u/Wh0_The_Fuck_Cares · 6 pointsr/mechanicalheadpens

You might want to consider changing those pads on the m40x. Went from stock to Brainwavz on my m30x (same pads) and the difference in comfort and sound is substantial.

u/VelcroSnake · 5 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Nice. Something I did with my Pok3r was buy a set of the white keycaps.

Also, something you might want to look at for the Clouds is a pair of Brainwavz Pads.

u/Feilong4 · 5 pointsr/headphones

I had a pair and they look very nice! The earcups are very striking in appearance. Kinda regret selling them.

The drivers are dynamic and are 20mm in diameter. According to a source, they were released in 1976 and ended production around 1982-83. They originally retailed for 6,000 yen or about 55 USD. I measured the impedance and they were around 50-60 ohms - I forgot the exact number.

Believe it or not, these are semi-open - there are some vents along the circumference of the brown backplate. Here's a picture of the location of the vents. If you open them up and tilt them at the right angle, you can see there are openings/vents.

Here's how the drivers look like. Surprisingly heavy drivers - weighs a bit like a D battery. The weight is possibly due to the thick magnets.

In one of the pictures I linked, I used Brainwavz earpads on mine when I had them. With the Brainwavz pads, not too amazing but warm and pleasant. With the original pads, I found them to be very honky and bass light. Might be worth a shot if you may be interested. Oh, and the original earpads are just adhered on - if you wanted to open them up or try the pads I linked, you can peel them right off though do it slowly so that the fabric underneath don't rip. The original earpads can be re-adhered with some glue-stick.

Awesome find btw! You don't see those around very often!

u/Qubix1 · 5 pointsr/headphones

With the stock ATH-m50 pads, do they rest on your ears? The stock pads are rather small and round, not well designed for people with larger or sensitive ears. I replaced them with Brainwavz HM5 http://www.amazon.com/Brainwavz-Replacement-Memory-Foam-Earpads/dp/B00MFDT894

The pad is much more comfortable than the stock pad as it is more oval than round and my ears actually fit inside of the pad instead of touching it. The pleather is more supple and the memory foam more conforming to the side of my head. It makes a better seal and is more isolating.

u/TrackieDaks · 5 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Yep, just got myself some Brainwavz memory foam pads:

For those that have big ear and head. Here are the the [Brainwavz Earpads] (https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00MFDT894/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) that should work well with these.

From personal experience, the padding's are a must for any pair of headphones. They're just so comfy.

Edit: Check the additional promotion underneath the price. There should be an additional 15% when you purchase one or more of the padding.

u/NessInOnett · 3 pointsr/headphones

I have the m50x with the Brainwavz HM5 pads. The difference in comfort is night and day. The default pads on the m50x hurt like hell after about an hour of wear for me. The HM5 pads are little heavenly pillows. Sadly, the bass really suffers.. and I had to ramp it up a bit in software to compensate. Using mine with a Fiio E10k, even with bass boost enabled, it isn't enough to balance things out back to stock.

I've owned several over this generation. Turtle Beach XO Seven, Microsoft Stereo Headset, Astro A40, Sennheiser Game One, HyperX Cloud II, Plantronics RIG 800LX SE, HyperX Cloud Alpha, and beyerdynamic MMX 300. I keep coming back to the Cloud Alpha. $100, and it's the perfect blend of sound quality, comfort, and simple controls. I went a little further and added $30 Brainwavz HM5 earpads. Can't recommend it enough.

An audiophile's review of the Cloud Alpha: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GDeI4t7sR4g

u/poonedundies · 3 pointsr/buildapcsales

I have these and I love them. The sound quality is pretty decent. No issues hearing anything or with my friends hearing me. In audio lag either. The one thing I will recommend is changing the ear pad. The new pads help change the sound and provide a ton more comfort.


u/ZeosPantera · 3 pointsr/headphones

Don't forget if you want these to FEEL good you have to spend twice as much.. As you need the $19.50 Brainwavz pads to throw on them.

u/ZeM3D · 3 pointsr/headphones

Pads are easy to replace. These should fit and not alter the sound too much.

u/micahz3 · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

A similar thread showed up around summer this year that prompted me to up my audio game. At the time I had a Logitech G630 headset and the mic boom stopped staying up so I needed a replacement. It was good luck that I saw that thread! I bought Tascam TH02-B with these replacement pads. Also got Blue Snowball and FiiO E10K DAC. I love my audio setup now!

u/shakeysanchez · 2 pointsr/headphones

I bought these for my PRO700MK2's and I absolutely love them. Totally changed my experience with the headphones.

