My sister had left me her AKG K451s to repair, they were in shambles.
The cable must have broken on one of the swivels, not snapped but enough to not reach the left driver anymore. I was not able to repair it and would not have been able to pull a new through, so instead I used the left over 3,5 connector from modding my DT880 600 ohms to make these balanced too.
That worked (if you don’t look too closely) but now I also need replacement pads. Hers are literally falling apart. Issue is the replacements I am finding on amazon are all faux leather…I HATE that stuff.
I don’t suppose anybody here could recommend a pair that is either actual leather or some sort of textile? Might as well replace the head band while I am at it.
