I would love to try the LCD pads on my DT880's but the LCD's are on loan and I wouldn't dare take the pads off.
I stopped in a a local leather supply place and the lambskin there was incredible! Very thin and ultra soft, they don't cut the hides so you have to buy the whole skin. This was about $80 for the hide so I passed, as you need waxed thread and a machine that will sew leather as well to make it look nice. You can hand stitch it if your good at it, I dont have the patience for such things, and the wife gave me the "dont even ask" look when I mentioned it.
The MadDog Alpha pads are supposed to be very good and the J$'s are as well from what I have read. You can get a set of pads from Audeze for $80 and they are incredible.
If you do make a set that works out well, please share your pattern in the thread here.
