Not sure if it's leather, Could be some fake wannabe leather most likley.
The headphones in question are the ha-rx700s
Also, the headphones don't smell bad, but only if you like sniff them up close/.

This might work:

Disassemble the pads from the headphones, and lightly rinse with soap and water. Leather/Pleather can handle some water.

Wait... what headphones do you have?

Damp soft cloth, perhaps even with a little dash of soap.
Or disassemble the pads and wash the properly in warm soap water.

I actually use leather conditioner on leather pads,keeps them clean and in pristine condition.
It keeps them soft and supple,if you treat them properly leather pads should last a lifetime.

PS, I also use it on the pads on my CD3000 and they are not leather,but it keeps them in good condition.

similar question here. the pleather pads of my ath m50 became a little bit stiffer as they used to be when i bought them. they are only 2 month old now...is this normal for pleather pads or is there some care product? ... ah and, yes i wash my hair and face on a regular basis, just if someone suggests this :wink:
