Question 2: What happens as the cushion on the ear pads age?


Replacing the cushion pads on your headphones should be done regularly (recommended every 6 months), like changing the oil in your car. Not only does changing the pads have hygienic merit, but it also helps to preserve the original sound intended by the designer. Even if the pads are clean, they become compressed as they age, and this alters the effective acoustic space a great deal. It is like having the same speaker set up but in a different room; you know the sound will be different.
