I bought these headphones off eBay over a year ago. They are fully functional, but as you can see from the pictures, they needs a few repairs or replacement parts. I bought them in this state hoping to get around to fix them. I've added some heat-shrink tubing to reinforce and stop the cable insulating from falling off further. [The outer insulation, the inter wires are perfectly fine]. I've added the heat-shrink quite sometime ago, and that seem to be the end of that problem. The left side grill is damaged and should be replaced. The right side outer housing it cracked, I've not noticed any distortions because of this. You could with the proper glue, glue it back together then polish up the crack or you could replace that part. [The crack has never expanded]. The earpads are slightly discolored (off grey), and are a lot lighter in appearance. I've clean the earpads and they still appear to be functionally fine, but it is probably time to replace them with fresh pads. From what I was told, I'm the third owner of these headphones. They were purchased some time ago due to their low serial number.  I've put significant hours on these headphones, just like the previous owners. I'm not quite sure how many hours are on these headphones, but it is way over 1000hours. I've made a list of parts and parts numbers for who ever feels up to purchasing these, and fixing them up nicely.
