Is there any replacement earpads for these headphones? My earpads get pealed after two years. I search with google and there is not any. I can use some other pads if possible, like sennheiser's. Has any one experience abouth this issue?

These headphones need a serious refresh.

Things that are needed/desired in an upgrade:

Dolby Atmos

DTS:X and DTS Headphone:X

4k/60Hz, HDR (HDMI 2.0a) and HDCP 2.2 support.

Anything else?

If they added these features I would pick one up in a heartbeat.

Aside from that, I'm not sure that there would be much benefit in supporting Atmos/DTS-X/Auro 3D formats at present. The headphones don't use several discrete drivers for multichannel audio. They take audio with up to 8 discrete channels and apply Sony's proprietary form of surround sound processing to essentially remix the audio down to two discrete channels that simulate 9.1 channel playback. I doubt you could tell the difference between a native 7.1 Dolby TrueHD/DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack and a Dolby Atmos/DTS-X soundtrack when played back thru a pair of headphones such as these, even if they supported object-based rendering.

In any case, I think the best course of action would be to develope a new "processor" unit that supports all of the latest audio and video formats. The processor could then be sold separately as an upgrade for those with the existing headphones. And, it could be sold as a bundle with the same headphones as the current model for those who do not already own the current model.
