealous of that brown stain you gave teh head band. Mines black so the headphone will be black, brown and white which isn't bad

They were dis-assembled for forever and a day as I needed various external/internal parts to mark wood batches. The headband leather/padding is new, not stained. Changed it from burgundy to tan at the last moment. Beyer pads are silver/gray, it's the light. After going round about 8 or so fabric retailers I just could not find a velour as plush and soft as Beyer's material. Their earpads are just so plush and the dust/lint rejection is great.

They're softer both in material and the foam. I'd say they're a good upgrade. They also come in black.
