I have owned these since they were first released. I haven't used them in awhile. I opened the case and seen the Pleather deteriorating. I replaced the Earpads was easy to do but the head band and elastic band pleather is bad as well. I was able to cut the thread on the top head band and remove that pleather. I was hoping someone here know a place I can send this out to and have the pleather replaced with real leather or something that will not go bad as far as I know the drivers are mint. I was going to order some leather or pleather and try to do it myself but the elastic head band in the middle looks like it is attached with what feeks like a small bar which the elastic band loops through then was inserted into the pleather band. I guess a leather shop like a shoe repair could copy that band. But I am really stumped on how to sew the top portion together. At least the Foam underneath is still like new.
Should I just sell them? are they worth selling and pick up the new MDR-7520.
