Default Mounting headsets to helmets

I have a full face helmet. I have a Senna SMH5 headset. It came with some adhesive pads to mount the back plate to the helmet. After 5 years of all weather riding, oddly enough, the pad has disintegrated.

I'm looking for suggestions on how to mount this thing back on. I can't seem to find just the mounting pads, or even the back plate + pads.
Options do not include superglue. I've been doing that, it lasts a bit, and helped destroy the remnants of the padding I think.

So, double sided tape? Can I get a thick version of that with a bit of padding, or such?

I just want my tunes back while riding...

What did Sena have to say? Might also try some silicone adhesive.

I have not been able to reach them, due to holidays. I can maybe try calling on Monday, but I have work. Their site is most unfriendly regarding just dropping them a line. Cannot send a message without providing inordinate amounts of personal data etc.
I have tried digging through their site and turned up nothing useful. Likewise, basic google searching for something from them has also proven fruitless so far.

Silicone adhesive should do the trick yet removable down the road if necessary. If you do use it clean both surfaces throughly, clamp it overnight and you should be good to go.

Get some of that tape that the body shops use to stick emblems on car bodies. I've seen some stuff by 3M that will hold pretty much anything. My youngest boy worked at one of the local paint/body shops for a while & he got me some for sticking the wires under the rear fender on the bike. Been there for a few years now.

Silicone would provide the cushion between the headset and the helmet that the pad does now. However, I also have wire to tack up to my rear fender and had considered some kind of double sided tape.
I'll look into both options. Thanks all!

Neodymium magnets work well, stronger than adhesive, yet can be removed or repositioned.
