No sizing info and don't stretch.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Koss Portable Replacement Cushions (Electronics)
Have to agree with the previous review who said that sizing info on these would be useful. FYI, in the package the outside diameter of the pads is 1 7/8" (1.875" or appx 48mm) Bought these for my Sony behind-the-head earphones, and discovered that they're too small. I can get them to fit, but it's tough, and requires stretching them, something they just don't want to do. That's disappointing, because the diameter of my headphones is only 2 1/8" - not much larger.
I can get them to cover, but because they're so thin and non-stretchy, they barely hang on, and I often knock one off while removing the headphones. If they were a higher quality material (like Radio Shack used to offer) they would handle it no problem.

Not as of yet. Unfortunately my Sonys just died, so looks like I'm in them market for entirely new headphones! Mine we MDR-G52s, and lasted longer than just about any other electronic gadget I've ever had!

These are specifically for KOSS products!!!! Packaging and description plainly state!
Fits Koss KSC11, KSC17, KSC75, PortaPro, and
Open, hear-through design
6 per pack
Fits my 30 year old PortaPro's just fine!

Yes, and due to the lack of availability for the ear pads for other headphones, I gave it a try. It would still be very useful to folks who do not have KOSS headphones and can't find replacements for theirs if the dimensions were listed. This design for pads isn't exactly unique to KOSS.
Would it be nice if I could get the right Sony pads and not have to try these? Sure. Is it nice to share the actual diameter with other folks who have the same problem, instead of just pointing out the obvious fact that these are designed for Koss phones? You bet.

I believe the previous commenter was referring to your giving this product a three star review because it didn't fit another brand of headphones for which it was never designed.

Those are designed only for Koss headphones, no size need to be mentioned, if you have a Sony phone, do not get a Koss pad, just order the right Sony pad. BTW in the package in the back you have all models that it should fit perfectly, yours of course is not listed, so not sure why rating three stars a product that is not supposed to work in your application, learn how to review!!!!

I can keep explaining myself all day or you can keep ignoring the reasoning for my review. Your choice. No worries.
Not everyone who needs replacement pads for headphones can find exactly the replacement they need, so my review was to supply the information which is sorely missing from the actual item description. The three stars was because I found the quality of the pads themselves to be pretty low, but hey, if you're going with Koss headphones, you're already used to that. No matter what headphones they were designed for, these pads were thin and flimsy.
