Question about Sony MDR-CD780 Consumer Headphones

1 Answer

Hello, I am looking to replace the cord for the now discontinued Sony MDR CD780 headphones. The part # is: 179244711 and they are really hard to find. Any ideas how I can replace these? Are they interchangeable with the cords for the new MDR headphones? Can they be repaired? Basically, I pulled mine sideway while it was plugged in once. I still get sound, but only if I pull out the headphones an 1/8th of an inch or so, and even then the sound is not as good as it used to be. Ideas?

Where can i buy ear cups for mdr-if5000


Try eBay and look for "Sony MDR-SA5000", that is SA and will work great as a replacement. You will find many vendors selling replacements for around 8 bucks. The vendors who are selling the exact replacements for the MDR-IF5000 are inferior to the original and cost more ($19.99). The SA replacements look exactly like the original and priced cheaper too, by about 1/3 the cost. They will be shipped from China, so if they offer free shipping could take up to 30 days to receive goods, just a heads up!

Sony mdr-v700dj Headphones needs new cord! The cord was sliced in half in the middle. The headphones are practically brand new. Is there a way to replace the cord?


All you need to do is solder a new plug on to the end of the remains of the cable coming out of the headphones, then buy an extension lead. It will be much easier than replacing the entire lead, as getting into headphones is a very tricky thing to do.

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...

Jack replacement for mdr-v500 headphone


You don't need to look inside the plug... just open up the earcups and test the jack plug with a continuity tester.

But FYI, Red = ring, Green = tip.

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)
