I got these mostly for the comfort. Pleather gets sweaty but it isolates better, so these pleather earpads with velour surfaces are easily the best combination. The holes on the interior seem to help it breathe better as well as make them more soft for a better fit. The only concern I have is that these are itchy after extended use. I'll have to see if there are tricks to work around this.
They are thicker so they do squeeze a bit more on the head, but it certainly doesn't feel like it. All the pressure points are gone. Heck, I can wear these with my glasses on and I don't end up with notches in my skull like with most headphones.
First of all, these are made to angle the drivers backward. I didn't realize the M50x headphones already had angled drivers, so the angle may be redundant. I will be getting a normal pair for comparison.
My main concern when I first bought the M50x headphones was that the bass was too boomy and tended to overwhelm the vocals and especially foley. Reviews by RTINGS confirmed this. For a good set of headphones, the bass should have smooth presence, but should not take over by any means, which is where most brands like "beats" are legendary for failing.
These earpads do add more distance from the driver, which had me worried about sound. But what I didn't expect was the bass to smooth out and the rest of the spectrum to really come out in a more open, hi-fi sound. I would say it helped flatten the response, which is why I got these headphones in the first place. The acoustic properties may or may not have been intentional, but after going back to the stock pads then back to these, I must say I can't go back to stock. Both for comfort and for sound.
The only thing I found that I didn't like about these are that they hurt a bit after about an hour. But I think that's just me and my giant head. The thick pads that came with the headphones did the same thing. But the standard size ones did not. I didn't subtract any stars for this.
A lot of reviews point out that it ruins the sound of m50's, and a lot say they didn't notice the difference. I should have listened because the difference is very clear if you have an ear for audio quality at all. I don't know why you'd even buy studio monitors if you didn't. The sound gets very tinny and harsh, and you lose a lot of base.
If you want these to sound like the stock pads, you want the newer prostocks.
I just got these and as advertised they are much much closer to the stock sound. They are on ear instead of over ear, but I find them very comfortable still, and my gf thought they were more comfortable than these pads. On ear is what you want anyway, since that is what the headphones are designed for.
