I find the foam earpads extremely uncomfortable as well, which is why I rarely use my SR-80's. Plus the light weight of the headphones paired with the thick cables means the headphones are easily pulled off with the slightest movement. With that said though, I do enjoy the sound of these headphones and will probably join the drop. I think these are a good deal at the drop price; I don't think I've ever seen Grados on sale.
Are there better substitutes out there for the foam earpads? google seems to turn up nothing
That's what I came here to find out.
Got a crazy privileged anti-globalization rant on personal purchasing preference of sub-par American craftsmanship instead.
Would totally click discussion again.
Ditto. I wanted to ask the same thing as you two. That being said, I didn't find the rant crazy. Childish is the word I'd use. Seen better trolling in my days :D
Amazon has various options for you. As I have said in my comment, I have made mine circumaural as that's the style of headphone I prefer anyways.
The foam pads I got were very comfortable.
I've also seen a mod out there which looks like someone can put on the Beyerdynamic velour pads on there... though I don't know how much work would go into that mod.
velour pads like @solomon_tingsam_li said. People have mentioned making sock pads like in
or something similar to what @Ecca posted in his pic.
Those look hot, like will make my ear sweat.
