    I have only tried the Lambskin ones so I can't comment on any of the others but I do use the hybrid on my Ether Flows and they are very comfortable but reduce the bass a tad.

    I couldn't have done that. My curiosity runs too strong. I would HAD to try two different 'phones. Which I kind of did. I got the MassDrop HE4XX's about two months ago and while I was still in the "shine new toy" stage, I got these puppies.

    I have had T1 for several years. My wife wanted T5. I’d listened to the T5’s years ago and thought they were great.

    I got her one for Christmas at a great discount but she wanted for us to listen together. It doesn’t work well w T1 & T5.

    I got a second T5.

    We take turns on music nights. It’s a lot of fun. Sometimes it’s albums & sometimes play lists.

    While listening, we review (on phones) background, bio, hx, reviews and text each other (from the same couch) things like,

    “Did you hear that cymbal?”
    “Did you know he died 3 months after the premier?”
    “Holy @&$, listen to the definition!”

    and her repeats, “These headphones are wonderful!”

    We use Mojo or Hugo 2, with their dual headphone jacks.

    I love my T1.2 but I don’t use them when she’s here. She can also take T5 to her office.

    It’s a Luxory owning both, but the deep discount was irresistible.

    For closed headphones like the T5p imo only the (vegan)leather (non-perforated) dekoni pads are an upgrade. I've tried velour and hybrids as well but I missed the isolation, the bass levels went down and treble up. The (vagan)leather pads stay closest to the original.
    Tried the same on the HD800s (open) but there the hybrids are best. On the semi-open TH900 I find the leather pads work best again.

    Got a few extra pads now :p

    You are a lucky man. My wife does not appreciate music like I do. And she REALLY doesn't appreciate my headphone "habit".:grin:

    maybe give the "music night" dates a try? Hint: let her choose the music

    Her favourite music features artists such as George Michael. I have two or three of his songs, but that is as far along that path as I can go.

    My wife is like most people in that she will say she likes music, but it is really only background noise to them. I have a mother like that also. She will also claim to be a music lover, but only have it on as background noise while she is talking and doing other things.

    George Michael?

    Yeah, that’s a deal breaker.

    I would not recommend Dekoni pads for the T5p if you care about imaging. The problem with the Dekoni pads are they have a square cross section, thus a flat inward facing surface to the driver. It reflects sound differently compare to the stock T5p pads where the inward facing surface are curvy shape.

    As I continue to log hours on T5.2, I would love to have the identical feel of the T1.2 pads.

    A specific recommendation to make a match?

    It may be a sensory issue due to the years of using T1 but it’d be great to have similar pads.

    I recommend the DT1770 velour pads. These are what I put to my T5p.
