In the last couple of weeks , we have gathered the most frequent questions we receive from our customers about the installation method of our beats replacement ear pads.
We hope that this post helps out , if there are any questions unanswered , feel free to contact us HERE
Question number 1
- I removed the cushion , but it looks nothing like what you show in the video , what should I do?
If your ear cup looks like the photo underneath after removing the cushion , it means you have only removed the foam part of the cushion.
The plastic base of the ear pad still remains attached to the headphones in this example , and it is EXTREMELY important to remove it before applying the new ear pad.
If you install the ear pad on top of the old plastic base , it will cause a sound distortion and the ear pad will eventually fall off.
How do I remove the plastic base?
Gently shove a butterknife in between that piece of plastic and the headphone ear cup , do that from several angles until the plastic is easily removeable.
Question number 2
- Which cushion is for the right side ?
The right side cushion will be easily recognizeable by its usb port cutout , on all of the beats STUDIO wired / wireless and SOLO versions there is a usb port on the right side ear cup , this cushion was made to accommodate for it.
Question number 3
- The right side ear pad fit perfectly , but the left side seems to have a gap , why is that?
Most likely , you have installed the left side ear pad upside down.
You can still remove the existing cushion gently , while trying to keep most of the adhesive on it , flip it and reinstall it.
To recognize the bottom of the ear pad , look for the seam that connects the leather, as shown in the photo underneath.
