FIX/MOD Help needed for Sennheiser EH-2200 - Replacing drivers/capsules

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

This is my first post here, I’ve been lurking for a while but thought it’s time to get off my ass. So as any gear-head would do, after my eh2200 broke, I took it apart.

 

I already have a Sony MDR-V6 coming to replace it, but I thought it’s also a good chance to “mod/fix” the old eh2200 enclosure. I think I need some head-fi expertise to get this project going.

 

The wiring and condition of my old EH2200 headband and ear cups are still in good condition so I want to only replace the drivers inside.

The wiring contacts that Sennheiser uses 

 

 

The original EH-2200 drivers (one is broken) - but I'm looking to replace both.

I’m not certain what size they are, but they seem to be 35mm - 40mm in diameter (please check photos). I basically want to swap them out with some other capsules – I’ve been scouring the net/ebay trying to find ones of similar size, but I have no idea which models have the same sized capsules with that same wiring contacts. I'd rather not solder - but I don't mind doing it.

This is how the assembly looks. Driver clips into an enclosure and the enclosure snaps into the main chassis. 

 

I thought maybe I could use this chance and upgrade the drivers as well – replace them with something stronger. Do you guys have any suggestions on what drivers I can replace these with and where I can buy them?

no suggestions?

Going by the pictures... it appears to have 37mm drivers?

Or you can improvise with 40mm drivers of some kind.

Hi phamtasm, 

 

I have the same sennheiser headphones (eh2200), and one of the drivers died. I was searching everywhere, but couldn't find any site that sells these things separately. If you still have them, and they are in a good condition, i might be interested in buying them, because i wouldnt like to throw away the stuff. What do you think?

 

Thanks in advance!
