my sony eggos finally broke

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

hi there, just looking for some advice.  i've been using a pair of sony eggo mdr-d66sl for about 10+years and part of it finally broke, a piece of the headband... so i'm looking for some advice, first things is what is a good replacement for it?  i've never been able to find something quite as portable, so far i've been thinking about the akg q460 but i'm not entire sure i like the super-aural thing rather than circum-aural.  the second piece of advice i'm looking for is a way to either repair or replace the broken part on my eggos.  it still works but one of the metal bands snapped and i'm just wondering if there's a way to order the part or repair it with soldering.  thanks for any advice.

funny looking headphones, I just googled them, Maybe looking for a generic headphone with similar way to attach the cups to the headband and change the whole headband.

 

the band has 2 metal pieces right, only one broke?

Sony eggos were insanely popular here on head-fi circa 2001ish.. Good headphones, try out the Sony mdr-zx700 as a replacement.

any reviews on the mdr-zx700's yet?  i hope theyre better than the sony atlus stuff that was released a few years back, those things were horrible.

yeah, only one piece broke, any ideas as to what kind of headphone i should look at to find a similar band.  i dont know of any other ones like it.

My Eggos still get very regular use, so practical on the move and a little Fiio E5 is a good companion for beefing up the bass.  However I also recently bought a set of Beyerdynamic DT231's which sound so much better and I have started to use more and more but the Eggo's have such a nice form and tend to be the set chucked into the bag "just in case".  Hope you get yours repaired and can enjoy them for a few more years.

out of curiosity, anyone here know what kind of solder would be best to attempt the repair?  im not even sure what kind of metal the band is made of...
