Garfield Headphone Softie Earpad Covers (Gold, Pair)

B&H # GAHSGLD Mfr # SGARHS5

The gold 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 bought these for my Sony studio headphones. The shiny coating on the ear pieces was starting to flake off and I was looking for something to negate the flaking and make my cans look good again. My friend, who has a video production company, recommended these to me. First of all, the material is very quality and very comfortable on my ears. I went with the green and they look fantastic! It doesn't impede the audio at all and I can wear these for hours when editing without discomfort.

    I got these to cover over the deteriorated original earpads of my Sony MDR-7506 headphones. I do lots of transcription so my headphones get heavy use.
    PROS: The material is a soft, pleasant texture; the covers are easy to put on and fit the headphones perfectly; they can't deteriorate like the original plastic-covered fabric does.
    CONS: Because the covers flatten out the concave shape of the earpads underneath, they make the headphones press much harder against the ears and so they become very uncomfortable if I wear them very long.

        These are a great alternative to continually replacing flakey ear pads. Which happens too often in the Texas heat.
        Easily installed on my Sony headset. And an added bonus that they come in subtle colors since I mark all my lighting/grip gear in green to make it easy to spot while out in the field on jobs with other freelancers.

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

          I bought these together with the Sony 7506 Headphone but not for the first time, no this is my second pair of each. I was so impressed by the Headphones and the good Quality of the Garfield Covers, that I thought I better buy a second for spare. They don't muffle the Original Sound from the Headphones and they are really comfy. I guess they will work with a variety of Headphones, but I recommend the Sony. I use them for Boompole Situation, direct Sound from Camera and in Post Production and Studio Sessions.

              Comments about 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.

                    I'm using these on some Senal SMH-1000's. I got them because after about an hour wearing the headphones my ears would get sore; these really do the trick. I wore them for over 3 hours last night with no ear discomfort, the fabric is soft, doesn't disrupt sound, and wraps very securely on the muffs. Aside from all that, feels great when my phones are around my neck and it's winter now, so if I wear em outside they double as ear-muffs. :) highly recommended.

                      These earpad covers fit like a glove - solving the issue of the foam pad flaking and tearing that occurs with some sony headphones. The multiple colors are also great! *Note that although these are called 'gold' they are not shiny and closer to a mustard brown or dull gold. Great color regardless.

                            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 was a little skeptical about these pad covers for my Grodos. But after about 3 weeks of use, I find them to be VERY comfortable.

                                I'm thinking about getting a few more of these for my other headphones. I recommend it.

                                  I bought these because I wanted somthing besides leather on my headphones, to my amazement they also kept my ears from sweating even when the outside temperature was well into the 90s, later on in the seasons they kept my ears nice and toasty :) these really are amazing for anyone who wears headphones for extended periods of time! I will buy these for any and all of my cans in the future!

                                    After fitting them over the earpads, they are just what was called for to cover the flaking from my current, well-used headphones/earpads. Headphones allow me to hear TV/radio programs without increasing the volume for others in room.

                                          I bought these for my Sony studio headphones. The shiny coating on the ear pieces was starting to flake off and I was looking for something to negate the flaking and make my cans look good again. My friend, who has a video production company, recommended these to me. First of all, the material is very quality and very comfortable on my ears. I went with the green and they look fantastic! It doesn't impede the audio at all and I can wear these for hours when editing without discomfort.

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

                                              I absolutely love these things. The biggest thing about these is that they make the headphones more comfortable for the one wearing them. Also, when it's cold they keep your ears worm and at the same time when it's hot they keep your ears cool. Also, I feel is another great benefit is that they protect the materiel on the headphones and I feel will help the headphones themselves last much longer. Great product.
