Hi, I was treasure hunting through the basement of my deceased grandparents and found... well decent headphones made in Germany.
PMB 25 II 1970's (MB Peerless)
They look quite OK, the Cables (loose contacts) and Ear-Pads (vaporised while touching them) need to be replaced though.
Here a pic without the pads which I removed after initial testing (had to shower afterwards)
I did a quick listening check (hence the loose connection) and... they still sound great.
They actually sound like modern Sennheiser and very ~spacious....
Sadly no Ortho-Drivers... which PMB apparently used to build back in the days
(they need to be cleaned...)
horrible Cable is horrible...
The Ear-Pads are attached just like K240's (sadly the K240 pads don't fit, they are to big)
So back to the Topic:
Has anyone of you ever had the~pleasure to replace some PMB 25 II or similar Ear-Pads?
I've been looking for a replacement the last week but haven't been able to find any decent pads.
The diameter of the outer plastic mounting (previous pic) is 8.5cm (3.35 inches),
the diameter of the outer smaller plastic circle is 7.5cm (2.95 inches)
Maestro is... more or less what's left of Pearless or PMB, so I guess it is the first spot to look for replacements...
but I guess none of 'em fit.
I checked several headphones which I saw in a store today but didn't find any.
Do you guys have a clue where to find fitting ear pads?
