Perhaps enhancing the pad is an option?  You are certainly not alone in the sag factor that the AKG K712 Pro has and I feel your discomfort.   Try something like this: http://www.amazon.com/Replacement-Leatherette-Universal-Sennheiser-Beyerdynamic/dp/B00862522A   or   http://www.amazon.com/Headphone-Sennheiser-Audio-Technica-Replacement-Protector/dp/B00L61YYXQ
