Anyone know which of the pads on the audiocubes2 / bluetin websites also fit on the W5000, and may be more comfortable?
I thought the AD2000 pads might be worth a try, they look soft.

The w5000 stock pads are hurting me with long listening sessions, especially the right earpad doesn't seem to fit well.
I've tried rotating the cups, rotating the earpads (currently got the stitches at 6 o clock), adding padding in the pads, adding/reducing clamping force and changing the angle of the headband, but they still aren't as comfortable as I'd like them to be, which distracts from the actual listening.

Suggestions and tips are appreciated.

If the W5000 pads are so uncomfortable, you have a wrong shaped head/ears. I recommend you to send back to manufacturer and get a new one.


The head or the can?

Well to give you an actual answer. Putting pads that would resolve your comfort issue onto W5000 would cause issues with the sound because you seem to not have enough space in there for your ears. More so...if you have such big ears, better get used to W5000, or you are going to have to get an HE90...
