I've had the stock pleather pads on mine for several months and they are very comfortable. The main thing is to loosen the clamping force on the headphones. Then after that the pleather pads are fine for comfort.
[Review] Superlux HD681 EVO - Page 29
Gear mentioned in this thread:
They now come with an extra set of velours pads. Changing them is easy and can be done in a few minutes, just pull the existing pad of from one side. You will see how they are attached and then just put the others back on, they are quite flexible but being careful is always a good idea.
I know, I own the EVO mk2 (with extra velours) for a while and many other Superlux models for years.

The question has already been answered a few messages earlier.
You just pull the existing pads off, from one side. You're in no danger of damaging anything.
The pads are basically sleeved onto the edges of the cups, like a sock.
To install the new ones you just reverse the procedure.
It will take a bit of patience as the new pads are usually very tight, so you'll need to stretch them gradually until they fit.
I have to do that too when they arrive. Was it easy to do then?
Mine arrived today and they are burning in now. My wife changed out the pads while I held them steady, and it was VERY easy. It took about 1 minute to do each side.
How long of a burn in period is required until they "peak"?

Thanks. I didn't know it was that many hours. They sound good, but so far I like my KSC75's better.
