Alright, I screwed up...need replacement pads for my PC350.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So...this happened awhile ago, and I just kind of let it go...anyways. I had some cream around my neck for some stuff, and it got on my ear pads. I forgot about it til I put them on. Gently tried to wipe it off...got stuck in the padding itself.

So I decided to...soak it in hot water...then violently wash the pads in an effort to get it out. Needless to say, this didn't result in good things...also, for some reason the headset makes me really itchy and uncomfortable, despite fitting nicely, I don't know why. Maybe the pads, or so?

I mean it's a quality headset, HD595 drivers, nice mic, solid build. Anyways, after my recent awesome customer support from Logitech, I decided hey, maybe I can contact Sennheiser and get some replacement pads...free! I mean Logitech shipped me a whole new mouse at the drop of a email...

My Warranty just ran out...like literally less than a month ago, so I figure why bother the nice people. So I googled replacement pads...hrm. I was wondering if people knew where to get some? I hear HD595 pads might fit, but got no definite answer on that.

Also, the PC350 uses Vinyl for the headpads...is that maybe the source of my discomfort, perhaps the Velour of the 595's would better suit me? I'd like some answers from experts. Thank you.

Can we keep prices realistic, too, please?

I mean I'm seeing prices of up to 40-50$ for replacement 350 pads...I am NOT willing to pay that, as that's absolutely absurd!

The pads on mine fell apart after a while so I got some velour ones from eBay, they fit fine but they really alter the sound of the headphones. I guess they are designed to be closed and you lose a lot of bass. Not that they sounded that bad or any worse, just different, I still used them for over a year and they work fine.

I can't find the ones I bought any more since it was so long ago, but if you look around you can probably find them quite cheap. I noticed there are some non-genuine fake leather style ones on eBay at the moment for $25, they might be a good replacement to the original although I can't say how good they are without having used them (they do look like they might last longer than the original leatherette ones though).
