I'm new to the world of over ear headphones, I've always been an IEM guy. I got these for the portability & case, and to use on Bluetooth to listen to podcasts around my apartment.
My issue is the pads on here make my ears WARM. Gets really uncomfortable after about an hour, which is less time than most the podcasts I listen to. Does anyone have a recommendation for replacement pads on these? Being new to the over ear world are there standard sizes? I didn't see anything on the packaging.
I was going to say the same thing about the ear pads and that is the only thing stopping me from using them more I wish someone had replied to you. It has been over a month since your question so maybe you got a fix for yourself?
I ordered some of the Brainwavz linked above but still waiting on delivery. I'll let you know if they fit (I _think_ they should).
Generally some sheep skin pads will be more comfortable/breathable than the cheap faux leather that these came with.
So, I have these headphones, and in general I find the sound, design etc. pretty good for everyday use...
..all but the factory pads. If these have the original version's thin pads, then they are too thin (for my ears).
I ordered similar Brainwavz to those linked above, but the hybrid model (pleather/velour). Of note:
- They are WAY more comfortable.
- They are less sound isolating.
- They fit great, but are way larger than the originals, almost ridiculously so, and you have to smush them a bit to get the headphones in the case.
- The headphones sound quite a bit warmer/bassier than with the stock pads (a bit too much so, IMHO)
The all-leather brainwavz may isolate a bit better, and not warm the sound quite so much, but I'm considering moving these pads to another headset,and trying the $10 pads from MEE (assuming they are back in stock now).
Brainwavz on left, stock pads on right. You were correct about the comical size @JayBP
Totally changes the fit and finish. Comfort and sound isolation both noticeably improved by swapping them out. I'm actually noticing how muddy and crappy the bass sounds on these cans now, haha, so take that for what it is worth. Still getting use as a Bluetooth option for me around the house when active/not seated.
Also no way I'm trying to cram these in the case they came with now.
