What material do you prefer for Ear pads.

Just wanted to see what material you guys/girls prefer for headphone ear pads.  Im currently on an epic journey to find some sweat Headphones and wanted to know what you prefer.  Another thing Im wondering is what is the most comfortable material or if you could recommend some headphones that are the most comfortable no questions asked.   

 

Also does it even matter what material when your looking at buying higher end Headphones? I would assume the material would be squared away but would hate to just buy blindly and regret my choice. I have only ever owned pleather so dont know what to expect.  

 

I know the majority of the people have pleather so if you could please answer the poll with what you prefer rather then what you have that would be great.

I am yet to buy some for my Superlux, but I'd say velour.

I use the velvet ones on my Clouds instead of the leather ones cause they get too hot.

Velour or Leather.

 

 

Pleather doesn't breathe so it's painful.

I'm all for velour, leather doesn't feel as comfortable for me and sweat becomes an issue.

I seem to prefer pleather, I find the velour pads on my Clouds irritating.

I'm pretty sure I like pleather, as I know what the other two materials are but my headphones are made from a different material and I assume pleather is just plastic leather.

velour makes my head itchy

Thats that. If you need to get in touch chances are you can find someone that knows me that can get in touch.

Velour, with hard memory foam. HD800 and K7xx/ K712 use these materials and all three of them are extremely comfortable to use

Velour, I can't use leather for a prolonged period of time for obvious reasons (sweating and sometimes itchy conditions it produces)
