Yes I like them very much.
I discovered HD414-bowls combination when tweaking to reduce bass on my SR100 (with HP-1000 driver, not in their respective headphone, which I thought this was an issue because this plastic body wasn't optimized for the driver itself). I realized only months later that this bass is actually part of the sound signature of the HP-1000 (HP1-2-3) themselves, when I finally got my hands on it.
My pads accentuate highs a lot (like just like if you would lift the headphone a bit and create more distance), which shifted the balance too much on my SR100, but on the HP-1000, which are very much has bassy, but since they have a thicker steel rod headband (will keep the driver pressed closer to your hear), to me, make up for the perfect balance (while on my SR100 highs became a bit too prominent with the mod) that I was initially seeking for my SR100. I wish I had PS-1000 pads to compare them with. Maybe my pads are only a poor man's G-cush, but I don't think they put as much distance between your ears and the drivers. But I would like to have someone else's opinion.
