For those who bought these ear pads for their TH-X0, do you consider as a good replacement for the stock pads?

Subjectively.... sheepskin on my T-X0.
Comfort-wise, absolutely! It does feel a bit stuffy. If you press the earcups againt your ears you will hear the air leak and feel the air pressure which was not noticible with original pads.
Sound-wise, I feel the soundstage has been reduced significantly. It also sounds warm and looses some on clarity side.
But because I get itchy using the original pads... this sheepskin pad was a must.
Would I go back to stock pads? I might miss it but I would not recommend frequent pad rolling on T-X0 because it is not as easy and no harms to the pads like Senn HD598.
Each time you remove or install the pads, you are stretching the vynil wrap part to its limits. Frequent pad rolling may make the pads to be loose or tear.
I might miss my original pads but I am also very satisfied with the comfort and feel of this leather pads so I will stay with leather pads.