M50x Pads

u/Hitorijanae · 2 pointsr/headphones

My suggestion is the Audio Technica ATH-M50x. They're $129 new or $109 refurbished. I'd recommend getting the refurbished because you really should get the Brainwavz Pads as the ones they come with are kinda shitty.

u/Grandmastersexsay69 · 2 pointsr/WindowsMR

Headset first then the headphones. I assume you took off the stock headphones? I also use these, they make it a lot more comfortable.


u/pizzor · 2 pointsr/PowerMetal

As someone who loves his pair of m50x's, I suggest you try out swapping the ear pads if you haven't already. I've got these ones, and I find they sound quite a bit nicer than the stock ones, if less bassy (which is fine for me as I'm not one for lots of bass). They are also way more comfortable and you don't have to worry about your ears pressing against the inside foam.

u/dasaxguy · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

You go on Amazon, spend like 20 dollars on a color you like, and then the headphones become the most comfortable things ever.


u/Kerry56 · 2 pointsr/headphones

Brainwavz HM-5 pads fit the 7506. I wouldn't get the velour pads though, they might change the sound too much. Stick to the regular pleathor pads.

u/mongie- · 2 pointsr/headphones

The ATH-M40x with the pads swapped for the Brainwavz pleather pads are really great even though in price are a good amount under what the 598s normally are. I swap between them and my 598s all the time.

There's quite a bit more bass on the M40x. Highs are somewhat similar, maybe slightly more relaxed on the 598s. I usually use the M40xs for gaming and in loud environments and the 598s when I want my ears to breath (your ears can get hot with no air to go in and out of the can) and just want to have music in the background. I personally like the M40xs more for most music when I want have it in the foreground, but both are great.

u/EmperorNarwhale · 2 pointsr/Rainbow6

If you can, get a pair of headphones and a separate microphone. They will blow any "premium gaming headset" out of the water. Gaming headsets are typically closed-back headsets, which limits your sound stage. You'll want a piar of open-back headphones. They also have to cram a lot more inside the headphones which typically results in something being of lower quality.

It seems you're on Xbox one, so you'll need one of the controllers with a 3.5mm headphone jack.

If you're on PS4, you can use the same items I have listed, and if you're on PC you don't need the splitter.

One of the best pair of headphones you can get is this one. The Audio Technica ATH M50x.

Then get an antilion modmic. It attaches right to your headphones with no hassle.

Then get this thing so you can use the headphones and microphone on your xbox one controller. (Yes, it works on Xbox One.)

All you have to do is plug your headphones and microphone into the splitter, and your splitter into your xbox one controller. Way better than a gaming headset, and way cheaper too.

You can even get better earpads for better comfort, if you want.

u/gacres57 · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

I had them on my M50Xs. Got them from Amazon here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Brainwavz-Replacement-Memory-Foam-Earpads/dp/B00MFDT894/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1491925718&sr=8-5&keywords=brainwavz

BTW, cute dog :D I quit playing games due to school so thats why I suddenly stopped playing CS a few months ago when we used to play

u/danesnick · 2 pointsr/buildapc

To add to this. I'd recommend the M40x over the M50x. On sales, the M40x can get as low as $65 (compared to $99 on a M50x on sale).

The main differences are some of the swiveling features of the ear cups, (90 vs 180 degree rotation), some slightly higher quality materials on the m50x, and more bass on the m50x (while the m40x tend to be more neutral). Overall, you don't lose much in terms of sound quality with the m40x.

They're both horribly uncomfortable for long periods. To fix this, I'd recommend the Brainwavz HM5 pads: http://www.amazon.com/Brainwavz-Replacement-Memory-Foam-Earpads/dp/B00MFDT894/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1458928106&sr=8-1&keywords=brainwavz+hm5

They fit both headphones and make them infinitely more comfortable. You do lose some isolation/bass if that's a concern for you.

That being said, if you live in an environment where you can get away with Openback cans, I'd go with the HD 558/598's over the M40/50x's.

u/fuzzypeter · 2 pointsr/gifs

I don't, sorry. But, you can swap the pads out for these, I've heard they can help if you find the original pads to be uncomfortable.

u/vkgfx · 2 pointsr/headphones

When I used the HM5 pads that everyone here raved about, I found that it cooled off my ears considerably. The MDR-7506 keeps a very close contact with your ears, whereas these are so big that there's room to breath. These would seem ideal but they're out of stock on Amazon so you might have to look elsewhere.

Pure velour always seems to exacerbate the problem for me. I don't have issues with the HD598 or HD600, but they also have way more roominess than MDR-7506s have. As a direct comparison, I tried some Massdrop velour pads on my M50x in a desperate attempt to make them comfortable, and I found them to be pretty muggy and hot. When I switched to the pleather HM5 pads, they became cooler, more comfortable, and sounded better. The velour on my DT770s actually makes my head hot despite the roominess because there's tons of velour surface area touching your head, so I think the velour HM5 pads might have the same issue but I'd enjoy hearing what someone else says.

