OT Yamaha CM-500 ear pads

George Winship, NC5G
Has anyone found a suitable replacement ear pad. Mine are worn out. Otherwise the headset is good and hate to discard it. Did not find anything in the archives.

For the price of the headset...............order a new
one...........trash the old one.    I'd expect cost of the ear pads plus
shipping is ........... 1/2 the cost of a new headset.

Bob, K4TAX, Isis probably right.  You could try getting a set of Koss SB40 pads but it's probably not worth the trouble.

If any of these Koss options will fit, they sell them for $5 and have a
free ground shipping option.

Might try musical instrument vendors.  Good sources for foot switches, etc.

Maybe an inquiry on Amazon would turn them up.  It has "everything"! (:-))

Search on eBay.

Try a couple different words if it doesn't show the results you want.

I'll bet you'll find some Chicom stuff cheap with free shipping & no tax.
It may take a week or two to get here, but the price is right.

And before you send me an "All 'Made in China' stuff is junk" email, I have had the opposite experience.
I've bought lots of little stuff, connectors, misc parts, etc.,  that way and have yet to be disappointed in the quality.

I have both the CM-500 and the Koss SB45, I get the same reports on the air.  The Koss is $25 shipped from Amazon which to me makes it a throwaway....

Not a replacement ear pad, but if you get a new headset, you might want
to cover them with a "Garfield Headphone Softie."  These covers protect
the original ear pad and, IMHO, make the headphones more comfortable on
the ear.  I use them on my CM500 headset and my Sony MDR-7506 headphones.

Re: OT Yamaha CM-500 ear pads

Charlie T, K3ICH
Yeah, but really nice velour* replacement pads for the Sony's can be had for
not much more than the $17 they want for those covers.

Charlie k3ICH

*Sweetwater has the best Beyerdynamic velour pads.  These are much more
comfortable than the OEM,  AND they won't flake off like the originals.
I have them on several Sony MDR7506's, which by the way, have much better hi
freq response than the CM-500, but obviously do not have a boom mike.
Try the Sony's. You'll hear stuff you didn't know was there in your music
collection.  Great for all us aging types that are losing our high-end
hearing too.

I ordered Koss UR40 cushions from Koss and they were $5.00 + $0.35 Tax (S+H
FREE) to my Winter Home in Florida. Perfect fit but snug and awkward to install.
I looked how to do them on Youtube. There are several screws to loosen under the
rim of the old ones. They were mail delivered in less than a week. Much cheaper
than a new headset.

Re: OT Yamaha CM-500 ear pads

Charlie T, K3ICH
If you get a set of Beyerdynamics velour pads, you'll never go back to that
flaky vinyl surface that OEM Yamaha and Sony use.

They may even be to exact same size too , so I'd bet the Sony type will fit
the CM-500. I have both and they look identical.

They're a tad pricier at about $23  than the cheap Chicom replacements and
best price I've found on them is from Sweetwater Music.

As a side note, I bought a cheap set of pads for a couple bucks, and they
ruined the sound of the Sony's, because they were too small and didn't fit
my ears properly.
They are now in the trash. The Beyerdynamics fit perfectly and are very
comfortable.

What model number and have you actually tried them on the CM-500?

I tried a couple of the generic replacements with the CM-500 and was
never able to make them fit properly.  Still have my original CM-500
without earpads in the junk box until I find replacements that will
fit.  I'm about to order the Koss replacements, but if I could get a
higher quality version that *is known to fit*, I'd jump on them.

Re: OT Yamaha CM-500 ear pads

Jeff Griffin
News flash! If you don't complete your order at Koss and then wait a bit,
you will get an email from them offering free shipping. So I turned around
and ordered 2 set's for $10.00 with free shipping....

I was also going to order a replacement set from Koss. The $5.00 I had no
problem with, but the $12.95 to ship was a bit much. Now I'm also interested
in a set of Beyerdynamics velour pads...

What model number and have you actually tried them on the CM-500?

I tried a couple of the generic replacements with the CM-500 and was never
able to make them fit properly.  Still have my original CM-500 without
earpads in the junk box until I find replacements that will fit.  I'm about
to order the Koss replacements, but if I could get a higher quality version
that *is known to fit*, I'd jump on them.
