    Hey 'fies! it's been a long time. I've been working hard but never forgot my biggest love: good sound. AKA- my K701.
    Problem is, my K701 which I've got nearly 2009 got broken a bit. just physiclly. i'll spare my words for a proper pictures:

    As you can see, the 'phones band is good being called finished... no way to fix the band itself. 
    it seems like I'll have to replace the entire band. problem is - I have no idea how, how much and where from.
    I'm sure you guys can help me. where can I get a new band for it, how many should it cost and how do I "install" it on my K701?

    Btw, i've been thinking of a new earpads too. but if so, I'd like to get the Q701 pads (black ones) - any way to get it?

    Thanks!

    I think it's best to contact AKG and ask for spare parts, since you need new earpads anyway. Looks like you just need new headband clips. This just isn't as straightforward as Sennheiser who has a list of spare parts in their website that you can order direct from them (at least last I checked AKG didn't, they might have one now), but they probably have spares. The great thing is that Q701 clips might fit too, and that has a white version.
