I'll let you know how the velour pads sound as soon as I can find a pair in stock that aren't at rip off prices. I refuse to pay more for DT250 velour pads than I pay for DT880 Velour pads. It's just ridiculous to pay $45 for a product that Amazon sells for $30, now if Amazon could just get them back in stock.....they cancelled my last order after 4 days because they couldn't get them in stock.
Please let me know how it works out. I just replaced my pads and restored my Sony MDR-7506 sound to new and they are sounding better than ever. Although I find the pads comfortable, they feel very thin and fragile. I know it will be only a year or so before I have to replace them again. I heard that the velour alters the sound, muffles the sound a bit. IMO, the crisp and clear sound is the strength of V6/MDR-7506
