Like you I didn't think the Ori pads worked that well on the D7200's. They changed the sound signature a little to much for my liking. The stock pads still sound the best to me on the D7200's. I tried the Ori pads on the HE-560's as well but ended up going with the FocusPad-A's on them. Both are improving as I log more hours on them. The D7200's are special headphones. They are making me think about offloading some of the other headphones I have in that price range, the T5P's and the P9's. I don't think I need all 3.
