So if you got the replacement ear pads now and you’re looking into how you can wear it to your Sony MDR 7506 Ear Pads, let us show you how it’s done.

Step 1: Remove The Old Ear Pads 

The first step is to smoothly remove the old ear pads.
While Sony MDR 7506 headphones showcase durability, every owner wants their device to last a lifetime. You can achieve this with proper care and use.

Simply hold the ear pad between the thumb and the rest of your fingers while your other hand carries the headphone for support.

Gently pull out of its socket. Do the same to the other ear pad.

Step 2: Insert Backside Lip In Top Slot 

Now, grab your Sony MDR 7506 replacement pads and let's start to install them.

These ear pads are identical so you won’t need to look for a tag indicating which ear pad should go to the left and right.

Moreover, the Sony MDR 7506 ear cushions, like other pads in our collection are installed by inserting the backside of the ear pad to the socket around the headphone cup.

Start inserting the backside lip of the ear pad into the socket at the top part of your headphone cup.

Step 3: Stretch Out The Rest Of The Backside Lip Into The Slot 

Once you covered the top part, hold the pad in place with your other finger.

Stretch out the rest of the backside lip into the rest of the socket.

Step 4: Twist The Ear Pad To Secure the Lip

When you are done wearing the ear pad into the socket, twist the ear pad left and right to make the backside lip fit better into the socket.

The ear pad should stay in place and no part of the ear pad should stay folded or hanging. Otherwise, you need to continue making sure that the backside lip is inserted.

Step 5: Repeat Steps 1-4 

Now, repeat the same process on the other side. Check again to make sure it’s a seamless operation.

After installing the ear pads on both sides, wear the headphones to test how the pads feel against your ears. Are they wickedly good?

That is it! You have successfully replaced your Sony MDR 7506 ear pads.
