Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Audio

Audio:
"The original ear pads that came with my audio tech m50s were horrible."
_
"Unfortunately, Audio Technica doesn't make velour ear pads, so I read forum after forum about other brands that would fit ATH-M50s."
_
"Iv'e tried so many earmuffs and I have to say the Shure HPAEC840 are THE BEST earmuffs for the audio technica ath-m50x."
_
"They are a great improvement to my Audio Technica M50 headphones as far as comfort goes."
_
"I use them on the Audio Technica M50s, and they fit beautifully."
_
"No impact on audio what so ever, bass is perfect, mids, highs all good."
_
"I have heard no change in the quality of the audio, and the extra ear room is nice for someone like myself with larger ears."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"I'm aware that it's unfair to remove 1 star from the product because I'm using it for something not recommended, but, for my purpose, I'm giving it a 4 out of 5.I will say these are WAY more comfortable than the pleather and wish I would have done this swap years ago."
_
"My ATH-m30x's went from unbearable to very comfortable after attaching these cups."
_
"While I'm giving this product 4 stars because they are quite comfortable, I'm extremely frustrated at Shure for not just including these with the headphones."
_
"They are comfortable and cut down any ventilation problems the stock ones have."
_
"Comparing to the standard earpads for the ATH-M50, the comfort went from unbearable pain in 30m to limitless bliss!"
_
"When I first got them I thought the comfort was okay, not great, but passable."
_
"So not only are these more comfortable but they also do not irritate your ears."
_
"They fit very well and are comfortable, most importantly, no more plastic leather garbage in your ears."
_
"The sound quality is still amazing and now I can have the comfort of extremely high quality padding on my head at all times."
_
"My ears are much more comfortable and I'm able to listen for longer periods before experiencing fatigue."
_
"Thank you for reading this and I hope you find that amazing comfort these awesome sounding headphones, and you, deserve!"

Cushion

Cushion:
"My only complaint for these doesn't really have any thing do with the quality of these cushions but for anyone that wants these for their ATX M50's, there is a slight decrease in the quality of the music."
_
"Bought the HPAEC840's for my Audio-Technica ATH-M50x, the stock ear cushions were very painful and gave me an instant headache from the pressure on my ears."
_
"Purchased these for my ATH-M50LEs because those ear cushions were never all that comfortable to begin with and only getting worsewhile these don't fit as snug as the originals (they shift around a bit somewhat easily), they're far more comfortable."
_
"Not as comfortable as the Shure SRH840 cushions, but then again, it does what is intended for the price point."
_
"Used these to replace the horrible ear cushions of the ATH-150s and they worked perfectly."
_
"In the end, if your ATH-M50s have uncomfortable cushions, buy replacement cushions that are made specifically for the ATH-M50s, and use them more often."
_
"When I switched back to the original cushions it was punchy and sounded great."
_
"It takes a little concentration to get them on, but that's a good thing; the Fostex cushions were too lose and were forever falling off."
_
"Love these as a replacement for the original cushions on my Fostex T20RPs."
_
"These HPAEC840 ear cushions work great for my AudioTechnica ATH-M50."
_
"great upgrade for the 440 stock cushions."

Fit

Fit:
"Purchased these for my ATH-M50LEs because those ear cushions were never all that comfortable to begin with and only getting worsewhile these don't fit as snug as the originals (they shift around a bit somewhat easily), they're far more comfortable."
_
"The shape isn't perfect (the originals are circles rather than ovals) but they fit pretty snug around the lip."
_
"The only downside I found is that the these do not fit the ATH-M50s perfectly, but I won't take a star off for that as these are not advertised to work with them."
_
"They do not fit 100% perfect, I'd say they are about 101% too big, but they do work."
_
"I was a little hesitant seeing some people complain about the fit on these bad boys on the ATH M50s but they fit great."
_
"Unfortunately and naturally, the fit on the headphones isn't 100%."
_
"They fit very snug but are a good fit."
_
"The pads fit nicely and quality is good."
_
"They do fit your ears nicer, as they are bigger (makes the headphones feel more like my Sennheiser HD 380 Pro's)."
_
"The fit is perfect and the feel is wonderful."

Listening

Listening:
"(hard to measure though...) I wear glasses and my original cups, due to the stiffer and or thicker foam, would press the arms to my head and cause discomfort for long listening sessions."
_
"Sound quality wise, it's hard to say without listening back to back."
_
"Literally wear them all day when I am at home... even if I'm not listening to anything (yes, so comfortable that I prefer the minor noise blocking from surroundings computer from wearing them even with no sound, than not wearing anything)."
_
"They can get pretty hot though after about half an hour of listening, but they are definitely much much better than stock."
_
"Makes listening to music enjoyable for extended periods of time."
_
"I can completely overlook all of these shortcoming, as these pads have given me the most comfortable listening experience I've had."
_
"The OVER THE EARS cushions are much more comfortable for listening by headphones."

Sound

Sound:

"It is very comfortable but sound isolation is acceptable when compair to stock."
