Trying my best to find a replacement for the expired driver unit in my MDR R10.
 
Whether it is a pair of R10 with only one working driver unit or a spare driver unit that you would consider selling, please don't hesitate to contact me!!

just my 2 cent. It doesn't really work that way. Each driver is tuned differently and with drivers from two different pairs, even if the serial numbers were consecutive two, the tonal difference would be pretty significant. Pairing is of most importance. You can try, but it most likley won't sound right.

I second that as there are 4 drivers versions on the R10.  Good lucks however.

Thank you for your info! I believe you that even if I repair my R10 this way it would not sound as good as it was, but I still want to give it a try!

I've contacted Sony America and Sony Japan, and apparently they absolutely have no drivers left. The only things they have are the engineering models which don't have serial numbers on the headbands, but those are only distributed to people whose R10's were damaged by Sony engineers during maintenance.

I got one of those "engineering models".  Good lucks man...really.  What driver number number do you need again?
