*rage*
I just accidentally canceled my post.
Why is that button even there?!?!

  If I wanted to navigate away, I would.  I don't need a button to do it for me.

*sigh*
Now I've got to type it all over again

sorry for the rant....
 
 
Anyways...
 
I picked up my DT-990 used here a couple years back.
They were my first serious cans, and still remain my favorite.
 
However, they are starting to feel their age.

The pads are a bit worn and in need of replacement.
There's also a slight buzz from the left driver when producing some bass.
 
 
 
I'm hoping you guys can help me with:
 
  • Suggesting me some options for replacement pads.
    My preference is to stay away from leather pads, I've already tried them and don't like it.
    The DT-990 is already very warm, and leather pads just skew it too far.
     
  • A guide to getting the left driver housing open and fixing that annoying buzz.
    I could poke at it and hope not to wreck it, but you guys probably have some "pro" guide to doing it.
     
  • Any other suggestions on what to with my DT-990.
 
I'm leaving the fate of my favorite cans in your hands.
 
thanks guys! (and happy listening

Sounds like you may have a hair in the driver. Here is a thread that may help you. http://www.head-fi.org/forum/thread/218922/dt990-rattling-calling-beyer-experts
 
Hopefully you can save it. It didn't work in my case as the hair was in the diaphragm and couldn't be removed so I'm looking for a new driver atm.
