I know this sound like a silly question, but are the gimbals and rod blocks on the PS1000 metal or plastic? I'm asking this because the RS1 comes with metal gimbals and plastic rod blocks, so I would have thought that the PS1000 would have at least come with metal gimbals to begin with, and possibly metal rod blocks, and you just may be looking for aluminum because of the weight.
If the PS1000 comes with plastic gimbals and plastic rod blocks, just spread the gimbals slightly and the pins on the side of the gimbals will pull away from the drivers (releasing the drivers from the gimbals). Use A blow drier to heat the plastic boot on top of the gimbals, then pull the plastic boots off of the tops of the gimbals, and then slide the gimbals out of the rod blocks. Then use a blow drier to heat the rod blocks, then firmly grip the rod blocks and pull them off the headband.
(Put a twist tie on the (right driver wire), before removing the left driver from the gimbal, so you know it goes to the (R) right rod block.
