The Sony MDR7506 (USA) and CDR900ST (Asia) are the longest standing standards in studio monitoring headphones for more than 30 years. In the late 2000’s, Audio Technica changed the game releasing the original ATH-M50, and subsequently the ATH-M50X. The M50’s served not only the professional studio world, but also crossed over to the consumer mass market taking it by storm. One of the best bangs for the buck in headphones, the sound is excellent, but the pads leave some room for improvement. Dekoni tasked itself to improve both the sound and comfort of the M50’s and the 7506. This was the first premium pad group ever released by Dekoni Audio (7506/M50x), and it was our first major success.
Co-Founder Tal, was a live sound engineer on tour with national acts for more than 10 years. Looking online he could only find cheap replacements for his worn out pads, which were uncomfortable and made of cheap pleather. He tasked himself to create something even he could wear on tour, for long sessions at back of house or in the studio. From this idea, Dekoni Audio was born.
These pads fit the Audio Technica ATHM50, ATHM40, ATHM30, ATHM20, ATHM70, as well as the X versions of those headphones. They also fit the Sony MDRV-7506, CDR900ST and Sony V6, and many other similar headphones.
Dekoni Platinum Protein Leather series is the original Dekoni premium Ear Pad line. Released in 2016, this is part of Dekoni’s legacy. Using ultra slow rebound memory foam, Dekoni’s quality and comfort is unmatched in the audiophile and working musician world. This high quality vegetarian synthetic leather is soft to the touch and more comfortable than most stock pads and offers improved isolation. This allows you to listen longer without ear fatigue.
