It's time to replace my ear pads. The reason they broke is because I found the cups very shallow and my ears rubbed against the plastic underneath. I was able to fix this by cutting up a microfiber cloth and shoving it inside the cups around the edge, but this was an imperfect solution as the cloths didn't fit quite right and I had to keep adjusting them every other time I used them.
So now I'm left with two options: buy a replacement pair of pads from Sennheiser and add padding properly (using backer rod or something similar instead of cut up cloth), or use pads that aren't officially supported by these headphones. Does anyone know of any pads that will add more depth (or at least allow me to add depth with said backer rods) that actually fit on the HD280 PROs? I've never replaced ear pads before so I don't really know how to go about finding the right ones.
