actually they are still the same 414 pads for Senn cans, dyed black
bought this fabric dye from a tailor, cost : $2.50 per tin, its a power form, mix with hot water, the instructions also says add salt, not sure what the salt is for but i add it anyway
let the pads soak for about 5 mins, making sure that every part has being dyed, squeeze out the access and leave them to dry for about 20 mins. then rinse off with clean water. now the pads are black
before and after
new black pads with the original "donuts"
i decided to leave the centre of this new pair of 414 pads uncut, i prefer the way they sounded without the center hole, the previous pair that i had with the cut-out sounded too bright for me they were sold off
one last shot, i think the Grados look best from this angle
