The EDT990VB (https://m.thomann.de/gb/beyerdynamic_dt990_ersatzohrpolster.htm) pads are actually for the DT990, not for the T1. The official replacement pads are the EDT-T1V (https://m.thomann.de/gb/beyerdynamic_t1_first_generation_ear_pads.htm)
You can also try the T1G2 pads (https://m.thomann.de/gb/beyerdynamic_t1_2nd_generation_ear_pads.htm) on the T1. They have fewer, but larger holes on the back sides. They give a more focused overall sound with tighter bass. Soundstage is also slightly wider due to the slightly thicker/firmer foam used.
It's CAD$126.79 shipped to Canada for the EDT-T1V's. No thanks. Thats absolutely absurd in my opinion. Went through the same process last year when I first replaced the pads on my T1. The general consensus I got from this thread at the time was that the EDT990VB were about as close as you can get to the original pads that are regularly available in Canada/US. If anyone knows of another source closer to home, or alternative pads that don't cost $70CDN just for shipping, I'm all ears. Neither the EDT-T1V or the T1G2 pads are available from the North American site.
So ya... pad rolling options anyone?
