For those, dish soap and warm water does the trick quite well.

well RatShack do sell replacement for them i beleive. as for washing them, the next time you do your laundy, just throw the earpads in along with your underwears and boxers. it is safe and the foams will not be torn. it help clean it out and soften them.

oh, and wash them with your undergarments at your own risk.

Proved that despite its huge size the CD3000 can be shoved down one's throat.

If I try washing the pads of my K401's would they soften up a bit?

i pretty sure some of the colors will fade, so it might end up looking funny...but i guess you can always dye it.

I was not ironic, I was sincere and honest, this question is IMO simply completelly silly, trying to be polite, and no offense on that, but think twice about what was asked, and don't tell me that you do not know how to wash a piece of foam. Just because it belongs to a Grado headphone that does not make it different to any other common piece of foam, we use foam to do the dishes, to soap your body, to clean glasses, to wash our cars, com'on...!!!!!!!

Then let's make this a non-foam thread


What about washing the velour ear pads that comes on the HD580s?
