I might like them more than real leather, and certainly better than the typical fake leather.
I agree with you completely about the comfort. I was not expecting them to be so soft and breathable! They fit my FA-011, but sounded dreadful doing so. I plan to test it on my travel pair of sony MDR-V6. Good to know about the Hifiman fit. At the next headfi meetup, I will bring the pads and test them out if anyone is willing to let me slap 'em on.

Next step will be deoxit if the free option proves unsuccessful.
Thanks for your help
Atta' boy! Deoxit is handy to have, but I found the problem to be Fostex's 3.5mm termination rather than the connector itself. All three of my units' problems disappeared when I tossed aside the stock cable. No more worries about tugging the cable accidentally or worrying if my right channel was off balance. Chrislangley4253, I am not knocking the use of Deoxit, but rather proclaiming that the stock cable is absolute rubbish.
