Yeah. My only experience with different pads was with a pair of HiFiman 400S where I changed out their velour pads for Brainwavz leather pads. This made an improvement with the bass (which was a little weak with the HiFiman standard pads). I imagine the Dekoni Sheepskin pads would do the same. Myself, I'm not looking to make a big change in the sound of the Clear's. If I can find something as good as the factory pads, I would like to remove Focal pads and put them aside. That way in case I ever want to sell the Clear's I can have a pristine set of factory pads to put back on them.
