To remove the ear pad:
Grip the back of the ear cup (over the Halo logo) with one hand, and grip the outer edge of the ear pad with the other hand. Press down and pull/twist the ear pad counterclockwise. This might require a bit of force, so don't be shy. Once successful, you will hear a click and you'll be able to remove the ear pad.
To insert the ear pad:
Place the replacement ear pad with the R or L facing upwards, ensuring that R and L are on the correct sides. Apply force and turn clockwise. You will hear a click noise when the ear pad is installed properly.
Repeat on the other side, and you're all set! Check out the video below for a visual explanation of this process.