For $20 shipped, the pleather HM5 pads are incredible IMO.

u/MrEleventy · 2 pointsr/headphones

Brainwavz HM5 pads will fit the 550s.

u/kevikev · 2 pointsr/buildapcsales

Not sure how you feel about replacement ear cushions, but supposedly, these work on all of the Arctis series:


u/Oddb411 · 2 pointsr/headphones

How do these compare to the ATH-M40x? I've had those since November and the reviews I read suggested the M40x were more neutral sounding so I went with those. But seeing the M50x go on sale so often for the same price has made me question if I made the right choice in going with the lower end model. For reference, I'm using them with the Brainwavz HM5 pleather ear pads.

u/MooseChamp · 2 pointsr/buildapcsales

These are open back so they change the sound signatue. I mainly use mine for gaming so that isn't too much of an issue for me.

As for prolonged use, I'd say someone could wear these for a long time, they are definitely deeper than the original pads. But if you're ears perk out more than normal then take a look at the other suggested pads such as this. Every now and then I'd take off my headphones but that is more of an issue with humidity than soreness. I am not saying that there isn't any soreness, this slight soreness would come

My only real gripe with these particular pads is that they are slightly too large for the headphones and therefore the pads can rotate around changing it's orientation. It is simple to change them back, almost second nature.

u/singergiant · 2 pointsr/headphones

I've had my M50x's for like ~1.5 years now and just recently upgraded the earpads to these. definitely worth it.

u/GymothyCharles · 2 pointsr/headphones

The Audio Technica ATH M40x is quite popular in that price range, however, they have been recommended with the Brainwavz HM5 Pads. Another option is the Sennheiser Urbanite(On Ear), which is a little bassier than the M40x, but, in my opinion, looks a little nicer. You can also do some browsing around the sub, and visit/comment on the Daily Purchase Advise thread.

Happy hearing!

u/PotusThePlant · 2 pointsr/Argaming

No tenes muchas opciones buenas, por un lado tenes estos Sony que son muy conocidos (el cable es no removible lamentablemente) y sino los [Audio Technica M40X] (https://www.amazon.fr/Audio-Technica-ATH-M40X-Casque-professionnel-d%C3%A9tachable/dp/B00HVLUR54/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1523577512&sr=8-1&keywords=audio+technica+m40x). A este ultimo lo estoy usando ahora mismo y me parecen muy buenos pero es medio obligatorio cambiarle las almohadillas por algo como esto, se que son medio caras pero son comodisimas. No significa que con las almohadillas stock son inusables pero si son incomodas despues de usarlas un largo rato.

EDIT: Aca tenes un review de los sony y este es uno de los M40x.

EDIT 2: Estuve probando los pads stock para ver que cambiaba en sonido y te digo que a mi me gustan mucho mas con los pads que te puse en el link. El interior de las almohadillas stock me toca la oreja, son mucho mas duras y siento que el sonido es como mucho mas angosto (no se como decirlo, es como que todos los instrumentos estan juntos), tambien los bajos suenan mucho mas fuertes y yo soy de preferir un sonido un poco mas neutral. Dicho eso, los pads HM5 comunes te reducen los bajos (bastante, yo lo subo un poco con ecualizador), aumentan los detalles y te dan mejor separacion y todo esto aparte de ser mucho mas comodos. Te dejo una foto a modo de comparacion (derecha stock, izquierda hm5).

u/peebeearr · 2 pointsr/HyperX

I use these: https://www.amazon.com/Brainwavz-Replacement-Memory-Foam-Earpads/dp/B00MFDT894. They're a bit annoying to initially put on the headphones, but I assure you they do fit, and are waaaay more comfortable.

If you end up using these, I can also give you some EQ settings that make them sound significantly better (in my opinion).

u/[deleted] · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Third party. Here are some super cheap ones, but I like this one and these
quite a bit as well. All three of these are a huge stepup and they also come in different colors.

u/Livehappy_90 · 2 pointsr/PS4

I have the Hyperx Cloud 2 and they would hurt my ears after about 30 mins I guess my ears stick out more than most and they were sitting against the hard part in the headset so I ordered some new ear pads that were a lot thicker and that solved the problem.

These are the replacements. http://www.amazon.com/Brainwavz-Replacement-Memory-Foam-Earpads/dp/B00MFDT894/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1463169375&sr=8-4&keywords=brainwavz

u/Crimtide · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Pretty sure you can buy aftermarket ear pads like these and try them, they might give more padding, more space. Brainwavz replacement ear pads .. I use Brainwavz on my DT990s and they are lots better than the stock ones.

u/dstlny_97 · 2 pointsr/HyperX

Slightly yes. I had the Cloud 2's before my Alpha. You can get deeper from HypeeX if you request them, or you can get even deeper through Ebay for like £20 - these

regular hm5 memory foam pads are also on lightning deal sale for $13 right now

u/getprank3d · 2 pointsr/HyperX

A (sort of) comprehensive guide on the most popular hyper x headsets

I have alpha and it is good but I had to buy brainwavz hm5 pleather pads because my ears touched the drivers. This is relatively expensive (22.5 us). I also wanted surround, so I got the dongle for the revolver s but it was very staticky so I returned it. Other than that, now the stereo is good, with good clarity because of the dual chamber driver, although you might hear static unless you put it to studio quality in Windows.
They also only come in black and red, and the cable twists up a lot, so I twist tied down the part of it I don't use.

