The following "warranty card" is valid for Japanese market only.
This product does not have warranty abroad.

So desu ne.

Anyone has the precise fuse reference ? would a 5x20mm fuse with 1.5A/125v fast blow be the one to choose ? knowing that the orginal one is smaller.


The fuse in my picture is an Eaton-Bussmann BK/GMA 1.5R 250V 1.5A Fast Blow 5mmx20mm

Problem is:
The fuse blew because?
Of what?

One thing about replacing a fuse, if the fuse blows again, sometimes you can create even more damage.

Well......the good news is that I got the real leather earpads on.


The bad news is that I really f-ed up putting on the pads on the left side because I had forgotten that you can remove the earcup from the headband assembly and that would have made the process over 9000% easier, and I probably wouldn't have screwed up putting the adhesive on.

: (


Moral of the story, wait for my YouTube video and DO NOT follow what I do in the middle of it.

Changing the headpad for Lambda is about the messiest thing you can do. The black sticky goo they called adhesive is stuff made for nightmare.....

Many thanks this is what I guessed, I found out what the orginal fuse is, it is a Japanese NSF ECR fuse, 1.5A 125V 4.6x16mm . Already ordered a new PSU and 250V1.5A 5x20mm fuses and a fuseholder.

Is it Ok to cut off the pigtails close to the fuse but keep the existing pigtails in place and then Solder the fuseholder on the pigtails of the blown fuse.I really want to avoid to solder on the PCB itself....

Some people seem to experience fuse problems when ordering online from Japan. Can fuses simply break for mechanical reasons during shipping? For me it's just the wire inside the fuse that was disrupted..

Yes, it's possible.
I've seen it happen.
