Soft and thick
These are better than the stock ear pads that comes with the M50x. Thicker and more plush giving a nicer touch. Down side with this is that I find it itchy after prolonged use but not as sweaty as the stock pleather one.

Comfortable
Very soft and comfortable! I've had these for years and they're still doing just fine. The material on the bottom of my headband started to wear out before these have shown any real signs of wear.

Decent pads but not amazing.
Going on 4 years with these pads on my ath-m50x, one thing I can say is they've held up better than the stock pads which flaked off within a couple years. But for the price (I think I paid $25 here on drop) they are pretty underwhelming. They are not offensive in any way but nothing about them feels high quality. The padding and "velour" both feel cheap to me and I imagine you can find something that meets or beats the quality of these for a cheaper price. These are a $15 set of pads at most imo. For my ears they are also a bit small but this is common with the ath-m50x. All that said I have worn the crap out of these headphones and pads for many many hours of gaming and general pc use and I never felt like I couldn't stand them. Pictured is an unfiltered look at a 4 year old set of these pads that I've never cleaned (I know I know). I recently ordered a set of brainwavs prostock sheepskin pads so these will be getting retired.

Highly Recommend for Long Sessions
These make it possible to wear the 150's all day long without a ton of ear strain (is that a thing?). Anyway, would highly recommend!

Superb comfort
I've spent 6-10 hours a day for the last two years in these earpads. They are supremely comfortable and I recomend them highly. They're a big improvement over the stock earpads, which get hot and sweaty after a couple of hours. The only downside is that the sound leakage in both directions is a little bit more than with the stock pleather pads, so their utility in noisy environments like planes and cars is diminished somewhat.

Comfortable and soft.
I wish they were a little bit bigger, otherwise they are very comfortable and softer than the original pads on the headphones.

Comfortable replacement pads
Original pads on my ATH-M50X headphones were ok but they got hot after a short period of time so I bought these to see if they would be a bit cooler. They do help a bit in that regard. Sound was largely unchanged.

Not for big ears
I have larger than average ears and earlobes, and these ear pads don't have enough width or separation from the headphones, so the plastic parts rub on my ears.

Good But Not Preferable
A few years ago, I used someone's M50x headphones which had incredibly comfortable ear pads covered in what looked like Muppet stubble. When I asked about them, they told me they had simply worn through the original pads' PU leather entirely. I didn't believe them, so I started looking for something similar. These are similar but not the same. They're also not as comfortable, but short of tearing up a set of original pads, this is a close as I can find to what I'd experienced before. They also don't seal in or out sound as well as the originals, so that's less than ideal. For what they are, these pads are fine, but I've since found that I vastly prefer thicker ear pads for both comfort and sound quality. I now use two sets of Wicked Cushions as my main pads: the regular and velour hybrid styles, depending on the weather. Behold a comparison between the WC Hybrid Velour pad (right ear, lower-left) and this Dropped product (left ear, upper-right) on the ATH-M40x headphones (Matte Gray, off-head).
