Wash up yours Sennheiser650 -=)

post #1 of 15

If it is necessary to replace рads for your HD650 for the hygienic reasons, do not hurry up to buy new.
Very strong material allows to wash it repeatedly.


To wash warm (not hot) with water, soft soap and a soft brush.





Carefully to wash out flowing water. Strongly to shake water from pads.



Fingers to form. To put on drying.




At assembly to not press a lattice.



To compress on all circle, but clicks will be only in several places. To check up that pads completely have risen in a groove.



I recommend - it is checked up repeatedly

Definitely. I have already lost count how many times I washed it mine. Do keep in mind though that, once washed, the pads will no longer be as firm as before (just like softening your Grado Bowls).

Then again, it's better than putting on a disgustingly dirty pair of pads.

Depends on how much time you've put on them, how much dirt/grease you emit ( ), how high/low your tolerance to dirty pads is, etc etc. I first washed mine after a year of using it very regularly. I would have washed it sooner but it took some time to gather my courage before taking the plunge for the first time.

I wash them before they become noticeably dirty
While they wet they should betray the form then they become as new (if you have no a habit to sleep in headphones )

certainly it is necessary to have two pairs pads - one are washed and dried up, and others already in operation
Similarly, I the first time have dared to wash them after a year of operation, but having convinced of simplicity and safety of a method, now I wash them more often Not so it is regular as socks , but not yearly

Thanks very much for this clear tutorial, astrea - I was wondering if this would also apply to Sennheiser HD555 phones.

This is what happens if you don't wash your pads. Note those used to be the same color.

Clean pads also improves the clarity of upper frequencies and extends the bass noticably.

I must have tin, if clean, ears then.

I just periodically use scotch tape to collect all dust and lint, and after more than 2 years they are still like new without any washing. I do this to all my velour padded phones.

Yes.
The pads won't feel like they should come off without breaking, but don't worry they will. Pull with equal force on both side of the pad.
Afterwards they just click back on.

Haven't washed mine in almost 7½ years...

I should buy a new pair of pads really. They are terribly deformed.

Glad you offered that context - it truly didn't feel as if these could come off without some high potential for damage.

Cheers,
