To be specific, I am taking about these below. In terms of thickness, they are somewhere between the stock L-pad and SR60 cushions, but of larger diameter. The Geekria material is softer and more pliant than the Grado pads. In other words, more comfortable. https://www.amazon.com/Geekria-Replacement-Headphones-Cushion-Earpads/dp/B0155XZJ4I/ @Hands already did a lot of the heavy lifting in his Symphones V9 build review, going through 100 different pads. He zero'd in on the Geekria as being the best for this headphone, so I just went along with it. FWIW, I also agree these pads worked the best. For kicks, I also tried these pads with the Grado HF-3, and they worked quite well (more later). For now, I'd like to concentrate on the Symphones V9 build (to supplement @Hands thread). Normally, I would piggyback on the existing thread, but I wanted to bring attention on these pads as an alternative to the TTVJ pads I have been using with various Grados. For those who do not know, Symphones manufactures drivers which are compatible with the Grado footprint. It's for for people to make their own headphones. Cups, gimbals, and headphones can be obtained on the Internet. However, this is outside of the scope of our discussion. See here: https://www.symphones.com/ By the way, I wish the manufacturer assigned a name to these pads.
