    I did open them, but I did not find anything.  I was concerned about doing it myself for 2 reasons.  The first being that the plastic clamps holding the driver in place are very tight, and I am very worried that I would break the clamp trying to remove the original driver.  The second reason is that Sennheisers come with matching drivers, and replacing one would negate that.  I could just replace both, but I couldn't be sure that both drivers would be matching.  Maybe I'll just give Sennheiser a call tomorrow and see what solutions they give.  Thank you for your responce.

    I managed to remove the driver and it looked like wire between the spring and voice coil has a snag.  It looked like a small bead of water was stuck to the wire, but I very carefully prodded at it and it is part of the wire.

    Think your idea to contact Sennheiser is the way to go and since you have the driver out you can describe the issue to them.

    Just get the new driver (or both). Replace in 5 minutes... Contact Sennheiser support for the parts.

    +1. Last I checked, I believe Sennheiser is asking for somewhere around $80 for a new HD600 driver while replacement HD650 drivers are like $50. I guess you can see which one the Sennheiser guys like better too [​IMG]

    Last I checked HD-650 driver $136/pair, HD-600 $112/pair, this was a few months ago.

    My check was like at least a year and a half ago lol [​IMG]. So it they're charging more again for the HD650 drivers now huh? For a while they charged more for the HD600 drivers than the HD650s.

    Most websites list the HD650 capsule as cheaper than the HD600 - including Sennheiser.  I just checked Aussie official Sennheiser site, and the HD600 capsule is more expensive.

    As far as I know - this is true world-wide. I replaced with genuine HD600 last time I had a driver fault.  Next time, I may just buy the cheaper HD650 drivers.

    Do you have a link for the US site?

    Can't find the hD650 capsule on the same site.
     
    Here's an example from UK though:

    The HD650 capsule is almost always cheaper.

    Thanks, was thinking of doing some non-reversible mods so wanted to find source for replacement.
     
  12. Midgetguy
    Always good to have the backup plan ready.

    Could someone please tell me where I can get replacements for those lower halves of the belts or do they come in the 'Headband complete' package?

    Does all this mean a typical HD600 only has a few years lifespan, or are those guys the unlucky ones? I would've thought after 20 years that Sennheiser would have ironed out any Q.C. issues involving the HD600 by now. Not a cheap headphone the HD600, so i'm hoping mine doesn't develop any faults any time soon after reading all this. Has anyone here had an HD600 last more than 7 years without missing a beat? Would be interesting to find out.
