Comfortable, stays cool, and the materials used feel premium! Overall? You get the value out of these, they make an already comfortable headset even more, especially since they're thicker than the originals and the Anc nub doesn't rub against your ears anymore
Much better then stock pads. Bigger and more comfortable.
After purchasing these Earpads my daily sessions have improve significantly and I highly recommend these if you do long online sessions.
Came very fast and is very good quality.
The default earcup of nova pro wireless is really uncomfortable . I got ears insfection , about to return it but i am glad that i found wickedcushion . Best investment so far
Super comfortable. Super easy to install
Quality is good. I’m losing some quality of noise cancelling over the stock ear pads. Gel is nice at first but after a short time, they don’t feel any cooler than the stock pads. Love the separation from the center piece that bothered my ear after a while of wearing. Overall good product but would love to keep all of my noise cancelling quality as well as better cooling for the gel. Would purchase again. Thanks for the product!
Absolutely love my wicked cushions! They're especially perfect if you have the wireless arctis nova pros.
Comfortable and easy to install
The earpads are awesome color is great and my ear is not touching this nub inside the headset anymore! Shipping to Switzerland was pretty fast too! Will order again! Thank you
It’s really made with high quality materials and is stitched which makes it more durable than your standard hot glued ear pads. Highly recommended this product, wish you guys ship to Japan through your website.
Worth all your money, even shipping it all the way to the Netherlands!
The difference is amazing. Definitely worth the purchase!!
I like them they are comfortable. Wish there were more design options available for my gaming headset. Thanks.
Perfect fit for the novas!
Cheap feeling and looking. Tacky.
Never had Cooling Gel in my Cusions. It feels amazing. Especially on longer game sessions.
It shipped fast and fits perfectly no problems.
I could only wear the headset for like 1 hour, then my ears started to hurt. Now with these cushions I can wear my headset all day long.
I wouldn't say they are perfect, but are close :) They would be perfect if there was like 5 mm extra space inside.
Solved the issues I was having with the ANC speakers touching my ears and getting uncomfortable. They're wide enough to give the clearance needed to solve the issue, but not so wide it looks silly.
They're also more comfortable than stock, and provide a better seal on your head for a better noise cancelling experience.
Really pleased with my order. Worth every penny.
No more of that ANC bud grinding on my ear. Pads are nice and roomy inside. Wish I didn't need to get these but worth it to keep the ANC bud from hurting me.
Just wish it could be more glasses friendly, definitely better than the stock ear pads that come with the headset otherwise it still relieves a bit of pressure, still great
Fit perfectly and are very comfortable, totally recommended.
100% worth it!
I do like them, they are comfortable, easy to install, look awesome, however they are not cooling like the description states, maybe I got a bad set, but none the less they are nice
So much better than the stock earpads on the Nova Pro Wireless. The stock ones become pretty painful after an hour or so, so I bought these. They stay comfortable even during longer sessions and are much less sweaty than the old ones as well. Plus, 90's style? Where else you gonna get that? Highly Recommend!
Easy installation. Well beyond my expectations regarding quality. I would consider these a must have for people who wear glasses!
Easy to install and the material is nice
Fast delivery, easy install, amazing feel. So much better than the default cushions.
Had heard great things about these headphones, but was super nervous that my big ears would still somehow press up against the ANC nub or fall out of the bottom of the pads. They fit perfectly and even my 1" plugs sit nicely inside the cups and don't hang out the bottom. I can't even feel the ANC nub at all. 10/10, freezing gel pads are such a nice touch too.
Arctis Nova Pro Wireless Earpads - WC FreeZe Cooling Gel are trash. Comfort is an improvement. But sound quality is shit. I don't know what happened with these. But I've literally pressed them against my head as hard as possible to create a solid seal. But the sound leaks out and makes my expensive headset sound trash. The default earpads that come with the Arctic Nova Pros do an amazing job of sealing the sound. Even after going back to stock pads, I can hear a HUGE difference. Stock makes my headset sound amazing. While these custom pads make it sound like a $30 headset from some knockoff chinese company.
I've heard alot about these earcups so u decided to take the plunge and while they feel great there's no cooling sensation whatsoever.
