usually taobao/aliexpress/lazada have earpads of specific models.
I found most of my replacements mostly below RM100 (been buying grado earpads of every size)

As long as they're somewhat branded then you should be able to get them

if you can't find your model as long as they are circle/oval type then do small measurements of the width and length and stretch fit them.

My xiaomi headphones don't have replacements but a small diy handiwork with bose qc15 earpad replacements fit perfectly

My headphone is 2 years old, tried checking with JBL Malaysia and JBL China and they confirmed already discontinued...
Anyway, will do as you suggest - get an OEM earpad with similar measurement. rclxms.gif

it's best if you could tell what headphone. I don't really know what 2 year old phones you using

I can only assume this is your perfect fit although it is not exact model match

hi namen, I don't own a QC15 headphone. I only use the replacement parts for other headphone (in this case it's a xiaomi headphone)

I just used the pads from QC15 and slip the old xiaomi cardboard (or plastic? can't remember) earpad holder and hotglue back in.
