Where can I get replacement ear pads for my Audio-Technica ATH-A700 phones?
 
Will any other Audio Technica pads work?
 
 
Thanks for any help in this matter.

I actually did that.  They're nice, and I figured if they lasted longer it would be worth it for me.  There still is that little voice in my head that ridicules me for spending almost as much for replacement pads as I did to get the whole headphone, but I drown that voice in wine and all is quiet again.

In actuality, for the difference in quality, I'm thinking that was a pretty good decision if you like your headphones and are intent upon keeping them.  Actual leather beats pleather any day of the week.

Oh I totally don't doubt that it was a good thing.  Don't plan on getting rid of the A700s any time soon since they serve a real purpose as part of my gaming computer.  The little voice isn't always the most rational thing, which is why I ignore it so frequently.
