Forgive me for this anal post. I have AKG K701's and I when putting them on the other day I noticed the pad looks dirty where the temples from my glasses hit them. Is there any way to clean these? If not obviously not even a minor deal here but wondering. Thanks

Washing machine. Delicate cycle. Maybe a touch of fabric softener.

Let 'em air dry, though.

If that doesn't work, you can always buy a new pair of pads from aloaudio or a similar authorized dealer. =)


know any others besides ALO? i'm keen on some K701 pads for my K501s and AKG international or their AU distributors haven't got back to me =\

I always use and highly recommend hand washing in Woolite. Woolite is very gentle and washing by hand ensures you treat your pads with care. Rinse thoroughly and - here's an important part - let air dry in an ideally dry and breezy environment.

Washing fairly regularly will also stop them rotting away... its amazing how acidic human skin and hair secretions can be

I really love the look of the Beyer Gray Velour pads, can i simply bleach my K701 pads?
