Hi,

as the colors are getting better I want to know if the dealers can order replacement parts for those speakers?

I currently have an A1 in black and I like the charcoal sand more! But I don't want to buy a new speaker only because of the color. :-)

And I want to paint my A2, too. But I need a spare part BEFORE experimenting Big Smile

So, can I buy that removable aluminium part from B&O?

I'd be very surprised if they can.

But does anybody know for sure if these parts are available? Is a Beoplay product just a disposable article?
I thought it should be possible to replace the speaker covers as I won't be the only person on earth that want to exchange it!? :-)

Does it mean that I even can't replace the earpads of my H6 if they are worn out?

It's a £199 item, in regards to an A1. Even my TV speaker is more expensive. I'd very much doubt dealers can or are even interested in buying BeoPlay plastic parts - my dealer barely cares about BeoPlay products at all, never mind parts.

Maybe just sell yours to someone else and buy a new one in the colour you want?

I'm sure a part number is available, and therefore order-able.

Whether dealers care about BeoPlay products is irrelevant. Form 2 foam covers are replaceable, S3 covers are replaceable, and even [OEM] replacement wires exist for Earphones (Earset 3i) . If a part number exists, a dealer can order it for you (pending physical availability, of course)... best to just call your local shop. I've even gotten part numbers directly from B&O via a quick e-mail.

Personally, I think I would want the part numbers for my H8/H9 earpads as you also mentioned.

But as moxxey suggests, it can also just be a question of opportunity cost - is $50(USD) really worth it to replace the cover of a $250 item? Depends, I guess.
