🛠 The tools and parts that you will need for this repair:
1. Remove the Old Ear Pads
The ear pads are held in place by magnets, no glue or locking clips so they will come off quite easily if you pull them away from the headphones.
2. Install the New Ear Pads
When installing the new ear pads, you can make sure that each ear pad ends up on the right side by referencing the small "R" and "L" inside of the headphones as well as the "R" and "L" inside of the ear pad.
Lay each ear pad down onto its respective side with the "R" and "L" facing right side up to ensure that the head detection sensors are lined up with their window in each ear pad. The magnets in the ear pads will automatically line up with the headphones and pull the ear pad into its place.
3. Get back to enjoying your headphones 🤓
