After 5 years of use my Bose Headphones were looking a little tired as the foam pans had begun to fall apart. However the quality of the headphones still remained superb and I was aggrieved to pay £150+ for a new set. These replacement pads offered the perfect solution. The new pads could not have been more simple to attach, the old ones simply clipped off and the new ones clipped on.
Not only do these feel and look like new again, but I am sure that the sound is a little clearer. No doubt 5 years of use accumulates a lot of dirt!
Be sure to double check the model of your headphones before ordering, it is very easy to mistake several models as being the same.

These seem expensive but they have completely revitalised my QC3s. They were looking really shabby and kept dropping little black bits but now they look as good as new. The shape of the old ones had obviously deformed a bit too and now the noise cancelling is much more effective than it was. There are many cheap copies around and I was really tempted to give them a try, but at the end it seemed worth buying genuine parts for an expensive piece of kit, and these did the job perfectly.

Was a tad sceptical as my existing ear cushions had basically fallen to bits, but this was a cinch to replace, and my headphones work great once more. Kudos to Bose for making sensible decisions about headphone maintenance, especially given the huge up-front cost of the headphones themselves!
