I got some new ear-pads off of eBay, they were from China so I got them for only $1.04 after winning the auction, and by the looks of them, the pads look very well made. I also bought a new headband cushion that is really nice compared to the one that was on there. My question is, is there a tutorial somewhere on the site that can show me how to replace the ear-pads on the HD800? If not, if someone would be so kind would you send me some pics with instructions on how to replace the ear-pads? I am even starting to get a lot of static and distortion in the right channel of the HD800, and I have no idea what could be causing it. I used them today, no problems. But just about an hour ago I listened to the HD800 again and there is crackling and distortion. I never listen to music super-loud or anything, so I don't think it is a blown driver, but I cannot be sure. These are by far my favorite headphones and if something happens to them, I doubt I will ever be able to get another pair so I am very concerned what could be causing the distortion and static on the right channel of the HD800. I tested my other headphones with the same setup and they sound great, only the HD800 has this distorted, staticy sound to them in the right channel and I am getting worried, I can't afford to buy a another pair of HD800. If anyone has any ideas on what might be the issue or if anyone has a solution I would sincerely appreciate it!
