The Most Advanced Headphone Cushions On The Planet!

Headphone fans know: pads matter! Different pads on the same headphone sound different!

Lawton Audio continues to lead the way with the latest edition of our innovative, comfortable and great sounding Angle Pads. Our top-selling product, see why Fostex owners rave about them!

The design of the stock pads that come with the Fostex phones is typical of the majority of factory pads provided with your favorite headphone; which is to say, largely an afterthought if considered at all. At Lawton Audio we have done more than anyone else to carefully re-imagine the humble cushion and to treat it seriously as a crucial component of your headphone and the way it sounds.

Re-Position the Drivers for Optimal Sound & Music

The squishy and thin Fostex factory pads place the powerful driver quite close to the ear and can sound “shouty”. The music has insufficient room to breathe, collapsing the soundstage, and causing fatigue. Placing the driver at just the right distance from the ear gently reduces harsh spikes while maintaining the vibrant and focused sound these phones are known for. Our Angle Pads are deeper than the stock Fostex cushions, with a wide opening, producing a big, full and open sound.  

Angle the Drivers for More Coherent Soundstage & Bigger Images

Placing the driver at the correct angle to the ear also has surprising benefits. This specially chosen degree of taper between front and back is the secret of our pads that puts the Angle in their name!

This angle slightly tilts the drivers in a way that really helps the brain to blend the separate stereo images and close the gap in the middle we commonly experience with headphones. Now the sound appears to emanate from in front of the listener in a more natural way, as it might at a concert or when listening to a pair of speakers in a room.

Supreme Comfort and Luxury for Hours of Musical Magic

The workmanship on our pads is impressive, incorporating the highest grade super-soft genuine lambskin leather for a truly deluxe feel. The internal foam is specially selected to provide maximum comfort with just enough firmness to maintain its crucial shape. We also have more room for bigger ears! Ahhhhhhhhhh!  

Maximum Durability For Long Life

If you are reading this, you’ve likely already discovered that the factory pads just don’t last. Our Angle Pads are substantially better made with much higher quality materials that will greatly outlive the flimsy stock pads.

Easy to Install!

The best part is how easy it is to quickly install a pair of Angle Pads on your phones at home.

BEWARE OF IMITATIONS! There Are No Substitutes For Our Angle Pads.

Don’t settle for knock-offs! Lawton Audio introduced the first custom-made upgrade headphone pad back in 2010, which we have continuously improved to this day. A few imitators have appeared recently with huge lines of replacement pads for multiple headphone brands including Fostex. In some cases, they have even brazenly tried to copy our original angled design, in an attempt to convince you that what they offer is somehow a substitute for our superior Pads.

Don’t be fooled! Our Angle Pads for Fostex are not just another SKU for us on a wall of headphone pads. We are the only brand strictly dedicated to upgrading Fostex headphones, we have years of experience with them, and have earned a great reputation for our Pads. We actually listen to the sonic results as we tinker with our Pads on all the Fostex models, and have tweaked them to perfection over to give you the best sound, comfort and durability possible. Our Pads are also made by hand in the USA with top quality materials and construction.

They have tried and failed to replicate us because they aren’t concerned with sound quality in the first place. Always remember, when you buy an authentic Lawton product, you are purchasing a true UPGRADE, and not a mere replacement. We are the Fostex experts, ask the people that know, our Pads are the best.

BEWARE OF PROTEIN LEATHER! Our Pads Are Genuine Sheepskin.

Why did your stock Fostex pads wear out so fast? Simple: they are made from protein leather. “Protein leather” is not real animal hide or actual leather, but can mean different things. Some materials called “protein leather” consist of the scraps and waste from the processing of leather hides that has been chopped up and artificially melded together using a chemical resin stew. It can also refer to a petroleum-based (i.e. plastic) material commonly known as “pleather” that has been manufactured with some amount of organic powder thrown into the mix. Neither are as durable as real leather and will flake and degrade much faster. Our Angle Pads are genuine sheepskin, the most premium leather available, extra soft, flexible and durable, sourced from the USA. That means our Pads last much longer than the cheaper options you will have to keep replacing every year.
