Question about Beyerdynamic DT 531 Consumer Headphones
The thin foam discs -inside- my headphones has disintegrated. Have you any idea were I can order replacements? Beyerdynamic's website is useless for service!
Same issue with mine, unfortunately this is par for the course with petroleum based foams. Fortunately, the headphones themselves are pretty easy to take apart. Slip a small flat screwdriver in the crease between the plastic casing and the black rim that holds the blue/gray velvet ear pad. The entire pad assembly pops right off and then you remove the old foam disc from inside. Once you have them apart, you can replace the foam with more thin foam obtained from ebay or wherever, or some other soft material. FYI, BeyerDynamic's customer service is actually pretty good if you call them on the phone. My cat chewed through my cord a few years ago, I was able to call them up and order an OEM replacement. It cost me about 8 bucks, I was able to solder it up and it worked just fine. MY problem is that the foam padding INSIDE the velvet rings is losing its pliability. I've removed the rings and washed them a couple times (they do get pretty filthy). I will probably make a couple small incisions in the back of the material itself (hidden inside the set itself when together) and restuff with some cotton batting.

I have the same problem with a pair of Fostex Headphones. I have taken them apart and I have removed the rubber type ring that the foam fits over.
I am going to order a cheap pair of thin foam Headphone ear covers from Ebay. (They are available in various sizes) and stick the foam to the ring and follow that
by sticking the ring back in. Should work if the foam is thin enough. What do you think?

Same problem here so I just took my Koss pro 480 headphones apart and covered the whole "ear ****" with a pellon type fabric (interfacing fabric) then snapped it back on with the fabric tucked under the rim. We'll see how well this works for me. With new ones selling for over $80 I hope this works.

I don't think they do replacements for those kinds of things.
If Beyerdynamic wont help with this than I don't see how you are going to get these thin foam wires especially if they are for headphones they will just want you to buy new ones.... I think your only option is to buy a new headphones
