      Comments about Beyerdynamic Padded Earcushions for DT250/DT280:

      These are slightly more difficult to install than the stock pads. (on a pair of sony v-6s) A small tool for guiding the pad into the headphone's groove will be helpful. When installing them, go slow - be patient - use all three of your hands. Install took about 5 minutes. I definately prefer this pad to the stock ones, comfort wise. They also seem to fit a bit tighter than the stock pads, so I anticipate better retention. (I have had the stock ones occasionally fall off with rough handling.)Also, the pad is fully wrapped in velvety material, The image on the site kinda looked like the foam was exposed in the middle, but it isn't.they are better than I expected for the price. I have several pairs of MDR-7506's in my studio that I will retrofit with these pads.As always I'm fully satisfied with B&H. Prompt shipping, great website with proper searching and sorting choices, frequently the lowest price too.

        Comments about Beyerdynamic Padded Earcushions for DT250/DT280:

        Eventually, the ear cushions on the Sony MDR's will begin to flake and there will be black dust everywhere. These cushions don't have the coating that flakes, and they are well cushioned so you can where them a long time: very comfortable. Bend the flap back all the way around the cushion before you put it on the earpiece. It's way easier to put the cushion on the earpiece if you do it that way.

        Superb replacement

        Comments about Beyerdynamic Padded Earcushions for DT250/DT280:

        The old earpads were disintegrating and would leave little pieces of leather on my ears after use. I picked up these replacement pads at the NYC store, and installed them myself in about 15 minutes. They fit perfectly, feel great, and the price is right. Highly recommended.

        Comments about Beyerdynamic Padded Earcushions for DT250/DT280:

        Stop buying original MDR 7506 or MDR V6 original earpads! They rip, tear and fall apart too easily, way too early. Instead, replace your earpads with much higher quality Beyer-Dynamic manufacturer part number 942704 .

        These earpads are much more comfortable, are much
        more heavy duty around the edges where they rip
        from hitting the desk, and make the MDR 7506 or MDR V6 sound more rich and full, but not a drastic change!!

        These are soft, black velour...
        You'll be AMAZED !!

        I have attached images here to visually help with installation.

        Best to use a small plastic or wooden tool to help install.

        Here are images of what the earpads look like compared to these Beyer Dynamic earpads.

              I ordered these cushions as a replacement for the disintegrating ones on my Sony MDR-V6. It took about five minutes of very careful work to replace both sides, working very carefully not to damage the drivers. They do fit perfectly when they're done. Definitely thicker than the OEM version, but they are comfortable. No serious difference in sound, but they do run a bit warmer than the old ones, and I do perspire a bit under them. I'm glad I did it; time will tell on how long they last.

                  Original Denon AH-D950 ear cushions (late 1990's?) were dying a slow death bit by bit. Foam rot plus end of ear pieces from glasses poking/tearing into them.The Beyerdynamic DT250/DT280 from BH fit perfectly and included the piece to fit over the driver.FMMV but these encapsulated my ears better and deadened outside noisy plus were much much more comfortable. Inital comfort and a hour later were still comfortable without the original hot/damp ear issue as well.As the headphones were in "perfect" condition aside from the ear cushions they now are better than new.

                              I'm using it on my Ultrasone DJ1/HFI580 and it's the best upgrade I've ever done on a headphone. The original pleather pads made my ears sweat so much. These, not so much and it really retains the headphone's original sound characteristics.

                              Best. ear. pads. EVER.

                                I bought these to replace my aging ear pads for my Sony MDR-V6 that I had bought in the mid 90's.This will give me more incentive/motivation to use them. I can't say that these changed the sound because I hadn't listened to them for a long time because of the old pads deteriorating.They do feel comfortable and should last longer than the stock ear pads. They are a little pricey although they came down in price a few dollars within two weeks time. They are the one of the best replacement pads, unless you want leather. Other than the recent price drop, and the limited time I've used them they are better than the stock pads.

                                  These soft velour pads are the perfect mod for Sony MDR-V6 and 7506 headphones, especially since the stock pleather pads are so flimsy and shallow! With the Beyerdynamic cushions, no more incomfort even after 10 hours wearing sessions. They even deepen the pads, making more room for the ears and a little bit of extra bass resonance! They may be expensive, especially after shipping, taxes and custom fees (I'm from Canada), but I don't regret this purchase in the slightest. This is an awesome product!

                                    When the headphone pads that came stock on my beloved Sony MDR-V6 Monitoring Headphones began to flake off, leaving little bits of black leather on my face after each use, I took to the internet to search for replacement earpads. I came across several people mentioning these Beyerdynamic DT250 Replacement Earpads, so I decided to check out the reviews. Didn't take long to see that they were highly praised for being made of a nicer material than the stock standard Sony MDR-V6 earpads. Another common thumbs up was for how these made the music sound a bit better because they provide a little more "space" between the listener's ears and the headphone's speaker. So, I gave them a whirl..

                                    WIN!

                                    They feel AMAZING, are SUPER comfortable and they actually make the headphones "breathe" more, which is really opening up the music and making it very pleasant to listen to for long periods of time. I am THRILLED with these and will definitely replace them without any hesitation should something happen to this pair!!! So happy with this purchase.

                                        I bought these to use with Audio-Technica ATH-M50 as other reviewers have stated they have done. These are a big upgrade from the coverings that come on the Audio-Technica ATH-M50...much more comfortable. Very difficult to get on the Audio-Technica ATH-M50, but once they're on, you will be thrilled! Does not affect sound at all.

                                        These new ear pads brought new life to my old V6s! They're a little more expensive than I would've liked, but what isn't these days?! But in this case you truly do get what you pay for. A little clunky to install, but if you warm up the ear pads first, either with a blow dryer or out in the sun, you'll be able to pull the ear pad's edges over the body of the headphones easier. With the new Beyerdynamic ear pads, the headphones are MORE comfortable than when they were new with the original 'pleather' ear pads. They sound just as great, if even a little better. You won't regret getting these ear pads over any others, even if they are a little more than you wanted to spend. No buyer's remorse here!

                                            I've been searching for weeks for these earpads. They're out of stock everywhere. Placed an order here and received an email once they became available. Immediately placed an order and B&H sent these out to me asap. These replaced my old earpads from my Sennheisser 280 Pro's. They are so soft on my ears and I can wear these all day. Love them. Thanks B&H!

                                              I got the Beyerdynamics pads from B&H today and it took me about 2 minutes to install both of them on to the Sony MDR-7506's,just make sure to remove the plastic inserts on the pad housing that comes with it.As for performance,I notice more bass and the clarity is pin point with the highs.Really like the plush cloth pads and very comfortable.My inside ears doesn't get sweaty anymore now :) ....I'll be using this Sony for along long time now.......thanks B&H and all the reviews on this posts..........Highly recommended for others use without regrets .
