Plus, be careful because of the magnet in the speaker. You need to hold back the screws when they are unscrewed. Otherwise they might damage the membrane.

Mooie handleiding, dank je!

Hebben jullie echter ook een url voor het bestellen van een vervangende speaker voor een Solo?

Great manual, thanks.

Do you also have a url to order a replacement Solo speaker?

Thxs,

  • If you need to repair the left speaker, there may be an additional step you need to take to replace the speakers. This takes the audio jack into account.

Hello. I also have 1 damaged Monster Beats Solo. It was bought in 2013. The right speaker does not working properly - it sounds softer (opposite of lourder) than the left speaker and whenever I move, I can feel the sound of something loose inside the right ear cup/speaker. I already found some sellers selling the replacement speakers on ebay. Before buying the replacement parts, I decided to open the ear cup myself to check whether it is easy to open or not. However, so far I am unable to open it. I avoind using too much force because it is afraid that I might break the headphone.

According to some websites, the twist counter clockwise removal of the headphone pad is indicative of a fake beats solo HD, the genuine ones have fixed pads apparently. I can't guarantee this, but I do have a set of solo HDs with a faulty speaker and I can't easily remove the pad either
