The replacement earpads and headbands arrived under two weeks (I live in Singapore). More than one week earlier than the earliest estimate. It was a pleasant surprise. I have first generation and Sony MDR1000 and Sony has ceased product support. But the sound quality, battery life, noise cancelling and bluetooth connection of the headphone still works perfectly fine. It would be a pity to throw it away because of cosmetic defects. I have been struggling with a cracked headband for many years. Wish I had known your website earlier. Your replacement parts are perfect. It is slightly larger than the original, but hopefully, it is also more durable. It took me some time to figure out how to install it, your instruction video is very helpful. It is very nice of you to include the tools as well. I could not find the parts that match the original color, so I bought the black ones. The resultant mismatch in colors actually gave my headphone a nice and unique character. I am very satisfied. It gave my beat-up headphone a new lease of life. The money was truly well spent.
Kinda embarrassing that one guy can make a better part than an OEM He warns that adjusting these can be a bit more difficult, but I like it because it keeps it tight on my head Instructions are also very clear and easy to do yourself, and even though I didn't need it, I appreciate the inclusion of a mini screwdriver and plastic parts separator thing
The replacement parts was good for a few uses, but then it would randomly pop open and I’d have to snap it back into place over and over again. I dismantled it again to check inside and everything seemed to be fine. So now I’m using tape to hold the pieces together.
I can’t rave these enough...phenomenal build quality, excellent customer service and just overall nice people! Thank you so much for all the help!
Do the job ! and the international delivery is much faster than I expect. Point to improve, the handle of the screw driver could be shorter. It is hard to use when fixing the left side of the headset.
