I want to buy new pads for my RP21s, since the ones I use now are basicly falling apart

I read something about the Beyerdynamic DT770 pads!? Since I'm from Germany, those will be really cheap to get, but which ones should I buy?
the velour (love the silver ones, they give a nice touch to the otherwise...well "disgusting/distasteful" colours)
pleather (think I use them right now, but am not sure, since I bought them off a fellow Head-Fi'er)
or the leather ones?
The price varies from 18€ to 28€. The velour pads just look super-comfy, whereas the leather pads look really sturdy and longlasting.
Fixing all my phones right now but this time I wanna do it right
cheers

The DT770 pads certainly fit - you might want to search the forum for opinions of what the velours do to the sound, though. The bass may disappear.

The original pads are probably similar in feel to the 'softskin' pads for the DT770-M. German Maestro (formerly MB-Quart) makes several styles of pads that will fit these too.

Beyer will sell you real leather pads, if you want to go that far.
