MDR-NC50 noise-cancelling headphones pad/cushion replacement

[ Edited ]



The MDR-NC50 noise-cancelling headphones may be a discontinued model but they are so good and still so solid that I don't want to dump them. The earpads, though... they have definitely seen better years. So:


  1. What current Sony headphones model, currently selling replacement parts, would have a cup the same shape/size the old MDR-NC50?
  2. Or can still buy the actual pads for the NC50, that would also be a solution. Is it a standard size? I wouldn't know who to contact to do so.


Thanks in advance!

Thanks, Joffrey.


I contacted Encompass and this is their reply: "Thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately, the ear pad,2-190-702-02, you are requesting has been discontinued and is no longer available through Encompass. We apologize for any inconvenience Status: Completed"


Thank you, Captain Obvious Smiley Happy Haha. I anticipated it would be discontinued as the headphones are. At least they gave me the part number.


I'm only asking for a list of their currently active user-replaceable pads with their specs/sizes so I can do the guess work. It would help more if we know which one of them matches the NC50. I can try and guess from the photos on your catalog, but I need sizes/specs to find the right size.


Any thoughts? Think you could point me in the right direction? Thank you for your time.
