Would these Ear Cushions fit on my Monoprice 8323s?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

Updated this OP with a question.

 

I have a pair of Monoprice 8323s that over over ea. The Ear Cushions are absolutely a mess and they hurt often and they get super hot. Looking online at amazon I came across these Ear Cushions that may Fit but I need Clarification first before I order

 

Beyerdynamic EDT 250 Velour Padded Earcushions for DT250, DT280, Sony MDR7506 and V6 Headphones (Pair)

http://www.amazon.com/Beyerdynamic-Velour-Earcushions-MDR7506-Headphones/dp/B0016MF7W2/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1377433282&sr=1-1&keywords=Beyerdynamic+EDT+250

 

$20.00 for the Cushions

 

Edit: I did find one review who said these fit the Monoprice 8323s perfectly. So this might be a good option for me to make these monos alot more comfy

The Monoprice 8323 DJ Style headphones are known as a good bang for the buck set of 'phones. One legit gripe is small ear holes in the faux leather cushions.

These cushions have slightly larger ear holes, yet fit the 8323s very snug.

The velour feels much nicer to the head.

Great product, when combined with $23 headphones make for what I believe the best bargain headphones one can get in the $50 price point.

YMMV, but I love them.

These headphones are great for gaming. Although the bass in them isn't crazy the mids and highs are clear and crisp. Great for FPS I play Black Ops 2 and Battlefield 3. They're also pretty comfortable to wear during long gaming sessions, the mic is retractable so you can hide it if you don't need it.

If this helps please +Rep, thanks!

im going to wait and see what others think. there are lots of options on the market such as the "Audio Technica ATH-AD500" for $60.00 I am using onboard sound for now. I cant stand these Monoprice cans anymore and im sick of seating my ears off.

Siberias are nothing special. Back then when I didn't know any better, they were my benchmark for audio quality . So honestly they're at least decent but once you acquire a real set of audiophile headphones you'll realize how much clarity/sound quality you're really losing.

For that price you probably won't find something much better anyways unless you step up to the $100 range and get Audio Technica AD700's.

As much as I liked my Steel Series headset - I gave up on them for audio products. The reason I liked it was because it was extremely comfortable and sounded better than the random garbage I used before while gaming. The reason I didn't like it was it didn't matter how well I treated them they always had an issue where an ear cup would fail - and the microphone in one case. Left ear failed completely or cut in and out this was in each headset I returned my first for the issue after about 9 months and the next failed after a year. Given you're buying used it's hard to say if that's going to be worth it for you, as much as you hate your headphones right now I think the best choice would be to save a little more and go buy something else that's suggested like the AD700s.

Audio Technica is a solid brand. I have the ATH-M50's, and they are great. People said the bass on them was subpar, but if you enable bass bosst with them, you will be just fine. I recommend the AD-700's as they are highly regarded in the gaming AT users. But honestly the Siberia's are great, and for 30 bucks, that is a steal.

i've had my Siberia v2's for 2 years and haven't had any problems with them there not. I enjoy them for long gaming sessions there very light and comfy, so are the AD700 but i don't use mine for that they are strictly used for Recording. For 60$ i say it's a decent buy, i heard storys about a bunch of people having problems with the ear cups dieing but i still haven't had any issues and they been moved around and dropped like crazy. I guess i got a lucky pair. If you want a good pair off cans that will last you a long time consider upping you're budget a bit.

Yeah, it seems to be hit or miss out of myself and three friends half of our headsets died and the other half are still going strong probably nearing a year of use. Luck of the draw I guess!

I had them before i bought my current ones, they are very good but the thing that's haunting most users is the left or right cup will eventually loose sound.
If you google this you will see it's quite common, however despite that they are a really good pair of headphones.

I've had mine over two years, I took them with me through a deployment. And my 4 year old son wears them almost daily to listen to the kindle and play cod bo2. He treats them very rough, so it probably is hit or miss.