From what I heard, there is more bass on the revolver and revolver s but the headband causes ambient sound absorbtion issues, and the s has surround but again, for me the dongle didn't work, so I'm not sure for you.

My friend has the cloud 2 and he said he gets static with the dongle too, but aside from that, they are basically the alpha but more comfortable without replacement pads, surround sound, extra velour pads in the box, a carrying case and worse sound quality and mic quality then the alpha. These come in black and red, and gunmetal.

The original clouds I don't know much about, but I'm pretty sure they are the same as the cloud 2 without the replacement pads and worse mic and sound quality. Black and red and black and white colors as well

The flights from what I've heard are similar to the alpha, with the same comfort issue (still compatible with brainwavz hm5 pads), wireless, but with some permanent static, because they are wireless a mute on the side of the headphones and good battery life.

The stingers are the best headset for a budget and are basically cloud 1s but with worse everything (build quality, sound and mic) and cost 50 usd.

Other than that, I don't know anything about the cloud core or the cloud x (specifically for Xbox).

If you have the money to spend, (122.5 usd plus tax) I recommend the cloud alpha, the brainwavz hm5 pleather/memory foam pads, and in windows, changing the advanced audio settings to 48 khz studio mode, but take this with a grain of salt.

For reference, the replacement pads all take a few minutes to stretch on to the alphas and flights

Brainwavz hm5 pleather/memory foam link (more comfortable, smaller soundstage then velour, same sound quality as vanilla pads)


Brainwavz hm5 velour pads (better soundstage, less comfortable then pleather/memory foam pads), also a dust magnet


Brainwavz hm5 hybrid pads (not recommended, but in between velour and pleather. It is better to stick with one or the other, this one isn't very good


there is also a sheepskin model, but I don't know if it will stretch well to fit or have sound differences.
Also the angled and circular hm5 pads will not fit, so don't get those.
Sheepskin link


Good luck with the purchase.
Sorry my formatting sucks I'm on mobile.

EDIT: While I was typing this, the other guy described the sound of the alphas, 1s and 2s good, so read that post as well.

u/ArcaneZorro · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

Here you go

I've had these since september and they're still flawless. I've went through two other sets of other brands and these are so much better. Hope you enjoy!

u/speedx77 · 1 pointr/ZReviews


The pads are still hard against my head despite being "memory foam." I certainly prefer the sound with the stock pads, they're just not too comfortable. When I move my head I can hear the inside middle of the material moving I think. It's hard to describe but it's this crackling sound and I think it comes from the cheap quality of the pads/ the middle material.

Edit: They just feel larger and heavier and I preferred the lighter feel of the stock pads.

Edit 2: The HM5's do reduce the clamp, but it's certainly there. And the loss of clamp is converted into weight.

Edit 3: The HM5's just make the M40x's sound SAD

u/shooterboss · 1 pointr/Corsair

They hurt my ears too until I replaced the earcups with thicker ones that went around my earlobes. The clamping pressure is somewhat heavy, granted.

oh sorry buddy forgot to answer. It is a Brainwavz Hybrid Memory Foam, but I would recommend this one as the hybrid seem to lose a little bit of noise isolation.

u/theograd · 1 pointr/headphones

Yeah I did the same thing, not sure which ones I ended up using but as you can see I'm using one of these


I'm using either https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07CYRHZNR or https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00MFDT894 I forget which I ended up using to be honest, ordered both when I ordered the headphones.

Still feels uncomfortable. I feel like I'm doing something wrong here.

u/infinityLAO · 1 pointr/headphones

amazon, they offer a lot of pads that you can check the reviews to see if the sound quality trade off that certain set of pads comes with is worth it for your comfort. I personally got these

u/EinTheVariance · 1 pointr/headphones

yes, get the brainwavz replacement pads and they should fit just fine. As I mentioned, they are a little tight but they fit just fine. I and many others have used them in the Steelseries H Wireless.

To clarify the different versions you could get for this brand:

velor: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00MFDX4YO

pleather: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00MFDT894

Pick one and either should fit fine. If you really don't believe me, here's a review someone did on the velor version with pics of it on the H Wireless:


As for differences between velor and pleather. Pleather may get warm around your ears although it's not a big deal. It seals noise better and is basically maintenance free. The velor version is a lot cooler (temperature wise) around your ears due to the material and feels way more comfortable overall but doesn't seal noise as well and attracts lint/dust, etc so may require washing or using a lint roller once in a while.

I just bought these ear pads for my m40x Audio Technicas (https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B00MFDT894/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_image_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) They don't sound close to as good but are damn comfortable, I just bought a new amp, will this help with audio quality. Also my sound card in my motherboard is really bad and can't power them to begin with so will it help with the volume as well? This is the Amp that I got. https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B00LP3AMC2/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_image_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Yeah, I'm pretty sure the Brainwavz pads have never gone below $15. You definitely ordered fakes. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00MFDT894/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I had the same problem with the M2, my ears would ache after a long session. I replaced the pads with the Brainwavz pads and now they're the most comfortable pair of cans I've ever own.

