Introduction

Removing the ear cushion is an important first step to accessing the speaker housing. Unless you are only replacing the headband, You MUST remove the ear cushions to access the other components.

  1. Pinch the ear cushion between your thumb and forefinger. Be very careful when pulling off the ear cushion, as the material holding the cushion onto the plastic ring can rip easily. Carefully pull the cushion directly away from the earpiece.

    • Carefully pull the cushion directly away from the earpiece.

    • The cushion will have a thin piece of foam inside of it that may fall out upon removal. Make sure to save this for reassembly.

    • Repeat for the other ear cushion.

  2. Use the plastic opening tool to remove the black ring from the speaker. This will allow you to access the screws on the metal ring. Congratulations, you now have access to the rest of the speaker! For reassembly, the black ring cannot snap back into the speaker the way it was disassembled.  It must first go inside the black lip of the ear   cushion. The black lip is located on the back side of the ear cushion. Please refer to the last two pictures on this step.

    I bought the parts two (2) ear cushions and a head band replacement on eBay for about $10 USD

    the process described here works well if the ear pad is old and you do not mind destroying the old one to gain access - however you will destroy the ear cushion pad assembly to separate it from the headphones - so be prepared to buy replacement cushion assemblies - when you disassemble you cannot re-install the original cushions

    the disassembly process tears the plastic cover that goes around the ear cushion plastic ring

De nada me sirve saber cómo colocarlos si no sé donde conseguirlos... Ese debería ser el paso 1 del instructivo...
