You can also just use the extension cable that came in the box.  :)  

Also the angled earpads were a custom order from Vesper Audio.  Fong carries the normal flat pads but it is easy enough to order the custom ones from Belarus. 

How much do these angled earpads go for? Now I need to look through all of my cables boxes to see if I still have that koss to stax adapter.

60-70$ or so.  Not bad for the quality you get.

I was comparing Koss to Sony ECR500 and Sony surprisingly still sounds very good. I would say not as good as Koss, but very liquid with lower end authority and good soundstage, and this is with default "sweaty" pads. This makes me think that new pads on Sony will make them sound better and make them that much more comfortable. Anyone know how if someone makes pads for ECR500? Maybe Vesper Audio can do make them? I think SR-007 style pads would work. Spritzer, did you ever swap pads on ECR500? What style worked?

I never messed with the earpads on the ECR-500 as it was really before all that started....

Now for something pretty rare... the ESP900...

This is the closed back version of the ESP950 made for medical use such as MRI's etc.  Not much is known about these and only a few sets have ever surfaced.  I'll do a more indepth post about these when I modify them and dig into them a bit.  Stock...well...they don't sound good.  The earpads are unique to these so when you press them to the head...the sound gets better but it is no 4070...that's for sure.
