Yes, I know of at least one Head-Fi member who tested the Eikon pads (and others) on his E MU Teak. Check out post #1235 from the Atticus & Eikon thread:Has anyone else tried Eikon pads with these? Also, if someone ever developed a replacement inner ring thing (sewn into stock pads) that worked equally well, that could be inserted in such pads before putting them on the larger outer white ring (that attaches them to the cup) that would be great. I know a few have tried this. I mean someone actually making them in numbers and selling them to the rest of us perhaps.
I'm pretty sure this same person went into more detail about Eikon pads + E MU Teaks in subsequent posts (late dec/early jan...?). His preference sonically was the stock pads, but he found them to be uncomfortable. His preference (by far) for comfort was the Eikon pads, which he felt retained ~95% of the sonic qualities of stock pads. He said the Eikon pads are a bit oversized for the E MU Teak (~110 mm wide vs ~100 mm wide HP earcups)--but he could make it work.
As for the replacement inner ring thing, I'm confused about that. There's a brand of pads called Dekoni (sold exclusively via Massdrop), and some of those fit the E MU Teak. They have been reviewed on Head-Fi--mostly positive, but Massdrop discussion comments were more mixed as to effects of these pads on sound of the headphones. Anyway, I mention this because the Dekoni pads come with their own plastic insert, which users are advised to retain when using w/E MU Teaks (ie, put the white circular ring from the Teaks' stock pads on top of that Dekoni ring, then install pads on HPs).
BTW, I'm still getting no response from Chan @emu.com, which is totally weird. Some of the people on Head-Fi have gotten their Teaks w/in 2-3 weeks of order, and here I am, 4+ weeks out and I can't even get a response, period. I just sent what will probably be my final attempts at email messaging to Chan (vis 2 email accts)--and backed that up w/a msg via Emu.com's contact form. If no word in 1-2 weeks, I'll be compelled to do a Paypal dispute. It's the absolute last thing I want...all I ever wanted was to own & hear these headphones!
