Basically the question is the thread name.
I asked pretty much the same thing in the Full-Size Headphones section and one guy pretty much directed me to this section. Sorry for the double threads in advance.
Just in case anybody's interested in what happened - My left driver got messed up, sound levels are almost zero. Opened up the headphone and... the left cable housing (not the headphone itself) had some greenish fluid coming from the cables - seems like some of it went inside the driver capsule somehow and messed it up (it is sticky), even though it's pretty well sealed from that side and the driver housing/earpiece itself was clean on the inside, cables are pristine too. At least that's the theory anyways.
I searched through the DIY links resource thread and could not find the drivers (capsule xxl 2606B00050). The only two places where I found it via google were:
-FullCompass - http://www.fullcompass.com/product/356480.html but doesn't ship outside of the US it seems.
-SpectrumAudio - https://www.spectrumaudio.com/akg-2606b00050-1.html
The listings say it's for the 240s, but as far as I can tell, all the 142s/172s/242s/272s use the same drivers, at least according to service manuals and pictures. Correct me if I'm wrong here.
Can anybody give advice whether to go ahead and get it from SpectrumAudio or if there's a better option? I'm more worried about reputation and general quality rather than price, but my options seem to be a bit limited.
As for the other parts - the ear pads are due for replacement but I can't find them anywhere... so I guess the question here is whether the ones for the 141/142 series will match.
Also was thinking about retrofitting an XLR plug to ease cable replacement down the road, but that will have to wait until the rest of the stuff is solved. Please advice on this one as well :)
Thanks in advance!
