Removing outer plastic/grill on DT990 Premium 600 Ohm Headphones

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Sorry if I'm missing something here guys. This is my first post (although I've read other person posts for about 1 year now).

 

Hopefully someone has done what I'm trying to do here, and can help me out.

 

I bought about 8 months ago a pair of the beyerdynamic DT990 Premium 600 Ohms, and recently I found a small dent on the outer right hand side can. Around the silver round area that surrounds the open grill. I would like to take this particular piece apart to see if I can somehow straighten the plastic out, but I don't know how to get to it.

 

I saw a forum that explains how to get to the drivers, which I did successfully, but from here I'm too afraid to keep digging since I don't want to cause further damage to the cans.

 

Sound wise the headphones are still in excellent conditions. No flaws to the sound (and actually they are so comfortable that they are by default my favorite pair of headphones - I find them even more comfortable than the HD800 that I have), but I would like to fix the small dent, which aesthetically speaking... bother me.

 

How did it happen? No clue honestly. I don't remember dropping the headphones at all since I purchase them, so either they were all along like that (and because of the silver paint you have to really take a look at it closely to notice the small indentation) when I purchased them second hand, or some of my roommates were playing with them while I was at work and there's no way to prove either at this point so no point figuring really how it happened, but I would certainly like it fixed if possible.

 

If someone has come around a set of instructions on how to totally strip down the cans (and not just up to the drivers), or would be nice enough to give me some tips, I would really appreciate the help.
