SOURCE: Replacement foam for Beyerdynamic DT 531 Consumer Headphones

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.

LIKE YOU ALL, NO CURE OR REPLACEMENT FOR THE ROTTED PADS. WENT TO HOME DEPOT AND BOUGHT ECONOMY PLUS BRAND AIR CONDITIONER FILTER MATERIAL, ABOUT $3.00, FOR A WALL AC. THEN WENT TO DOLLAR GENERAL AND BOUGHT SCUNCI BRAND BLACK HAIR ELASTICS, EIGHT OF THEM FOR $2.00 TO KEEP PONYTAILS, NOW EAR PADS, IN PLACE. CUT THE AC MATERIAL TO FIT, AND ATTACHED WITH HAIR ELASTICS. ONLY A PURIST WOULD COMPLAIN ABOUT LACK OF COLOR MATCH. THERE WAS A SOLUTION, ONLY A MATTER OF FINDING IT. GOOD LUCK ALL OF YOU.

The ear padding is attached to and held in place by a plastic ring that fits into the speaker mount. Gently pull the ear padding outward so you can see the ring, then slip a flathead screwdriver or other object in (just a bit, you don't want to poke the speaker inside). Gently pry up , sliding your pry-bar along, and the pad should pop out quite easily.

There's something loose in my left cup and it's really obnoxious if I move my head just a little... How do I take apart the headphones to I can fix this and still put them back together?


Most headphones open by removing the earpad and any foam. You should see access screws then. You might have to tear the foam off. You can glue it back with Bostik white glue afterwards.

I find that most headphones have to be opened up by going in through the part that fits to your ear. You might have use force to remove the foam covering, with that gone you should see a few screws.

Product KOSS UR15C headhones. Problem: short in the cable which causes sound cutout when moved. Its right at the connection to the earphone. WHAT I NEED TO KNOW: How to take the earphone apart...


I'm afraid there's is no easy way of doing it, most headphones I have fixed needed force to get the pads of and for that matter to put them back on! It's just a case of taking great care and easing it off a bit at a time. If you encounter any foam that can be glued on afterwards with Bostik solvent free all purpose glue.

I hunted around. No luck. Then I stopped in an found the perfect fit from of all places Radio Shack. The Earpads come with a smaller pair and you have to buy both but they are an excellent replacement. The Radio Shack replacements are #330-0288 - Replacement Headphone Earpads - $6.99 USD.

If you can carefully take the foam earpad off you might find screws holding the speaker plate to the cup.

Replacement foam for Beyerdynamic DT 531 Consumer Headphones


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?

Don't bother, Koss has a lifetime replacement policy on some headphones like the Pro-4's. All you pay is shipping. Call the repair department.
