Separate names with a comma.
They aren't available directly from Sennheiser?
Just got confirmation that they are
No just the headband padding
On a whim today I decided to clean the cable connections on my HD800 with deoxit, something I haven't done at all since receiving the cans about three years ago. After spraying a little cleaner into both sockets and plugging and unplugging the cable a few times I put the phones on and what an improvement. Improvements in clarity and notably a more punchy and defined bass.
Well worth the effort and something that is probably overlooked by most. A bit annoyed with myself for not doing this sooner as I regularly clean contacts on the rest of my rig.
Great info thanks John. I record live music at concerts and regularly do the same with contacts on the mic/recorder interface but never thought to use on a headphone rig.
Hi Paul, yes a good habit to get into and definitely worth the effort.
Highly recommend gold liquid for cable, daps...
I'll second the recommendation of the nano silver and gold in oil.
But clean the contacts 1st, then use the oil as sparingly as possible.
Thoughts on the DT 1990 Pro vs HD800 for competitive shooter gaming?
My first thought is ... which ever you use, make sure to use a DAC. I use a creative X7 and it made my sound while gaming much better with loudspeakers and headphones (have the HD800S).

I am not sure if the DT1990 has driver separation, seems important to me for gaming.
Just grabed a used pair of HD800's and here to say Hi!
They are in great condition (little pinpoint dented paint on one cup) except for pads and headband padding. I will replace these anyway. Serial is in 10xxx. Anyone care to guess how old this pair may be?
My pair is 40xxx and is under 2 years old so your pair is quite old 2012 perhaps
mine is super old. debating getting a newer one for its allegedly lighter sound
I bought mine around 2010 or 11, the serial number is 078XX and they're still in good condition. They give me no reason to think they will not last another ten years or so.
Hey guys if any one is interested I am selling this....
