I typed out the whole process in the comment box but this well designed website took me somewhere else when drag and dropping the second picture, and deleted the whole thing after pressing back. Oh well, here is my 2-year-old pair of M50x after installing the new earpads and the other modifications I was talking about. The headband looked filthy and was peeling off (you know what I'm talking about if you own these), and the pads were beginning to do the same.
Enjoy.

What did you wrap the headband in? It looks awesome.

I wrapped it in 550 paracord. I got the idea from someone on reddit who did the same thing since the cheap pleather on these headphones starts to flake and it makes a mess. I detailed the whole process on a comment but it got lost, but you can search for said reddit post quite easily. If I were to do it all over again, I'd wrap the headband before I even started using the cans for the first time. I'm also looking for a headband sock so I can remove that to clean it, since I wrapped the headband in a pretty secure way.

Hey! I've tried to search for this on reddit for a while, and I can't seem to find it. Mind if you can link it to me, my dude? :)

Yeap. https://www.reddit.com/r/headphones/comments/5w32ce/fixed_the_headband_on_my_athm50s_with_some_thick/
The gist of it is winding the paracord around the headband, but I used 550 instead of the thicker 750 that BoxxZero used so it has some quirks that I explained in my deleted post. I also couldn't find a tiny screwdriver so I had to do something different than using the plastic keepers to hold the ends of the paracord. Hope this helps
