from what i remember, i cannot stand the weight (feeling on my head) on their stock form much more than 3-4 hours usage..is this leather suspension fix that problem?

Definitely.

Actually the steel headband is kinda heavy, but I can still wear them for hours without pain.

I will definitely try to source a lighter, more flexbible headband in the future, but for now, no issues.

That leather headband looks good. I need to get round to doing my HP-1 headband.  I like the recommendation of a leather belt though I don't know if it would be quite soft enough for a headband?

 

 

 

I've been having trouble with the earpads to fit my Hp-1, I've had 3 different sets arrive and they are all for the same model that is recommended for the HP-1, from this site, but they all seem slightly too small to fit and don't quite go over the edge of the cup like the old pads do.  

 

Are the pads supposed to be stretched when glued on?

My RT-10 headset just got a crack in the headband (the fork broke off). Anyone else got issues with their PMB headsets?

 

( I put the cups on an LCD-2 headband instead, fits perfectly, and the RT10 (well, what's left of it since I use LCD-2 ear pads as well, with drivers mounted snugly to the ears on the wrong side of the baffle) sounds fantastic as usual, playing both high and low with a fine extended headstage).

I'm not too familiar with the PMB headsets, but i repaired a broken yoke on my koss a/250 yesterday. 

 

I used pcb drill bits between thumb and forefinger (though a pin vise would work too) to put holes in both parts, gradually bringing up the diameter to about 3/32", then used 1/16" fiberglass rod and jb-weld plastic bonder / gap filler. 

 

This technique might work for broken bellini struts, but someone would have to try it. I got the adhesive from amazon and the rod stock off ebay.

I found this quite hard to repair. The fork only has that short metal piece to attach to the headband. At that point, there is quite a lot of force on the headband. It was strengthened by a plastic piece that goes around the end of the headband, but that piece broke off. It was a very comfortable headband.

 

 

But, attaching the RT10 cups to the Audeze headband worked quite well.

Ah, I see. 

 

A metal plate might help reinforce it. couple little plates, some screws, and glue under it. Not worth the effort if you have another frame working. 

 

fwiw the jb-weld plastic bonder works pretty well here. The double-plunger isn't very effective unfortunately - the material is too runny. It's hard to get the same quantities of both components. 

 

But i agree that that part, like a bellini strut, can't just be glued.
