    Ultrasone HFI-780 replacement earpads

    Hey guys- Does anyone know where I can buy replacement earpads(pleather or, hopefully, velour) for my ultrasone hfi-780? I looked on Ultrasone's site, but it only has pleather pads for the pro 550 and pro 650. Does anyone know if these will work on the HFI-780? Thanks in advance.
