Replace pads on the HD25-1 II

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

How do I replace the pads on the HD25-1 IIs? Also, why do they hurt so much after thirty minutes?

Update: I can't feel my ears, ouch.

the clamp is a bit tight right out of the box, it'll loosen up. try using the velour pads too.

How do I replace the pads?

You just pull the current ones off and put the other ones on. It fits like a glove. It's pretty intuitive if you take a minute to look at it.

You can't get what?

It just seems a little unintuitive, it would be better if the pads were snap-on instead of those finicky slip-ons.

turn the plastic lip inside out, place 'em on the cups then flip the lip back over the cups. rotate the pads so they're bedded on right. done.

A very good suggestion.

 

I insert as much of the cup lip inside the pad lip as possible and then lever the rest of the pad lip over the cup lip by running a thin, flat, blunt instrument (i.e. a flat head screwdriver) gradually around the rest of the rim, between the two.

Both of these tips are awesome, I will be sure to employ them on my next pad switch!

glad to find a thread on this. thanks for the tips! 

 

does anyone know if the plastic piece that holds the pads in place should slide up and down on the ear cup?

turn the plastic edge or lip part inside out, stick them on the little cup parts then turn the lip back over the cups. turn the pads they are back to their original position and then you are good to go! hope this helps!

I'm thinking something is wrong with either the plastic piece that holds the pad in or the pad itself. I tried the inside out method and the pad won't stay in. any idea if you can purchase new plastic pieces?

aaaand we're back. I fixed the problem I had reported above...got the bands on and the pads stayed on fine. I recently got some new pads for my hd-25s. They were fine for about 3 months and then one of them just wouldn't stay on. It would be fine for a day and then would fall off seemingly at random. It fell off again a couple of days ago and is now lost to mother nature somewhere. There has to be a hack to get the pads to stay on...

 

Any thoughts/suggestions are appreciated!
