The right ear pad has ripped. Does Logitech Sell replacements? Does my warranty cover this damage? Are there alternative ear pads I can buy that aren't Logitech that work with the G930 headset?
Thanks in advance

Something like this should be covered under the warranty, you would have to contact customer care in your region for an inquiry. Unfortunately we do not sell the pads as a replacement parts, although it's possible a third party may sell them.

I would like to add to this thread, but my situation is slightly different. I would like to change my ear pads from the faux pleather to felt fabric ones. I was switching over from a wired Sennheiser and the BIG thing that bugs me is that I wear glasses and evey time the headphones shift on my head, I get a distracting rubbing sound which wouldn't happen if these were felt fabrix covered ear pads! This didn't happen with the Sennheiser ones and I have always had fabric pads, so I didn't realize this would bother me or be an issue.

Not to sound like a A$%. But have you tried adjusting your headphones to fit proper? I use the Gunnar gaming classes when I play. If the G930 is adjusted proper it should not move..Unless you are swinging your head all over the place like a mad man well gaming..lol

I just bought new glasses, so I'm not going to buy specialty glasses especially when my prescription is high and getting ultra thin lenses with my perscription puts them including frame cost to between 600-700 dollars.
As for the fit. they fit fine. I'm not moving my head all around, but simply moving my head to look up or down from the screen causes the ear pads to shift against my eyeglass frames. I'm never going to sit perfectly still and I have never had this problem before because all my previous earphones either sat on top of my ears or had felt like pads. It's obviously something that other people get bothered by, because you own a pair of glasses that are marketed as "headet compatible" which means there is obviously a market for it. Maybe I'll think about it in my next set of eyeglases, but i am not fond of buying expensive specialty eyeglasses that only work for certain things and I am not sure i want to go around 24/7 wearing yellow tinted glasses.
Providing alternate style pads, even if they had to be purchased, would work and I would buy them in a minute. Something like that should be an option anyway for a premium pair of 100+ dollar headphones.

i have thick rim glasses and the rubbing squeak always got to me. i found a cheap solution that makes a whole world of difference!
i found the mod here: http://gilmore2.chem.northwestern.edu/projects/sho
youll find the mod somewhere in the middle of the page.
basically you take a tube sock, cut off a section of it on the end and pull it over the ear cup. this way theres a nice layer of cotton/silk/wool in between the pleather and your plastic frames.

Just to stay on topic, if anyone out there has found replacement pads for the G930, please post a link here. The faux leather covering on mine has started to peel away, and I'm out of the warranty period. Thanks!
