The angled pads cost 100 smackers, folks, so I wouldn't anticipate the price for hifiman pads (hypothetically speaking, of course) to be any cheaper than that, especially if quality materials are used. Custom made products are always going to cost more than mass produced products; on top of that, the hypothetical pad-maker needs to make a tidy profit too, or he will have no incentive to even consider this enterprise. With all that said, I am hopping that these potential pads will cost no more than 80 bucks or so, but am willing, of course, to pay a little more.
my thoughts exactly. also the hd800 pads cost around 85 or so from sennheiser usa so I anticipate a cost around the same if it is velour. of course if it approaches black o2 pads then its too restrictive. there's a fine line between profit and excessive
