Very happy with my purchase, cushions are exactly as described and hold up well so far (2 weeks). Work great with my headphones and are very comfortable! Installing them was very easy with the instructions video.
Replacing the uncomfortable, worn out ear cushions of my expensive headphones for $26 bucks is an incredible way to preserve value and reduce waste (both tech and $$).
Really happy with this purchase!
The stock earpads were very worn and put pressure but I have no such problems with these cushions!
Firm but very comfortable cushions. As far as I can tell they're at least on par with the ones from Sony when new. The extra thickness is nice, especially when you have big ears like I do. At the very least, they're much better than the originals are after several years of daily use. Installation was clearly explained and easy to do, and the cushions snap in place just as well as the originals. The quality of the sound and ANC also seems to be at worst the same as before, if not better.
I think my XM3s are a different version/edition. The installation clips and pins were upside down on my pair, that is, the clip and pin that are close together are at the bottom (rather than the top like in the instructions). I think the cushions are not 100 % symmetrical, and because of the above issue, they feel a bit different from the originals. They are okay and do the job, but they are not as comfortable as the original cushions.
These is a relatively easy replacement. I suggest not using a table knife as suggested and maybe use something less sharp just to be careful and not scratch the plastic. Other than that these feel way mushier and more consistent that the wore down original pads. Hope they hold up.
They look and feel almost EXACTLY like the stock ones. I had broken clip on one and they wanted me to pay for shipping back a broken item. I had to dispute with my CC to get the charge revered for a proper refund. I'm just sticking with the stock ones until they fall apart, then I'll prob just got to Amazon and find another brand.
Fits perfectly and shipped quickly. They are a bit stiffer than the stock XM3 ear pads but they seem to be breaking in nicely.
So far these ear pads are working fine. Instructions were clear and fairly simple. Comfortable and matches the original Sony shape exactly. (note Sony does not make the best quality ear pads!) When these wear out I will order another pair from these guys.
Better than the stock originals!
I’ve had my XM3 headphones for a few years now, and they’re great, except that the surface of the ear pads started to wear down, and the material underneath irritated my skin. I finally got fed up with hanging them around my neck, or pulling some cloth over the pad.
I didn’t think there was going to be an easy solution to replacing or properly covering them, and was half expecting to end up buying a new pair. These turned out to be really easy to snap in, though, and should hopefully get at least a few more years of use out of those headphones.
Saving hundreds of dollars and reducing waste seems like a win across the board.
This is my first time purchasing this kind of product but was pleasently surprised when it fit way better then expected! In particular, as someone who wears glasses, I can use these for several hours without my ears starting to sore.
J'ai retrouvé un casque avec un confort et un son de qualité (j'avais auparavant essayer des pads de Chine d'une qualité très moyenne), ici c'est le jour et la nuit vraiment parfait je recommande ces pads car la réduction de bruit est parfaitement restitué, sa vaut le coup
Easy to install and much more comfortable than the stock earpads.
Sounds and feels great. Keeps my ears cool
Cushions are okay, certainly not better than the original. Shipping takes too long. O
Cushions are okay, nothing special. Equal to manf, not better. Shipping takes forever.
Better than the original cushions. Very responsive and customer oriented. Will buy from them again. Thanks...Tom
These are great. The installation was super easy. These are more comfortable than the stock ones. Easy recommendation for anyone wanting a little more comfort.
I never received it .
After waiting for over a month and a half for the delivery, the order never arrived. When I emailed WC, they “claimed” the Item was must have been “lost” by the shipping company. This method of not shipping paid for items until noticed by customer, is the greatest scam if all time
WCs are a marked improvement over Sony's OEM cushions (which are surprisingly good). WC improves comfort and sound isolation. It's too early for me to critique quality but they do feel solid like they'll hold up longer than Sony's cushions.
They are alright. I bought ones from amazon as well and they are basically the same so nothing special. It seems like wicked cushions did indeed decrease the quality and bought these from another supplier because the review units looked totally different.
Quick delivery from California to NZ and in a pandemic, that was impressive by its self but simple instructions to replace and I have my noise cancellation and brilliant sound of my Sony headphones back, ps., they are really comfortable.
Absolutely fantastic! I never liked the stock earpads on the Sony WH-1000XM3's. They are too thin and I can feel the headphones touching my ears. Replaced them with Wicked Cushions and they feel amazing. Even better than my Bose QC35's which are extremely comfortable. Worth it!
The ear pads fit very well and easy to install as well. However, the linings started to split after about 6 months of daily usage. It is quite disappointing to experience that as I thought it will last longer.
Noise Cancelling takes a big hit when using these to the point where I've reverted back to using my old damaged original pads because the difference is night and day, for a company that specialises in ear pads I really expected better. 2/5 because the build quality seems to be good, it's just a shame that they don't work very well with the XM3s, would recommend people avoid purchasing these.
I ordered the regular black version, but got a kind E-mail that they had not gotten their own order for that color. They asked kindly if I wanted to wait or upgrade to the camouflage version with no extra cost.
I took the deal and I'm very happy with my choice. They look good and feel a lot better than the original from Sony.
Very good quality! extremely good costumer support!
Love the way the new cushions fit and how easy it was to remove and replace the cushions. Great product and support.
I recieved my earpads about 2 weeks ago. First I want to say, the customer support is amazing. My package was lost somewhere at a postal service depot, but WC kept track of the package and already offered me a refund or a new pair. This company is awesome. But about the earpads: They fit really really well and it's definitely an upgrade. However I'm affraid I will have to switch back the originals. The Active Noise Cancelling is very bad with these pads. Because the pads create more space between your headphone and your head, more sound comes through. Since I mainly bought this headphone because of the superb ANC it looks like I'll have to replace the WC Cushions. I'm very sad that I will have to do this because man, these things fit so much better.
I purchased these for the Sony XM3’s for my lunch break run/walks. They did not have enough padding to begin with. The xm4 did improve there. These things were all about flat so anything was going to be better! Well holy tap dancing bears! Not only do they feel better, improve the sound quality enormously, but have revived these to the point in questioning the xm4’s. Do not even think twice. Unless QC falls off.... these are a win! Sony... talk to wicked!

