 I'll outbid Saraguie for those three 240s ... 
I love my ESW9 earpads. Besides being very comfortable, they are holding up great with all the sweaty hiking I do with them ... several hundreds of miles. If the budget allows, stick with the originals.
looks nice!
 When I received my replacement unit the fit and finish was actually better than my first unit, which, by the way, was from the first batch shipped to the US. My first unit had a wiggly volume knob almost as bad as the AK100 and the upper right corner casework didn't seem finished since there were deep striations in the angled cut.
