Bit off topic here (posted a few weeks ago, reagarding k612's and amps and schiidt etc)....if so mod or admin please redirect to appropriate thread.
The k612's are starting to mellow a bit, but still not exactly mellow. However, I still want to resurrect my old k141's mark 1. The problem is inside the cans, loose wire, last 2-3 times I just plopped on way too much silver solder and some thin wire I found around the house, with some electrical tape for good measure (couldn't quite stretch the original lead to the inside contact).
Question: I need to resolder again, and the original wire just won't stretch to the inside contact, so I need to bridge it again. What kind of wire do I need to use? Material, resistance, shielding, etc? The last attempt worked pretty well until I bumped it again....shame the k612's don't have the mini xlr contacts (BAD!)...
BTW my ancient V-Cans mark 1 are working ok, but find that plugging directly to my sound card at the back of the pc is suddenly working ok (although sound quality isn't great)...have my cans suddenly dropped in ohms? Bizarre...or I was listening to really friggin loud music when I first started posted...or music at very low volumes.
thanks again for advice and help...very much like overclock.net, thank god for enthusiasts on the net! Let's keep it neutral!
