I've got a 2 year old pair of Philips NC1 phones. The leather covering the earpads is disintegrating - and i mean disintegrating, if I drop them around my neck, I have to wash my neck as it is covered in little black flecks. So I have to replace the pads, or at least the leather. Philips (Italy) said to get some universal pads, but that's not so helpful. Does anyone have any experience in changing these - what should I buy?

As for the NC1's themselves, they are good without being outstanding. Generally excellent build, and mostly I'm comfortable with the sound, but classical orchestral seems to come over as rather bassy. The noise cancelling is good. I use these when I'm traveling, which is probably only for a few days every 8-10 weeks, so to have the leather fall apart after such a limited use is a real problem, and I couldn't recommend them because of that.
