Hoping to get some help from a bunch of DT880 owners here.
Ive had mine since 2010 and seem to be having some issues with them. The original cable seems to have developed a short due to bending when coming out of my amp. Id like to fix this by rewiring the cans.
I am a engineer so I feel comfortable doing the work I found a guide that I am assuming is accurate to my dt 880 600ohms (http://www.head-fi.org/t/172825/beyerdynamic-dt880-re-cable-guide-in-progress). My problem is the cabling.. just from the little research ive done it seems like theres a billion different cables and connectors and all of that.
My setup is pretty simple its a nudac to a little dot mkiii to the cans. Right now I have a gold adapter that I use to hook the cans into the amp.. id like to change that. I listen to mostly techno/trance/dubstep and rock and play video games.
Does anyone have a cable brand and connector that they recommend for use with this setup?
One other question.. is it easy to clean the ear pads? Mine have gotten pretty dirty so I was going to try cleaning them but did not know if this was a common thing or if people just replace the pads.
Thanks guys :)
