Excerpt: These headphones are fantastic. I am a DJ, so I love the swiveling ear cup, but I also do home recording, and boy do these sound pure! If I crank my low, these cans handle the bass like you've got subs strapped to your head. Really nice sounding from deep bass to the high. The mids and highs are very clean.The sound quality is like NOTHING else I've heard. The adjustable head piece rests on the top and back of your head for complete stability. TOP HEADPHONES!!
Pros: Consistent, Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Professional Features, Versatile
Fitting Instructions Would Have Helped!! A Eureka Moment was Necessary :-)

Summary: Bought these on the recommendation of several reviews for the HD-25s, at the same time as ordering my HD-25s. Removing the original leatherette earpads took about 5 seconds - working out how to fit the replacements took about half an hour! Once I'd sussed it, it's about 30 seconds to fit these on the earpiece: First, remove the originals - just slide your little finger inside the earpiece, under the earpad, and simply pull the earpad off.
Summary: if i didn't know better and i don't.... these here are a genuine sennheiser spare part. sound improvement from my torn up and leaky original pads is huge... these are more comfortable out of the box than pleather ones. these pads are velour(as advertised) and are not to be mistaken for those suede ones that come with sennheiser amperior.
Summary: I've had a pair of HD25's for around 10 years and bought these to replace the rather worn out earpads on them. Installation was easy and these are much more comfortable than the 'synthetic leather' ones which originally came with the headphones - they're actually bearable for long periods of use now.
Summary: Having used and abused my HD25's for years, it was time for some new ear pads, was going to get some non gen's in velour, but thought I’d buy these at the price they were on sale for, glad I did, my headphones now look and feel brand new again, comfortable to wear for long periods too. Tricky and frustrating to fit, I turned mine inside out to fit, just be careful about tearing the material.
