Headphone Softie is a set of soft headphone earpad covers, made of a velour-like rayon chenille fabric. The colors available are black, blue, green, gold and red.

The covers will fit most full-sized, circum-aural headphones, such as the Sony MDR-7506 and the Senal SMH-1000.

This product is designed with both practicality and comfort in mind, providing a nice cushiony feel for extended wear.

It is also resistant to temperature extremes by providing warmth in cold weather, and deflecting perspiration in hot, humid locations.

The headphone softies have no adverse effect on the frequency response or audio delivery of the headphones.

I have an old pair of headphones that I absolutely love, but the earpad vinyl started peeling off. The pads are still comfortable, but the peeling vinyl would stick to my face and get caught in my hair. I looked for replacement pads, because the headphones are still in good working order, but could not find anything that cost less than what it would cost me to replace the headphones. These earpad covers are perfect! They make the headphones even more comfortable than they were without subtracting from the sound quality! I am so happy that I found these and will probably purchase more in the near future. I believe they will help keep the earpads of other headphones I own in good shape for a long time and might even provide more comfort!

Haven't used much yet, but can tell you that if you've used the fantastic Sony MDR-7506 regularly over 6 months, you're experiencing disintegrating surrounds and this product can help reduce additional wear & tear. I'm hoping that there is a break-in period after which the fabric relaxes and allows my ears to sink into the cavities within the foam surrounds. Right now, they are taught like a trampoline and makes the earpads rest at the surface of your ear, rather than covering it and feels like they could come off easily. I haven't had in extreme temperatures, but are very comfortable. The weave of the fabric is so loose it can't effect the sound quality/freq. response. Probably a bit overpriced for what they are.

    My old Sony MDR CD360 ear pads were falling apart. By installing the Softie Earpad Covers, I have re-newed them. No down side on this product.

    Must Have

    Comments about Garfield Headphone Softie - Earpad Covers - Black:

    I've been doing sound for a couple of years, mostly satisfied with using velour cups for my cans. However my eyes were opened to a whole new world after working with some rented gear that had a set of cans with these already on.

    I had to have a pair afterwards. They will not disappoint, they feel amazing on the ears and they follow through with the warm in winter and cool in summer promise.

    Happy with purchase

    Comments about Garfield Headphone Softie - Earpad Covers - Black:

    I have V-Moda LP2 s and got these covers because I wear the headphones all day at work.
    They fit fine and are very comfortable, it's nice having a soft material against my ear all day vs the pad material in the headphones.
    I live in in an area where it gets very cold during the winter and the softies act as a nice warm ear muff.
    I can't wait to see how these work when I go skiing.
    I have not noticed any sound quality change using the softies with my LP2s.

      Comments about Garfield Headphone Softie - Earpad Covers - Black:

      I bought these to cover the flaking leather covers on my Sony MDR-RF 6000 wireless headphones. The covers easily fit over the 4" dia. 1" deep phones. I had to partially disassemble the left phone to tuck the elastic band into the assy. to keep the charging port uncovered. Buying these was a bit of a gamble, as the size is not listed in the item description. They are comfortable to wear and should last a lot longer than the leather.

          These are quite comfortable. And they hold on the crummy earpads on our set of Sony 7506 headphones that constantly fall off otherwise. Nice product!

          Comments about Garfield Headphone Softie - Earpad Covers - Black:

          The most uncomfortable thing on my amazing PSB headphones was the faux leather ear pads. Being a closed earphone they would becomequite slick with sweat after pro-longed listening.

          These covers were a great solution for me. They are easy to install, fit my earphones well and do provide the comfort and coolness of a fabric ear pad. Visually you hardly notice them.

          Very pleased and would purchase this product again.

                      I have an old set of headphones that are heavy and really uncomfortable to use for any length of time. I was reluctant to discard them since they were in excellent working order and very durable. These earpads fit the earpads perfectly, the headphones are still heavy, but at least they're more comfortable now.

                            the foam earpads have started to deteriorate.
                            these covers have made them comfortable to wear once again.
                            they do prevent the earcups from totally sealing around the ears, but other than that, a great product.

                              To start, I searched around the www. at many, many sites and could not find the real-deal headphone earpad covers. A buddy tells me to check out B&H...and there they were!, and in several colors. I chose black.
                              These thingamajiggers work wonderfully. They are very soft, stay cool when in a hot environment, and warm in a cooler environment. The big thing for me is that they keep my ears from sweating and sticking to the uncovered, bare plastic pads. They're made of a good quality corduroy/velvet type of material and strong elastic. These will last a long time and are super comfortable. I would recommend these Headphone Softie - Earpad Covers to anyone who must wear a set of headphones for an extended period. I can't think of a single thing that's not just great about them.

                                  When the rubberized surface of your head phones gets brittle (about 2 years) and you look like you have crusted blood on your ears, it's time to get these covers. The phones are still perfectly functional.

                                    Expensive but worth buying. I bought these at the same time as purchasing a pair of Sennheiser SERS170 RS 170 Digital Wireless Surround Sound Headphones with Transmitter. They are excellent, particularly in warm temperatures.
