Modding the Sennheiser pc350 headset - Page 33

I use my old PC350 as a work headset - shift my phone through the computer so I have only one unit on my desk. They work great for this as I get the isolation I crave on a office floor. Over the past 12 months the plastic over the foam on the ears and the headband have perished. Can I replace the foam? Below is a shot of the condition.

As with all Sennheiser headphones/headsets, you'll be able to order replacement parts for your products. The pleather pads for the PC 350 shouldn't be too costly, I'm thinking twenty bucks or so. Do you know if any of your local audio stores sell Sennheiser products? You can ask them to order the parts for you. You could always order some nice velour pads too, the HD 595 pads fit and work wonders on the PC 350. You clearly like the headset and use them a lot, so having two sets of fresh pads to try out would be great, that's what I did for mine :)

Thanks Jaawa, I will give that a shot. So I should be able to get the headband pad replaced too, the only reason I ask again is that I have never seen it out on the web or even a how to replace.

 

I like them for the simple fact they do their job - I am not gaming in them anymore, replaced by the Q701 (not gaming much anymore fullstop) but they do give me that edge in the office. Of course I recieve a good bit of ribbing for having a closed set of cans on my head with a large boom - the whole Flight controler jokes etc.

 

 

Cheers once again,

Wormwood

I just found out from a few sources that Sennheiser doesn't sell replacement parts for their gaming range of products. So while their Part Finder doesn't list pads or headband padding for the PC 350, you could ask them or a retailer about which model's headband padding fits the PC 350. Here is the Part Finder: http://en-us.sennheiser.com/service-support-part-finder
 

At least the velour pads of the HD 595 fit the PC 350 (Part Finder: Earpads Part# 094738 1 Pair HD 555/595 $17.87), but I'm not sure about which pleather pads to get if you want those. People have been using the PXC 350 pads, those are some kind of higher quality pleather IIRC (Part Finder: Ear pads Part# 523310 Standard ear pads (1 pair) $23.35).

 

I hope that helps :)

 

PS. my headband also gave out a while ago, but it's only the pleather covering, I ripped it all off, carefully to not rip the foam off, and just the foam pad works nicely and also looks pretty good, so in the meantime I might suggest doing that. I at least don't feel the need to get the headband padding replaced, this works nicely for me.

I had to replace mine too, but I went for the leader PCX450 pads. Expensive and slightly  hot on the ears after 12 hours. But the isolation improved and I got a tighter sound.  Also peeled of the plastic on the headband, and the fabric was undamaged.

Wow. Ive had my Xense 350s (plus the xense soundcard) for a while now, and always thought something was missing, and that was the thumping bass you normally get in FPS games plus music and movies, i had heard of the hero mod before but never really looked into it, till today ( i know late to the party lol ) Just opened them up and found the case had 2 holes already from factory, still i added 1 2mm hole (heated blunt end of drill bit) to each cup, closed them back up and holy **** they are alot louder as a result, and the bass is now there, its not too overpowering although the mids and highs are ear piercing at the moment, hope my ears adjust or ill add cotton wool to them - also along time ago i replaced the ear pads with the HD 595 velor ones as the fake leather ones always leave my head sweaty and horrible yuk, so im probably losing bass with that too. Took about 10mins if that, impressed :)

Can someone reupload the pictures? The pictures on the first page were gone.
