Need some help with eyecups/eyepieces

I've recently bought my second pair of what I consider the best "sleeper" pair of binocs I've ever come across - the Cabelas Outfitter HD's. I'm pretty sure they are made in the Kamakura factory in Japan, but others here can probably confirm that.

The only issue I have with these is the size of the eyecups. They are the metal screw-off type with rubber covers. There is no taper to them, and they tend to rest on the bridge of my nose instead of in my eye sockets.

What I'm wondering is whether there is another pair of eyecups I might be able to use, whether screw on, or replacement rubber, that has even a small taper to them.

What I have are usable as-is but not ideal. I tried my Zeiss eyepieces, but the Zeiss were just slightly too small, if that gives you an idea of the size.

Any helpful ideas would be welcome! Thanks!

Would someone like Suddarth Optical be the best to ask about this? Surely they have access to as many replacement eyepieces as anyone?
