Cool. Just ordered these too. Mostly because they look comfy and they're slightly deeper than the original pads.
I'm wearing the 99 classics at work all day every day and I notice my left ear touching the sponge covering the driver.
Hoping some thicker pads will help making these as comfortable as they were when I first got them.

Thanks for the tip and link! :)

Oki, tell me about the sound, noise isolation and confort of those when you get those pads...

Will do. Will take a couple of days/weeks because aliexpress, but I'll update this thread when I get a feel of how they compare to the original pads!

I notice my left ear touching the sponge covering the driver.
Throughout the day it can be sensible enough to eventually lead to discomfort. Deeper pads recommended!

I recently bought these earpads, originally bought them to try out on my HD650 but they ended up on the 99 classics.
Micro-fibre and memory foam, just a bit bigger and deeper than the stock pads (I think I had the original v1 pads on them, I think).
Sound-wise they didn't alter the Meze magic (ymmv).

But you got more comfort out of them, which is a win!

I guess you will lose the original bass due to the soft material of the earpads?
I am very hapy with my replaced leather earpads : comfort, sound quality and durability ..

The material is very soft but dense as well, I'm not experiencing a form of lack of bass at all.

hi, is the meze 99 good for vocal music (male and female) and is the bass too much so it drowns the mids?

thanks

We wouldn't say it's this muddy to have vocals drowned, but some openness does nice things to sound of these cans.
