Hi,

Why do you need them? I tell you why I ask.

I have a much used pair of HD600's. Sounds fab but the felt pads are crushed & have seen better days. Not damaged, I hasten to add. Anyway, foolishly, I decided I needed a new pair of replacement felt pads £42 including postage in the UK. I have them but didn't even try them on my 'phones, hardly any difference overall to my old pair. I wasted my money. However, they might come in useful one day.

Best wishes,

Nigel

Aren't the 650's pads the same as the 580 and the 600?

Order from Sennheiser direct.

H-50635 “Replacement ear cushions, pr.” $26.40

I don't know if the US part number is the same.

I replaced mine because they were worn out. They were smooshed down, and generally getting kind of nasty from year of sweat building up.

The new ones were much firmer.

This brings up the question... supposing one uses one's headphones everyday for, say, 2-6 hours a day, how often should one expect to need to replace pads?

If you want the cushions to be not squished in.

At least once a year.



Twice a year if you sweat alot.

You could probably easily get two years out of a set of pads.

I've removed my HD580 pads a few times in the last years, and washed them with hot water and soap.

They will not be like new after that, but they will be clean. Try it at least before ordering replacement pads, there is nothing to lose.

Hi,

When you replaced the pads, was there any differences in sound quality?

Cheers,

Nigel

BTW
Much better price that! I rang Sennheiser UK & they put me in touch with their main UK dealer, Darby of St Albans, if I recall correctly.

Mainly in bass and imaging.

I guess because the drivers were "off" kilter a bit from the more smooshed pads.

Pretty subtle, though. Well except for the imaging.


Keep in mind the smooshing thing is more prevalent if you have a huge noggin like me.

£42 for a couple of foam pads?? Daylight robbery........... end of.


We are talking a pair of plastic sennheiser headphones here, not a walnut dashboard for a classic car! £42 is absolute p*ss taking.

Your not impressed then Mike?

£42 is expensive, the Philips HP890 were only about £50 if I remember correctly.

Am I the only one here who puts the hood from the hooded sweat shirt over my head before I put the giant can on? Never really needed replacement pads.

Good idea Stoner.

Might be detrimental for obtaining the best sound quality though. :)

Im not cetain why that would prevent the pads from loosing their fluffiness.

But everyone complaining about their priciness...yeah they are. I wish someone would design replacement pads of their own that were more appropriately priced.
