@ Tiemen: I also noticed that if they sit tight there are no noises. You are a lucky guy!
@ warubozu: Yeah, that's exactly my problem! They told my that their supplier stopped making them due low demand in China - pfff! I will head over to the CD3k-Appreciation Thread and ask around who else needs pads. Maybe we can persuade JMoney to make some nice leather pads for our beloved Sonys, wouldn't that be nice? Are you in?
