Nice! Wish they would have made this more clear during the order/info process. I cancelled a Silver set specifically because I feared the white pads would look bad after a while. I re-ordered Space Gray. Which will looking pretty cool with red pads!

Did some googling seems like these ear cups use polyester, shame. Once I walked into a high end store and asked if something was polyester, since I am allergic, and they said we don't use any synthetic materials. If we are to believe apple is high end it's a bit disappointing.
If these are so easily replaceable 3rd party options would pop up pretty quickly with leather or other materials. There is never a shortage of all kinds of accessories for any Apple product it seems.

Where is Product Red?
Agreed. It seems the obvious products apple could sell a boatload of in the RED line (iPads, all phones, a macbook air etc.) to those virtue signalers with cash to burn, they don't do. Tells me the last thing they want to do is turn over cash to charities.

Bruh, if you don’t have plenty of those you aren’t ready. You work your way up to these cans. Start at the bottom.
The only time I would have a problem with no charger included is if you can't charge with existing cables and charges, which the iphone, and this can do. I am so confused why people are upset. If you want to take advantage of quick charging, then yes you can buy the charger, but everyone has the chargers and cables already.

Man oh man. Now you're over $600 to get the color combo you want if you want to mix it up.

Correction. It will look REALLY cool. ;)

$69 for a set of replacement ear pads is not cheap but compared to some other headphones (costing somewhat more than the AirPods Max), it's not outrageous, e.g. $149 for replacement ear pads (which also attach magnetically) for Meze Empyrean headphones:
