Best Headphone Earpads in 2020



Wicked Cushions Premium Bose Headphones Replacement Ear Pads - Memory Foam Pads Adapt to Your Ears - Fits QuietComfort 15 / QC15 / QC2 / Ae2 / Ae2i / Ae2w / SoundTrue & SoundLink (Over-Ear) | Black Review:


I first attempted to buy exact replacement ear cushions from Bose for my QC15s. The were out of stock (again), and they said that they sell out as soon as they get new cushions shipped to them. I decided to try one of the off-brands, and with their good reviews, these looked like the ones to try. I also decided that the Bose cushions were likely over priced, so I thought that it was worth the chance.

I received the order quickly, and I inspected the contents. These cushions are exact replacements for the Bose, with possibly better foam than my older, blown-out cushions. You cannot tell the difference. Most third-party parts have some notable differences from the OEM parts, but these look like they come off of the same manufacturing line as my original ones.

Then came the installation. I watched the short YouTube video, and the installation went smoothly and without flaw. It literally takes about 5 minutes to watch the video, take off the old cushions, clean the headsets (I blew out the dust with a canned air spray), and install the new foam screen mats and ear cushions. It really is as easy as they say.

If you are questioning whether an off-brand product is as good as the Bose cushions, as I did, do not hesitate to buy these replacements. They meet every expectation that I had, and I am a very particular person about such things.

UPDATE: Although I posted this review only a few hours ago, I need to add to it. I am completely satisfied by these replacement cushion. They are indistinguishable from the OEM cushions in appearance, and the performance is as perfect as I can imagine. I will definitely use these replacement cushions again, when this pair wears out.

Premium Beats Studio Replacement Ear Pads by Wicked Cushions - Noise Isolation Adaptive Memory Foam | Upgraded Strong Adhesive with Easy Installation - Compatible with Studio 2 & 3 / Wired/Wireless Review:


A great product at a great price. As a bodybuilder, I am in the gym a lot. When I am, I am wearing these Beats Studio Wireless Over-Ear Headphone - Matte Black (OLD MODEL). Obviously with a lot of use, and predominantly a lot of SWEAT, those stock ear pads deteriorated real quick. In looking to replace the ear pads, I found these. I removed my old ear pads (easy to do), cleaned up the residue of the prior adhesive (a little more challenging, especially when that residue had been stuck on for so long - takes some work, trying to get it all off, yet do so somewhat delicately so you don't Hulk squash the headphones), and then lined up the new ear pads for installation. There are some great YouTube vids, by these guys from Wicked Cushions themselves, that explain in detail what to do. In any case, the new ones went on easily, I left them overnight spread open on some books (i.e., grabbed about 4 or 5 books, stood them up and then spread these out so each cup rested on the end of each book) so the adhesive would take, and BOOM!...headphones that are good as new. They look sharp (this pattern especially looks good with the matte black), feel even better than the originals, and saved me the cost of buying a new set of headphones. Thanks Wicked Cushions! A great product.



AhaStyle AirPods Ear Hooks Earbuds Covers Silicone [Sound Quality Enhancement] Compatible with Apple AirPods 2 and 1 or EarPods[2 Pairs- Large & Small](Clear) Review:


Bought these because of ear pain from airpods. Showed decent results. So let me start by stating that the ear pain I have are due to the design/shape of the actualy airpods. They unfortunately are too big for my ear and upon trying to work with them for weeks, I never got used to them and after 15-20 min I would have an ear pain that was unbearable. Keep in mind I typically use the size S/M gummy earphone caps on different types of in-ear earphones. So when I saw these I knew these would be a game changer. Or so I thought. I am currently using the Small ear covers on my airpods and they do improve the bass tremendously and cancel outside noises very well. However they didn’t exactly fix the issue I was having before which was the ear pain as mch as I’d like, but they do some. Key word Some!!! My ear pain reduced from a 9 to about a bearable 3/4. I can wear my airpods for about an hour and a half before I feel the discomfort again but thats because of the actual size from the air pods themselves. I took away one star because The boxes come with only 2 sizes instead of the usual 3 like in other gummy type of earphone caps. So I only have 1 pair I can really use (s)and I have 1 pair I cant at all use (L) rather than having 2 pairs I could’ve used (s) (M) and one pair I had to discard (L). All in all I would buy again IF they sell them by individual sizes or have all 3 sizes included.



Replacement Ear Pads Earpads for Bose QuietComfort QC 2 15 25 35 Ear Cushion for QC2 QC15 QC25 QC35 SoundLink SoundTrue Around-Ear II AE2 (Black) Review:


They work well with Bose QuietComfort 35 (Series I) Wireless Headphones, Noise Cancelling - Black to replace the original ear pads. The original Bose ear pads on my headphones started to rip open slowly after a year of steady use. Such sadness. I looked into the Bose warranty but found it wasn't gonna do much for torn ear pads, but if I wanted to try submitting a claim I'd have to send my precious headphones (I still used them all the time with the ripped ear pads with foam spewing out... they are that good) for an uncertain period of time. No thanks, so I gave these replacement pads a try and I'm glad I did.

One of the ear pads didn't fit perfectly into it's ring shaped holster on the headphones but nonetheless it still attached like 95% of the way, and it hasn't come apart or caused any trouble after a few weeks of steady usage. Overall, installation is a little annoying but not impossible by any means. Nice minimal packaging. Would recommend. Cheers and happy listening :)



8pcs Black Replacement Eartips Earbuds Eargels for Beats by dr dre Powerbeats 2 Wireless Stereo Earphones Review:


The product came quickly in the mail. Only one set fits which is what I bought it for. They easily come off when I put them in my pocket or bag and I have to keep putting them back on. To be fair this might be the case for all brands, but they do work.



Headphone Ear Pads Replacement Cushion For Bose QC25 Quiet Comfort 25,QC2、QC15,QC25、AE2、AE2I Earpad Review:


Not sure how well these will hold up, but I am impressed so far. I have owned 2 pairs of Bose headphones, and with each pair the ear pads deteriorated (flaked off) after about 2 years. The first pair I traded my headphones back in and got a new pair for $99. This time I figured I would just replace the ear pads. Well Bose was going to be close to $30, so I figured I'd try these. I cannot tell a difference between these and the pads I had on the Bose (before they flaked off). My Bose headphones are QuietComfort 15, and the pads fit just fine and they are soft. Anyway, we will see. I don't use them as much as I used to (when I traveled by air a lot), so I'm sure they will hold up a long time. Oh and if you do travel by air a lot, get a pair of noise cancelling headphones and save your ears and enjoy your flight a lot more. I recommend these, and if your not happy with them, send them back.



EarBuddyz 2.0 Ear Hooks and Covers Accessories Compatible with Apple AirPods 1 & AirPods 2 or EarPods Headphones/ Earphones/ Earbuds (3 Pairs) (Clear) Review:


These. Are. The. BEST.

Let me start out this review by saying that I have strange, misshapen alien ears. They may look normal, but I MUST have something going on that other people don't have, because I have never been able to understand how everyone is able to get earbuds to stay in their ears. My life has been one session after another of buying earbuds, putting them in, and them immediately slipping out. Some of them can make it as long as a few minutes, but even a smile will push them right out of town.

It's annoying. I have never been able to enjoy wearing anything but enormous over the ear headphones. Which, while great for sound, are not that great when you're sweaty and at the gym.

The kind of all confusing earbuds for me so far have been the Apple ones. I don't have Airpods, I just have the corded ones that come with the purchase of a phone and/or iPad. These things are slippery all over, and somehow seem to stay in people's ears like a magical sticky geckos. For me? No way. I put them "in" (I hesitate to say in, I should probably say "on" considering they just sort of rest there with no other means of gripping), and as soon as they were placed, they just dropped to the floor. As useless as balancing a spoon on my nose and then trying to run while keeping it in place.

Enter EarBuddyz 2.0

I stumbled across these while sitting alone at my desk, drinking wine and googling "why don't earbuds stay in my ears?" for the 1000th time in my life. There was, of course, no answer to be found. But I did come across a list of recommended "fixes" for myself and other people with alien ear affliction. A link to EarBuddyz was on that list, and I decided to give it a shot, fully expecting them to be yet another failed mockery of my strange deformed cartilage layout.

They arrived and were easy to maneuver onto the Apple earpods. And I flicked them up into my ears.

OH SWEET MERCIFUL GODS.

THEY.

STAYED.

IN.

I finally know what it's like to be one of crowd. I can now blend in with the normals and no one knows about my alien ear mutation, because I now also have magical sticky ear geckos of my own.

I can run in them, I can sweat with them. I have accidentally pulled on the cord while running and they have STAYED PUT like the glorious little amphibious soldiers that they are.

If you are one of my fellow sufferers, I sure hope these work for you as well as they have worked for me. I have two pair and couldn't be happier with them. If anything ever happens to them, I completely plan on buying more. If I could give them ten stars, I would.



AhaStyle 4 Pairs Earbuds Cover Anti-Slip Ear Tips Silicone Compatible with Apple AirPods 2 & 1 or EarPods-【Not Fit in The Charging Case】 (2 Pair Large & 2 Pairs Small, White) Review:


 While these don't magically make your AirPods sound like Bose quality headphones, they do improve the overall sound experience quite a bit.
--Noise canceling: They do a pretty good job of blocking out noise, but it really depends on how well they fit your ears
--Hold in place: This was an issue for my ears with the AirPods, but with these, they fit snug and aren't going anywhere
--Improve sound: Because they stay in your ear canal better and the silicone keeps the sound directed into your ear, you do get better sound, but the overall quality of sound is not very improved.

These covers are super easy to put on and take off your AirPods. And you get three sets (all the same size) so you don't have to be so worried about losing one. They are right/left specific so they line up with the holes in your AirPods. I use the little case they give you to stash my AirPods when they have the covers on since they don't fit in your charging case with the covers on.



[6 Pairs] Earphone Tips New Bee 12pcs Premium Replacement Earbud Tips Blocking Out Ambient Noise Memory Foam Earbuds Inner 4.9mm for in-Ear Headphones with 5mm-7mm Tips (Black, S/M/L) Review:


Got these for a pair of iems. Quality of the sound isolation is wonderful so long as you find the correct size tip for your ears. Most foam like ear tips I've owned in the past start tearing only a month after use, these are going strong and look as vibrably red as the day I put them on.

I wear these to sleep almost every night and there is zero fatigue or soreness. SUPER COMFORTABLE!

Compared to the stock, flimsy ear tips, the isolation improves the quality of the sound by helping you hear aspects of the songs composition y likely hadn't heard because of noise bleeding into your ears with th regular tips.
