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.

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.

Bob, et al,
I installed the Koss UR40 pads on the CM-500 headset. I can't remember which
video but the Yamaha and Koss are the same size pads.

Mike,

Which video?  Are you installing the new UR40 pads on a CM500 or on a
KOSS?

I ordered Koss UR40 cushions from Koss and they were $5.00 + $0.35
Tax (S+H

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.
