It can be frustrating when expensive, name brand headphones break. For Beats, especially older models, headband snapping or detaching is a common problem. Instead of buying entirely new headphones or resorting to duct tape, replacing the headband can be a good way to return them to a usable condition.

In this guide, we repair a pair of Beats Solo HD Red: Special Edition (129472-00) headphones, but the instructions can be used for Beats Solo HD headphones of any color.

When repairing your Beats, be conscious of the single white wire connecting the ear pieces to the headband. Damaging this wire can lower sound quality or break the headphones entirely, so gentle handling is key.

결론

When your replacement is finished, all parts other than the old headband should be reattached to the headphones. If needed, bend your headphones at the hinges to ensure they are properly attached. If there is some difficulty bending, the hinge pins may need to be pushed further in until they are secure. If the hinges on both sides bend without problem and all of the parts are reassembled, your replacement is done.
