I used these with my QC35 headphones. I had already replaced the original Bose pads with new Bose pads, so this was my second go. I didn't bother using the L and R covers, just left the previous ones on. The pads do fit, but it can be a bit fiddly to install them...to be fair it was exactly the same with the genuine Bose ones but I got there in the end.
The padding is maybe marginally less thick than the Bose pads, the 'leather' is similar quality, maybe 95% as good. I've been using them every day for 6-8 hours a day for about a month now and no signs of wear and tear, so far so good.
The only downside is the noise isolation isn't quite as good as the originals. when I put on the headphones and switch on noise cancelling with no audio playing, the original ones were just that tiny bit quieter...maybe the foam is slightly less dense, or the fit on my head is slightly less tight meaning a little bit more noise sneaks through. Once audio is playing there isn't any hint of background noise. This isn't a huge criticism, but there is enough of a difference to notice it for me.
At half the price of the original Bose pads, yes definitely value for money, and no more difficult to fit than them either.
