Garfield Headphone Softie Earpad Covers (Red, Pair)

B&H # GAHSRED Mfr # SGARHS3
You Pay: $17.05

The red Headphone Softie from Garfield is a set of soft headphone earpad covers, made of a velour-like rayon chenille fabric.

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've got the red, blue, black and gold and the VO talent is buzzing! They like the comfort, the look, though they think they would work best in cold weather. A big hit! Plus, I like that they can be washed to 'freshen' them up. Ever tried to wash headphones? Not good...
    Only negative is a bit loss in bass because the phones are sitting a little further from the ear, but for long VO sessions, there great!

    Purchased to cover headphone pads that were worn out and falling apart. The finish surface of the "pleather" was always all over my ears. They did the trick without major surgery to the earpieces but are not exactly attractive and are warmer than advertised. They did rescue a very good set of headphones from the trash heap however.

        Comments about Garfield Headphone Softie Earpad Covers (Red, Pair):

        My favorite old headphones were showing signs of wear, so I bought the Softie Earpad covers to extend the life of my headphones a bit. And I am so much more comfortable recording and editing now! Audiobooks require long hours under headphones, and my ears don't itch nor hurt at the end of a day. There is no change in the audio quality, and my headphones feel new again. The only criticism I have is that they are a little pricey for simple earpad covers, but they do work.

            The padding on my sony headphones was wearing a bit thin with the black covering wearing out. These covers fixed the problem and made wearing the headphones a dream.

              Everything I thought they would be. Was getting those black dandruff flakes from my headphones, threw these cover on and problem solved. The covers are also super soft and I think the headphones look better now than they did w/o the covers

                  Can't think of anything I would change to improve. They do exactly as advertised. Love how they allow me to wear in warmer temps, without the fragments of my aging Sony 7506 pleather (what I call plastic faux leather... like plumber) surrounds sticking to my ears. The only thing that surprised me was that the weave is slightly looser than I expected, but was glad to think that it would result in less attenuation of the sound.

                  They are a little pricey for what they are, but since I'm not aware of any other mfg'ers--and my wife's not going to knit any that fit this well--I don't really mind, now that I see that I'm not wearing them out anytime soon.

                  Bought my first pair several years ago and just ordered another for a second pair of cans.

                    I use it with my sony headphones. They are soft and very comfortable, also great when it's cold.
                    I hope they last long.

                          My ATH-M40fs phones sound great, but the surfaces of the cushions started cracking and peeling leaving black debris on my ears and in my hair. These covers have solved the problem on the ear cushions without affecting the sound. These also feel a lot better than the stock cushions.

                          Now they just need to make a companion piece that will cover the cushion on the headband as well.
