Just a heads up for anyone still looking at pad swapping - after trying a lot of pads I wound up finding these YAXI TH900 pads that not only increase the comfort more than any I've tried but have a really nice and balanced sound.
I'm using the Alcantara version so I can't comment on the leather ones. Also using full-size Dekoni attenuators with @junki 's felt mod. After fooling around with many different pads from stock to Dekoni sheepskin, this is the best sound I've been able to get out of these.
I ordered these pads directly from the Japanese company Yaxi (although they can also be purchased through Amazon for about the same price). I had discovered them when searching for something comfortable for my HD25 headphones (They are on-ear, in case you’re not familiar, and have a pretty tight camp. More on that later.) They shipped right away and arrived three weeks before they’re expected ETA (good job, Japan and US postal services!)
