I can't remember reading anywhere on the Mr.Speakers website or here on the forums about caring for the Lamb Leather pads.
Now that I have my new MDs with the Alpha Pads (only had a little time to enjoy them so far =/ ) I want to make sure I take the best care of them that I can.
With my pair of M50s, whose pads (pleather) were prone to cracking and drying, I started using the sock mod for comfort and also to avoid putting my oils and sweat on the pads. This greatly helped preserve the pads until I replaced them with some Beyer velour pads.
I found some random information about caring for Lamb Leather, but its geared more towards clothing than ear pads.
Anyway, I plan on asking Dan for his advice, but if any of you have any insight, I'd enjoy hearing your thoughts/plans for your alphas.
