While I have upgraded to better headphones for my CTX3030, I still have the original Koss UR-30 Headphones as a back-up. The black vinyl covering on the ear cushions is flaking badly (my wife teases me about the black flakes on my ears after using the headphones). I bought a pair of replacement cushions from China, which of course, didn't fit. (I could perhaps hot-glue them into place, but they don't fit like the originals.) I see feedback on these same online offerings saying how nice the cushions fit their CTX3030. So, did I just get a bad apple, or are these Chinese replacement cushions simply bogus? Yeah, I know that I can do better than the UR-30's and that I can buy a new-ish pair for about $40, but I am old and stubborn. If I can get some replacement ear cushions for $10 that fit the UR-30's, I can get some more life out of the headphones. Thanks!
