yep it's been recommended before. would definitely give it a try if the midrange dip was an issue for me.

Apply a bit more pressure so the ring turns instead of the pads.
Else simply pull off the pads.

Edited, mobile quoting went wrong.

They can be super tough to remove, which is why pulling the pad off the white ring while it's on the headphone may be the way to go.  Then you can back off the white ring and see how it all works.  Just be careful................

Pulling the pad off is much, much easier, as then you can see the ring, and use something to remove it.

The only problem here will be putting the pads back on. Calling the process nightmarish at first sounds about right. The pad's lip is too small, making it hard to keep the pad on the ring while attaching it.

After you do it a few times it becomes pretty easy.  Probably because I've owned Denon's for two years, four different DX000's and a TH900 but now I can remove any pad without thinking.  Key is getting that white ring moving freely once you get it off the FIRST time.

what's the rush?
post #9657 of 14233
No reasonable answer... Thank you for keeping me in line, my wifey really Thanks you!!
post #9658 of 14233

how do you guys get the white ring to move freely? twisting really didnt help so i decided to remove the pads (hence the white ring still there) but having trouble putting the new ones on.

post #9659 of 14233

Hallelujah the ring is finally off

post #9660 of 14233

Alright finally swapped the pads out. Just figured I was too gentle with my headphones through out the process. Taking the ring out just requires a little leverage and a push! Thank you to everyone who tried to help me with the process. If anybody are interested in how badly your pads can be damaged after about 3 years of wear I can spare a pic for you. =P

 

Disclaime : It's gruesome.
