It should be noted that there would be difference in noise isolation, sound stage, and basically overall sound quality when you switch from leather to velour. I've tried replacing mine with this since they are more comfortable but the sound quality really suffered.
Can you elaborate a bit? How did it suffer, exactly? And what kind of headphones? (ATH-M50x?) I've heard that leather/pleather helps more with bass response -- am I going to lose a lot of bass with velour? Because that would NOT be good for me...
I've been looking around for reviews for these pads and the general consensus is that they're extremely comfortable even after extended use, less 'sweaty' than the leather pads, more leakage of sound, less isolation and reports of loss of bass.
So by the looks of it, these will be good for long use outside of the house for the comfort factor, but for listening at home it'll be best to stick with the leather pads that come with the headphones for the better sound quality if it really bothers you that much. Also if you like to listen to music at medium-high volume then the leakage of sound may be an issue if you were using these in the office or on a plane where it can disturb others.
Thanks! I may still give 'em a shot, but I definitely appreciate the reply.
