Sorry, I don't know about sites in north amercia except ebay and amazon for Sennheiser spare parts.
Thomann.de (Europe) ships worldwide but I don't know their shipping rates.
It's probably the best site if you are looking for quality original Sennheiser replacement products (and not cheap China made stuff from ebay).
pads (don't require diy):
or (not sure though...):
or 560 velour pads (you will have the use the inner plastic disc of your 540 pads to adapt them, so don't throw your old pads in the bin!):
velour vs. pleather pads is a never ending debate, so i won't give any recommendations...
Pretty expensive but worth it.
Those heaphones are worth it.
