Got a pair of HD540 reference II, they sound really great with my Benchmark DAC2 HGC. Highs/soundstage are very well defined, however I wished for more bass and higher sensitivity.

I'm used to the HD580/HD600 which have more 'grunt' in the bass area and also have higher sensitivity.
The pads are velour (for sure not originals but in good shape), don't know which kind, I just bought the headphones yesterday for a good price. The soundstage and detail continue to impress me as I listened to them all day long.
