I have heard about a number of different options for ear-pads. But I haven't tried any.
For pleather, some recommend the Shure SRH-840's pads. They say that it can reduce the bass boominess and bring out the mids slightly.
For velour, I have heard about people recommending the Beyerdynamic DT 250's earpads. Velour is soft and much more comfortable, but it is known to reduce isolation.
I have seen more threads on the subject, but I just can't find any of them anymore. Except for this one.
I hope it will be useful!
Now..on the subject of the M50's earpads. What are the stock earpads like on your M50s, fellow appreciators? Mine are incredibly stiff for some reason. I watched an unboxing video featuring the M50, and they seemed to have much more pliable earpads. I'm thinking about buying a replacement pair of pads. Is it a good idea?

Wow. If only my family was an M50 family...
