i blew the right driver in my AKG's.
i feel horribad. contacted AKG spare parts and they informed me it will cost me $26 and some change so ship me a new driver and i install it myself.

so do i buy the new driver of a new headset?

Why'd you have them turned up so LOUD! :O

I would say just buying the driver as long as you feel comfortable replacing it will be a hell of a lot cheaper than anything else you can do at this point. Maybe you have some electronic engineering friends who could do it for you? Possibly a youtube video?

not sure which model you have, but if it'll cost you less than half to fix vs buy new I'd fix. But get both drivers so you can break them in together.

THIS, definitely, no worse way to wear headphones when one side is a loose while the other side is already tightened up. xD

they are AKG K240M 600ohm from late 80's, i got them as a gift.
i love the way the sound for the music i listen to, very little EQ tweaking (if any at all).
i fear replacing the drivers will lose their great sound :/
and i don't have a lot of money to throw around on non essential stuff as well
52bux is almost half my weeks paycheck
so is it worth repairing them or save for something better?
and i will be doing the repair myself i am very skilled with a soldering iron
