Head-Fi's Best Sellers

Almost everything you can do to the inside of a headphone's housing will affect the sound. Definitely if the felt is between the driver and the ear, but also if the felt is affecting how the sound waves reflect off the walls around the driver. How it affects the sound will depend on many factors and I won't pretend to know them all.
Of course you can always just use an equalizer, which is a heck of a lot more predictable
It will most likely tone down the treble and upper midrange because of fewer reflections in the cup, and trap more bass for a warmer sound. Venting the pads with holes will raise the treble back up a bit, like a bowl pad but not as extreme. You'll have to decide for yourself if it "clogs" the sound.
