Brainwavz Memory Foam Ear Pads
Brainwavz Memory Foam Ear Pads

Widely Praised, Widely Compatible

Known for their comfort and value, the Brainwavz memory foam ear pads are among the most frequently recommended replacements for the Audio-Technica M50X on Head-Fi and Reddit’s r/headphones. Each pair features high-grade memory foam wrapped in your choice of sheepskin leather or soft, plush velour. They’re the same size as most standard ear pads and are suitable for use on Brainwavz H5 headphones, along with many other large over-the-ear models. The list includes the Audio Technica ATH-M50; Shure SRH 440; Koss DJ100 and DJ200; Takstar HI 2050 and Pro 80; Ultrasone HF 580, SH 1 Pro, and HFI 780; Sony MDR V6 and ZX 700; Fostex T50RP T50; M-Audio Q40; JVC S500S; and many more.

Note: This drop is for a pair of ear pads in your choice of velour or sheepskin (+ $11). Because all Brainwavz ear pads are handcrafted, yours may vary slightly in size (+/- a few millimeters) from the dimensions given. However, this should not affect their fitting.
