Are there any recommended sellers people can advise me to use to import a fresh pair?

I'm powering my pair with an Oppo HA-2, the bass extends so deep and low without mudding the highs, I truly love them.

Hi, in case you do not find any elsewhere you could consider the real pro model from Yamaha, the HPH MT220 that is really a nice hp.

Just doing a favour for our British and EU members, the Pro-500 is now just £120, an outrageously good deal! down from £250

In my quest to find massive bass in Bluetooth headphones I stumbled across ATH WS99BT. They had really crappy 90mm round earpads, but was told that brainwavz pads would fit and the headphones would kill after that. Bought some Brainwavz for em and the fit was sloppy to say the least. I personally found it unacceptable. Went on a search for smaller pads and happened across these. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B071CPSJYD/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
They were 8mm smaller on the sides and 8mm smaller on the top/bottom. Once I received the pads I put em on the 99bt's and it was a nice tight fit. Now the headphones were completely over ear. Pads were super top notch quality with a nice stiff memory foam that fit snuggly around my ear. Great! Too bad the headphones are not that good....

Anyway. Got to thinking about another pair of headphones that have some gank ass boody nasty 90mm pads on em, The Yamaha Pro 500. Replaced that pads with the Bingles, and holy crap! Why the fug has nobody thought of this before? Anyway who cares. Find a cheap pair somewhere, throw these pads on and enjoy having your head kicked in. the Bingles are not only super comfortable, but so much more of the energy is transmitted to flesh now. Its really insane. Even the rubber cushion at the top of the headband vibrate. The fit is really good too.

The headphones are still big and heavy and made of plastic that will eventually break, but comfortability and ear size should not be a problem anymore.

My personal favorite headphone is now even better.
