My Aliexpress speakers showed up today. Not putting out the sound I was looking for at all :/ Now I just have a bad sounding set of headphones that look like a pair of boobs on my head.

At least that first set has what I want:

Also while I was looking for a rustic black framed glass case for some hazardous additions to my rock collection I found a matching set of backup drivers for those headphones for the same price as before. But these are in better shape. Also found the display case.

A few months ago, I managed to score a SVS SB-2000 which allowed me to move my PB-1000 downstairs where I later found it a twin companion off Craigslist for $150. I took off work early to make sure no one else bought it. :-p Now, there is a Black Friday sale for the PB-12ND and I am so freaking tempted!

Hey guys. Hope everyone is doing okay. I have a small issue with the k702 I purchased 6 months back. The elastic band that holds the weight of the cans , from the use has been stretched . Is there any fix / repair I can do to avoid sending the whole headphone for RMA ?

Edit: I have talked with thomann.de where I purchased them from . And the RMA should take about one whole month.

I've seen people add their own elastic, which fixes the issue, but iirc you can't really repair it as the plastic is welded shut.

At least you're offered an RMA, Massdrop basically told be the stretched elastic/broken guides are a wear issue which they don't cover under warranty, and shove them where the sun don't shine.

Might just pick up the fidelio X2HR's that are on sale on amazon atm, as my K7XX's are becoming less and less comfortable.

I was thinking of replacing the elastic band , with a fix-length non elastic string. So it always stays on the position I find comfortable wearing them. I am not willing to send the cans every 6 months for a 30 day RMA due to a faulty design of the headband. It seems this is so common on these headphones it's almost guaranteed I will have the same problem again. I use them as daily driver and use them more than 5-6 hours a day so that might lead to even faster wearing down than average. I would rather mod them myself and end this story once and for all even if that might lead to warranty void.

PS: I don't even have any other headphones for the one month RMA period. This is a pain in the arse.

Ps2: I was also thinking of grabbing a second pair for Christmas present to myself :3 im also considering X2HR or HE4XX

I've also seen some people replace this terribly designed headband all together with a fixed height one, which looks easy enough.

This looks very interesting . A couple of mods i have seen dont go all the way to remove the whole headband , so because the top part where the elastic band is attached is glued , they end up with a pretty ugly ( working nonetheless ) result. Thanks for the idea !

Anybody know of any mods for the Senn 650? I was just thinking the headband could be improved as even the cheapie models have the nice cushy band. Really I am just bored and want something to mod.

Searching the interwebs didn't bring up a whole lot. Did find this but it doesn't look to be much of a difference from the stock setup.

The 4 pads is the original pad design from the older headphones, I actually prefer those to the newer 2 pad model.
