These Brainwavz ear pads fit much better than the ATH-M50x Velour Ear pads that I had paid for on Massdrop at a higher price. The ear space seem much larger than the ATH-M50x velour Ear pads. Less sound leakage too so there was a increase in the mids and bass tones over the velour ear pads. Now I regret getting the velour ear pads. The only complaint that I have about the protein PU leather is that it makes me sweat a bit more than the velour ear pads.
Finally got them today. They fit to MSR7 and are a lot bigger than the stock pads. Very well made, fits well, comfortable, same as expected.
However, as @tolis626 mentioned; the lows are missing. I'm not a basshead and using my MSR7 since its release. MSR7 is not popular because of its bass response though. Soundstage get a little wider, just a little bit. Don't expect too much.
Pros against stock pads: comfort, price, size Cons against stock pads: bass response

I really can't even think about that :D Not only really creative but also brave! Needless to say, I'd think twice before even attempt. Great as usual, thanks a lot!

Why thank you sir for your kind words! :D Don't be afraid, it's really easy. The only thing you have to be careful about is the wire. Pay attention to it and you'll be a-okay. And the improvement is worth it, IMO! Have fun!
Will the protein pads fit my Sony 1000XM2’s..?

I would also like to know
Has anyone use the HM5 pads (the leather or pleather ones) with Audio Technica MSR7s? I'm looking to buy a pair but I've heard that they absolutely destroy the sound, elevating the already prevalent highs and obliterating the already lacking lows, although they do appear to add soundstage. But that's just what I've heard in forums. And feedback from you guys would be appreciated!

Same here. However I joined the drop (for Pleather) today after reading this article of Steve Guttenberg. My MSR 7 is now more than 2 years old and I need to replace the earpads. Sadly, I couldn't find any better option than this one. https://www.cnet.com/news/the-20-headphone-makeover/
Do these fit on the Massdrop x Sennheiser PC37X?
I ignored everything I read and ordered these for my Massdrop/Sennheiser HD6XX anyway. I must recommend against it. They are super comfy, much more so than stock, but man, they make the HD6XX sound like crap. They will ruin all that is good about this headphone. Quite shocking to me, since I've used these pads with other head sets with great success.

I ordered these adapters: http://www.modhouseaudio.com/sennheiser-earpad-adapters/
You might be able to get them cheaper, or even print them yourself if you have a 3-D printer, but I was very pleased with the price and speed of shipment from modhouse audio.
Sniffy
thanks
I hope we can get this drop soon. Desperately need a decent set of replacement ear pads.
This drop is gonna take a month to get. One heck of a wait time.

Just a heads-up: Amazon regularly has Lightning Deals for Brainwavz pads. In fact, a few days after the latest drop ended, Amazon had the velour pads for $17.10 -- less than Massdrop's price ($17.99). Amazon's shipping would have taken 2-5 days... not 4-5 weeks for Massdrop's order to arrive on the slow boat from China.
Clearly, Brainwavz gave Massdrop dibs and then had Amazon lower the price for their velour pads to further boost sales. I see what you did there, Brainwavz. So in the future, I will pass on Brainwavz pad 'deals' from Massdrop and just wait for Lightning Deals on Amazon.
I HIGHLY recommend the pleather pads as an upgrade for the ATH-M50x. Dramatically increases comfort and low-end/sound stage. Skip the velours unless you plan on EQ'ing. They almost completely remove the bass.
MidnightJones
100% agree. Sheepskin leather is even better, because it has same sound as pleather but better breathability and a nice premium feel.
does they fit on beterdynamics dt990 ?
jumski
Yes they do, you can take off the stock earpads and carefully stretch them on directly to the driver housing
does anyone know if these fit on the sony mdr 100 aap's
Is it fair to assume these are the oval ear pads rather than the round option?
Will these fit the Akg K553 Pro?
Fredrik.R.K
No, the pads are oval. Properly replacing the K553's large, round, stock pads would require pads of similar size/shape.
My recommendation to make the K553 more comfortable and sound better: Evenly place cotton balls around the inside of the stock pads... more inside the lower-back so that the pads conform to your head for a tighter seal.
Fredrik.R.K
Yeah, they fit. Just require a bit of stretching and patience putting them on. Used them with my own AKG K553 pro and makes them super comfortable.
Got angle ones from amazon since they are not on the drop (and bought them like 2 days ago which FeelsBadMan for the price) I got them for ATH-M50x I have the velour ones, and I don't have problems with the sound like everybody else, it is true, that they leak some sound, from high mids/treble (hi hat, voices and snares overall) but they are comfy AF!! about the bass, I'm not really sure, I still have some sweet bass, (let's remember M50x are not the best basshead headphones) but I'll let you know when I install the angle leather ones, if it modifies the sound signature.
The people complaining about M50x, I had them for like 2 years now, they are well-made (I sleept with them and wore them on rainy days and they seem pretty much like the first day) It is true that they need some burning tho, at least if you want to preserve your ears when trebles/highs kick in at max volume xd

To all the buyers: Beware that these are NOT memory foam pads. I bought pleather one from authorised reseller on Amazon and this is what I got when I extracted the foam. The right one is real memory foam I bought to make new pads and left round cut is what Brainwavz claim to be memory foam, which is false.
indi_guy
I have a pair of HM5 pads and they're definitely memory foam.
Not sure if these are the same, but Brainwavez absolutely uses real memory foam in at least some of their products.
indi_guy
Interesting, can you share a photo of the ones you made please? Just curious to see what you created
Does it work for the sennheiser HD58x? Please let me know. Thank you.
tjmad96
yes
Got mine 3 days ago, enjoyed since.
Feel on the head: * Like people before have commented- a little bit itchy. The itchiness has reduced in a couple of days, friend commented it goes away in a while. Not feeling itchiness anymore when writing this review.
* Pads feel very soft on my head(my head is big)- MDR-7506's soft clamping force and soft pads is a good combo for me.
* I can use my earphones for extended periods of time- Before these I had ATH-M50x Velour Ear Pads which were an improvement over the original ones but my ears got a bit tired and I still needed some rest from the headphones. Thanks to these I don't need that rest.
Fitment: * Fit on Sony my MDR-7506. The fitment isn't perfect and putting them on requires a lot of patience, but it CAN be done. It isn't aesthetically as pleasing as m50x or OEM pads but the comfort is well worth it. The fitment is a bit uneven on different sides. See attached pictures.
* Firend has ATH-M40x and the fitment is perfect in my opinion

