These pretty much stopped the discomfort from using the origjnal pads. With the original pads my ears would start to hurt after ~3hours of use, but with these I can use my m40x the whole day just fine.
Which material did you choose?
Right, forgot to mention I got the Elite Velour pads. Still holding up strong!
One more question. Do the pads just improve the comfort or do they also alter the sound?
It's been a long time since I replaced the pads, but I believe there was a small sacrifice in audio quality (sounds a bit more muffled?), but it was well worth it for the comfort. I only use it on my gaming machine, whereas on my workstation I'm using DT770s, so the audio quality on the m40x didn't matter as much as all-day comfort.
I switch between velor and memory foam on my M50X but for the most part settled on the memory foam. The memory foam sound similar to OG, velor lose a bit of low end and sound a bit more open. Neither sound better than the other, just different.
This is with Brainwavz pads, but I'd imagine it holds true elsewhere.