I strongly recommend these replacement ear pads

u/Mad_Economist · 1 pointr/CabaloftheBuildsmiths

Alright, I can work with that.

To preface this, I recommend pairing one of the following headphones with a clip-on microphone - either a cheaper model like a [Zalman ZM-Mic1] (http://www.amazon.com/Zalman-Zm-Mic1-Sensitivity-Headphone-Microphone/dp/B00029MTMQ) or a more expensive model like [Antlion's Modmic] (http://www.modmic.com/collections/frontpage) - rather than getting a headset with an integrated mic. From a price/performance standpoint, headsets almost never stack up. The headsets made by the real headphone brands are exceedingly expensive, and with a very small body of exceptions the cheaper headsets sound terrible.

Now, onward to the headphones. When I hear "isolation", "comfort", and "neutral/warm sound signature", the first thing that comes to my mind is [NVX's] (http://www.head-fi.org/t/624729/review-nvx-xpt100-a-direct-brainwavz-hm5-competitor) [XPT100] (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J2G9qk7IOEA) ([$99 via Amazon] (http://www.amazon.com/NVX-Over-Ear-Headphones-ComfortMax-Cushions/dp/B0093PVTPS)). I actually own a pair of these myself for use as moderate isolation movie/podcast headphones for when my house is too loud for me to use my open headphones, and they're among the most comfortable headphones I've had. While they don't take the top spot - no headphones without an AKG-style suspension strap will ever do that - they're definitely in the top five or so. Their sound isn't the most detailed out there, but they're fairly neutral, solidly built, and very comfortable, particularly given their price.

A more expensive step up would be [Shure's] (http://www.head-fi.org/products/shure-srh840/reviews/5056) SRH[840] (http://www.head-fi.org/products/shure-srh840/reviews/3768) ([$199 via Amazon] (http://www.amazon.com/Shure-SRH840-Professional-Monitoring-Headphones/dp/B002DP8IEK/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1426324378&sr=1-1&keywords=shure+srh84)). While I sadly haven't had a chance to try these out myself, I've heard little but good things about them. Formerly on Innerfidelity's wall of fame, and with consistently good reviews for their sound, comfort, and overall quality, they're definitely a solid choice if you're looking for a neutralish sound with some bass.

A third option would be the [Focal Spirit One] (http://www.innerfidelity.com/content/focal-spirit-one-page-3) ([$175] (http://www.amazon.com/Focal-529102-SPOH-Spirit-One-Headphones/dp/B007AH7YFU) or [$179] (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008R9QRIU/ref=pd_lpo_sbs_dp_ss_2?pf_rd_p=1944687702&pf_rd_s=lpo-top-stripe-1&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=B007AH7YFU&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=0HS51KQ3XCE0J5B14R27) via Amazon for the black and white models, respectively). Focal has a quite a solid reputation in audio, but the Spirit One had some serious issues on its release due to manufacturing defects, and it suffered a rather bad reception as a result. These issues are said to have been since resolved, however, and the Spirit One is a very solid headphone at that price. The sound is a bit on the bassy side, but not extremely so, and is quite good for this price. Comfort may be an issue, however, as the One was quite clearly designed more for portability than comfort. While no review characterizes it as uncomfortable, it's a safe bet that it doesn't measure up to the other two in this regard.

Another rather unique option, albeit one with some inherent drawbacks, would be [Fostex's] (http://www.head-fi.org/t/570138/review-fostex-t50rp-my-intro-to-the-world-of-orthos) [T50RP] (http://www.head-fi.org/t/559233/review-fostex-t50rp-its-been-needing-a-review) ([$127 via Amazon] (http://www.head-fi.org/t/559233/review-fostex-t50rp-its-been-needing-a-review)). Now, the T50RP is, at stock, not the best-liked headphone. Though it is one of the (if not the) cheapest orthodynamic headphones in the world, its very poor comfort and [rolled-off sound] (http://www.innerfidelity.com/images/FostexT50RP2011B.pdf) have attracted a lot of criticism. Having a pair myself, I wholeheartedly agree with criticism of its comfort, but think its stock sound is better than people give it credit for. What the T50RP has going for it, however, is an [exceptionally dedicated modding community] (http://www.head-fi.org/t/618659/fostex-t50rp-incremental-mods-and-measurements), and some very high-profile modified variants. Modded T50RPs under the branding of MrSpeakers and ZMF can sell for $300, $600, or even $1,000, and experienced reviewers and audiophiles alike have claimed that they measure up to headphones in those price ranges. If you happen to feel a DIYish inclination, a T50RP can be quite a solid project to work on, and, in theory, it can get you $300-600 sound quality for a little sound of $200 accounting for the various materials it takes to mod them.

Now, there are, as said, quite a few drawbacks to the T50RP: the stock sound isn't for everyone, it requires more power to drive than the other mentioned headphones (not enough to cause issues at stock, in my opinion, but when modded it can be quite intensive to drive, almost assuredly moreso than your integrated audio can support), and it's absolutely terrible in comfort (if you do go for them, [a headband cover like this] (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00862522A/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1) and a pair of [Shure] (http://www.amazon.com/Shure-HPAEC840-Replacement-Cushions-Headphones/dp/B002Z9JWZS/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1426325351&sr=1-1&keywords=shure+pads) or [Brainwavz] (http://www.amazon.com/Brainwavz-Replacement-Memory-Foam-Earpads/dp/B00MFDT894/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1426325358&sr=1-1&keywords=brainwavz+pads) pads were what I used to take them from "terrible" to "pretty darn solid" comfort), and modding isn't for the faint of heart. After quite a while of tinkering, I've yet to get my own T50RP mod working properly. It's amazing value if you can make it work for you, but it's quite a significant amount of effort to achieve that.

I’m considering these.

Brainwavz Replacement Memory Foam Earpads - Suitable for Many Other Large Over The Ear Headphones - AKG, HifiMan, ATH, Philips, Fostex (Black) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00MFDT894/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_0DaSCb1YY54B9

Read through the specs, questions, reviews, and take a look at the user photos.

I haven’t pulled the trigger yet so I cannot personally vouch for them but it is as far as my research has taken me.

Be advised that changing ear pads will change the sound of the headphones. I changed mine on a pair of AT-M30s and because it altered the distance from the headphone to my ear, the signature of the audio output changed.

u/jdk2087 · 1 pointr/steelseries

Go with https://www.amazon.com/Brainwavz-Replacement-Memory-Foam-Earpads/dp/B00MFDT894



I went with the Brainwavez angled/leather/memory foam. Leaps and bounds better than what SteelSeries offers in terms of replacements or “upgrade.” Wore them for multiple hours before with my SS Pros and love them. No ear heat, sweat, pain or anything of that nature. Ears and side of my head felt just the same as when I put them on.

u/HesitantJam · 1 pointr/headphones

Funny you should ask, I tried this quite recently (ordered this one)

Long story short, I simply couldn't get them to fit. I suspect I ordered the wrong size because I didn't bother to check and there were several people who got it to work, but no matter how hard I tried it just wasn't big enough. I didn't see any larger sizes of the same version on Amazon either, so I was kind of confused. Wanted feel the difference though so I just put em on the earcups without actually attaching and didn't notice any immediate difference in sound (didn't listen long enough to accurately tell), though I preferred how the velours felt. I forgot how hot pleather can get.
Unfortunately I decided to just return them in the end.

Honestly, unless your stock pads are broken or you just really like pleather I can't say you're gaining much getting them. Not to mention I'm sure a lot of people will say the sound is best with stock.

If you do end up getting them, I read getting angled isn't recommended because the X2's drivers are already angled and it'll probably screw with something.

I am currently looking at buying these as replacement pads for my M50x's. Anyone used them before? I saw some mixed reviews saying how they affect the bass and the clarity of the music from the headphones?

u/hero5jungle · 1 pointr/Zeos

I accidentally bought these HM5 pads instead of the velour.
Do you think it will effect the sound? Do you think it can stretch enough to cover the ear cup?

u/FullMetalBallsack · 1 pointr/headphones

[These?] (http://www.amazon.com/Brainwavz-Replacement-Memory-Foam-Earpads/dp/B00MFDT894)

Do you just put them over the existing pads? Cause you can't remove the default ones without taking then apart and I have no idea how to do that

u/danikpanik · 1 pointr/headphones

Great move! I got the same cable for my hd380 pro's and it's wonderful. Now if you replace the stock pads with something like this, you'll be in heaven. I did it myself and it made it feel like a completely different headphone. Much, much more comfortable.

u/SleepinYeti · 1 pointr/bapcsalescanada

will probably just get these to try https://www.amazon.ca/Brainwavz-Replacement-Memory-Foam-Earpads/dp/B00MFDT894/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=brainwavz&qid=1574640134&s=electronics&sr=1-3

Does angled or the normal type matter at all? If not ill take the risk for the sound change.

u/HighQualityH2O_22 · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

The pads are apparently replaceable since CoolerMaster carries them in their store but I am unsure which Brainwavz would fit on these. (Maybe the ones that fit the M40X?)

But the stock pads are a rare breed, they are super comfy! Any reason why you would want to replace them with the Brainwavz?

u/ggabriele3 · 1 pointr/headphones

Try the Brainwavz HM5 pads: http://www.amazon.com/Brainwavz-Replacement-Memory-Foam-Earpads/dp/B00MFDT894/

They're bigger and thicker, but not as rigid, so they may conform around your glasses more nicely.

u/RickVince · 1 pointr/headphones

Hey me again, dunno if the response I sent went through so I'll send it again.

