Customer Reviews

MUCH more comfortable than the stock pleather pads.
R. Pesta
They smoothed out the overall sound from low bass, mids and highs and are way more comfortable.

These are great replacement pads for my Audio Technica ATH-M50s.

These ear pads made my Audio Technica ATHM50 much more comfortable. The height of the ear cavity is about 7cm vs the 6cm of the stock ATHM50 pads, and the velour material is much more comfortable than the ATHM50's pleather. I didn't hear any audible difference between the stock pads and these, although I didn't do a careful comparison. The improved comfort makes listening to music with these more enjoyable. The fabric backings of the two pads are made of similar materials and have similar permeability, so any actual sonic differences are likely to be minimal.

Note: if you flex your ear muscles or move your head around sharply, these will sometimes 'creak'. I didn't find it annoying, but if that sort of thing annoys you, you should probably avoid velour altogether.

Then buy this set. I got these through a few recommendations, and I absolutely love them. Fits the 440s perfectly, and are way more comfortable than the stock 440 pads.

Everyone is talking about how they're great for the SRH440, and I'd like to add that they also work nicely for the Audio Technical ATH-M50. In fact, I find the ATH-M50 with these pads more comfortable than the SRH840 with them. Everyone's ears are different, but that's my $0.02. Good comfy pads in general.

To test I installed one pad and left the original pad on the other side of my 440's. The 840 pad has a larger surface area (see my pics with the old pad on the left in all shots) so I guess that spreads out the pressure over a larger area. But it's really minimal and I did not notice a huge difference pressure wise. The material is nicer/softer than the original so that is a plus. Every so often I would flip the headphones around to see if I could tell anything. The larger pad does cover more of the ear- almost surrounds it. But seriously, if you had me blindfolded I wouldn't bet my life that I always knew which side were which. But in general the large pad and softer material seems to be a better set up. I can't imagine any set of cans actually feeling comfortable to have on for an extended period of time.

Sound difference? Yes, one side in my test sounded better I felt... until I switched them around! Just like eyes your two ears are not 100% equal and over time they lose their edge but not at equal rates. I think those who make any kind of big deal out of any significant improvement or degradation in sound might be imagining it. I would have to see some measureable proof to believe that whatever millimeters' worth of difference in how the drivers may sit in relationship to your eardrums affects how the sound waves actually strike them. Wishful thinking or all inside their heads maybe? Notice the contradictory reviews- more bassy, less bassy etc??? It becomes highly subjective and I wouldn't buy or not buy these pads based upon those claims. If you need replacements this is no brainer as a cheap way to keep your expensive headphones alive. If you need more comfort then these may do the trick for you but I'm glad I didn't pay any more for them than I did from Amazon. That's my 2 cents.

I bought these pads to replace the terrible pleather ones that come with the ATH-M50's and they were nothing short of a disappointment. First impressions are that they are very comfortable and easy to install and remove. They were a little loose fitting but that was expected because they are not made for my headphones. Comfort aside I was not expecting such a drastic change in sound from the stock pads to these. The 940 pads completely tamed the high end and in some songs it almost removed simple sounds like a pick against the strings of an acoustic guitar. The bass was tamed as well but that I could have lived with it since it did actually mellow out some songs. The one thing that really bothered me was the pads almost seemed to lower the volume. I even had to bump up the volume to be able to hear some low points in a movie.

I really did want to like these pads because of how comfortable they are but doing an A/B comparison there was no denying that the 940 changed the sound to something that I did not like.

Pros:
Very comfortable
Soft
Easy to install

Cons:
Way too loose
Completely changed the sound profile

All negative points aside, if you're looking for comfort for your M50's and you are not worried about the sound change then these are a great buy.

My stock pads were that of a dried out elephant. Crusty and lacking the padding causing my ears to be in a lot of pain with extended listening.

I picked these up because they would be like ear muffs in the winter and they actually add another layer of noise canceling and an extreme degree of comfort.

I have recommended these to my fellow M50 users and a few have picked these up.

I thought the original cushions on my SRH440s were really comfortable, but now I realize that I was mistaken. These replacement cushions make the old ones seem like rocks carved to fit around your ears. Treat yourself to a comfort upgrade!

On a more functional note, they seem to do a much better job at isolation than the stock 440 cushions.
