I just installed a pair of velour earpads since everyone seems to like them
 
but now when I wear my closed headphones, I can hear everything going on around me
 
did I just change my closed headphones into open ones?

Which headphones and which Velour ear pads do you have?
I really doubt anyone around you can hear you what your listening to anymore then when you used non-Velours.

hello
thanx for the reply
these are audio techincas with some HE sometihng velour pads
 
many people say velour pads retain less heat making them more comfortable
because they are breatheable and let air in, I guess they are letting in lots of sound as well
I can definitely hear everything outside the headphones, it could be also due do the padding being stiff
 
but they dont seem to leak sound anymore than normal
I had someone help me test while they listened at various volumes and I checked from different locations
 
so all in all, everything is Ok and this is pretty good upgrade 
not sure how to clean these though
