Don't get the velour whatever you do! They eat bass like it's candy. I can't speak from experience on the others.
Well.. They're velour. They don't seal sound. Some people don't want tremendous bass. Bad headphones are made bass-less and unclear whereas good headphones can be made to have clean sound no matter the sound signature. Sound signature is preference. I like my 558s being a more natural sounding headphone. I have dark blue HM5 pleather pads and dislike the sound. They dim the highs, bring out more mid bass, more than necessary and they're distorted. Some headphones and some ears are just meant for velour.
I didn't use them on sealed headphones. You could expect that to happen on a sealed headphone when you break the seal, but that's not what I did. I tend to prefer when my earpads don't drastically alter my sound signature.
That's not quite what I meant. Velour does not seal air as well as leather therefore air can move more freely in and out. Now usually people look for pads for improved comfort. If you change the material, the sound signature will be altered.
Velour on it's own eats up bass, but these have memory foam which will have a bigger effect than the velour outer layer. I think the hybrid ones are the way to go, you'll get additional seal around the already sealing memory foam while also getting the benefits of the velour (no heat and softer)
