did you have to play that retarded music 

netsendjoe says:

Hi again. Does anyone know how to thread new wiring through the headband
without breaking the thin plastic pieces that are on both sides? I could
really use more info for that.

netsendjoe says:

Replacing the original wiring because the left speaker was going on and off
due to loose connection from fraying at the corded base. Any advice on
passing through two thin wires through the headband to the right side?
A slight mod I’m trying later will integrate a 3.5mm stereo plug on the
left side so I can easily replace the cord when defective. Was not happy
with original wiring connectivity. The cheap wire has plastic threads in it
making it hard to make simple twisted connections, Better quality wires
should improve durability and maybe sound (though that was perfect when
new).

Arif Mitha says:

First off, awesome freakin video, this was amazing help. Second, i have 2
pairs of these headphones pboth of which have the exact same problem, the
headphone jack is unstable and cuts out, i need to change it and now thanks
to your video i can but i do not know where i can but a replacement cable,
can you tell me where?

Michele Guido says:

Hey, I have these headphones and 3 years after this video I’m finally
getting around to figure out how to fix all the leather peeling off. But
I’m afraid to pull off the first spongey part from the earpiece because it
feels like i’m ripping it, how did yours come off so easily? helllp 

Jason Rhys-Thomas says:

@djtitoluv Yep a lot of people get that but I know PRO DJs who have had
them for 7 years or so I suppose it is how you look after them. The
HDJ-1000 have the same problem but the HDJ-2000 and HD25-1 are pretty
bulletproof

Arun Bhola says:

@allinonethegreat I agree with you. My second pair of these broke last
night. Wish Sony would use a better plastic. Anyway, tonight I will use the
tips from this video with a bit of superglue and hopefully the combination
will work and save me $130.

djduracell8 says:

@selearemus i have the same problem 🙁

phodder says:

@ruaridh I’ve the same problem.

MadCowTv says:

BOOOOOOO!!!! What if you need to change the wire in the headband.Mine is
broke and i have to change it without destoying it.

Arturo Monterrosas says:

I need help, my headphones are broken from the foldable part and this video
almost helped…

Jason Rhys-Thomas says:

@DJJENKO Hi There, Firstly I would recommend not posting in all capitals as
it makes you come across as a bit shouty and probably makes people less
inclined to help you. The easiest what to tell if you have real or fake is
to remove one of the earpads. The real ones have a disk of foam underneath
covering the center of the driver ( check the start of the vid to see how
it should look ) the fake ones have no foam disc under the pad

phattvids says:

Shit,mine are made in Japan : )

Jason Rhys-Thomas says:

I respray them for DJs…. But I know what you mean – It still feels weird
opening a box fresh pair of expensive headphones and then preceding to pull
the apart and sand them down

Gavin Boyle says:

Track list man… PLLLEEEEAAAASSSSEEEE???

Becca Lavoie says:

It is the same processing for all the same type of Headphones ?

Pongo1320 says:

Yea I know bringing this thread back from the dead ~ mine say made in Japan.

Jason Rhys-Thomas says:

@DFer96111 The sonys are good value for money and block out more noise. The
beats look the nuts but are a little over priced for their performance. If
you are looking to spend beats money and are not bothered about looks check
out the Sennheiser HD25-1 or aiaiai tma-1 which are both great and v-strong

labobo says:

@thpeed May be so bold and request a dismantle video of the SteelSeries 7H ?

allinonethegreat says:

Fuck these headphone !!! They sound good as fuck but they will break on you
everytime. Approximately within a year. I bought these shits 3 times now.
$100 each and Sony ain’t shit. To repair they are charging you $80. Are you
serious ? It always starts out with a minor crack on the earpiece and then
develops into a huge crack that can’t get fixed. I AM DONE WITH THESE AND
NEVER BUYING THEM AGAIN. I will have to find something else now.

Jason Rhys-Thomas says:

Tru-dat 🙂 as long as you don’t over stretch the hinges the real ones last
many years. I have just had a pair in to get resprayed that was so old the
head pad had almost disintegrated and the hinges had not cracks at all.

ruaridh says:

hey ive taken my pair apart after they broke, ive repaired a couple of
small cracks in the plastic, but the cable running from the L to the R has
been getting worn away from the swivels and its chewed partially through
it, can anyone tell me where i can find replacement cable, i tried using
some from a shitty pair of headphones but the cable is too thick to fit
through all the parts of the headband, anyone out there know where to get
thin cable? single core with earth?

ficacci says:

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO…!!!

wlitz says:

great video, where can i see more of the customized ones? hola…

DJJENKO says:

@thpeed hi thanks for that. well good news is mine are like the ones in
this video of yours 🙂 the bad news is your video is nealry 2 years old so
there is a chance the fake ones now come with a padded disc. i have noticed
the fake ones getting better and better with time just by viewing videos on
here and seeing what people write for eg the green rings around the jack
plugs was once a way of telling but then the fakes came with green rings.
the people at the fake factory probably use you tube

mycamguy says:

Nice beat. What kind of paint do you use on the headphones?