Honestly. The only thing good about these earpads are the slight upgrade in comfort. They're bigger and are slightly more comfy. But really, the mesh they went with on the outside means these pads are going to hot as hell after 30 minutes. They leak way too much sound. The Nova Pros border between audiophile headphones and gaming headphones. But listening to music with these supposedly "superior pads" made my sound horrible. I lost all my bass and honestly sounded like I downgraded my headphones. They are so big and awkward that they slide around on your head. It's almost like they made the headset not grip anymore. I tried so many different settings as far as length of the headset, the headband itself and so on. It always slid around on my head cause of the garbage sports material they went with. They should have just upgraded the stock earpads and kept the leather padding. The reason stock is straight leather is to lock in sound. Your design leaks so much sound and makes your headset sound like shit.
Love the cushions, the ear cup is larger for people like me with bigger heads and ears.
The cooling is a nice touch, but wish it would stay cooler for a long period of time for hours of gaming, but can say that they don't retain heat and are comfortable to wear for hours. I wear them for about 8-12 hours a day.
Definitely a must have for the nova pro wireless
Easy installation, and comfy on the head. A lot better then the original. I have the SS Arctis Nova Pro headsett
As someone with small ears and glasses these are a godsend! I've previously owned a different pair of Arctis headphones, but had to return them cause they were pressing on both my ears and giving me slight bruises, and they would press my glasses in, making them uncomfortable if not downright painful.
When I got the Arctis Nova Pro I was afraid that it was gonna be an issue again and turned out it was. I couldn't wear the headphones for much more than an our before it started getting painful. The knob for the noise canceling was also quite annoying most of the time with it touching my ear.
I got the earpad replacement with the cooling gel as they were the biggest ones available and will definitely be getting another pair when these have gone through wear and tear. Pretty much all the issues I've had disappeared the moment I replaced the standard issue earpads with these.
If you have small ears and wear glasses then I can not recommend these enough
Every thing is perfect to my knowlage, but the cooling gel in my old Razer headset was providing more cooling than these.
worth it dont even think about it
These work pretty well. They aren’t as cool (physically) as other cool gel ear cushions. Turtle Beach’s 700s come with an actually incredibly comfortable cool feeling set by default. However these are a wonderful alternative to the ear baking soft nylon included with the Arctis Nova Pros. Even though these still get pretty warm after hours of use I would instantly suggest these over the defaults. Hands down an upgrade.
Sound quality is very bad with freez cushion for nova pro wireless…
Je suis très contente de mon achat. Le casque est plus agréable à utiliser, il n'y a plus la sensation de chaleur que j'avais avec les originaux. Et mes oreilles ne touchent plus le fond du casque.
Poor service waiting on label before chargeback
Originally bought the Arctis Nova Pro's because of all the great reviews and were a great choice for a long term wireless headset. My only issue was the ANC nub on the inside that would push against the top of my ears and after time caused some discomfort. Which is weird this wasn't noticed in product testing as these are $380 wireless headphones....
However Wicked Cushions had just the ear muffs I needed to fix that problem as well as having cooling gel which at first I didn't think I would notice or care about but I definitely do like that the ear pads are nice and cool when I first put them on and they stay that way for about an hour. Very nice touch. They also have great customer support and feedback. I got a text message from the owner of the company (Amzaleg) who thanked me for my order, and said if I need anything he's a text away. Can't really beat that!
I also didn't have any issues taking off the original ear pads using their step by step video. Getting the Wicked Cushions on was a bit of a struggle but once I got one side to snap in the other side snapped in easily. Overall a great replacement ear pad that fixed my one issue and should last for years to come. Thanks Wicked Cushions!
These replacement cushions improve on the comfort and use of the Steelseries Arctis Nova Pro Wireless headset so much. I love these cushions. That dumb ANC mic is not even remotely noticeable now. The emails and included video links were helpful and I have to say that when I realized how the installation vdeos were telling you to go about it.... I felt completely dumb, lol. I thought he was pressing up and not down into the hooks. It was a simple enough process in the end. With the stock cushions the headset shipped with my ears after a few hours would get hot and sweaty, it wasn't intolerable to the point of taking them off but it was very uncomfortable. With the Wicked cushions my ears don't get that way at all any more. If you're on the fence about getting them just do yourself a solid and go ahead and get them. you will not regret it.
