For some time now I kept finding little pieces of rubbery black stuff on my floor and body. Initially, I thought it may be from my chair as it is aging. However, I wrapped it up in a cover and didn’t see any openings. Then by chance I picked up my Arctis 1 headset and looked closely at the earpads. I realized that they were the ones flacking and it was time to change them. I thought about new headphones, but these have served me fairly well and there really is no need, so I just replaced the ear cushions.
So I purchased these earpad replacements because someone on amazon said that they were better than other ones that appear for this search. He posted pictures of how quickly his other new ones fell apart and encouraged us to try these out.
So I will say that despite the name “freeze,” these cushions do generate heat when on your face. I don’t play very long these days, but I haven’t noticed much sweat when on my ears. I did have the earpads on my face once so that I could hear out of one side of my head, and that’s when I noticed the sweat. I think they are large and comfy, spaced out just right in a way that distributes the weight and creates no painful pressure points.
Switching the pads was fairly straightforward and easy. It’s too soon to tell, but at $30 or so, I hope they have some longevity. They really ain’t that cheap for what they are. But that’s why I decided to give these a go, wicked cushions appear to be good stuff. We’ll see in a few months.
