    Better than the stock pads

    Put these on several sets of MDR-7506 (Sony) and feel like they are major upgrade at the same price as the stock Sony. Would never replace with the Sony pads again.

    Loves it!

    I wouldn't say I'm "blown away" as the five-star rating suggests, but I'm loving everything about them so far. They feel good, I'm definitely hearing stuff I haven't heard before in the music I'm playing, they installed easily, and these don't seem to be as prone to wear as the factory pads on my V6's. All good!

    Awesome on Sony MDR-7506

    Just put these on a pair of Sony MDR-7506 headphones as replacements for the old pair (which wore out 3 times). I don't suspect these will tear and wear out as quickly as those. My immediate impression when I put them on was "Wow, it's really quiet. Where did the room noise go?" Then I listened to a track I'm familiar with and instantly noticed increased bass response, likely due to there being a slightly greater distance from the headphones to ears. Great purchase, and cheaper than stock Sony replacements. Highly recommend!!

    Comortable Pads

    Absolutely solved my quandary of having great sound with my ATH-M50, but not the greatest comfort. These pads really did the trick and my sales rep/customer service rep could not have been more helpful.

    Easy to put on and no disassembly required to install. Snug? Well yes it is, but if not , they would not be so comfortable.

    perfect fit for ath m50

    made my ath m50's a thousand times more comfortable
    a tiny bit snug going on but in the end a perfect fit
    no more sweaty ears :)

    I couldn't be happier with the pads or sweetwaters service
    5 stars!

    Put these on my Sony 7506's. WOW! Very comfortable. I love these!

    I had to wait for about 6 months as they were on backorder. (Not Sweetwater's fault) As they are manufactured in Europe, and they had some kind of backlog.

    Worth the wait! I purchased these to replace my pads that were falling apart. Had I known how NICE these were, I would have replaced the stock earpads long time ago. Schweeeet!

    Great replacement

    I bought these to replace the earpads on my Monoprice 8323's. My ears are larger than average, and the original pleather pads would cause ear soreness on the outer parts of my ears after about an hour. I swapped the originals with these velour pads, and the comfort level has significantly improved. The ear gap is slightly larger, and the velour applies less pressure to my ears. I can now wear these all day (at work) with no pain, and they look great to boot. Regarding the sound-- these did slightly decrease the mid-range response of the 8323's, which was a little disappointing, but the trade-off on comfort is worth it.

    soft and comfortable

    These are a great replacement to the stocked ear pads on my Sony MDR-V6.
    No more eat sweat, so that means I'll be able to wear the headphones much much longer.
    I didn't hear any improvement in sound, as some have suggested, but that's alright.

    dt250 pads on sony 7506

    I have never really liked my Sony 7506's ..but they had performed well as tracking phones for a loooong time and the earpads were coming apart ..a little googling showed that these dt250 pads would fit. WOW previously I would EQ them with +4 long shelf at 100hz and -4 long shelf at 10k to get the low end up to a realistic level and the highs down from ice pick fatigue zone .. with these on ..no EQ needed..... amazed at the dif ..and waaaaay more comfortable

    Great Earpads

    Great quality earpads. soft and comfortable, perfect for long monitoring sessions or casual listening. Fit snugly on my MDR-7506 headphones.

    There are some minor variances in sound when compared to leather earpads. I notice the soundscape broadens slightly, and the bass has a nice crisp sound without being too punchy, from my experience no bass response was lost.

    All in all a great product for those looking for a good pair of velour replacement pads.

    Great purchase!

    Great earpads, I got them for the Sony MDR-V6 and they are a pleasure to wear on the ears. They fit perfectly and don't irritate if you plan on having them on for a long time. If you need replacement earpads for the V6 I suggest you get these.

    Works on AT ATH-M50s!!

    I saw these were a replacement for 7506s and I had a pair of those as well, tried the stock 7506 pads on my Audio Technica ATH-M50s and they fit, took the chance. Fit perfectly. Nice upgrade from the stock M50 pads, which I didn't find very comfortable. These fit great, are comfortable, and as much as I can tell, haven't alter the sound of my phones at all.

    Solid buy if you have ATH-M50s

    Very comfortable! Fit my Sony MDR-7506 just right. Shipping was quick too!

    great for replacing pads on sony v6

    velour material is more comfortable than the original sony pleather pads. after extended use, my head is not as hot and sweaty.

    also, the pads have a larger circumference and are about 1/4 of an inch larger than the original sony earpads.

    however, the foam inside the padding is not quite as soft and squishy as the original sony pads. not a big deal for me, these are still a must have.
