I replaced the stock pads on my K7XX with the Elite Hybrid pads. I have three points to cover: look, feel, and sound. They look a lot cleaner than the stock pads. I will also note here that the build quality is good. They are slightly more comfortable for two reasons. First, they increase the distance from the drivers, which means my ears are no longer touching the foam. Second, they have more give than the stock pads, which is nice for wearing glasses. Finally, after swapping back and forth, I do not notice a change in sound beyond a subtle decrease in volume. (Maybe if I were to have one of each pad on while listening to a song that was playing in mono, and I were to change the output to all L or all R, then I might notice a difference...) However, the sound component of the listening experience is significantly improved due to the memory foam in the Dekoni pads. I find the K7XX to be a very creaky pair of headphones, and the rigidity of the stock pads accentuates this creakiness. By contrast, the Elite Hybrids (and presumably the other Dekoni models) eliminate these annoying sounds emanating from the headset. If you wear glasses, then I would caution against an all leather model because I find that glasses rub against the leather, which can create very loud vibrations with the slightest movement of the head. This is my experience with my ZMF phones, which have (extremely comfortable) all-leather pads.

Thanks, you have answered my biggest question concerning the K7XX. I too have found my pair to be very annoying to listen to due to the creakiness (left side only). So much so, that I considered selling them. Apparently, the stock pads are too stiff.

Glad it was helpful! Yeah, there has been an improvement, but it's not a complete elimination of the creakiness.

Never understood the hype, now I'll never go back.
I was looking for earpads for my akg k7xx's that were a bit thicker, the stock ones were plenty comfortable but had a tendency to press my plugs (earings) into the side of my neck there and it could get pretty uncomfortable. I knew people absolutely love their Dekoni gear but I could just never bring myself to pay 80-100 bucks for a set of earpads. For about half of that though I figured worst case I could still re-sell them for close to what I paid for them, this will never happen lol. You notice a difference immediately both in overall comfort and sound, it's hard to describe they don't drastically change the sound or tone of the cans, they take what was already there and improve upon it. Bass feels a bit more punchy, highs and mids a touch more balanced, and they do bring a bit of warmth. They are worth the full $100 asking price and are an absolute steel at massdrop prices, buy them you won't be sorry. I purchased the Elite Hybrid version for my AKG K7XX headphones.

Great pads, limited life.
I love these pads. Super soft and luxurious and feel great on your head. However, I've had them for a few years and the inside of the pads has already come unglued. it's still usable, but annoying. And they're hard to clean because sheepskin.

Great fit and feel.
I seem to have a small-ish head and these pads helped pick up some slack in the fit of my K7XX. The stock pads allowed the headphones some wiggle room and would shift from their place when I turned my head quickly or looked down. Now the fit is nice and snug. The change in sound is a little less like an amorphous smear and now resembles something more like a piantbrush stroke across a canvas. To put it a different way, imagine a song as a bedsheet hanging on a clothesline blowing in the breeze. You can hear the instruments standing behind the sheet. After changing the pads it's as if the instruments took a step forward and are now pushing against the sheet. Now you can see the definite shape of the instruments as the sheet moves about in the wind. The build is excellent as always (I've purchased about 4 different pairs of Dekoni pads for various headphones now.) They hold the cups a little farther away from my face than the stock pads which is very welcome. My ears get a little irritated after extended headphone use. Hybrid pads, THX 789 Amp, Micca Origen as DAC, anxiously awaiting my D70 DAC to ship.

Completely spoilt the Bass response and soundstage
I don’t know what the other reviewers are saying here but the fenestrated Sheep skin pads completely killed the Bass and changed that soundstage to a closed signature. Further the mids got shouty.

The fenestrated pads will kill bass response since you are allowing the air to leak out more. Low frequencies always need a well sealed environment to be on the louder side (spl). ex: car stereo windows up vs down, concert inside vs outside, closed vs open back headphones.

I purchased the velour ones for my K712 Pro - very disappointing experience! They are way less comfortable than the original pads and the sound quality is horrid. At the end they disintegrated after 8 months of light use.

I'm a little torn writing this as I absolutely loved these pads... while they lasted. I got the sheepskin variant ~6 months ago, and they were bliss on the ears - 5/5 in that regard.
I take excellent care of my headset, however I use it very heavily and it can tend to get pretty hot it my room. If I'm in front of my computer I have them on. After 6 months of use the glue holding everything together has completely failed/melted away and these have all but disintegrated.
I would 100% recommend these for a headset that isn't your daily driver, otherwise they unfortunately won't last very long.

Would Purchase Another!
Purchased the platinum protein leather for my K7XX. Definitely an upgrade from the stock earpads that came with the K7XX even though their made from different material. Sound signature definitely changed bass become more prominent whilst mids stayed neutral and the clarity is great in the highs. Sound stage also became wider and more distinct.

For the hifimans, I had elite velours, and for the akgs I had the all leathers. You can't lose dude, but I think elite velours are the best

Fenestrated Sheepskin - Comfort, Clear Sound, Durability
I purchased a pair of AKG K702 secondhand and wanted to replace the old stock pads with something new. After some consideration between solid vs. fenestrated version, I went with the fenestrated version. Comparing with the stock pads, the fenestrated sheepskin pads are more comfortable and cooler around the ears. To my ears, the sound signature is clearer with slightly more present bass response (AKG K702 can use every help it can get here). Lastly, these pads are holding their shape well and the leather is nicely broken in after over a years of daily use. I am happy with the purchase and will replace with the same when the time comes. Recommended!
