I don't recommend Shure pads but HM5 pleathers make the sound more refined, airier and more spacious, as well as improve isolation.  The sound isn't as in-your-face as before, it overall sounds like "moving a couple of rows farther back from the stage".  Treble balance improves a little bit and upper midrange is a little stronger than before.  Definitely recommended.
