Seems like mostly complaints on here, but I like the Dekoni Premium memory foam earpads on my Beyerdynamic DT770s. No, the "memory foam" isn't memory foam, just plain old squishy foam, and the leatherette is pretty unremarkable--they're a lot like the stock pads on the AKG K553 (which I hate for reasons other than the earpads). But here the foam is a bit thicker, enough to add more ear clearance than the well-worn velour DT770 pads I replaced. They're a good fit, and easier to mount than the originals. Noise isolation is a little bit better. The sound signature is just a little more bass-heavy, but it doesn't seem any boomier to me. And overall the Dekoni pads look a lot nicer than the ratty once-grey OEM pads.
I do wish I had a set of the non-premium version to see how different the materials are for the extra $10. But I'm happy enough with these, at least for DT770s.
Of note: these pads have a thin foam-ish disc that covers the entire driver opening, which the pure donut original pads do not. Such a covering is actually built into the DT770 assembly, so this effectively doubles that covering. But it must be acoustically transparent, as it doesn't seem to have any negative effects on the sound. A person could probably remove the extra disc with an Xacto blade or something if they feel otherwise.
