Default Solution to ATH-M50's sweaty pleather

It is fairly easy to sew a thin layer of velour or cotton (or other soft, breathable, natural material) onto the pleather earpads of this headphone. Pictured below is my first attempt at this - rather rudimentary, but the next attempt will surely have fewer creases. Unlike when using velour pads from other headphones, I have not detected any change in sound, even while comparing them side by side (non-modified earpad on one ear, modified on the other). The boost in comfort of this solution is really quite incredible and makes these among the most comfortable of studio monitor headphones, on par with the DT770 perhaps. It also breaks in rather well, with the pleather eventually cracking inside the material and forming a mushy, comfy pillow.
