Introduction

Use this guide to replace the Beats Solo3 Headband (Model: A1796) if the headband isn’t fitting comfortably when using.

The headband is the main support. It connects both speakers, hoses the connecting wires from the left to the right sides of the head phone, and gives the rigid flex when the headphones are worn over the head.

To use this guide, be sure to have purchased the right part for your headphones at amazon.com. Typically, this device would be replaced, but this is a cost efficient way to bring the device back to live.

Power off the device before fixing to avoid any electrical failures.
