One pair of velour replacement earpads for the HiFiMan Headphone series.
These pads are for use with HiFiMan HE-300, HiFiMan HE-400, HiFiMan HE-5LE, HiFiMan HE-500, and HiFiMan HE-6 headphones.
I bought these pads to replace the stock ones from my Superlux HD-330 and 668B. They fit perfectly after you remover the plastic disc that is not needed for the Superlux'es and make them both pair of headphones very comfortable, especially the HD-330, which have very tight clamp.

I bought these to put on my HD 668B's (Cheers Z Reviews) as I heard they were a very nice upgrade and much better then the stock pads you get. These did take a while to arrive, about 5 - 7 days. When I got them, I realized that these where not the same as the ones that I saw online. They are still velour and are the right size, however they are missing the leather part on the bottom that you are supposed to stretch over the headphones so that they stay in place. After a bit of tinkering and a bit of glue, I got them to stick to my HD 668B's. They are very comfy and are much better than the stock pads. The have also made a difference to the sound so I am happy on the performance of these. In conclusion, these are not the correct pads but they are pretty good. For £8, It's not that big of a deal but it would of been nice if they were not advertised with the leather part. 3 Stars.
These are the stock earpads for the 400s. Feels cheap and not durable. Also low end (bass) is hardly present with them. Upgrade to focus pads or HM5 pads is essential in my opinion. Both for build quality and sound quality. Bass is basically missing with these weak stock versions. In my opinion earpads were one of the compromises made by HiFiMan to be able to prodeuce the cheapest planar on the market. (And I had to wait 2 MONTHS for my order to arrive. Ridiculous.)
