Well the clamp force on the LCD's are bit more stronger than the HD650 (comfortable as hell) so not sure if that is a fair comparison. I personally don't mind the Vegan pads except that my ear's can't stand them after half an hour or so, I guess I have skin reactions to the vegan pads where others have it against the leather pads, oh and fyi I get my head shaved bald now and then and no I ain't some bald pops.
I only ment they're the same as far as velour pads go. Of course they're different when it comes to fit and comfort...and weight.
Haha. I can understand that completely. Hell, I can even understand some saying they wouldn't wear the vegans because of how
hideous they are. Either way the leather pads aren't intolerable for me, personally. It's just the contrary for me,
no detriment to SQ, I love their look and they're just that bit more comfortable which goes a long way for me.
And lastly, that's why you went the stat way so you didn't have to worry about any of the aforementioned issues.
