There are lots of generic (Chinese) replacement ear pads for Sony on ebay or Amazon, you'll just have to take some measurements and try to match what's available. Check the diameter in centimeters, and the shape (round or oval). You may not find a specific listing for MDR-RF960RK but a lot are interchangeable.

SOURCE: Sony batteries BP-HP550

Even though you can use regular AAA batteries (that you would have to replace often), there is a huge convenience factor with using the charging cradle that comes with the Sony headset. A solution I found was that I ordered some 550 mAh AAA batteries through Ebay (they came from England and cost me $8 total for four batteries). To make the charging cradle work with the new batteries in the Sony headset you MUST use the bottom part of the plastic battery holder piece (all you need to do is peel off the BP-HP550-11 label and the bottom half of the plastic battery holder piece slips off of the Sony batteries). Then just slip in the new AAA batteries into the plastic battery holder bottom and then insert into the headset. The reason why you must use the bottom of the battery holder plastic piece is because the plastic piece pushes on a little switch. This switch activates the charging mechanism to enable the cradle charger to charge the batteries.

NOTE: I am not an electronics expert so I do not know if there would be any problem using other rechargeable AAA batteries (with higher mAh ratings). So I decided to be safe than sorry and ordered the 550 mAh batteries through Ebay.

Severe squelch in left ear phone


The design of these headphones includes a microphone on the outside and on the inside of each earcup. The outside microphone detects outside noise. The inside microphone monitors what you are hearing and when it detects that the outside noise is present inside, the active noise-canceling circuits remove that noise. This happens fast enough that you perceive a significant reduction in the outside noise getting to your ears.

The airspace inside the earcup is a tuned chamber defined by the shape of the foam in the ear cushion. This is important because with the inside microphone in close proximity, but at a 90-degree angle to the speaker, the circuit must be designed to eliminate the normal feedback that occurs.

If the foam in the ear cushion has weakened/deteriorated to the point that it no longer has it's original shape, (in particular the lower half of the ear cushion), the size and shape of the air chamber inside of the earcup is directing more of the speaker sound toward the microphone than the design can compensate for causing audio feedback to occur. You are hearing that feedback.

On my QC-3 headphones, I can cause the feedback squeal in both earcups, with the left earcup being more sensitive to the shape change than the right.

It is probably time to replace the ear cushions. If so, they are available from Bose for $35/pair.

How to replace ear cushion on bose QC 3 headphone


The ear cushions are held on the earcup with six snap fasteners, three on each side. To remove the ear cushion, simply pull it away from the earcup carefully so that you do not break the plastic snap tabs.

It should not be necessary to pry the ear cushion off with a sharp object, but if you do, be careful. There is also a thin gasket seal between the earcup and the ear cushion, take care not to damage it.

If you need to replace the ear cushions with new ones, they are available from Bose for $35/pair.

EAR CUSHION


Sony parts suppliers sell replacement ear pads. Part no 2-320-280-01 about US$16 each (not pair).
Old ear pads slip off - pull gently to stretch the part that sits in the groove of the headphones until one side slides out.

The creative sewer can remanufacture new pads from thin soft leather by following the pattern of the old ones.
No cost fix is to scrape off the remaining peeling urethane leaving the soft fabric backing. Headphones will still work but the soft earpads should absorb high frequencies.

Please follow the proper instructions below

Ear cushion reattachment
If the ear cushions come off your headphones,
reattach them as follows:
1. Fit the mounting flange inside the rim of the ear cup.
2. Make sure it attaches smoothly and uniformly within the entire ear cup. (Do not remove the ear cup lining material).

Ear cushions may need to be replaced due to normal wear and tear. To order replacement ear cushions, call 1-888-865-2700.
