Many DJs and music enthusiasts have the Pioneer HDJ-1000 headphones. They are excellent DJing headphones and I have been using them for a few years now. Unfortunately due to the poor build quality the HDJ 1000s are prone to snapping above the ear cup, both my pair and a friends have snapped or cracked in the exact same place shown below.
Mine snapped on both sides around a year ago and at the time I looked for a guide to help me fix them. There was one that I found very useful, but the photos were taken after the fix. So when a friends pair snapped, I decided to make a step by step guide to help out anyone else who might have found themselves with 150 quids worth of broken headphones.
Next you need the part you will use to bridge and strengthen the gap in the headphones.
I used a piece cut from a computer power supply, as this is easy to cut and bend into the right shape.
Now you need to measure and cut the part that you will use to strengthen the headphones. The measurements are shown in millimetres. Also make sure you cut the section you need longer than the measurements given. This will allow you to bend the part more easily.
After the work is dry. Get back mixing!
I hope this helps anyone who was in the same position as I was.
