    They are the same for 600 and 650, yes.
    Does anyone actually have proof the HD660S pads are different?
  2. lost&confused
    I was thinking that but didn't want to say anything ...as he knows more about headphones than me :)

    Sorry if I ask, but can you say where you've ordered them, I'm not able to find a place that ships to Italy :frowning2:

    I have both the HD650 and the HD660S. Yes the pads are different. The HD660S's pads are deeper. I measure 2.7 cm against 2.2 cm

    How old are the pads on the 650's? They will compress with use. Also where did you order your 660's from?Am interested in these to go along with my 800's. Thank you

    Are the plastic earcups deeper? I'm asking because the earpads seem identical exterior size from the pictures. Maybe the drivers are placed farther from the ears. Also, beware of old pads, especially if you didn't de-clamped your pair and more than 6 months have passed. My first pads of the HD650 lasted me 6-7 months (they were flatter than a pankake), then I bent the metal headbands and the next ones looked the same for 2 years.

    PS: Now that I've seen connieflyer's question (I was wrinting at the same time he was) and your answer, it seems that the earpads are the same depth, if you take the compression into account.

    The HD650 is 3 years old, the pads are compressed, I measured the least compressed area.
    The HD660S was bought directly from Sennheiser Home in Germany. Sennheiser.de
    Got it last Friday and love it.

    My HD650 is bent since the beginning. It is my second pair. The rest of the can is identical parts. The changed the paint to no paint, they took the HD700 drivers and deeper pads with the same surface material. That's all.

    Thank you for the info, will try them.

    @jude also found that the pads are deeper. He has some nearly unused HD650 on hand to compare. On top, I use 8 notches width on the 650 and 9 notches on the 660S.

    Straight from Sennheiser but you can only order them if they are available in your country from their store as you can’t chnage the shipping country.
    Have you checked Sennheiser Italy yet? If not you would have to wait a bit or I can order them for you here and ship them to you if you want them fast.

    Thanks for the info. 0.5 cm is quite a bit more indeed.

    Thank you, Sennheiser It pitily does not exist, we have a distributor which is quite slow in updating on top cans.
    Thank you really for the very kind offer! but I will wait until available... It has to be available sooner or later :O

    Sometimes looking for the product, researching the product and building up an excitement in oneself at the thought of having the product can be more rewarding than actually owning the product.

    I wouldn’t say more but it’s certainly part of enjoyment.
    I’d say you get a reward (using the product) for the hard work done (researching, contemplating purchase, finding a good shop, price or second hand one).
