I've had my DT880s for more than two years now and I just changed the velour pads. The old ones were deflated and oily. The new ones are stiff and clean. Not only are they more comfortable, they sound better too!!

I can now hear more soundstage, better dynamics and stronger bass. This is chiefly due to the increased distance between the driver and my ears.

Moral of the story? Don't live with deflated and oily pads! Change them after a year.

Did you try washing them? I have not and I really don't know if that ruins them but my 2003 DT-880 pads are still very clean.

It is true that slight differences in these beyer pads make a big difference( I have 3 types that fit the 880).
