help with install replacement earpads

I recently bought a replacement set of real Sony pads for my beloved giant-killer Sony MDR -V6 cans.

Problem is, I can't get the new pads on to the earphone. My situation is somewhat complicated by stroke damage to my dominant left arm, which makes most tasks of this type at least three or four times as difficult as they were pre-stroke.

At tomorrow's meet in Queens, I'd appreciate any advice or assistance from our head-fi.org's collective wisdom/experience.

I'll be wearing a name tag reading "GRBWITT" (my head-fi.org ID) and "George Witterschein" (my name in the real world, if the world beyond headphone audio is infected the real one). And I'll be wandering around looking for generous offers of assistance (you learn not to be proud after you're partly disabled).

Grbwitt a.k.a. George

I'm sure someone will take a look at it and it'll get done by the time the meet's over.

Ok. I'm requesting anyone that has Shure IEM's that do not use their tri-flanges and are willing to part with them. I apparently have a rip on the 3rd (largest flange) and it doesn't seal correctly anymore. =[ So I'm willing to buy a pair or 2 off anyone that has spare tri-flanges tomorrow. Let me know please.

Don't worry, George. I'll certainly help you out as I'm sure many at the meet would be happy to. I did a pad replacement on my old 7506s with DT250 pads so I know how much of a PITA they are to get on. I'll be wearing a gray hoodie with "Warrior" on it (it's a motorcycle for those who don't know). I plan on getting there near opening time if you want to take care of it first thing.

Anyone?

I'll bring some stuff that should cover you. Sounds like we'll have some parts around.

If others are going to be bringing a soldering iron I would prefer not to travel with my Hakko station. I just want to make sure we're covered before I take it off of my to-be-packed list.

Wow.. I’ve lost track of time. I haven’t been doing too much with headphones lately. I had forgotten about this meet until just now. I don’t know if I’ll be able to get done what I need to in order to free up the time. At this point it looks unlikely.

Unfortunately there is no way that I would be able to bring down my good source and amp. Since I got the Symposium Isis rack and the Roller Bloc isolation devices my system setup is entirely too time consuming to justify tearing the system down to bring it to along.

If I don’t make it I hope everyone has a great meet.

Vincent,

It would certainly be generous of you, which is probably why no one is replying. I know it makes me feel like I'm guilting you into to doing it if I think I'd like it.

Many thanks! You're very generous, Warrior.

I'll be there early too, traffic permitting, and will have a buddy with me from the New Jersey Audio Society. He and I will go to school on you.

Ethan, if you don't come, who's going to bellow out (and I quote):

"Everyone, can I have your attention! It's meets like these that make this a great group and if the room doesn't get paid for, we won't be able to have meets anymore. So everyone dig in and give Aaron some money?!"

(...group storms Aaron)

Without you and Tyll there I'm going to have to depend on the food and repair activity budgets getting cut into