Facundo Nahuel Ignacio Lamas says:

Thanks men you give me a god idea!

erik l.s says:

EASY

Helgen Cali says:

I have the originals, and I have the fakes, I bought the originals 3 times
in a row, and none of them lasted me a year at most and I never over
stretched, never folded them and never did intense neck bumping or anything
that would allow them to become worn down other than home studio use,
whereas my fakes have just about 1db lower bass, but they never messed up
on me. Sony is losing their flare.

pinoyplaya102 says:

so with this, can you replace the 3.5mm cord? Mine is all janky, i have to
play with the cord to get the sound to come in both ears.

butterfinqersnkiDd says:

everybody complaining about these breaking or sounding like crap need to
stop buying the fakes. i’ve had the authentics and they’ve lasted 5 yrs or
more without any problems. that’s why these have been around for yrs and
not discontinued.

butterfinqersnkiDd says:

easiest way, the real ones say Thailand on an earband and fakes say China

a19vuu says:

@pageygeeza 1st is DJ Touche – The Paddle

Jason Rhys-Thomas says:

The Sonys as they block out a lot of noise and with the swivel hinges they
can be warn in any position but they are not the most durable is you drop
them alot. The beats are OK for street use but if you are looking to spend
that kind of money I would take a look at the Pioneer HDJ-2000 and
sennheiser HD25-1 as they sound better and will last longer

SwayLocks says:

im scared if i do this i ll end up breaking it -___-

Dj Kerato says:

just so everyone know beats by dr.dre requires batteries so after a year
turned from 350 dollar headphones to 400 and so on just a heads up.

Renato Meneghello says:

TKS!

Arturo Monterrosas says:

I have these headphones

mycamguy says:

@thpeed Thanks! : D

soul4tran says:

Wow, thanks for posting this!!!!!

gordonjohn says:

Ive had a pair since around 2001 i think it was when i bought em. Never had
a problem with them. The only thing that isn’t quite the same is the
leather has cracked a bit with age, so no big deal. So 10 years on and they
still kick ass to this day!

Jason Rhys-Thomas says:

@mycamguy Hi There, When I started out I used enamel ( like humbrol ) as it
is cheap enough, easy to get hold of , designed to work on plastics and
most of all tough. Now I am using Auto-Bourne custom car paints and a
specially formulated clearcoat. But I would stick to the enamel as it does
a good job just takes a long time to dry

Jason Rhys-Thomas says:

@bucplayer6 Pulling the headband apart is v-tricky and not recommended as
you have to dismantle the swivel hinges and the whole headband to get the
cable out. Which in is self is not too hard but getting it back together is
a nightmare. If you email me I can sell you a new headband on the cheep (
use the email address on the customcans.co.uk )

Shaker Zen says:

Thanks for posting! I think I have a fake pair : my originals lasted me 9
years and they STILL sound incredible. So I will take out the original
speakers and put them into the new casing : thank God the earpiece
diameters are the same. Can’t say I’m too surprised at the copies… These
‘phones are the very best I have ever had! Thanks again…

bluenessaja says:

@ruaridh i just discovered the same problem with mine, did u sort it?

DJJENKO says:

@DJJENKO ps thanks for your help and great video.sorry about the caps lock
thing lol

bigdorkification says:

….or they just use the real things and copy them?

DJJENKO says:

MINE CAME TODAY FROM AMAZON CAN SOMEONE (AN EXPERT) PLEASE TELL ME WHATS
FAKE AND WHAT IS REAL???? IVE WATCHED TOO MANY VIDS NOW ON BOTH AND THEY
ALL CONTRADICT EACH OTHER AND MY HEAD IS GONNA EXPLODE. MINE LOOK AS REAL
AS THEY COME BUT IM HEARING IF THEY DONT HAVE CE ON THEM IF THE PLATES FEEL
PLASTIC ETC ETC THE SOUND ON THEM IS REALLY GOOD. SO IF SOMEONE COULD
PLEASE JUST TELL ME WHAT STANDS OUT TO PROVE THEY ARE FAKE OR NOT. I WAS
HOPING THEY WERE REAL AS THEY WERE FROM AMAZON THEMSELVES THX
