I've got a set of Stax SR-202s that need some refurbishment love. The foam inside the earpads has disintegrated, and the headband itself doesn't retain tension.
Is there a reputable business or Stax-loving soul out there who can bring these back to ship shape? The US distributor Yama's Enterprises (or Accutech?) gets all kinds of loathing on this forum, so I wasn't keen to start with them.
I'm in the San Francisco Bay Area - happy to ship anywhere (though for these cans not sure it would be worth shiping outside the US).
Many thanks for your guidance.
This isn't hard to do yourself.
The most tedious part is pulling the ear pads off (they are simply stuck on with a sticky double-sided tape) and cleaning the residual sticky material off the hard plastic cases to provide a clean bed for the new ear pads to be stuck on (the newer pads have a separate, non-decomposing type of earpad mesh).
