Vesper audio custom earpads impressions thread

  1. strooper
    I recently purchased a pair of custom leather and memory-foam ear pads from Vesper Audio (https://vesperaudio.com/) to replace a worn-out pair of pads for my ATH-ESW990H headphones. The stock earpads are leather, but rather thin and a little painful, at least for me. They also have to be ordered from Japan through Ebay and cost ~50 USD. Vesper made me ear pads, customized to my requested dimensions, for just a few dollars more. They are excellent. They are much more comfortable. Look great. And fit the headphones perfectly. I'm very happy with them.

    There aren't many options for custom ear pads, so I wanted to share with people my positive 20171031_140929.jpg 20171031_140929.jpg 20171031_140945.jpg experience with Vesper.

    I purchased a couple of pairs of ear pads from these guys, received them a few weeks ago. Both memory foam, both full alcantara. Couldn't really be happier, will be getting these for more of my 'phones, next up are the Beyerdynamic DT1770 (the pads I got for the AKG K550 Mk3's fit quite decently on the Beyerdynamics, however I'm still going to be getting a pair specifically made for them). The only downside I can think of would be the waiting line (a couple of weeks), but that really can't be helped I suppose. Everything else was first grade - communication, selection of materials, quality of work. Overall just 5/5

    Another pair of ear pads that I had ordered arrived a couple of days ago - very nice quality, and great customer service. These were made for the Beyerdynamic DT 1770's, perfect fit.

    My friend placed an order at the same time, also ordering some alcantara ear pads, but in his case for the DT 770 Pro's. He has now had some time to try them on, his impressions are the following:

    "Nice fit, easy to install. The price point is somewhat high-end, but the quality is there. These deeper (than stock) earpads that I ordered place a significant emphasis on the bass, but I actually prefer it - I like smooth, bass-heavy sound signature. Overall, highly recommended".

    We will both be ordering more earpads from Vesper Audio in the future, if/when we get more suitable headphones. 10/10

    Just received those beautiful hand made pads for my M1060 headphones. They are really high quality and customisable. I went for perforated leather for the inner part of the pad, top is alcantara and outside is black leather. Padding is memory foam. Seller @Vesperaudio is very polite and can provide needed support, recommended and will order again!

    Vesper audio helped me out and custom made earpads for my Koss Pro4aaa in finest soft leather.
    I really like the sound from this vintage headphone but the original plastic pads are a bummer!
    Vesper was very helpfull in this process and directed me so I could take the measurments they needed.
    After about two weeks the pads arrive by post and they did fit perfectly.
    The craftmanship are amazing and so is the look, but best of all, they are utmost comfortable.
    The sound are also on top even better than before because the Vesper pads fit precisely around my ears making for a better bass responce.

    I want to thank the friendly guys at Vesper for all help!

    I have ordered many different types of pads from these guys and they were always patient to include my various crazy expectations (make it bigger make it smaller make it flatter etc.). Yes, this is a great company, customer focused and honest. They also successfully modified my piano forte X-G and VIII into mmcx sockets - yep, these are the guys who do such crazy things. Sennheiser IE800, also, which is unbelievable. Hope to work with them in the future and I give my greatest recommendation.

    I have ordered another set ear pads from Vesper audio, this time to a rather tricky set.
    The headphones are Pioneer Monitor 10 in superb state but the pads where hard from age.
    Once again did the guys att Vesper a fantastic job the new leather pads are magic and transformed the headphones so they now are very comfortable to wear and the bass are back!
    And they look superb to so I uploaded some pictures.

    Kind regards

    Recently got some new earpads from Vesper for my Stax SR-L500 and I absolutely adore them.
    I almost like looking at them as much as I love wearing them.

    I mean, just look at that delicious dark brown against the black Stax.

    All leather, memory foam filling and 20mm thick.
    It's like wearing a pillow around my ears.

    I'm going to order new pads for all my headhones from these guys :L3000:

    Got a package today.
    New earpads for my Mitchell & Johnson MJ2.
    Slightly angled, memory foam, leather sides, alcantara on top.
    These are a massive improvement on the stock earpads for the MJ2.
    The stock earpads rest on the ear and I can't wear them for more than an hour before my ears start hurting.
    But with these new pads fit around my ears and I can wear the MJ2 for hours and hours without trouble.
    Very, very pleased!
    Big thanks to Vesper for another high quality earpad set :beyersmile:
