After trying out a few other earpads, i've found that the Shure SRH840 ones are the best. They are more comfortable, fit larger ear and dont change sound isolation & signature much. There is a slight drop in bass and improvement in soundstage but nothing major. Plus they're only $16 on amazon. I'd stay away from the velour SRH940 though.
Does fit any headphones or are these specific to a particular brand and model?
Everyone knows M50x has this pressure in your head that makes it uncomfortable in long hours, does this pads affect that? I am not really worried about the texture of the stock pads, its the pressure.

Are you talking about pressure from the the headband resting on top of your head? Or pressure on your ears? I've had a pair of M50x's before and I bought these same earpads for them. The main improvement is the earpads don't accumulate oil and get that gross sticky feeling.
Does anyone know where to ge the original pads, not only the black ones but other colors? I have the dark green version (I think it was a limited edition) of the M50x.
I really like the brown color of these pads and the contrast with the dark green :)
Man, I just picked up the DT250 pads for some 7506 I bought. I needed sealed drivers for an overseas trip...I'm wondering now though whether these pads would have fit, and if so, why didn't I get them? It would have been awesome to have white pads on them!
I bought these to use on my AT M50X headphones, but didn’t end up liking them on my M50Xs, and switched them out for Dekoni sheepskin pads. However, I recently bought Massdrop x E-MU Purpleheart Headphones, and switched the stock pads for these. Hey, I already had them! I really like the purple hearts, but with the stock pads my ears are on the drivers. These velour pads are a tiny bit loose but very usable. Ears off the drivers!
I was worried that these pads would change the sound, but if they do it’s not dramatic. I think I may loose a little bit of isolation but I also think I gain a slightly larger soundstage.
I know it’s Not the intended use for these pads, but I figured it’s always possible someone else is in the same situation!
Is this ever going to ship?

I know right
great product! had mine for 2+ years now and with daily use, still as good as the day i bought them. great for gaming or listening to music. a must have for the m50s
I have these, honestly, I think they're pretty sucky. They completely loose the sealed nature of the headphones. They are slightly more comfortable, but I think the BrainWavez is more inline with what you need on these phones. Also.. they're not going to do much to improve the quality of the audio.
I have big ears lol are these better then the brainwavz Velor ear pads?

Will these fit the old ATH-M50 non x as well?
Pacoeltaco1
Says that right in the description.

They are just the same exact thing, just the detachable cable.
will this fit ATH-PRO700MK2?
will this fix ATH-PRO700MK2?
Massdrop should make a audeze vegan pad clone. They'd sell fast
Didn't buy em on here. But I must say, I think these are fantastic. Hold up better than t he original leather and don't give you sweaty rings on your head!
Will this effect the sound quality? if so, what Will change?
replaced my cracked pads a couple years ago with the Brainwavz HM5 velour pads on Amazon. They collect hair and skin, but that's just velour in general. $25 with prime.
If I had to buy them again, I'd go back to the pleather
I'm holding out for the fur-pads (to match my coat).

I got a pair of velour pads for my M50x and it totally sucked all the bass out of the sounds.
TMBackstrom
So they made the 50x sound good then? ;)
J/K!
These are uncomfortable, especially if you wear glasses.
KITTY
I find them to be comfortable with glasses on, at least metal ones.
I've recently got the Shure HPAEC940 earpads that fit my ATH m50x's just fine. I was wondering if it's worth to get these earpads. Anyone tried them both?
Does anyone know how these compare to the Dekoni velvours from about a week ago?
FakeTank
I have the dekoni pleather and these (silver velour) I feel both relieve some of that pressure the original pads give off. The sound does change a bit, I personally feel for the better. In my perosnal opinion, I was glad I made the purchase I dont use the Dekoni anymore.
Are these earpads fit my ATH PG1 ?
Are these much better than the cheaper options on Aliexpress?
How do these compare to Dekoni leather earpads? I find the stock pads uncomfortable and the Dekoni too small.
Redington
So I have similar material for my headphones, and I like it much, much better than leather. It is more comfortable for longer-term wear, and I actually like the sound better. There is a little more "leakage" but I prefer that sort of feeling to a completely enclosed, almost pressurized enclosure on the ear.
How do I install these? Do I need to rip the old ones off? Is there video or something?
AIzatt
Well, you don't even rip the old ones off you just slip them off and then slip these in.
So I purchased a set of these 2 or so months ago, replacing my old pleather ear cups on the m50x. Picked them up in a pinch and got them delieved a month later. Probably the best fitting ear cups without having to purchase ear cups that are designed for other headphones. In terms of quality, second to none and doesn't change the fidelty and quality of sound which is amazing. Highly recommended and might buy a gray pair for my LE when it comes around again.
So I'm a guy who recently bought the M50x based on reputation and am pretty disappointed -- especially based on the claim that they are somehow "studio" or "monitoring" headphones. My question is might these pads smooth out the sound signature enough to make them worth a try or should I try to pass the cans on to someone who appreciates them the way they are?

You might want to check out the Sennheiser HD1 over-ear (or older/similar momentum). Expensive new, but plenty of options for certified seller refurbs. They sound good and are easy to drive with mobile devices and have more color than neutral monitors. Sounds like you should stay away from the latter, which are targeted towards analytical sound-mixing professionals. M50x's have a very 'V' shaped sound which helps DJ's match rythms while mixing in noisy environments. I totally agree - not for everyone.

Unlikely. The 50x is a bit too thumpy, impacting the mids negatively. I'm sure these will bleed some of the bass bloat off, but you might just be better off getting a pair of the 40's instead. They are far easier to monitor with.
