Do any of you guys like leather earcups? I find them uncomfortable and much prefer velour.

Most of the really high end headphones out there like the W3000, D7000, and LCDs use leather because its a "higher quality material", but i would rather just have the comfort and malleability provided by the beyer, AD series, or ultrasone PRO 750+ models.

I agree completely. If the beyers had slightly less clamp, they'd be perfect. As it stands, theyre still the most comfortable headphone i have used, with the Ultrasone PRO900s in a close second tied with the AD700s.

I love the leather on my Denons. Most comfortable headphones I know of.

My A700's with the AD700 velour pads = most comfortable cans I own.

I really like the lambskin on the ESW9a. Super comfy. Besides that, probably most comfortable for me is the HD598. Doesn't hurt how light they are!

Got my HD595's sent to be fixed.

I've had a few cans and by far I found my Denons the most comfortable. Not too tight on my head, very light given how big it is and the soft leather is heaven on my ears. Also, they keep warm during winter biggrin.gif

Audeze have a alternative to the (lamb skin) leather earpads - https://audeze.com/leather-free-version wink.gif


i prefer leather as it offers better seal than velour, is easier to clean and is more durable also i think leather earpads look much better as well.
