After trying the Dekoni memory foam pads on my DT 990, I got the same impression as a lot of people in that the sound signature is affected negatively. The isolation and bass presentation get a boost, but the sparkle and liveliness are all but gone. With the stock pads, I found the highs a tad harsh and I was hoping these pads would dial them in to a point I found enjoyable, but they had too great an effect and the end result is that my music sounds muffled in comparison. I noticed that the stock pads do not have a thin fabric liner and are just rings, so I cut out the fabric liner from my Dekoni pads. This has brought some of the sparkle back and to my ears, has reached a decent balance between sound and comfort over the stock pads.
