The Most Advanced Headphone Cushions On The Planet!

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

Lawton Audio was the first to develop an aftermarket custom-made headphone pad, and we continue to lead the way with the latest edition of our innovative, comfortable and great sounding Angle Pads. Our top-selling product, see why Hifiman owners rave about them!

The design of the stock pads that come with the Hifiman 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 headphone pad 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 thinner Hifiman factory pads place the powerful driver quite close to the ear and allow a lot of energy transfer. This provides the music insufficient room to breathe, collapsing the soundstage, and causing fatigue over long listening sessions. Positioning the driver at just the right distance can reduce these unpleasant spiky sound waves, enabling you to relax and forget you’re wearing headphones.

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 encourage 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.

Our Angle Pads are deeper than the stock Fostex cushions, with a wide opening, producing a big, full and “out-of-head” sound. It’s like the concert you are listening to has been moved to a larger venue.

Maximum Comfort and Luxury for Hours of Musical Magic

The workmanship on our pads is impressive, incorporating the highest grade genuine lambskin leather for a truly deluxe feel and maximum durability. 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!  

We even sought out a superior mesh fabric material to protect the drivers while also allowing more air (and music) to flow to your ears, for less veiling or masking of sound.

Easy to Install!

Just slip the stock pads off their plastic rings, slide our Pads on, re-attach to your headphones and you’re ready to go. (If you also want a new pair of the plastic mounting rings, just Contact Us and we’ll link you to a source for them.)

BEWARE OF PROTEIN LEATHER! Our Pads Are Genuine Sheepskin.

Recently, you’ve probably been seeing many cheaper replacement pads on the market that have been knocked-off from our original angled concept, claiming to be made of something called “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 powder from organic egg shells 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. Yes, it costs more but you get what you pay for, plus our Pads last much longer than the cheaper options you will have to keep replacing every year.
