Amazing headphones, bad quality ear cushionI have the silver version of these headphones. I simply LOVE them. I use them on a daily basis with a GREAT joy. They take the experience of hearing music, TV series and movies to a whole new level. Bose is somehow making a magic with sound. Unlike other companies, they do not manipulate the sound, they simply bring it as it is in the most clear and faithful way. Along with the noise cancellation it generates the best experience one can expect from headphone. Add to this the fact they they are lightweight, super comfortable, well built, durable and wireless and you got a true perfectness. The only problem with these headphones is the cushions. This is kind of a weak spot of Bose. It took about an year before my headphones cushion's silver color started pilling off. Its not yet a big problem, since it is still totally useful, but it doesn't look so good and it is pretty clear where this is going.
I see here 2 options from Bose: either find some much higher quality material to work with so this durability issue will not show itself so fast or lower the price of this kit to something more modest like $15.

These pads are just fineI've had my QC 35's for over two years and have been thoroughly impressed by them. People need to understand that ear pads are a wear item that needs to be replaced. At the very least they need to be cleaned for sanitary reasons. Heck, even my $1000 TH900 headphones get new earpads every 1.5-2 years and they do not see the abuse that my QC35s get. I wear my QC35s for at least 2 hours a day. I mow in them. I exercise in them. That being said, I am replacing the earpads for the first time after 2 years of HARD use. Again, earpads on headphones are a wear item that gets replaced. A consumable.
The earpads provide a great seal, even with eyeglasses on. They are super comfortable, but a little hot in the summer. That is by design because, in order for the noise canceling to work, you need a good seal.