I finally got the over-the-ears Brainwavz HM5 velour replacement pads and I....really dislike them. I mean they're comfortable as hell but I really dislike the sound. There's a loss of "heavyness", if that makes sense. I'm talking about less bass of course but I don't know how to properly explain it. "Depth"...does that make sense?

Is that what you meant when you said "make the treble bight a bit", cause I don't really know what that means. Anyway, I'm thinking of maybe ordering the same replacement pads but not velour. Think that'll solve my problems? I need the heavyness back but without the on-the-ear cups that crushes my ears, so I was thinking of getting these.

I mean I actually prefer the sound of my PS3 headphone or even my 20$ skullcandy Ink'd earphones for fuck's sake, haha. The velour ones just make everything sound so "light", you know?

Sorry for bothering you. I'm just slightly frustrated and needing advice from someone who knows about this stuff.

u/handsomehawke · 1 pointr/HyperX

I don’t have the revolver s headphones but I have the cloud mix’s and I had the same problem. I bought these Brainwavz Ear Pads and they’ve been working great

u/funklahoma · 1 pointr/LogitechG

Not sure where you live, but I'm assuming since you said USD it's in the states. Amazon currently has the earpads, seemingly the same earpads even made by Logitech, for $15 with 8 good reviews.


Upon looking at other options, Brainwavs sells these replacements for other large headphones and in the questions and reviews sections, a buyer confirmed they fit on their G633 headest. Though they are a little more expensive at about $22.


u/Halluci · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

The most difficult part was getting off the adhesive from the old pads, stretching them over was also a little bit tedious but it was definitely worth it in the end because the default ear cups are very shallow. I'd estimate 80% of people's ears would touch the inner material. And yeah, I believe the red velour memory foam model is the one currently on sale on Amazon.

edit: These are the ones I got, also currently on sale https://www.amazon.com/Brainwavz-Replacement-Memory-Foam-Earpads/dp/B00MFDT894/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1499035647&sr=8-4&keywords=brainwavz+earpads

u/VaguelyHonest · 1 pointr/buildapc

I do use these for long periods of time and have large-ish ears as well so they would get a bit uncomfortable after 2-3 hours so I looked on amazon for some earpads that were larger than the original pads and found [these](Brainwavz Replacement Memory Foam Earpads - Suitable For Many Other Large Over The Ear Headphones - AKG, HifiMan, ATH, Philips, Fostex https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00MFDT894/ref=cm_sw_r_other_awd_vwA9wbMZNXWR7) which are $20 and made my experience with the headphones much better and I can wear them for almost as long as I want without discomfort. Also the earpads make for much less sound leaking in my experience.

u/G65434-2_II · 1 pointr/headphones

Well, those pleathers on Amazon have 34% off on them, and depending on where you are, you pay X amount of monies for shipping. For example, for me it's "$14.37 Shipping & Import Fees Deposit to Finland".

(Btw, anyone have experience on that import fees deposit thing? To me seems like Amazon's version of Ebay's global shipping program, i.e. another money-grabbing borderline scam of fees they invented themselves)

I've read good things about the hybrids, but haven't used them myself. However, I got the pleathers on my AKG K240M (the thick ones, same as in that Amazon link above), and they're awesome. I can't see why the hybrids would be any less so.

u/PRAGMATIC_BROGRAMMER · 1 pointr/headphones

It's not an upgrade, it's a 'sidegrade'. They're the same level of headphones, just one is open, and one is closed.

The M50X is an extremely popular headphone, perhaps the most popular in it's class, but in enthusiast circles it gets mixed opinions -- some would say there are better options at this price point from Beyerdynamic, AKG, Shure, and others. More than a few die-hard audiophiles shun them altogether. But if you look in any review from an electronics publication (moreso than an audiophile-specific publication), they will talk about them like they are handed down from the virgin Mary.

The sound signature is bass-forward and the mids are known to be somewhat lacking.

I like the M50x myself, the one thing that I would suggest is that you make sure that you're aware of -- from a comfort standpoint, the headphones greatly benefit from replacement of the pads, especially if you have larger ears. So expect to spend another $20 or so on new pads. I use Brainwavz Memory Foam. These will make the headphones much more comfortable and reduce the bass a little bit (as these are bass-boosted headphones, the bass will still be a good bit boosted). If you find the headphones still too bassy (I don't), you could get velour pads or 'hybrid' pads which would reduce the bass further.

I think it's a good choice if you are looking for a closed headphone similar in quality to the AD700, especially if you want another AT. You do need to be aware that there are inherent differences in open vs closed headphones and that closed headphones will never sound like open headphones.

