Question about Sony MDR-V150 Professional Headphones

5 Answers

1 phone not working

I've only had my Sony MDR-V150's for about 6 months and have used them sparingly - however, quite annoyingly the phone stopped working in the right ear-piece.

Im just wondering if this is a common problem and fixable? Considering the ear-piece is virtually sealed I don't have much hope that this is possible.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    Ive had mine for about a year. Theive been great but recently the right speakers volume has been either really low or its stopped working altogether. Its pretty ridiculous that theive already stopped working properly after only a year.

Yeah, check the full length of wires really carefully because they break easily and can be torn in a place that you would never even notice.  B

The wire has to be damaged

I realised what the problem with mine was - one of my cats had chewed through the wire with the 'faulty' phone. doh.

My headphones have stopped working. I cannot hear sound from them at all, even though I haven't been using them much. It's model MDR-EX71SL and I bought them less than 9 months ago.

Have you tried them in another audio source. Head phone wires like to break at the strain relief of the main plug. Try moving the cord on the plug side of the phones. If it cuts in and out its time for a new set. Head phone wires are difficult to repair and it may be more trouble then its worth.

Replacement pads for sony headset MDRCD6

Hi Hifi-fans.
The MDR CD6 is still my favorite, since more than 35 years. My feeling was right, I would never find a better headset than this. This was the reason, time ago I bought a second set. You can imagine meanwhile I may have to replace the x-generation of ear-pads. The first ones I ordered for a lot of money at our Sony-HQ in Colone, Germany. Meanwhile I had found a better, more flexible solution. I had checked at our electronic storehouse, which headset from another manufacturer the pads are removable without damaging. I did select the Genius HS-04S ones for the PC and they are really cheap and you may use them without the pads. At the MDR CD6 the pads does not sit much strong, but this not really a lost.
All the years I did not use the second headset, the spare one. Nevetheless the ear-pads were damaged. The covering rubber was harded and broken like old plastik. Just some minutes ago I replaced the pads by the Genius ones.
So far, good luck and I am quite sure you may find the Genius in your country.

Ear pad replacement instructions for Sony MDR-V6 Headphones

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...

Big problem!

Not all Bluetooth are compatible. I've had trouble sending from a Nokia to a Panasonic. "**** is nature's way of saying: high!"
