A Closer Look & Exchanging Ear Pads

The Viper V361 Gaming Headset comes with well padded ear and head pads. Red and black mesh covers the interior of the pads. Also a red and black braided cord. 

Here shows the built-in foldable microphone extended. 

A silver Viper name debossed on each side of the headset. Surrounding the silver center is the Red LED bar. Along with a Semi gloss hard metal mesh. 

The top of the headset show the Viper logo in the center of the head pad. 

The next set of photos will show how to exchange the ear pads. This is how I found best to remove the ear pads. While you removing the ear pads yourself never force more than you feel necessary. The prongs holding the ear pads on are plastic and can break. Mine have never broken even after 4 test removals. Just be careful so that you do not damage your new headset. 

First insert the small end of the ear pad removal tool in to the front center of either the left or right ear pad between the lowest point of the pad and the hard plastic, careful not to snag the pad with the point. Then slowing work the large end of the tool toward the outside of the headset until it snaps loose. 

Next insert the small end of the ear pad removal tool in to the back center of either the left or right ear pad between the lowest point of the pad and the hard plastic, careful not to snag the pad with the point. Then slowing work the large end of the tool toward the outside of the headset until it snaps loose. 

At this point the Right ear pad will be removed. But the left ear pad has an additional tab on the bottom of the ear pad. Just insert the small end of the ear pad removal tool in to the bottom center of either the pad between the lowest point of the pad and the hard plastic, careful not to snag the pad with the point. Then slowing work the large end of the tool toward the outside of the headset until it snaps loose. 

You now have both ear pads removed from the headset. Here you can see the inside of both left and right ear pads. Now just carefully exchange the ear pads by pulling the material up and over each tab. 

Then just simply snap the correct ear pads on the correct left and right side. Congratulations you have changed you ear pads.
