Denon ah-1001 recovery

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I have had my Denon ah-1001 since 2009. That's nearly 5 years now. I haven't been bothered to upgrade and although I'm thinking about it and read countless reviews I still can't decide what I'm going to get so in the meantime I am looking for suggestions as to what to do with my Denons' as they are falling apart but still working.

 

So the problem is the headband is falling apart which I have taped up to hold together and the earpads are beginning to fall apart too. The drivers and cable are perfect working order.

 

Is there anyway I could take the drivers out and rehouse them in another headband, one I could buy or make myself for example ?   ( overly ambitious?? ) 

Anyone know where I can get replacement earpads and even into the bargain improve isolation somehow buy using an non-denon pair?

 

I prolly will eventually buy a v-moda m-80 / m-100 or sennheiser amperior when I have the cash but I would still like to keep and refurbish my Denon's if I can.

 

Thanks for any usefull suggestions.

D1001 use the same driver as the first Creative Aurvana Live, and they even have sameish housing (not exactly the same), so maybe that.

Yeah the only problem with that is I need to find say on ebay an aurvana live with faulty drivers but in-good-nick headband and don't think there is a high chance of finding that - unless someone on here has one !

I have a pair of Denon ah-1001 headphones since 2009. They are pretty wrecked now but I love the sound and wish to repair them. I need new earpads and a new headband. I would like to mod the D510 or the D310 with my d1001 driver but I'm not sure if it would work as I don't know if the dimensions are the same on both units. Would anyone have a clue ? Thanks.

The D310 and D1001 seem to share the same driver/baffle assembly, but this is judging from briefly looking at disassembly pictures via a Google image search, so don't quote me.

These look nice.

 

Seems cheaper to buy the D510 to me, but depends on what you're trying to do.

Yeah thanks for the link. Your right the replacement pads are a bit pricey but that's the first time I've seen them available anywhere. Anyhow I intend to use the earpads from a used D510 and put then on mine then take the cups off my headband and put then on the D510 : )  Thant's the plan anyway.