These cuffs honestly saved the arctics nova pros for me.
Super easy to install with a how to video guide provided by wicked cuffs. I definitely recommend these to anyone bothered by the default cushions.
Super comfortable, definitely recommend
The ear pads fit great and are very comfortable to wear. Better than the original
The quality exceeded my expectations, and the in-ear driver no longer touches or causes pain to my ears after extended use. Wicked Cushions has made a great product, and defeated the in-ear driver issues completely.
Cooling gel works well, but will ofcourse warm up while wearing it. The inside of the earcup could have been a little bigger as my ear does not fit. Have regular sized ears.
Really nice and comfortable, the cooling gel is a nice extrta and I can't wait to use it in summer
Exactly what I needed to resolve the comfort issue I had with my Steelseries headset which I was so excited to receive but was close to sending back until I googled a solution: Wicked Cushions (Are wicked!)
Keep the ears cool. Very soft surface. Good for sweaty game sessions.
I no longer suffer from aching ears and headache. I am professional remote IT supporter, so I now can wear it for 8+hrs without any problems. Without the new cushions I max. used it 2hrs and had to change setup to deskmic and speakers and had to stay at my desk. Now I can stroll through my flat, when my customers follow my orders, how to work with their software. :-) Or I can sit on my veranda and drink a coffee, when I'm in a Teams Meeting (w/o cam) :-D
Top notch quality. Cushions are 100x better than OEM. Cooling gel works great for me because I always run hot. Customer service from beginning to end has a nice personal touch. Wicked Cushions for all my headsets from this point forward!
My god I can finally wear this thing wothout dying of pain. Ghanks wicked cushions I'm sooo happy with it
Very happy to have alternatives to the OEM pads for my Arctis Nova Pro Wireless!
Great quality, Confort, and it even sounds better with these pads. At least that's my experience. Great product and it is recommended.
These things fixed everything that was wrong with the Arctis Nova Pro! This is a well worth it purchase if you're not digging the comfort on those small stock pads.
For sure a little more comfortable than original, also noticed after playing for a couple hour's i felt alot of pressure on my head. So I take off to rest and release pressure I felt.
If you wear glasses and hate the OEM earpads because it scrubs against your glasses, or it's too warm, you will likely love this cooler ones.
Extremely comfortable. Really impressed with how much nicer they are than the stock pads.
Massive improvement over the original Artis nova ,they where some itchy and hot.
UK delivery was around 10 days , no issues would order again
These not only fix the ANC mic-pain issue but also actually make the headset amazing. When I first bought the nova the features were magical but comfort and sound were meh. Coming from the Sennheiser HD660s I'd say the sound was 3/10. Ultra harsh highs, barely listenable vocals, overpowered bass... was considering returning them.
Then the WCs came in the mail. Wow. The comfort is excellent, the cooling gel is oh-so-cooling, the sound has mellowed out. The highs don't hurt, the bass doesn't flood everything out but remains punchy and most importantly - I can enjoy vocals again.
For extreme positional audio - go for the non-cooling ones. For all else, these are insane and I love them
Oh, and they look cool
Feels way better with the new cushions. I absolutely hated the little thing in the ear cup pressing on the ear, and this helped.
The cooling pads are great. I'm using them on my work headset and they get me through my 11h shifts
Ordering was super easy. Delivered in a good time frame and customer experience was great. Super easy to install with the supplied videos and updates along the way. Super comfy and fix the problems I had with the original nova cushions.
These are so comfortable and feel amazing. Best purchase!
Solved every issue I had with the stock cushions. Definitely worth the purchase!
Easy Installation. Feels amazing. Already told all my friends to buy immediately.
The Earpads are wonderfull! With the original pads, sweat was rolling onto my neck, with these, nog problems anymore. Also the service of Wicked Cushions is very good. I live in Europe and even then they answered my questions and helped me ship them to my door.
