Having previously posted in these discussions and been asked about the BLON B8 compared to the Sivga SV006, I acquired a new (revised model) B8 and can confirm: The B8 is identical to the SV006 - just unbranded. The original B8's headband-too-large issue has been corrected with this updated model, which also has a narrower sound-stage compared to the original model. The only catch is, the uncomfortable and sound-hindering stock pads absolutely must be replaced. After experimenting with over a dozen pad models, I recommend the Brainwavz Angled PU Leather Pads, which result in a large soundstage and overall balanced sound. Although they lack in the aspect of ventilation, these synthetic 'pleather' pads don't sound bloated or dark, as with real leather pads . Honorable mentions:
  • The 'dark grey velour' pads from a brand called misodiko (Amazon item B07QWZYTGF). These pads provide a good center-image - excellent with vocal tracks - but somewhat tame the bass response.

  • Brainwavz' Micro Suede Pads breathe result in a rather dry sound, with a smaller sound-stage... but everything about the sound is under control and precise.
The best pads for the original 'too-large-of-a-headband' B8 are the 'Velvet' pads from a brand called LTYIVABHTTW (Amazon item B07FN78WBS). They keep the bass and treble in check, but the real benefit is sound-stage magic! (I've never heard such a specious sound from a closed-back headphone. And these pads also sound great with the currently-sold B8.) I'll go out on a limb and say that the BLON B8 is among the best general-purpose, wired, closed-back headphones under $500 - as long as you pad-swap.

They're perpetually $60 on AliExp. I don't see why anyone should buy it here

I got these from Aliexpress during the 11/11 sales. Build quality on these HP are actually quite solid. I gave it a quick listen then immediately swapped out the earpads as suggested by the community. The soundstage widens very noticibly, without loss in bass and the fit on my head improved!! Get them simultaneously with the earpads. Here are the ones I got, https://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/OqLWW3ZO

Do these sound just like the Sivga sv006? I saw Zeos's review on them and I'm tempted to get them. If they do I'll jump on em. (the Sivga's on aliexpress go for 95usd)

Just got mine, very good, only con is a loss of SPL ~8kHz (noticed doing a sine sweep, not listening to music). It’s pretty light too. EDIT: Vocals sound a bit echoey. But for the price, I didn’t expect wonders.

Alright, Drop will ship 27th of Dec, and Black Friday is coming (Nov 29). These will be on sale for $60 on AliExpress. Just buy them there, and you'll probably get them before Drop even ships. ($58 if you count the $2 coupon AliExpress gives on Black Friday). Or heck, they're $65 right now, so you can just pick them up now you're in a hurry. Whenever you buy anything China from Drop, always check other sites for prices. Often times, you can buy them at the same, if not, cheaper price without having to wait as long. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32871306960.html

Hmm, doesn't seem to be working for me. Where did you get the coupon? I'm from SEA, maybe it's region specific?

It doesn't matter where you are. I live in Korea. If you sign up with the link I sent you, you will get a coupon.

I'm very happy with these. I added the microsuede Brainwavz pads, some Dekoni Nuggets that I had lying around, and let them burn in for 36 hours on shuffle of all my music. So I'm basically into them for $100, and they sound and feel great. The Nuggets (stick-on pad cushions) help the fit with my smaller head and are super comfortable.

How well do those things stick to the headband? I've seen mixed reviews about that on the Amazon page.

Mine are fine so far, and I remember the adhesive seeming pretty sticky when I put them on.