Starting with the package, it screams quality and thought. Not to mention, the pouch can be reused for something else, so there goes practicality. Getting to the cushions themselves, they have a higher quality than the original ones. My only wish is that there would be a model that would look better on the headphones I own, but still this looks awesome as is.
Love this, my original Sony earpads were completely flat after a year of daily use, these earpads made my XM3s feel like new, the top of my head doesn't hurt anymore thanks to the pressure these earpads give me on the ears. Way more comfortable and I wear these headphones like 10+ hours everyday.
Also, excellent customer service. My first pair one of the earpads arrived torn on one side, talked to customer service by email and they instantly sent a replacement for free.
10/10 would buy again.
Better than the originals! And thicker
Great pads, exactly as advertised!
If you need earcup replacements, you won't be dissapointed with these. There are well-built, and I actually prefer the way they look to the original ones.
If your original earcups are in good condition, I don't think these are a significant enough upgrade to warrent a purchase.
A little expensive but very good, much better quality than the originals.
I have large ears, and finding headphones that feel comfortable is always a struggle. I loved the sound quality and ANC on these headphones, but the earcups were too small.
These earcups absolutely fixed that. They're SUPER comfortable even for long listening sessions. Can't recommend these enough!
The pads for great and were easy to install. I was a little concerned at first and thought they were too stiff but as the foam warmed up from wearing them they became very comfortable. I can't tell any difference in noise cancelling, which is a good thing. I sometimes wear these headphones for 6-8 hours a day and do far these pads have been very comfortable.
Haven’t put the ear pads on the headphones yet but they look nice!
I know it was a small purchase but definitely the best purchase I've made this year! The ear pads are so much thicker and more comfortable than the ones sony uses. In my experience, using the Wicked Cushions makes the inner par of the pad sit farther away from my ears causing less irritation which was a gigantic plus to me! Anyone that spent the considerable amount of money for the truly great sony wh-1000xm3 headphones should definitely consider replacing their ear pads with Wicked Cushions!
they're ok. way better than stock in terms of comfort.

It is a perfekt replacement, tok 2 min to install. Only one week shipping to norway.
Bought this pair to exchange the smaller cushions on my XM2 with the size of XM3.
Unfortunatelly the frame for XM3 is thicker, slightly different and just not useable on XM2.
The construction of the foam parts is different, too.
I had to cut out 2 small holes to fit the cushions on XM2 and do some cut work on the original foam parts, as the new set comes with fabric glued on cushions and not on the foam parts.
Compared to originals XM2 cushions are these a little bit harder, but still fine.
Would buy this XM3 cushions again, as XM2 cushions are just too small.
An excellent, high quality product.
Pads fit nicely, good quality. Original pads seem to be slightly softer, giving a slightly better seal for sounds from outside. Perhaps in time the new pads will fit even better, after breaking them in. Anyway, fresh pads, no more stink! Yay!
There's a lot of misinformation floating around the web on the Wicked Cushions for the XM3 headset. Just to set things straight: From an appearance standpoint, they look at least as good and well finished as the pads that come with the XM3. They are just a tad stiffer than the originals. For those of us with large ears, the ear openings in the pads are virtually identical to those in the originals. The uncompressed distance between the surface of the Wicked pads and the black cloth inner piece was about 2-3 mm deeper than the original pads. That plus the stiffness of the Wicked pad would give ears that stick out just a bit more room to breath. But - are these pads really an upgrade to the originals? Early testing here shows that the Wicked pads produced less perspiration during long wear periods. Both pads are made of some sort of vinyl or PVC(?), but the Wicked pads seem to breath a bit better than the originals. They are certainly worthy replacements for the originals, but pads made of genuine soft leather (that would be skin from REAL animals) would have been far better. But, these pads get the job done properly and are priced right.
Can't beat the quality and price. Excellent

I bought these cushions for an unusual reason I think. I own a pair of ultimate ears Custom Molded in ear monitors. When I am on an airplane, I like to wear a pair of noise canceling headphones Over the in-ear monitors To block out the white noise of the engines. Unfortunately, the headphones press in on the monitors, Which is uncomfortable. The wicked cushions Add Just enough Extra padding To prevent This.
My OEM Sony XM3 cushions were like new, but the idea of an upgrade is irresistible for an audiophile. So glad I did! The one knock on the XM3 is that the ear cups can get warm, but with the new Wicked Cushions I no longer feel any warmth. The WC are slightly thicker and firmer, but that made all the difference in the overall comfort with no impact to the sound. I no longer have to pull the cans away from my ear to allow cool air in. Well worth the price!
