Great Product - They last if you take care of themThe ear cushion kit sold by Bose is better than anything you're going to find online from a third party vendor (I have a friend who purchased a pair from China and 6 weeks later he was making the same purchase again, only this time from Bose). Aside from the superior OEM quality, the ear cushion kit makes it very easy, and intuitive, when making the swap from old to new, as it took me less than five minutes to complete the process for both the R and L headphones. (No need to take it into a store.) After making the change, there was nothing that differentiated the newly applied product from that which originally came with the QC-25 headphones when I first purchased them. The fit was not only snug, but the sound was on par with what I've come to expect from Bose. Having gone through this process, I have just as much confidence in Bose replacement parts as I do with the product that comes out of the box. My first set of ear cushions lasted roughly five years (there is no degradation to the remaining headphones, near as I can tell), and it looks like the cushions I applied a little over a year ago are going to hold up just as well. I wouldn't put too much stock into the negative reviews. Bose is quality and as long as you take care of the products (use the carrying case), you will be very happy with your investment and more specifically, the durability of ear cushions. I think it's great that they can be swapped in the first place. Plenty of headphones out there require an entirely new purchase if a part as significant as the cushions start to break apart.

Fantastic Replacements!I bought these replacement ear cushions for my older Bose headphones, as my wife had used them so much - mostly for phone calls - that the soft leather had started to rip and looked ratty. You simply click out the old, click in the new ones, and voila! you have what appears to be a NEW PAIR of Bose headphones! They work great, as always, and now sound great too! Thank you, Bose!!
