Edit 7 December 2015:
I started this thread looking for information on how to change the headband pad of the HD565 ovation, but as no-one seemed to know (including the folks at Sennheiser!) I had to do the work myself.
This is a very fine headphone and among the few that has withstood the test of time. Balanced connection and modern amps make the HD565 show qualities I think noone was aware of when the headphone was introduced.
The headband pad of my 565s has totally deteriorated and according to Sennheiser there is no replacement available. It seems to me that the headband is quite similar to the 580, 600 and 650 models, so I wonder if these headband pads might fit?
Only thing is I haven't figured out how to remove the old one. There is a plastic lock at each end which probably can be opened - but how?
The ear pads are for a fact the same as the 580, 600 and 650 models, but again I haven't been able to remove them. Believe me, I've pulled as much as I dared, but they won't move. Do I pull at the pads themselves, or between cup and plastic rim?
Information would be greatly appreciated.
