On NewEgg. Link


I posted this in the 9500's previous thread. I can't find info anywhere. Maybe you headphone gurus know?.......

The ones on Amazon are listed as SHP9500/00.

I wonder if there's a difference between the two model numbers?

That 3rd party Nutrend is trying to pay people $5 to remove their negative review. Not the best company to buy for when they're doing that. My guess is that it's either going to be a hit or a miss. I don't like dealing with 3rd party companies on NewEgg.

That's actually who I bought these from on Newegg before. No issues, otherwise I wouldn't have posted this.

Why did he use a screwdriver? You can just yank it off and keep them intact and use 3D printed extender rings to put on 3rd party pads without ruining the originals.

Apple, I rememer seeing 'Z Reviews' on YouTube talk about that mod. However, I think humungo pads like that would mess with the soundstage too much? Idk I was thinking about getting those Shure alcantara earpads. These cans are already super comfortable and those pads seem like a worthy step up.
