Desolder it, pop a new one in. I have no clue how yours is on there, some are board mounted, some snap in, some are glued in, some are panel mounted. Just get something similar to what's there (mounting style, you can do better in quality pretty easily) and attach it in the same way.

If you mean the headband I have one. A little thick in my opinion.DSCN4718.JPG


Ditto, I got one, and I don't like it very much.

I think they sell cheap USB adapters with jacks in them as a work around or you could use the issue as an excuse to get something like a uDAC, Fiio E7, or total bithead. I'd consider the latter, the headphone out on most PC sucks anyway. My Audio GD Sparrow was $183 and it smokes my old uDAC.

How can it be worse than the original headband?

 

I have been looking into DIY Lambskin options, but I would spend more money doing that for something that will not be as padded. I still might do it eventually, but I see the Beyer headband pad as a quick, dirty solution to my problem.

 

Next up are some Sennheiser HD-414 pads modded to look like flats.

Well I've been doing these mods on an off, and tonight I decided to liberate my drivers. I was originally going to do just a partial liberation, but as I was going around cracking the glue, the actual driver ended up popping out, without the front cover. I decided to just do the full liberation instead. The first one was a little rough, but I got it out in a couple minutes. The second one went really quick... got it out in less than a minute, and the housing was hardly damaged at all. Only thing is I'm getting intermittent sound from the left channel and I can't get sound from the right. When I first got the drivers out, I plugged them into my iPhone and got no sound from either. I was really disappointed and went about the troubleshooting process. I visually checked all connections, and they all look fine. I'll attach pictures at the end of this post. I then took out my multimeter, and everything from the 1/8" plug to the four solder joints reads as it should. I kept looking around and couldn't find anything obvious. The only thing I could think of was that the magnet wire could have been dislocated somewhere, but everything looked perfect so I couldn't find the problem area. After an hour or two I gave up and in a last attempt, I shoved the left driver back into the housing it came out of. It went in kind of diagonally, but, lo and behold, I was getting music! I took it back out of the housing, and no sound anymore. Put it back in, and got more sound. This time when I took it out I still got sound out of the driver. Then I put the driver on the table to work on the right driver, and the sound stopped. I tried pressing different parts of the driver, and sometimes I would get sound when pressing on the magnet plate, and other times I would get sound from pressing hard on the back plate that's covered with felt. I can't seem to find any correlation. The only thing that seems to work every time is pushing it back into the housing, whether straight or at an angle.

No matter what I do, however, I can't get any sound of the right driver. I was originally inclined to say I somehow messed up the voice coil, but given that I could get sound of the left driver with some fiddling, I'm inclined to pin the problem elsewhere. Do any of you guys have any suggestions? Maybe I'll let it sit for a day and see if time magically cures anything haha.

 

Anyways, here are some pics:

Front of left driver (can get working sometimes):

Front of right driver (can't get working):

Back of right driver (duct tape was only there to prevent cable from moving during liberation process):

Back of left driver (plastic is more mangled than right driver, but this one works sometimes!):

3.jpeg

 

Left driver shoved into the housing diagonally (only surefire way to get it to work):

Sorry if I attached too many pictures, just hoping someone out there will be able to help diagnose what the issue is! Any and all help will be greatly appreciated:)

 

 

 

Edit: just read someone asking about the Beyer headband pad. I'm using it on my PS1000, and I think it really increases the long term comfort. I didn't have a problem with short term comfort, but after more than 2-3 hours of nonstop listening, the weight of the headphones would start to hurt the top of my head. The Beyer pad fixed that, and I can listen to them for however long I want now! The Beyer pad looked kind of large and out of place on my SR-80s and SR-325is when I had them, but I think they go well with the PS1000.

I have one. Honestly, it looks like crap and isn't anymore comfortable. It makes the headband slide around more easily too and you need to extend the cups down further down the rails. I put it in my drawer after about 30 minutes. I want to get a J$ one but fatman never responds to anything anymore.

I would still like to try it out. I can't believe that a cushiony pad like that would be the same comfort level as the stock headband and less comfortable than the J$ one. I just can't stomach the $40 or so for the J$ one right now. That money is going to my Little Dot 1+ which I am hopefully going to pick up very soon.

 

If anyone wants to get rid of their Beyer Headband pad cheap, PM me.

What about the stock one do you find uncomfortable? I never really had any comfort issues with mine I just assumed the beyer pad would make it more comfortable by what everyone was saying on here. For me it didn't add any comfort, it just made it more annoying by sliding around. If you have problems with the headband cutting into your head or something then it'll help but the stock headband is no problem for me. I only really want a J$ one because it's wider and for it's looks. 

 

Now if you have metal grados, then that might be another story. I can imagine the extra padding being necessary with PS1000s for example like the guy above said.

I wouldn't necessarily say the stock headback is uncomfortable, it just could be more comfortable. My Sennheisers (old ones) have a row of vinyl, pillowy shaped bumps on the underside of the headband and it is very comfortable. I am sure I could fasten the Beyer pad in place with no detrimental effects to the original headband very easily in fact.

post #1301 of 5003

Well it's reasonably cheap and can just pop on and off so by all means give it a try. Sounds like you just have the same idea in mind as I did when I bought it though.

I have some pictures for you guys:

I was never the best photographer >:(

 

Creation process:

 

I used paint on the outside driver cover (don't know the exact name), as well as the headband, and the C shaped clamp part. I used plastic door screening for the mesh, the inner part of each driver doesn't need paint as it will be covered by the foam earpad. The cables have white heat shrink tubing around them. Finally, for the earpads I ordered some Senn PX100ii earpads. I'll post more pictures when those show up.

 

Also, I made these for dear ol' dad's birthday, I hope he likes them :)

post #1303 of 5003

awesome gift man! I'm sure he'll love this one of a kind piece :)

I have a Xonar DX, all of the audio processing is done on the soundcard then it goes through an insulated cable to the front connector. To other guy, how is there noise it doesn't go near any power like it would if I ran it behind my PC?
