SOURCE: 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...

SOURCE: How to Rewire Sony MDR-7506 headphones

Okay, cut and strip the cord. There should be two copper wires and (on Sony headphones, at least) a red and a green strand. On a new 1/8" jack, there should be three connections. The middle one is left, and is where the green one goes. The short one on the side is right, and is where the red one goes. The long bit is the common, and is where the copper one goes. Before you solder, however, remember which strand is which, because you have to sand or burn off the colored enamel. (Use a fine grain paper, or use a standard lighter or stick match- anything else might damage or melt the wire)

Battery failure

I know this is almost a year old, but why can't you access the batteries? How have you been using the headphones without either recharging or simple using regular batteries? The batteries that came with the unit are not proprietary and any pair of AA batteries will work. I haven't used the Sony batteries that came with the headphone for years, won't recharge anymore. I have been using Sanyo eneloop AA rechargeable batteries ever since and keep a fresh pair of batteries recharged at all times. And it seems like they go on for ever, but the time between replacing the batteries is about once a month.

We got new headphones, they light up red but its been three days and they are still red? Any suggestions. No sound.

Locate the battery compartment. Inspect the battery contacts - sometimes the MFR puts plastic covers on them to prevent battery discharge damage after long durations of storage. Remove the plastic. The batteries may need to be charged.

Where can i get a replacement rechargeable battery thanks

You can actually use two regular dry AAA batteries to power these headphones, the only thing is that you will not be able to charge those batteries with the charging station that comes with the headphones.
