Sennheiser Replacement Parts

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I listened to the HD600 some time ago and I actually kinda liked it, the sound was more balenced then the HD650's.

Now I'm wondering, after seeing this on the sennheiser site:
http://shop.sennheiserusa.com/retail...ct_prod=091570

Are those HD600 Drivers? It would give me a new HD600 for only 100$ as the HD650 has the same shape.

Yep, 600 drivers. I just ordered and recieved a pair of replacements for my 580s (guess if at some point the 600s did actually use more "balanced" elements, that's no longer the case). The housing and driver has only slight differences from my 8 year old original drivers. Since you can interchange 650 parts on the 580/600, can't see why you couldn't use 600 parts on the 650.

(A) You'd need to solder everything into place
(B) With Shipping it'd come closer to $130. And since you can regularly get the cans used for $185-$200, it's not really worth the risk of breaking something.

Better idea: Just get a pair of used HD-580 for $100. Same drivers and cable as the 600s.

You wouldn't need to solder anything. The replacement is the driver and the whole element assembly (exactly as pictured). It's just a matter of snapping off the cushions, grills, and headband off of the old elements.

Granted, since you already have a 650....kinda does make more sense to get a new HD580 from Amazon ($140). If you want it to sound like the HD600, get the 600 grills and voila!
