Cool Help!! Headphone head cushion started peeling!

Hey guys,

Do u have the same problem as me? My shure headphones head cushions started to peel.
I don't think they have replacement as couldn't find in their website.
How you guys solve the problem?
Currently I use wire tape to stop peeling but kinda ugly.
Was thinking to get carbon sticker to paste the whole band but covered the shure words. I but that is my last options. (anw where u guys get the carbon sticker?)

Hope to listen to all the ideas to solve it.

Thanks in advance.
Adin =)

Me too me too~

Been a while. One of the staff suggested custom leather wrapping, which I seriously might consider doing, but need to find someone who can do with skill and take good care of our cans.

Do share here what shure says about this lehz, thanks!!

hi ts just to share with you what i did for my denon d1001, and it's free too. the headband also started peeling off and i could not find any replacement for it. i managed to dismantle the headband, not really sure if yours can do the same but here goes:

dismantling the headband


red cloth that i used


wrapping it over the sponge and setting it with needles


edges trimmed and sewn in


completed

Thanks, I've only removed the leather that is covering the sponge and used the cloth to wrap over it.

For shure they told me if my unit not under warranty is can trade in and pay 220 more to get a new pair as there is no replacement. Which is crazy. I do have warranty but not sure will they take in to change a new set for me. So will be going down some day when I am free.

Interesting, not a cheap price to pay, if they can trade in and upgrade, i will consider though...
