Not the ear pad ;) But the pad (or whatever you call it where you terminate the cables on to the driver has lifted on my SA5000s).
I only recently re-cabled these headphones with an old HD600 cable. Well, I feel asleep with them on to wake up a few hours later...with sound only coming out of the left channel. Great...so I resolder them etc...screw the housing back together...still doesn't work. I tried a continuinity test and all appears fine. Could not understand. After the third or so time of resoldering...the pad lifted and ended up being stuck to the cable :(
See pics -
Is this repairable at all? Whilst I'd like to blame the higher temps needed in lead-free solder world (UK)...it probably half is my dodgy soldering skills :/
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
