    • Q:

      Replacement ear pads

      From where can I order replacement ear pads for my ATH-A900s? The outer surface has been flaking away, as I guess is pretty common with this model. I cannot find any information on this site, and my searches so far have only turned up a few eBay sellers charging very high prices.

    • Q:

      Is it normal to experience shocks at my ear when the cord touches the carpet?

      I received a set of ATH-A900 headphones as a present. They sound great, but My right ear was shocked when the cord touched the carpet. Is this a correctable problem?

        From time to time we hear complaints about electrostatic discharge with headphones. The problem tends to be environmental in nature and is a function of the temperature, humidity, clothing and other environmental conditions that can induce a high, sudden, electrostatic charge on your body and create an electrical voltage difference between whatever the headphones are plugged into and your body. The rapid electrostatic charge creates a voltage difference with the headphones that are usually grounded through your audio equipment, and your body. The discharge will normally occur from your body through the headphones to your equipment.

        Below is an experience that was shared with me from our service manager

        “My personal experience was with ear buds. I yanked a rug off the linoleum tile in the bathroom during the winter while listening to my I Pod. The result was a loud pop in the ear buds. I actually was shocked in my ear canal because the ear buds were not grounded and the discharge occurred from my body to the I Pod system (that the ear buds were a part of). The I Pod system was at a lower voltage potential than my body after I rapidly lifted the carpet generating a high electrostatic charge on my body. “

        My recommendation is not to do any sudden movements that will generate static electricity and to remove anything that can act as an electrostatic generator. It is not a headphone issue as much as a problem in generating an electrostatic charge on your body and then the static charge on your body looking to discharge itself. Plastic roller mats are also a great way to generate static electricity. Avoid any condition that will create electrostatic discharge while you are using headphones or ear buds.

    • Q:

      Construction of Hinge Mechanisms

      How are the hinges constructed? The mechanism that joins the ear-pieces to the headband? Are they made out of plastic or metal?

      What is the manufacturer's warranty on these mechanisms?
