MDR--XB500 Headband and inner cushion peeling and getting everywhere

I have a pair of MDR-XB500's from around late 2012 that are falling apart for no aparent reason. They do not have daily use. Possibly weekly use and they are peeling?!

I also have a MDR-XB500 set and it is also peeling from both the headband and earpads as well, also with minimal use.  Can you please help.

I have the same issue.  The black material gets everywhere, even in my ears! I had to stop using them until I can figure out what to do. Please advise.

Hi, I'm also having this issue.

 

I love these headphones but bits of black stuff keep coming off on my head!

 

Thanks

Mine also started peeling about a month ago and these black pieces really show up on my bald head.

Anyone have any ideas? Are there replacement cushions available?

Re: MDR--XB500 Headband and inner cushion peeling and getting everywhere

Hi,

 

Found this forum after looking around for replacement parts for my MDR XB500's, they are basically disintergraing, I use them on a daily basis and the sweat and heat of Florida has gotton the best of them.  I've had them for years and still sound great, but im looking for Ear cup and Headband replacements for them, has anyone had any luck?

 

Thanks,

metalskin
