It doesn't work that way, velours don't have the tonality I want, besides it is already very well-damped so adding holes will do jack.
The reason why I even considered ripping up a $20 pad in the first place to try modding it, is because I saw the potential in the pleathers. It had a tonality that accentuates the warm full-bodied sound that the planars give, but needed the extra nudge to extract upper end detail and sound cleaner and less resonant in the midrange.
Doesn't matter how hard you mod the velour pads, they will not ever have the weighty lush lower end that the pleathers have.
