Turtle Beach has replacement cushions for about $2 each. And some are the nicer ones that are made of cloth, not the plastic coated stuff. I find the standard cushion that comes with most headsets end up flaking black pieces of plastic after a few years. Just find one that is near the size of your headset. Most cushions are loosely fit in place.

I don't believe those pads are designed to be replaced. The CM500 is a very nice headset for the money, but it is a throw away if you have problems. There may be a way to retrofit another set of pads if you can find some that somewhat fit.

If you find some please post it as I would like to have a spare set.

Hi Keith,
I have not tried this but there is a Yamaha Service portal where you can inquire about parts. It is here:

I did log in and look for the part number with no joy.