FWIW, I read/watched 1000 good reviews on M50x, bought them, and then read/watched a few bad ones while they were shipping. I got buyers remorse before they even arrived and started freaking out. Especially 'Zeos' Z Reviews (whom I think is /r/headphones regular) youtube review made me ill and thinking I had made a horrible decision. But when I got them, I was really happy with them! I don't have a setup like many of the folks on here and I'm not a serious audiophile but they seem amazing to me (I also have a 12 year old pair of Shure IEMs which are the only other nice headphones that I've had), and I listen to primarily electronic music and hip-hop -- which the sound signature of the M50x fits very well.

u/chocolateraiin · 1 pointr/HyperX

so are you saying to choose alphas but get replacement earpads? specifically these ones?

u/ekzu · 1 pointr/HyperX

I have had my Cloud Alphas for 4 months now and had those ear pains at the beginning and was thinking of buying ear pads, but I didn't. Well now past month my ears started hurting again and when sleeping if I moved my head my ears hurt so much that I couldn't sleep. I looked in mirror and I had red ares on both ears and some of my skin was ripping. Then I went and bought these Brainwavz pads. Shipping was going to take 2 weeks so I read some tips and placed tissue paper under those old pads and that helped a little.

Well I received new pads today but oh man it was pain in the ass to try install them. It took me 40-60 mins to put them on and I took 2 breaks. The way that worked for me was that I placed my finger in the earpad and try to push that lip in the gap, well when you have done 50% of that you need to hold the other half steady and pull HARD on the other end to get that lip in there. I was scared that my headphones would break or the earpad to rip.

In the end all went ok and I'm using most comfortable headphones ever! And I love the sound of Cloud Alphas, that's why I didn't buy new ones. I had Cloud II for 2 years and I can say that the sound difference is immense and Alphas has better bass + with these earpads the bass is boosted a bit.

u/messiach21 · 1 pointr/AVexchange

They are the basic pleather pads - not the cowhide or whatever new fangled ones Brainwavz has.

They are basically these ones: https://www.amazon.com/Brainwavz-Replacement-Memory-Foam-Earpads/dp/B00MFDT894/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1486532089&sr=8-3&keywords=HM5+earpads

u/Zednix · 1 pointr/ZReviews

It might depend on your ear size and how comfy they feel for you out of the box. My gf loves them and she has a tiny ear so the pads work well. I have huge ears so I went with the Brainwavz on mine since they are much bigger and the fit great.

Also one thing to keep in mind is they do have a proprietary 2.5mm lock in connection in the headset that can be removed with a size zero or double-zero philips screw driver and you can find mod videos on youtube as a guide. I did it to mine if anyone needs help.

Not sure where in EU you are, but here are some links for the Brainwavz replacement pads. They come in angled or non-angled and many different colours. UK DE

The stock ear pads are junk and your ears will hurt after an hour of use. Do yourself a favor and spend $20 on different pads and the MX50 become an amazing set of headphones.

No problem mate.

A lot of people who buy the DT series pop HM5 pads onto them for better isolation/bass. If you do end up getting them, I highly recommend.

Let me rephrase: Not only are the cloud 2's the best headphones I own for gaming, but they are far and above the best headphones i own for music as well. Im talking like 5x better than my other $200 headphones. They have plenty of bass, but its tight, clean and articulate bass instead of boomy unfocused bass. You will hear stuff listening to these that you didn't even know existed using the Sonys. They really are that good, I promise. this is coming from someone who records music, plays music, and appreciates the quality of expensive studio equipment. The reason these are so good as a "gaming" headset is that they are just rebranded Takstar pro 80s. I haven't tried lucid sound, but I hear they are just OK. Try the clouds, man. They will get your foot in the hifi door and you might use them for a looong time because another big jump in quality is going to start at $300 and up, no joke.

It's actually Brainwavz that makes the pads. Another amazing qulaity company for how cheap they are. I use the all leather style ones, but they make velour types too. I think these alsxo enhance the sound a bit and make the sound stage seem a bit bigger. The picture doesn't do justice. They are big and oh so soft. Every time I put my headphones on its like a little treat. https://www.amazon.com/Brainwavz-Replacement-Memory-Foam-Earpads/dp/B00MFDT894/ref=sr_1_sc_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1468621948&sr=1-2-spell&keywords=braiunwavz+pads

So recently, my super amazingly HD439's have begun to fall apart. It's stretched, torn and the cable is mangled (the 10ft cable is the only one I have left). I was looking at replacements and for a long time I have been drooling over the HD598's but I'm really looking to get into the leather/pleather earcups as the felt gets uncomfortable after long period. I found the Brainwavz Replacement Pads that are like a pleather material + memory foam and people are saying that should work. So I come to Reddit to ask, should I do that? Has anyone done this?

I have the same rings from mod hause audio but the aftermarket angled hm5 pads don't fit. Did you buy the original hm5 pads? i.e these ones? https://www.amazon.com/Brainwavz-Replacement-Memory-Foam-Earpads/dp/B00MFDT894/ref=sr_1_2?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1519264678&sr=8-2&keywords=hm5+pads

I'm offering $150 cause I'm including memory foam earcups and the inline mic cable that don't originally with the headphones.
