I ordered on Black Friday and got it on Wednesday.

For all the new owners- you really, seriously should invest 10 bucks and get velours. I thought they were great with pleathers, but damn once I put the velours on I haven't touched the pleathers since. In fact, I think I may have lost them.

 

I wouldn't say they transform the HE-400s into a whole other headphone ...but they do seem to tighten up the bass and create a greater sense of airiness (my guess is they are more firm and push them further away from your head) They are also certainly more comfortable than the pleathers too. And that's well worth the price.

 

Just my 2 cents, I know the pleather/velour/jerg discussion will never end. BTW, I wouldn't mind trying out some jergs, I'm just too lazy to make some. If someone wants to sell me a pair PM me! :D

Mine came with both pleathers and velours. I prefer the pleathers a lot more. Wasn't close. But I'm giving at least 150hrs burn-in before giving the velours another chance.

Sure, that's just my opinion. My point is for $10 bucks, it's a really good investment. If you don't like them, your not out much. Not like a $100 pair of vegan pads...which is absurd, IMO.

Pleather won't require a piece of tape every couple days either.

Absolutely agree about value. I guess depending on the music, I could switch the pads pretty easily.

I'm the guy on that treadmill scratching his dome and creating a blizzard.   Nah.. but yea the velours are dust magnets. Pleather and leather is just easier to clean.

lol, I wasn't singling out anybody :p but yeah, I suppose that's one drawback of the velours...they do get dusty from time to time, but a few flicks with my finger usually takes care of any visible specks pretty easily. No tape required.

Even though I prefer the modded pleathers, I definitely recommend trying the velours.

What are modded pleathers? Halfway done jergpads?

Pretty much. I just cut the holes on the inside and didn't do any of the other parts. I might get around to doing the velour outer layer part at some point, since having holes on the outside too seems like it could make a difference. I just haven't really felt the urge to sit down and do it yet.

Right on. I've got a set coming in from Modulor (jergpad) and have the necessary materials to make one. I might go ahead and try a modded pleathers per jergpad instructions then finish it sometime later for a spare
