I personally prefer the sound of the HD25 pads. I also find it easier to seal on my ear compared to the the Amperior pads, and looks nicer as well (has a burly look to it). But summer isn't really a season to wear headphones, they're just too sweat inducing for me.
@Tom22 Well, there's the HD25 Aluminium/Aluminum pads. I've tried them in-store and found them to be the best in terms of seal, comfort, and probably isolation as they are the squishiest of the all the (official) HD25 pads.
i can definitely see why you feel that way, i think the pleather pads do feel like their sealing better, haha i'm not a fan of the papery look (just imo ofc) but i agree its not the season to wear headphones (its starting to warm up here in toronto the last few weeks and i have since moved towards iems for both home and outside use)--> avoids sweaty ears
thats a great suggestion! i don't know why i didn't order those hd 25 aluminum pads earlier (i should've gotten those instead) from the pictures they look nice!
i like squishy =) it would make the amps more comfortable too (i would imagine the isolation would be better> the stock velours on the amps now) which i thought is just okay (in comparison to the pleather hd25s i mean) those did a better job
