I've been maintaining the same pair of MDR-V500 headphones for the past 15 years, the plastic swivel broke on each side but it can be easily fixed with a bit of Jbweld type goop.
@neauoire I almost did that for my old pair of ATH-M50. It was time to replace the ear pads and also headband, too, so I decided to go with an all-new pair. It was about 10 years old at the time. Actually, I still have it in a box with some other spare parts...
@neauoire Bonus feature of the new pair is that cable is now also replaceable. (It was fixed in the original ATH-M50 design. There are pros and cons to both, but I think it's mostly a win.)
Revel in the marvels of the universe. We are a collective of forward-thinking individuals who strive to better ourselves and our surroundings through constant creation. We express ourselves through music, art, games, and writing. We also put great value in play. A warm welcome to any like-minded people who feel these ideals resonate with them.
