Will these be suited to be used to monitor a home podcast setup? Any input would be helpful! Thanks in advance.
I cant help but comment on this I am no audiophile but biocellulose diaphragm is that not cardboard and has it not been the cheapest type of diaphragm in use since the first development of mag driven speakers?
Are the ear pads replaceable? If so, any recommendations?

Alright I got them today. You can replace the earpads like any other really (like in this video: https://youtu.be/_xkRG6otizw?t=19s).

got this few weeks ago , is light in weight , comfortable and covered round my ears although is on ear. the base was obvious. not really cope well with the outside noise when in outdoor or public transport as you could hear the noise quite prominently. it is not a fold-able pair and was not provided with any carrying case so trying to store it in your bag can be a concern too. Overall , the look , the comfort and sound was more than acceptable to me for the prize of it except the flimsy wire .
Got these when they first came out. The cord is crap, but otherwise they're quite decent. They're pleasing to both eye and ear, and they're comfortable.
These look like a Creative Aurvana Live, with wood housings.

That is literally what they are, E-MU is a subsidiary of Creative

I got Creative Aurvana almost 8 years ago, and they still are in decent shape. After recabling they sound very good. That was great steal for that money (I remember paying around $80 back then).
Guys do check out Takstar Pro82 before you decide to join this drop. The hype train of Pro82 is demolishing all hype train stations!

I have auditioned Stax (SR-407 + SRM-007) and I own a pair of TH900. Nothing can compare to Stax in clarity and nothing could compare the bass of TH900. I have read some review says that TH900 is the closest sounding dynamic driver headphones to Stax and I fully agree with that.
The takstar pro 82 have almost an identical sound to the Sony mdr-A1. I have both. The sliding tabs on the backside of the ear cups to gain bass, I have mine open all the way for the most bass and sounds just standard bass. The Sony's A1 has more bass but a hint sloppy. The takstar has less mid bass also. Both headphones are great sounding but the Sony outshines by a tad. comparing sound to cost, the takstar is the better choice. At 65 vs 300 dollars, I think the sonys have come down a lot. Somewhere in the 150-200 dollars.
Are there any earpads available for replacement or recommendation for this heaphone ?thanks
are they better than sennheiser urbanite?

would you recommend them for heavy metal music?

I bought a pair of these during the first drop, about a year ago. Given that I have quite a few pairs of "better" headphones, I'm surprised how much I've used these; they simply have a nice sound signature that makes it easy to enjoy your tunes. Somewhat warm overall with a bit of softness on top, but still quite a lot of punch and detail. You get the sense the biocellulose drivers react quite quickly to the music signal, without overly edge-enhancing the presentation, which can lead to fatigue. These are not fatiguing at all, even over long listening sessions. Easy to drive, even from a portable device, but they do reveal differences in upstream amplification and "scale" as you change the setup in front of them. As mentioned ad nauseum here, the isolation is poor, so don't buy these thinking they will replace your NC headphones. That said, I took these on a ~8 hour plane trip (because they are comfortable to wear, and I knew I'd be in some iffy spots during the trip and didn't want to care about $$) and I still enjoyed the experience. The design is somewhat odd for me, being a sort of combination of on-ear and over-ear; as such positioning can really impact the soundstage in odd ways. But staging is not the strength of this headphone, anyway; tonality, musicality, and enjoyment are. A steal at $75, IMO.
Got these in a few days ago as an on-the-go/at home set for when I don't want to bother the roommate.
I love the look of the wood: very elegant. They seem to fit pretty well once I wiggle them around a bit and are quite comfortable. Isolation isn't the best, but they do soften outside noises, and the boosted bass comes through clearly in noisy settings. Additionally, the microphonics (sounds carried by the cable) seem quite low, especially in comparison with in-ear headphones.
As far as sound, they have a warm overall flavor with a bit of excitement in the upper midrange/lower treble that brings out some texture and detail at medium listening levels but can sound a bit rough when cranking up the volume. Overall, very nice for the price. I think I they sound about as good as my previous pair of closed back headphones, the NAD Viso HP50s, although those had more a reference/neutral tuning than the somewhat fun character of these headphones.
