I've had a few pairs of stock Beyerdynamic velour pads for my DT 770 (80) because I've always been worried about sound signature being changed by other pads as well as sometimes not being able to afford the price difference. The gap has closed considerably and the Elite Velours from Dekoni were available for me at only $39.99. The stock Beyerdynamic velours are $34 so it's not a very large step up in price.
As far as comfort on my head they feel exactly the same as stock ones once they've been positioned on my head. However, when first putting them on my head they feel far softer than the stock ones. Not something I was really going for, but maybe this is a sign that they are actually "more comfortable" or "softer" during long term use. It's hard to compare something like this.
As far as sound it's also pretty difficult to compare because I'm replacing flattened out, dirty old stock Beyerdynamic pads so I'm going from "not a great seal" and "not a great sound" compared to brand new DT 770s to (to the best of my knowledge) the same sound as the originals.
When I first installed these on my headphones I removed the black fabric behind the plastic clasps because stock Beyerdynamic pads come with a replacement for those and the Elite Velours by Dekoni have a black piece of fabric where the Beyerdynamic stock pads are normally empty inside. This resulted in harsh sounds; I would say an "over-presence" of mids. The headphones leaked a lot more and let a lot more sounds in. While listening to a Ben Shapiro speech at Ohio State University on YouTube I was able to hear the water pump from my Corsair h100i about 3-4 feet from me during the gaps between Shapiro's rapid speech. That's how bad isolation had become! The bass was also lacking that "oomph" that the DT 770 normally have. The fun was gone. I was pretty upset and worried I had just wasted money. I tried putting the little black things back in and the sound is back to how I love it! Sound isolation is slightly less than stock Beyerdynamic pads though. It's not really much of an issue as far as sound getting into the headphones but leakage from the headphones seems slightly more audible. My advice is to leave those little black soft fabric circles behind the plastic clasp under the earpad when you use these Dekoni pads.
The build quality seems top-notch upon inspection but of course there's no way to 100% know this until I have had them for quite some time.
These Elite Velours were MUCH MUCH EASIER to install than the stock Beyerdynamic pads. Those stock pads can take 30 minutes to install sometimes as they're easy to rip and difficult to put on... that or you heat them with a dryer and they end up never quite fitting properly on the headphones. There's those little areas where it's propped up because it's been stretched and cannot be fixed. They're difficult to remove without ripping as well. The Dekonis on the other hand are VERY EASILY removed without damaging them or coming close! The fabric that goes on the lip of the headphones is stretchy but doesn't get stuck stretched once they're on the headphones. I'm very satisfied with the ease of installation of these Dekonis.
I also like the black instead of the grey for earpads on these headphones.
The company's support via site is a bit poor. They don't do a great job answering questions and take a very long time to do so. However when speaking with them on the phone I found that their representative was more than helpful and didn't seem like he was just trying to rush me off the line. He made a little chit-chat about audio in relations to the earpads instead of just answering my questions using the most basic of responses. I was very satisfied with the phone support. They recommended these, which were the ones I've had my eyes on for quite some time and answered all my questions.
One of those questions was about the reviews on this product on Amazon. I was informed by a Dekoni support representative that the reviews about the wrong item being shipped was from one of their distributors who sent an old model. They also told me DigitalDJGear is one of their authorized merchants.
I'd like to pick up the DT 1770 some day and hopefully these would fit those as well ;).
If you have any questions about these or the company, feel free to comment and I'll do my best to answer.
They are the cushiest/ softest giving memory foam with soft smooth cloth unlike Beyer earpads which have a weird velvety scratchy texture imo.
Closest I can compare would be the softest slowest memory foam you would feel in a pillow combined with the cloth surface from the astro a40 headphones.
Within 10min of trying them on I ordered a second pair for my other headphones (dt 770 pro 80 oh & sony ma900) both sound amazing
My first impression was that the velour on the Dekoni's is not at all as luxurious as the stock pads. For 40$, a bit meh. But the bigger issue is that, while my ear is fully encompassed by these Dekoni cups, the memory foam is rather stiff and quite a bit thicker. The thickness caused an uncomfortable increase in clamping force, and the stiffness of the foam does not help in that regard. I put the stock pads back on after two days. Getting them back on was a challenge, but I found the little plastic crowbar you get in iphone battery replacement kits did the trick. Glad I kept that! These pads on the other hand...