Sound: * Leaks more sound than with ATH-M50x velour and OEM pads. EDIT: leaks more sound both ways. * Reduces bass a tad, which might be asking a lot from MDR-7506 but i'm still happy with the results, I'm not a big bass guy anyway.
Overall I'm very pleased, the itchy-scrachy thing goes away in a couple of days (at least for me).
I took velur one's for my ATH-M50 and in my opinion this combinantion is a waste of money. They change sound of headphones way to much and you loose quite a lot of their possibilities. Good think is comfort, big and nice to wear, but still, you wear headphones for a reason, not only because it's cold
I have a pair of Fostex T50RPs (V1 modded). I really like them, but the pads were...well, uncomfortable. I replaced with the Shure 1540 Alacantras. Much more comfortable, but I found myself squeezing the 'phones against my head, trying to get my bass back. After reading the comments here, I don't think these will help. Anyone have a solution to my problem?
HollowState
Nope nothing beats the stock pads on sound, as crappy as they may be. So I gave up swapping pads on my fostex mk3.
"High -Grade memory foam" huh... I bought a pair of the velour ones from Amazon not too long ago and was really disappointed in their "high-grade memory foam". Just a warning: if your expecting to get the type of foam that your able to press on or squeeze and be able to watch as the memory foam slowly rebounds then your going to be disappointed. The pair I had didn't hold their shape at all and I honestly wondered if it was actually memory foam. Call me picky, but the memory foam ear pads I'm used to on headphones typically have a "gel" like feel to them, or like actual memory foam, like that found in memory foam pillows and such.
other than that though, not gonna deny that they did increase comfort over the supremely crappy stock pads of the specific headphones I used them with though (Stax L-300's...)
Bought the Brainwavz velour pads after using the ATH-M50x velour pads for around 6 months because I wanted to try a different type of foam seeing as the initial velour ones started to cause discomfort around the ears after several hours of continued use. The fit around the ear (in terms of size) is much better and I don't have to wiggle about to get my ears in nice and snug.
Contrary to what other people have said I am experiencing more noise bleeding in from the outside and more noise bleeding out from the inside with a noticeable loss in the lower frequencies, which I guess can be chalked up to the fact that the foam is much thicker than the ATH-M50x velour pads' and thus the driver is farther away from your ear canal. Even though I do enjoy my fair share of bass, it's a trade-off I am willing to make as the sound stage is now much wider and songs that don't rely on bass sound much more open and, for me, more enjoyable. I'll update this if these start to cause discomfort as well after many hours of use.
EDIT: The pads do seem somewhat itchy as @Afterman noted, but this isn't too big of a nuisance.

z-reviews said pretty much the same thing. The Velour pads leak sound, can take away some of the bass. The sheepskin pads are better for closed environments, and help with bass. (paraphrasing here, I'd suggest listening to his youtube review to get his exact phrasing). He liked both though
I got the Oval ones direct from Brainwavz. Sheepskin ones. When I first tried to fit them to my Beyer DT770 pro headphones I worried as it didn't seem they would fit. However they just need a bit of finessing and they do fit just fine. Really nice upgrade, bass seems clearer and these are more comfortable than velor pads. Very happy with these.
Stuck these on my HD580. They're a little itchy and the memory foam seems a little hard, velour version. Bass went up but it's not as breathable as the oem pads so it makes it sound a little hollow. Although I don't remember the pleather ones sounding like that when I temporarily placed them on my HD580s. Probably because the memory foam is hard so it still sits further away from my ear whereas the regular pleather ones I had are soft so the drivers sit closer. Gotta go try them out again.

You might be interested in the pads that Dekoni makes, they have been dropping them frequently in the last few months.
anyone knows if this fit on bose qc35
No angled pads = pass. Who would buy flat pads nowadays?

Why would it be a mistake? They build them with the angled drivers for the exact reason that angled earpads exist: to direct the sound into your ears for better sound quality.
rhenom
why would human ears grow angled leaving the headphone companies no choice but to misplace the drivers?
Will these fit on the Sony MDR-MA900?
wish there was an option for the hybrid memory foam pads :(
How do I request a drop? I'd like to see the "XL" version become available. This is the version that is made to fit the large-cup AKG phones.

Too bad that angled pads are not available in this drop (
Load 2 more comments
Angled or not generally depends on the specific headphone, for example the Audio Technica ATH-M50X headphones have the drivers themselves angled, so you don't need angled pads, but for other headphones where the driver isn't angled, angled pads are the way to go.
I own those exact pads that I linked, although in general I prefer Dekoni pads.
New to the world of over ear headphones, always been an IEM guy. I recently got some cheap Bluetooth headphones -

The pads they come with leave a lot to be desired in terms of noise isolation and they are WARM. The faux leather makes my head sweat. Would these Brainwavz fit?
Thanks in advance for any recs.

Great, thanks for the input. I had jumped on the drop for the sheep skin versions here already.
Hopefully my Clash tunes sound better on these pads ; - )

I find the clampdown is much improved. ;)
