Sennheiser HD25-1 voice coil repair suggestions - Page 2

post #16 of 19

Hey pox67, thank you for replying !

 

I don't have the necessary skill for that.. It's good to know that there is indeed insulation on that hair-thin wire, and an explanation of the process. I will search for a skilled solderer I guess :)

The wires are enamel coated so that is why you are probably not getting any sound - the enamel gets melted off when you solder - to solder them I normally place something under them to hold the pieces in place while they are joined and I found some 179 degrees C solder which so far has had 100% success rate. 

Repairs cost £54 http://en-uk.sennheiser.com/service-support-headphone-repair-monitoring but I have just noticed sennheiser have dropped the price of the earcups - they are now £37 GBP in the UK ( we have 3 in stock )

Good to know, thanks !

 

Repairing them on Sennheiser UK would cost me 54 pounds (74 euro) plus shipping both ways equals ~same as buying new

 

118 euros here

.. and 105 here

now, you're probably talking about this

but it doesn't look like the same part ! Am I missing something out ?

hey there,

 

I replied earlier but used external links which I rightfully can't use yet.

 

Thanks for the tip - I guess I'll give it a try. Regarding the earcup, I see a price of 118 euros in juno.co.uk, and 78 pounds (105 euro) in customcable.co.uk. I did notice that earcup on the sennheiser site costing 37 pounds, but I can't confirm if it's the same piece (photo from one side only?). If it is, it's 49 pounds (~70 euros) incl. postage to get a new one, which I guess is fair enough.
