turns out the foam is rotten in both the balls and the cartridge. these must be pretty old. not sure if its worth attempting a fix or not. the ball foam is easy to get but the cartridge foam looks impossible. at this age who knows how long the have left, maybe i will flat rate a couple to shure.
I would be curious to know whether Shure would replace the beat-up bodies as part of the flat-rate repair service they offer. Perhaps if the retainer screw threads are stripped....
