Sony MDR-7506 headphones new ear pads

Resurrecting my Sony MDR-7506 headphones with new ear pads. I don’t have a photo of their condition before removal, but they were shot … All the vinyl was missing and we were down to exposed cloth-like stuff … Once I removed the old pads, here’s what the headphones looked like.

Pads removed

… and then the new pads …

Pads replaced

These headphones have been going since I borrowed a pair from Dave Landry. They impressed immediately and I didn’t let them go. Unfortunately, Dave wanted them back, so I went and bought my own pair. This was Christmas 1999.

They’ve been through hell and still sound excellent so that’s why I use them for all tracking in the studio.

I got the replacements from Sweetwater.Com … Another thing I should not have put off …

  1. Hey man, I had these handed down from my father and even if it wasn’t one of the last few possessions he shared after he passed, I’d still buy the new ear pads.
