Ear pad replacement on vintage headphones?

Can anyone help with this please - I have been trying to find replacement ear pads (or cushions if that is the correct term) for a pair of Sansui SS 2 headphones from the late seventies. I have bought them secondhand and really like the sound, especially for older vinyl sources, but the vinyl of the original ear pads has hardened making them a bit of a trial after just a few minutes!

I wouldn't expect to get original parts but are there any specialists that supply ear pads in sizes? Of course the Sansui cans are squarish (they would be wouldn't they) but any pointers or suggestions would be much appreciated - thanks.

Thanks for the pointer CJT, sadly my model is sold out though others are available even after so many years (decades even), so I now have hope that somewhere out there I may still be able to get some original replacements :)
