Audeze LCD Headband Comfort Mod
This headband mod will add some much needed space between the leather suspended band and the metal headband, which can cause unnecessary hot spots on the top of your head.
This is what the mod looks like once you’re done. If you choose to, you can cut off the bit that hangs over and it will look essentially stock. (I will be doing this)
The flat face of the headphone yokes is facing forward. Remember this as it will be important for determining the order for reassembly. To remove the yoke from the collar, you must use a flat head screwdriver and gently turn the plastic screw at the top of the yoke. Again, this plastic so be GENTLE!
The metal collars that the yokes “click” through have a flat side which matches the flat side of the yoke.
This whole operation is much easier if your remove the yokes from the collars.
Use a phillips head screwdriver to remove the the four screws holding the headband to the yoke assembly.
The funny thing about these plates are that they both say L and R on either side so they can be mixed up or swapped and it doesn’t matter.
This is what the leather band will look like after making the new holes. The old holes are the sets farthest to the right (the top right, bottom right, second top row on the left and the second bottom row on the left). The new holes that you will make are as follows: Top left, Bottom left, Second Top hole inward, Second bottom hole inward.
To make the holes in the correct location, use the metal side plates as a guide. Line the bottom of the plate up with the top of the old holes and make marks through the metal plate’s hole onto the leather below. Then you can use an awl to pierce the new holes or if you happen to have a leather punch of the correct size, you can use that for a cleaner cut. Now reassemble, but make sure your yoke collars are in the correct orientation when you reassemble or you will have your R and L indicators on backwards.
Hope this helps! This mod made my LCD-2c feel so much more comfortable. Now I can wear them longer than 2 hours without getting a hot spot on the top of my head!
