Thanks for the input guys. Aye, I'm happy with the comfort as is but I'd like to hear if there's a difference in sound all the same. I'm certainly not going to pay $150 for the privilege though.

Your post had me thinking about a leather pad on the HD650. I cannibalized the mounting ring from an old pair of pads, inserted them into a HM5  pads(also oval and about the stock 650 pad size), and it fit quite nice.
 

 
 
 
 

 
They sound fantastic.

This looks good. Who makes those pads?

Ugh looks like I'm not allowed to make a thread. Can anyone suggest a leather headband alternative headphones to the HD650s? Accuracy for mixing is #1 priority, wouldn't want to spend more than a grand. The mod mentioned previously probably makes wacky changes to the sound.
 
Never thought I'd be back to head-fi. I thought I decided to settle with the 650s for life. However, my headband started to crack and honestly I hate the velour cushions/pads, I need leather or some kind of smooth synthetic material.
 
With my HD25s I can be all oily with sunblock on me and still put them on no problem. I can just wipe them off if they get gross. That's awesome.

Nice job Fearless!! I had a pair of these that I tried with a mod on the he-4. Didn't work out so I gave them away.
