Summary: A good replacement for a great pair of headphones, I got four years out of my original ones, and it was a good thing that Bose thought about making these items a replacement as they do get a lot of abuse....
Summary: I have just received these today and have tested them quite a lot. After using my QC15 headphones for 3 years the material started to fall apart and wasn't a great experience listening to music after a while. I know I needed an upgrade, so I made sure I purchased these original ear pads.
Summary: I had bought ear cushions from a different seller and while they are adequate they were not Bose. The difference in price of the authentic Bose replacement pads is well worth paying as the fit is perfect and my QC15 headphones sound like new. I can thoroughly recommend this product.
Summary: I was a little loathed to spend this amount on foam earphone pads, given that there were significantly cheaper options. The main reason was that I hadn't replaced the pads before, so wanted something that should be "guaranteed to work and should be good". The replacement turned out to be simple.
Summary: Required as original ear cushions had started to break down. Arrived promptly and very easy to fit I decided to fit them myself as a non techy person and instructions are clear and easy to understand. Headphones now good as new can Definately recommend.
Summary: After both my previous cushions wore out within a day of each other, I was left with the prospect of shelling out over 30 quid for replacements, or around 15 for non bose cushions. I'm glad I paid the extra and can recommend that choice to other people with the same reluctance to pay the full price.
Summary: Well worth investing in genuine pair of air cushions as you have it last for another 3-4 years. It turned my QC15 into new pair of headphones. Ear pads are easy to install and there is an installation guide that comes with it. Once you snaped it in place it feels not as soft as old ones.

Summary: I replaced my bose oe2 with these because I was tired of having earpads sit on my ear rather than around. For most people, having headphones sit on their ears is fine but for me, after long periods of listening to music, it felt uncomfortable.
Summary: Read around on the internet and you will find a fairly reliable consensus emerging on Bose noise-cancelling headphones. Audiophiles tend to hate them, because they are expensive but have low fidelity (compared to headphones in their price bracket); people who buy them purely for noise-cancelling...
