Just recently purchased these headphones. Thinking of trying out the soft velour ear pads if I can find proper replacements. I called AT and they recommended the ear pads from the ATH-AD500 model. After I had already placed the order, I looked at some images online...and they don't look like velour. (-_____-)
Has anyone ever tried or found velour ear pads for these? I've seen posts about people replacing them with leather, but nothing on velour. Whatever this stock material is...it kinda itches. (x_____x) I might end up returning them and trying out the HD598s or DT990 instead, although not sure if this is a side-grade, up-grade, or down-grade.
Thanks a bunch!
