i would but i have no DIY skills
thats why i was looking to see if anyone knew of a place/someone that sold better pads for he-500.
my velours are way too flat to be comfortable (they came on top of the headphones in the case, i think they got kinda crushed, they look fine now but they're still much thinner than the pleathers, so im using the pleathers atm.
I would recommend a pair of the stock Denon pads. No one seems to like them but me. I love those pads on all the HiFiMans.. But we all know YMMV
