Last year I bought a pair of Sony MDR-CD1700 headphones from ebay.
they are very very nice
Though I have one problem.
the lush, plush velvet velour ear-pads are probably over 10-12 years old.
they must have been originally black, or silver, but are now a dried-out faded grey, plus they look like they've collected other peoples' sweat and dead-flake-skin, as well as dust, for all those years.
so it feels a bit unhygienic to wear.
I dont have the original manual to find out the model number, as I'm trying to contact sony.services for a replacement, but of course, they cant help unless I have the exact model number., which wasnt 'MDR-CD1700' oddly.
even then, I doubt Sony have replacement velour ear-pads for 12 year old headphones.
does anyone have these headphones, along with its original manual? or any manual for it? - so that I can send sony the model number and might get some luck.
I really would like to get new velour ear-pad replacements. not leather.
I;ve been looking at Beyer velour ear-pads for the 770/880/990 etc, but I'm worried they will not fit properly, as the sony's look specific.
perhaps the mdr-cd3000 are the same shape?
anyone have any suggestions?
