Fortunately, they came with spare black ear pads.
The most comfortable (and long lasting) are the velour pads. They last two to three times as long and don't peel like the leatherette ones do after a while.
You only need to change the velour ones when the internal foam is turning to dust.
I swapped over to the velour ones years ago. :thumbup:
They're more comfortable but don't block external noise nearly as well. I still prefer the leatherette ones on a plane (not that I'll be going on one for a while...)
