Affordable earpads for your Audio Technica ATH M20X, M30X, M40X or M50X

I’m a newb in regards to being an audiophile. I just acquired my very first DAC (Digital to Analog Converter) for my Audio Technica M20X. I got Micca Origen G2 for the DAC. They are considered entry level headphones. But I really like to test the waters before I start spending hundreds of dollars on equipment.

I’ve had my Audio Technica M20X for half a year now and wear them daily at work to listen to music. I’ve always felt they were not that comfortable. Often using my cheap Sony headphones because of their comfort. Browsing online and in videos, I heard switching earpads might improve comfort & sound signature. I figured I’d give it a try. But many of the Brainwavz and other brands cost. Steep investment for someone who is fairly new.

Searching through Amazon, I found a pair of velour earpads that fit similar Audio Technica headphones. Since the earpads for the M20X, M30X, M40X & M50X are all the same, I figured I’d order them and give them a try. They arrived quickly and I figured out how to remove and replace my earpads. Fairly easy to do the swap after a quick Google search.

Bam. I am impressed. I wear glasses. And these new cheap velour earpads are amazing! The padding is so much nicer around the head/ear. Since I wear my headphones at least 3-4 hours a day during work, comfort is a big deal.