I can't recommend them enough if you want different earpads for your Arctis Nova Pro Wireless.
work well, cooling gel is nice
I couldn't be happier with the quality of these ear cushions! The owner even contacted me personally to check-in and ensure I was happy with the product, and to reach out to him if I had any questions or concerns. The shipping was fast and I highly recommend if you're looking for an upgrade to your existing ear cushions. These are far better than the standard leatherette ones that come on the Arctis Nova Pro and reduce heat tremendously for long work or gaming sessions. They also help with keeping your ear further away from the inside of the earcup reducing strain (at least for me and my ears). Don't hesitate, buy this if you want an upgrade!
Cushions are very well made. The Gel definitely helps dissipate heat from your ears which helps a lot with long work or game sessions. Highly recommend. Would buy again.
Easy to install, comfortable to wear
Super comfortable. Gave me the extra space my ears needed, works great.
I love them! They are like pillows on your ears. Can wear for hours without ears feeling hot or sweaty.
Easy to install, way thicker than the original cushions and even more comfortable.. these are a must have ! My ears don't touch the bottom of the cushions anymore which was the main reason why I wanted to change them. The tissue layer is better than the leatherette, more breathable, and doesn't change anything about isolation.
The cooling gel is a nice addition, it does feel nice when you put your headset on for the first 5min. Not game changer though.
Very nice, gives more clearance for my ears and doesnt hinder the external noise dampening.
Huge difference in comfort. Cannot recommend these Earpads enough. They shipped very fast and have exceeded my expectations in every regard.
Absolutely love these earcups! So comfy compared to the original!
If you wear glasses while using the computer, these make the headset uncomfortable. Without glasses, these are great.
Unfortunately that means I wont be able to use them
Easy install after watching the video and takes care of my ear discomfort - easy upgrade for the Nova Pro's!
They're great -- so much more comfortable than the stock earpads!
No more toasty ears… it change the sound profile a little but they are great. Also their customer service is awesome thanks Carla! Recommend this 100%
I was really anxious about doing the installation. Not everyday that you have to take something off a really expensive set of headphones... but the video was really helpful to explain all of the details AND all of the things that we couldn't see as well. Even for someone who isn't very handy, I was able to get them changed in less than 5 minutes. If it got any simpler, my kids would be doing it for me.
These pads have improved the comfort & ANC of my Arctis Nova Pros immensely!
No more annoying ANC point inside the ear cups, base is deeper, sound stage is more immersive and I can wear them for longer now!
The ear cuffs are absolutely amazing. They are comfortable and solve all the issues I had with the original arctis nova pro wireless cuffs. The install guide that wc has made me feel comfortable and confident in my ability to replace them. They have gone above and beyond.
Fast shipping!! Works perfectly!!! Thank you
These are the best ear pads ever. Especially for the Nova pro and the ANC knkb that would touch my ear.
The cushions are great and resolve one of the biggest issues with the headphones: the ears are no longer touching the ANC bumps. However, due to their thicker cushions, the slightly modify the geometry of the headphone and as a result the pressure to the head is significantly higher above the ear then below. This does not interfere with audio or anything. It’s just a subtile difference and could easily be solved by making the cushion a bit thinner above and thicker below the ear, to create a asymmetric shape, to compensate for the different geometry. All in all: much better than the original cushions! Just a bit expensive for me living in Germany (~ 30$ cushions + 11$ shipping + 10€ customs)
The quality is top notch and the cooling gel works as advertised, the only thing I’m not wild about is how much thicker they are. It causes them to not sit super flat on my ears (more pressure on the top, less on the bottom). I wish the part of the cushion that touches your head was angled slightly, as this would solve the problem. Other than that, they are perfect.
It's huge. It's cold. Zero sweat after every session compared to stock pads.
Unfortunately I had to go back to stock because I cannot get used to the difference in sound quality that the freeze pads introduce. Even after some EQ, I still prefer the stock pads sound signature (also EQ'ed).
Gave the pads to my friend and he loves it. He gave them a bass boost and it was all okay for him.
got the wireless wc freeze version, and the was wrong because i have the wired headset, i kvickly ordred the pads for the wired version on amazon.de , and i must say they are great, nice and cool and easy to fit , i cant tell if there durable yet but they feel great and i highly recommend
