Sennheiser HD 560 Ovation II Review - Page 13

post #181 of 192
Just bought a 560 Ovation II that looks to be in great shape. Will post impressions when they arrive.

Pads look a little worn so I may need to replace those. Best place to buy replacement pads for such an old headphone?

Ebay is probably your best bet now. I got mine direct from Sennheiser UK (http://headphonespares.sennheiser.co.uk/hifi-tv-headphones/hd-560-ovation-ii) but it's now Special Order which seems to suggest supply issues unless you don't mind a long wait...

Yea Senn still carries the pads and cable both. I've ordered from the US SENN directly twice now in last few years.

Thanks guys.

Is there an easy way to clean this? The white fabric seems to be glued on so it may not be replaceable.

Before I break something, are the cables removable?

Yea mine had that too , it can be brushed off but it is a pain in the ass. If you buy replacement ear pads it comes with those for replacement too. But just keep at it. I know one thing , you DO NOT want to use them without those white pads, the treble becomes mind numbing without them in place.

I'm buying some official replacement pads so I guess I'll be getting those white pad things too. Do I just rip off the old white cover pads? They seem glued down.

Any ideas?

Mine just pulled off with slight effort. Mine are originally bought 23 yrs ago or more so maybe the glue was barely doing anything , who knows. But it wasn't a big deal removing the white pads. I've actually now I think about it changed two different pairs of pads and white thing because I bought a friend a pair from ebay and had to replace pads too.

 

I'd guess I wait till the replacement comes, make sure they still coming with white pads too and then do what it takes to replace em, PULL PULL PULL with care.

Great, I appreciate the info!

anyone know how to release the front section with driver so as to gain access to behind the driver? it seems the white section stays with the black outer plastic section and it comes off as one? how is that pair released ? apparently they simply pull straight out? seems quite secure in my case and hard to get under....

 

 

anyone?

I made a little custom bent screwdriver to get under the edge and tried to lift it up and out but no success, either there is a trick involved or these are super tight. If I only knew it was a tight issue I could bare down more and try again but don't want to ruin.....

 

i need to get behind the driver to deal with a severe upper mid push./color. I think it can be modded to sound less peaky there if I can get inside!!

I also found the HD560 difficult to open as the fit is very secure. The black metal mesh on the back of the earcup needs to be pushed in in order to unclip the driver assembly. Try pushing on different areas of it. Some parts don't budge at first and you will dent the metal mesh if you're too forceful.
