Vote for 1266 because on stock they sound better for me.

Both are TOTL HP, if you will change pads and cable and have powerful amp go for Susvara, if not go for 1266 TC.

You need to change cables on both. The Susvara needs a more capable amp. 1266 actually benefits from a pad swap. If I throw classical music in the mix, it's the Susvara for me. Both have their benefits tough. They kinda look cute together. Like Morty and his cronenberg twin :D

For me the sound is a toss up depending on amp/genre, but I'd choose to keep Susvara purely based on comfort. TC isn't uncomfortable per se, but Susvara is much easier to wear for multiple hours.
Try swapping pads. The abyss way of changing your sound by wiggling it around does nothing for me personally. But generally I agree, sus is more comfortable long term
