I would like to buy K140 earpads in good shape.
I have a verified nonCC Paypal account.

Correct me if I'm wrong.



I might have had non-standard K140 (though I doubt it), but mines had smaller pads than the K141. The baffle of the K140 is only as large as the metal cups, while the baffle of the K141 is larger. A pic of my K140

and a pic of my old-style (i.e. with silver cups and Sextett drivers) K141

Be careful also to the way the K141 pads attach to the baffle: my old-style ones were glued, the bayonet lock should be only in the newer (gold cups) models. AKG K140 pads can be had from AKG spares, mines though took about 4 months to get to me, and they came wrapped in early '70s oily paper fixed with crumbling adhesive tape.

Edit: K140 pads are not only smaller, but also different in shape, as they have a round section instead of the rectangular section of the K141 pads.
