Just got my first pair of 650's and looking to get a new set of pad. What is a good choice? Looking the fenestrated sheepskin, or jus the sheepskins.

Fenestrated sheepskin is the best IMHO. Fenestrated (perforated) models are always better for open headphones.

Sennheiser tune a lot of their headphones using the pads, and the 650/6XX is no exception, so very different pads will substantially alter the sound.

They're also designed around the sound when the pads settle. Let everything condition and adjust, and you'll find them pretty comfortable. You can flex the headband and use the headband tilt and band adjustment to get a comfortable position.

When I bought mine I was told that 100 hours was a good target. I left it playing for a week and have been loving it ever since.
Hmmm…100 hours, that‘s the expected life of the stock pads as well.:ksc75smile:
