Tricky to get the pads on, but worth itAs mentioned in the other comments, it's really tricky to get the pads on. But now that I've finally gotten them on, my headphones feel like new! I feel confident that the new pads will stay in place and last a long time. It's got the level of quality that we'd expect from Bose.
REPLACING THE PADS: The most helpful thing I'd read before I started was that you'll need PATIENCE and dexterity. Interestingly, after I took the old pads off, I got the first pad on and in place within 5 minutes, but the second pad took me closer to half an hour. The plastic ring on the earpad that you're working onto the headphones IS FLEXIBLE, and I think it actually got stretchier as I worked with it longer and physically warmed it up. I got kind of aggressive toward the end and worried less about damaging the product and more about just getting it on, and it worked, no damage involved. It's kind of like fitting a rubber band or balloon around the opening of a jar. I worked from one "pole" (top or bottom), down both sides simultaneously (while using my fingers to hold the parts I'd already fitted in place, because it slips out otherwise), down to the other "pole". Getting that last bit on is the hardest part but once it's in place, it's very satisfying!
Key points: It's stretchier than you think, hold onto the progress you've made, take your time/be patient, and DON'T GIVE UP!

Comfortable. Headset looks like new!I reviewed the messages on how hard the new pads were to install and was prepared to work at it for as long as it took. Took me about 5 minutes per pad. Once I removed the old pads, I studied the way the instructions to reinstall. I put the new pad against the plastic and the new pad looked to small. There was no way I was going to be able to stretch the new pad between the plastic and the plastic piece.
My solution: Look carefully at the plastic piece. You will see two plastic keepers top and bottom, plus two alignment pins. If you go to the top ( furthest away from alignment pins) you can work the plastic piece over the keepers. It’s tricky... you don’t want to break the keeper. You need to slide up and over... once you have the upper keepers off..use your thumb fingernail to slide down each side... caution... slide partially down one side and the the other... you don’t want snap anything. If done right you will have separated the plastic piece. Now you can slip the new pad around plastic piece.
To reinstall, orient the plastic piece over the keepers on the bottom ( the side with the plastic pins). Press down, engage the keeps, the move your thumbs up to engage the pins and
Finally press at the top to engage to upper keepers.
