    Hi folks,

    As the previous pair I had, I've loose again one nose pad (always the right).

    Now of course I'm struggling to find an original pair of nose pads. But question is: there is any trick to reduce the probability of loosing again this part?

    Any suggestion where to find original parts (no aftermarket)?

    Thanks again for your support

    Are they interchangeable somehow? I mean, left/right?

    Thanks for your answer

    Just a thought... Why not trying aftermarket ones since OEM aren't working right for you.

    Get new OEM as back ups.

    They're not left/right interchangeable unless you modify them significantly. The result of an inverted pair vs normal installation would result in difference of how high they'd sit on the nose

    you could use LL or a RR if you have a crooked nose.

    OEM replacements turn up here now and then if you're patient long enough but you'll pay up the ass for them. I've used quite a bit of LG rubber and, being silicone, they're not the same as OEM, but they are quite suitable replacements. In fact, I just bought a pair of R1 nosebombs from LG. I haven't had any slippage problems yet (TWSS)...
