    They come with a nice set of Grado adapters. Zach said to put the adapters on the Grados first then put on the earpads.

    Would love to hear these! Would be testing on the various 580 & 650 I have. I’ll see if I can borrow my buddys grado when these come my way as well

    I already have the adapters, but I'm interested in the pads and will use them on a Grado-like headphone. (And Senns too!)

    FWIW, these adapters are very thick/dense foam that does create a nearly complete acoustic seal, so non-perforated earpads pretty much sound like poo (way too much upper bass) when used on a headphone that normally uses exposed foam pads. I'm sure a tube outlet style solution could help with solid pads, something to try. Maybe I'll punch some tiny holes in my set of adapter rings...

    If not too late, would love to give these a try with my HD 600.

    EDIT: Also have any impressions gone up yet? I am excited to hear what people are finding here.
