Offset tweezers were a godsend for my fat useless sausages...

 

You got lucky. Whoever the tech was that assembled my set used a prodigious amount of glue where the cross bar is attached at sides so felt didn't fit quite so neatly.  I probably could have dremmeled it clean but didn't think the difference was worth having to mask the driver from dust ...

 

How's the red felt look with grills? :D

 

FYI - for anyone yet to do mod - note that the plastic outer ring comes off with 4? screws and IMHO made it a lot easier to work with.

Is it recommended to leave the thin cloth cover inside the earpads or does one remove it?

post #138 of 148

I have left the thin cloth (in the earpads) to keep hair and dust and whatever out of the headphone.

I would keep the cloth inside the earpad as Lars noted. Consensus seems to be that cloth guard on grill is fairly safe to remove. HFM noted that the original prototype has been going strong for 4 years without one. Of course they probably have great HEPA filtration going in their workshop but ....

Perfect thanks!

 

i did remove the outer cloth [grill side] long ago with no ill effects:o

I broke one of the screws holding the earcup to the headband, does anyone know what this size of screws are called? and maybe where you can get them?

I'm sure you can find something suitably similar at the hardware store for a few cents. You could always take the other screw out and bring it with you to compare.

 I'm living in Sweden and hardware stores here don't normally have screws that are that small, so i most likely have to order online =/

 That's why i asked. thx anyway.

They don't sell them and unless its still under warranty (mine are to old) they wont send replacement =(

So no luck there.

Hifiman offers out-of-warranty repairs/replacements for a price. I think it's worth a shot asking them. I'm not even sure they'd charge anything for a screw.

I did and the reply was that they don't sell them, they would however replace them if the headphones still had warranty.

I'll try asking again maybe i'll get a reply from a different person.

A different representative might help. I once asked to buy a pair of replacement grills and they sent them to me for free.
