Question about Sony MDR-V6 Professional Headphones
Hello : Purchased new replacement ear pads for my Sony MDR-V6 headphones but cannot find information/instructions on how to remove old and replace them... any suggestions or advice on how to do so ?
stumped : Randy
Hello to all who have exhausted all avenues seeking instructions on how to remove and replace Ear Pads on Sony MDR-V6 Headphones.... All that is required is a little patience maybe some fingernails... The Pads simply slip on and off by pinching ends of cuff that is nearest the plastic backing of The Headphones by pulling them from their seat/flange .. i found it easiest to just roll the cuff off using my thumb w/rolling motion away from the plastic backing/housing of the headphones.. no tools required.. they are installed exactally like one would place a tire on a rim.. exact same motion is required as when removing a tire.. i can give no better illustruction than comparrison to tire removal and replacement. Be careful to make sure one end in completely set deeply into one side before attempting to pull opposing side over its side/flange..start on top and work way around to bottom or vise versa.. To get an idea of what you are attempting to do take a close look at new headphone pad rear and you will see the small flap of leather on rear .. there is a small overlap that fits perfectly over the flange.. dont try to force it as you may tear them...

Please go to this link and click the play button on the small video window. That is the instruction for MDR-CD900ST but will work for MDR-V6 / 7506.

I have MDR-V300 headphones and stumbled across this page when looking for instructions. The post by rbdjzd helped. I ordered replacement pads from eBay and they didn't come with instructions, but basically you need to pinch the part where the pads wrap around the edge of the phones, and pull them off. They're just held there by an elasticy part attached that can be pulled out. Then just wrap your new pads around the phones and tuck the elastic part in and they should stay there.
