      While they're not my favourite cans, I have several pairs of 7506 headphones mostly used for field use where my delicate studio phones wouldn't hold up well. I've been using 7506s for 20 years now...(wow, that alone dates me)

      The 7506s hold up very well to abuse, but age always causes the ear pads on them to disintegrate and leave a mess.

      I purchased the Auray Sheepskin replacement pads on a whim when in B&H last week. Replacing my peeling pads with these took under 10 minutes. It took close to no time to remove the old ones, but putting the new ones on took a bit of time. First ear pad took me about 5 minutes of stretching and pulling on it. Second one took less than a minute.

      Don't be afraid to stretch these as I was with the first one. For the second, I started at the top of the ear, got the back of the earpad in the groove and then put my fingers inside the ear pad (behind the foam) and pulled the bottom on that way. Goes on easily then.

      So how's the performance? Amazing. Both comfort and acoustic performance are better than stock. These feel infinitely better than the stock pads, to the point that I'm wondering why I haven't done this some 20 years sooner. Once the sheepskin warms up to your body's temperature I think you'd be hard-pressed to tell me you can actually feel them.

      Acoustics *are* changed slightly by these, but for the better. Isolation is dramatically better than stock (I tried them when I still had one old ear pad & one new pad on). I find bass is more "solid" but not boomy. Treble is attenuated a bit, which is great considering how harsh these cans are on the highs.

      From now on, any new 7506 I buy will be immediately modified with these.

      For the price and based on the reviews, I had pretty high expectations for these earpads. Unfortunately my expectations were not met.

      Without question, these are more durable than the original pads on my MDR-V6, which started to fall apart after about a year. However, after many hours of listening, I'm not convinced that they're more comfortable nor do I think they feel cooler. Don't get me wrong, they're comfortable, but other than durability, I don't see much benefit to these over the stock pads. I like the feel of the original pads more.

      One of my complaints is that the pads I received are not as thick as my original pads, so the inner foam rests on my ear more. I think that makes them less comfortable after a long listening.

          I have had my Sony MDR-7506 headphones for about 3 years. After some heavy use in Thailand, sweat and heat ate away at the original ear pads. The Auray are very comfortable, fit nicely and look great.

          Take your time and stretch these into place, then twist them to fully seat the edge into the earpiece groove and align them. A good match for the shallow, original Sony pads; so don't expect a lot of sonic improvement or additional ambient isolation.

            I needed to replace the ear pads on my Sony MDR-7506 headphones - this for the second time... I use them to monitor audio levels during production. The originals and previous replacements wore out quickly, leaving flakey black plastic bits all over my head, face and ears. NOT acceptable. I am trusting that Sheepskin leather will hold up much better.

            Worth the money

            Comments about Auray Genuine Sheepskin Leather Earpads (Pair):

            The original pads flaked away within a year or two of use. As long as the leather on these pads don't flake away and stick to me then I think it will be well worth the money. The pads are thinner than the originals however the denser denseisolates sounds better in my opinion.

              I am a sound mixer and use the Sony 7506 HP. I have worn through the earpads that came with it in about 2 years and have the black bits and pieces stuck to my cheeks to prove it. These pads are much more substantial in build quality. Durability remains to be seen as I just got them but from what I see I expect much more life and comfort that before.

                I had wanted leather earpads for my MDR-V6 for quite a while (even before they started flaking apart), so I was excited to find these sheepskin replacements. I got them today and was impressed right away with their feel and look. It took a bit of effort to get them on, but they're well seated now and look like they'll stay on securely (the originals came off a few times). They feel much better on the ear than the originals, and my headphones sound just as good, if not a bit better, with them. Isolation is noticeably better. I expect these earpads will last much longer than the thin, faux-leather orignals. I'm happy.

                  Comments about Auray Genuine Sheepskin Leather Earpads (Pair):

                  I got tired of repeatedly replacing worn-out stock pads on my MDR-7506 phones. I thought the stock pads sounded fine and were perfectly comfortable, but they fell apart about once a year.

                  These pads are better in every way. The only sonic difference is that they provide a bit more isolation than the Sony pads, which extends the bass response a little (or gives that illusion). Other than that, the sound has not changed.

                  Durability seems to be top-notch (my main concern), and the comfort is actually better than the Sony pads, particularly if you use the phones in hot/sweaty environments. They're a lot easier to clean, too.

                            However, it is expensive for Canadians to buy, cost me around [$] CAD in total. These ear pads are quality and should last a long, long time. They fit snug on my Sony MDR-V7's. I bought the Velour Beyer pads and I had to send them back because one pad was way too loose. I am going to rub some Mink Oil on these ear pads to keep them healthy and soft! :)

                                    I bought these for my Sony MDR-7506's becasue I was tired of walking around with "black dandruff" on my face and neck from the old earpads. Since I wear them every day I decided to splurge a little on these. I'm glad I did. I like them better than the originals. They feel better and I think they sound slightly better as well. I have also noticed they are a bit cooler than the originals. If they last any reasonable length of time I will be buying another set of these when the time comes.

                                      The exterior rubber coating of the original earpads for my Sony MDR-V6 headphones began flaking off after about a year's use and was getting all over the place. I was hesitant that since these were not a Sony product, there would be fitting problems. They fit snugly over the whole ear cup and there is no need to fit them into the groove on the metal surrounding the ear cup. A huge improvement over the original Sony product.

                                          I am a sound designer and I use headphones in some manner every day. These ear pads provide greater isolation, and comfort then the stander factory ones. They feel great and don't show wear and tear. There is no down side for this product. If you use your headphones frequently these are a must have.

                                                Had the 7506 since early 90's, replaced the pads numerous times. Leather is real, may be not as comfortable and isolating like the softer types, but you gain in durability. They can look at my K240 without any inferiority complex.

                                                      This does several Things:
                                                      1. It actually makes the sony headphones comfortable to wear now.
                                                      2. They increase the sound quality.
                                                      3. Does not wear like the original pads.

                                                            These are great. Wish I found then sooner. Better than the originals. Better sound isolation and comfort. Not super easy to put on, but not difficult either. Just takes paticence.
