people are changing out the earpads primarily to increased comfort and listen to them hours at a time, they still sound good with the stock pads
they are cheaper new than the above mentioned used vmoda
they run for around $50 without shipping while the vmoda run around $160 new
there hasnt been any complaint about a faulty pair so far for the jvc and if there is concern, they are cheap to replace

edit: but by all means, if vmodas are the style your son likes, go get him one

That's not accurate. Most people are changing the pads out to improve the sound. I'm not saying they sound bad. I think that they are a good value. But a lot of the testimonials in the owners thread are colored by the fact that they are using them with different pads. 

 

Also, you forgot to mention that the shipping is international. So cost on these is around $75.
