Same issue with mine, unfortunately this is par for the course with petroleum based foams. Fortunately, the headphones themselves are pretty easy to take apart. Slip a small flat screwdriver in the crease between the plastic casing and the black rim that holds the blue/gray velvet ear pad. The entire pad assembly pops right off and then you remove the old foam disc from inside. Once you have them apart, you can replace the foam with more thin foam obtained from ebay or wherever, or some other soft material. FYI, BeyerDynamic's customer service is actually pretty good if you call them on the phone. My cat chewed through my cord a few years ago, I was able to call them up and order an OEM replacement. It cost me about 8 bucks, I was able to solder it up and it worked just fine. MY problem is that the foam padding INSIDE the velvet rings is losing its pliability. I've removed the rings and washed them a couple times (they do get pretty filthy). I will probably make a couple small incisions in the back of the material itself (hidden inside the set itself when together) and restuff with some cotton batting.

LIKE YOU ALL, NO CURE OR REPLACEMENT FOR THE ROTTED PADS. WENT TO HOME DEPOT AND BOUGHT ECONOMY PLUS BRAND AIR CONDITIONER FILTER MATERIAL, ABOUT $3.00, FOR A WALL AC. THEN WENT TO DOLLAR GENERAL AND BOUGHT SCUNCI BRAND BLACK HAIR ELASTICS, EIGHT OF THEM FOR $2.00 TO KEEP PONYTAILS, NOW EAR PADS, IN PLACE. CUT THE AC MATERIAL TO FIT, AND ATTACHED WITH HAIR ELASTICS. ONLY A PURIST WOULD COMPLAIN ABOUT LACK OF COLOR MATCH. THERE WAS A SOLUTION, ONLY A MATTER OF FINDING IT. GOOD LUCK ALL OF YOU.

The ear padding is attached to and held in place by a plastic ring that fits into the speaker mount. Gently pull the ear padding outward so you can see the ring, then slip a flathead screwdriver or other object in (just a bit, you don't want to poke the speaker inside). Gently pry up , sliding your pry-bar along, and the pad should pop out quite easily.

See my tip on dealing with dodgy cables/plugs on headphones. There's a website that sells them at the bottom of it. Just click my user name to find it.
