Thin foam for pads

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

It seems impossible to find 1,5-2,5 mm open cell grey/black foam for pads and back of drivers, I only found expensive camera foam in England.

 

Does anybody know where this can be bought by the yard?

PC parts/modding shops will sell thin foam sheets for dust filtration. Probably not exactly what you're looking for, but something.

Thanks, will have a look. Further suggestions would be welcome. Looked everywhere in local shops carrying this material here in Sweden but they don't have it this thin nor in dark colours. Yellow foam for putting drying plates on is available a plenty, though.

Hi,

 

Another reminder - there must be someone out there who knows where this foam can be found.

Black foam is white/yellow foam that has been dyed.

 

You would not see it for Kitchen supply because the dye can rinse out and the dyes are pretty nasty in addition to coloring all your pots and pans and ****. 

 

You would not see it for craft supply because the foam is commonly entombed in a pillow or cushion, and even slight dye bleeding would wreck that, in addition to the fact that nobody will ever see it. 

 

Whats wrong with yellow foam? The 5'th best headphones ever made by sennheiser* (HD414) have bright yellow foam pads...

Make a name for yourself. Its not a failure, its a feature! 

 

 

*Only sort of joking. They are really good, considering when they were made. Ignoring when they were made they are actually pretty nice.

In Sweden, black dye for foam is not available. I seem to recall they sell it in Britain, but I haven't found it on the web. Would be happy if somebody could give me a hint.

 

My original HD414 is quite something, 2000 ohms microphone capsules, fast as hell, elevated presence that digs out details galore. Impossible to listen to in the long run.

 

 

But, the original pads were blue, died, crumbled.
