Want to give some pads a good washing. How do I remove the pads on my HD580s?

Is there a way to remove that headband cushion too?

Thanks

tried looking for a thread but couldn't find it

Just pull on them.

The headband padding is more tricky to get off, but I managed to get them off by some forceful pulling too. Try and get the ends out first.

For the HD-5X5 headphones, you just pull on them. The first time, I was very scared that I was going to rip the pads, but they're really quite strong. You've got to be firm with them, and pull them directly up.

Of course, that's for the 5X5s. I have no idea about the 580.

pretty much the same thing
hold the pad with two fingers, one on each side of the pad
and pull
it will *pop*

they are connected to a plastic ring which snaps into the cup. pull on them a little until u can get a finger under the ring and pop them out

Next step is to learn how to take the enclosures apart.

It's very easy once you figure out how. Requires absolutely no tools at all.
