I have replied. I apologize for the delay

thanks, i've replied your reply last week, but again, have yet to hear back..
I know these are meant for Audio-Technica headphones but anyone tried them on TH-X00 yet? A little bit curious because I find the Dekoni TH-X00 ear pads (I tried 3) works but ultimately all have different trade offs.
So at this point it's still a trial and error approach.

lol yeah I read through that before. Although I find even though I've read through allllllll the reviews, but when I actually got it in my hands on the ear pad and listen to them it's another story.
Maybe like you said the trial and error can't be avoided.
Maybe I'll try the TH900 pads next on my TH-X00 to see what happens. :P

See my review below: the pads for Audio Technica AD-series are VERY thin, in terms of padding. This is exactly correct for the AD frames, and may or may not be a good idea on other frames. I haven't owned a pair like yours so I can't guess whether that's good or bad for you.
How do these compare with the Brainwavs sheepskin XL pads? Anybody know?
SlowCousinPete
I got both. Brainwavs XL sheepskin pads on my AD2700 (Ad2000 drivers in an AD700 frame):

They look pretty cool!
Here's the Dekoni sheepskin:

These Dekonis were absurdly difficult to install, and I'm a compulsive pad-roller so it's not like this is my first rodeo. Seriously frustrating, I had to stretch them farther than I was really comfortable with. They're not radially symmetric, because the AD-series frames are not. I had to use a paint marker to draw a line on the thinnest point of the back for reference. This is why they look all wrinkly and ugly in the pic, it's very difficult to get them lined up perfectly. Somehow the OEM pads do not suffer from this problem; neither do the Brainwavs, which have a much more generous amount of material in the "lip". Dekoni could have done better here. The sheepskin quality is virtually identical in both the Dekoni and Brainwavs. Both are nicely put-together.
Sound quality is where the Dekonis excel. I bought these pads because I love the AD2000's highs and detailed, articulated bass, I just wanted a greater QUANTITY of bass without affecting anything else. That's exactly what the pads do. A+ in keeping the original sound and comfort, and making it hit just enough harder, providing exactly what I wanted from this purchase. The Brainwavs -- which, to be fair, weren't specially designed for AD-series frames, they're just the only ones with a large enough diameter to fit -- are so thick in the padding, there's a ton of added space between the drivers and your ears, so the sound is (IMO) significantly compromised. It loses the high frequency precision I appreciate the headphones for, so the gains in low-end quantity are rendered irrelevant.
The Dekonis also cost $20 more, which might matter to some people. To me, it's well worth it paying the premium. (The Dekonis were $60 here, the Brainwavz were $40 on Amazon.)

I just saw this and wanted to let you know there's a trick to the line up when installed. First of all, the pad with the white rim should be on the left. Then, when installed the seam on the side of the headphones should be on the bottom. this should allow for a good fit and get everything lined up correctly.
Would the velour be an upgrade over the ad900x stock pads? I already find the stock pads fairly comfortable.
Has anyone had any experience with the sheepskin or fenestrated sheepskin on either a1000z or a900x? A900x is pretty much unusable to me with stock pads, but wanted to have an idea of how the sound might change before I commit to the drop. (a1000z is better but could still be better)

No it wouldnt be an upgrade, But it'd be a replacement.

After receiving them -
For the ad900x the velour seems to bring out the lows a bit more, perhaps smoothening the highs a bit to make them less piercing. I prefer the sound with the Dekoni velour pads.
For the a900x , fenestrated sheepskin does much the same as what I said above, with velour pads a900x sounds thin. A1000z , bit more bass with the fenestrated , but happy with the stock pads on this, so the two 900xs get the Dekoni's.
Would these fit the Sony XB 950bt's?
would these work for final audio's sonorous vi?
I have ATH-w5000. The stock pads on those are sheepskin. My issue with those are they have a tendency to pinch my ears when I wear glasses. I have tried tried pad swapping with ZMF eikon, universe, and autuer pads and gained comfort but lost the original sound signature.
From exploring multiple pads, I figured fixing my personal issue with the w5000 would require having a new pad that increases the height of the ear cavity while maintaining the same distance. The pads dekoni currently have on offer this drop seem to keep the distance but also maintain the same ear cavity; making the sheepskins here basically the same as stock w5000 pads.
My question is are the sheepskins on this drop equivalent to the stock w5000 pads or are there comforts gains while also maintaining the original sound? I imagine the foam would be the biggest difference between the two, but the pads are so thin to begin with that I'm not sure if a difference would be noticeable.
Are these earpads compatible with Fostex TR-60?
Sank
Seeing as how these are circular, no.
Dekoni does offer Fostex-TR series ear pads too.
Are these suitable for the AKG K553?

No, the cup size is the same exact size. I will be buying a pair of these next time they drop and I will let you know if they fit my AKGs

I thank you in advance
