    Like all earphones, the ear cushions are the first part to show wear and tear and like all German designed equipment, the earphones are made to last via replaceable parts - Ear Cushions, wires and even up-grades to a full headset with a mic.

    With most other earphone manufacturers, if anything gets broken or worn out, like the ear cushions, one would just have to buy a new complete new set of headphones. Not so with Sennheiser Electronic equipment.

    The only draw back is the method of Earphone Cushion replacement (which could be improved upon) and the description of exactly how to replace the Cushions in the manual.

    Otherwise, for just a few dollars, I have an new set of headphones.

    Is it just me or does the material look and feel cheaper?

    My old ones were nice and leathery, but these feel completely different and I don't remember it feeling like this when I bought it originally. The cushioning also seems thinner. Are they really the same or were my old ones simply greasy and worn?

    Comments about Sennheiser H-85733 - Ear Cushions for HD280 Pro/HD280 Silver:

    You know...I just can't recall the texture of these pads being like this when I originally got the cans. They've served me so well that replacing the pads wasn't an option, but I'm really hoping they break in and this isn't an issue of cheaper materials on Sennheiser's part. In short, the new pads feel cheap and stiff. Time will tell if they hold up like the old ones did.

      These foams are a bit of a challenge to install, but they fit perfectly and are VERY comfortable. Expect at least 3-4 years of good life - that's how long the originals lasted.

        Comments about Sennheiser H-85733 - Ear Cushions for HD280 Pro/HD280 Silver:

        These are my working location audio phones, they work no matter what, The stay on my head and sound very steady and reliable, they sound close enough to a set of monitors for fieldwork, The new ear covers work like the old ones only better, they're tighter and isolate better than the stock units. They're pretty comfortable but not too comfortable which is good for what I use these for, running after actors and interviews.
        They can be somewhat painful after a few hours so, I take them off when I don't need them on. They work perfectly!

              I bought a pair of 280s almost 10 years ago, and though they've always sounded great, the pads started flaking off and disintegrating a year or so ago. While putting on these pads takes a few minutes, it's far cheaper than buying a new pair of headphones, and sennheiser's youtube channel has a video guide that shows you exactly what to do.

                  Owning a solid pair of reference headphones is key, and spending the money for a good pair means not only better fidelity, but also the ability to replace parts as they wear.

                  The ear cushions on my 3-year-old Sennheiser HD280 Pro's had started to come apart after some serious usage.

                  It took me just a quick search to find B&H (a local shop) online, order, and have delivered (the next day!) replacement cushions.

                  As with anything well made and durable, it helps to have a bit of instruction on how best to fit replacement parts - Luckily, Sennheiser posted this
                  http://youtu.be/SXqL7Q-tW6Y YouTube video on exactly how to do it. It was as easy as it looked in the video (which is to say — a little tricky) and knowing that I can replace these cushions at any time has made me feel even better about my purchase.

                    Buying these replacements for my HD280 silvers allowed me to keep my headphone since they don't make them anymore. I use these headphones every day, and I've worn out the padding on them several times over the years. I'm glad that all the parts on them are modular so I don't have to keep buying new headphones.

                      Comments about Sennheiser H-85733 - Ear Cushions for HD280 Pro/HD280 Silver:

                      Not only is it convenient to have replaceable ear cushions for the HD280 Pro headphones, it is necessary, because they seem to go bad more easily than other headphones. The cushions tend to tear at a sewn seam every time. I have had a pair of hd280s since mid-2008 and I have replaced both cushions thus far. But I love the headphones, so that's life.

                      Sennheiser has an informative online video to show how to replace the ear cushions. Might be difficult without the video, but the video makes it a breeze.

                          Comments about Sennheiser H-85733 - Ear Cushions for HD280 Pro/HD280 Silver:

                          I ordered a pair of HD280 Pro cushions to replace cushions that were disintegrating on my headset. B&H shipped very quickly and I was happy with their service. The pads themselves are slightly different then the originals, but I have no complaints. I am more frustrated with Sennheiser's shoddy replacement guide videos.

                          Just pinch and pull to remove the headphones, seems easy enough right? Well not in my experience, I essentially had to surgically remove them from the headset. Further, installing the new pads is another exercise in frustration. Trying to guide in a VERY tight rubber like plastic around the earphones is a test of anyone's patience.

                          All in all I think it is better to spend ~$25 to keep a pair of headphones you like going, than buying an outright new pair. That said the installation is no where near as easy as Sennheiser's support would lead you to believe.

                            It took a bit of work to get the new ear cushions on the headphones. But once on they are much better than the worn out originals. These feel a little more plasticky than the originals but the originals were shredded and digging into my ears.

                                  Saved me from buying new headphones, but feels like I did. Only downside is the are a little bit of a pain to stretch over the bases.

                                      Took a little doing to get 'em on, but they make the 'phones just like new.

                                            Not exactly identical to the ones that came with my cans, the "leatherette" material is different. Otherwise its a straight up replacement. It can be a little difficult to put on.

                                            These were a little hard to get on at first, but after watching the youtube video from Sennheiser, I was able to get them onto the headphones. Now the headphones are just as good as they were new.

                                            I'd recommend these to anyone that has the seams of the ear cushions coming apart, like my stock ones did eventually.

                                            The earpads on my several year old black HD280 started to tear and I got these to replace. I was slightly worried the description says they're for the "silver" headphones, but there's no silver on the earpads.

                                            The pads themselves feel firmer, and cover material has a lighter, more matte finish. It's probably just because my previous ones were so old.

                                            If you know how to do it, they're easy to remove and replace -- the first time, though, you'll probably need some help. I'd recommend checking youtube for a tutorial.

                                            Also, thumbs-up to B&H for having a great price for these.

                                            I've had this pair of Sennheisers for probably 7 years or more, and they were in pretty rough shape, although still surprisingly good considering the amount of use I've had from them.

                                            The ear cushions were basically trashed and there was no way I was going to get rid of these headphones, so I decided that a replacement was in order. Although they are a bit costly for quite a small amount of material, working out to basically a fifth of the cost of an entire new pair of headphones, they are worth it.

                                            I only wish that these(or any) headphones were designed with detachable/washable cushions.
