My V900's appear to have sewn brown leather covers, at least whatever it 
is was sewn together. So far, after several years in Georgia, they look 
and feel like new.

For Sony parts I've gone to the source. The hard part is coming up with 
the part number, their parts site is here if you have the part number:

Without a part number for the pads you might want to phone them:
1-800-488-SONY (7669)
